‘UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields’ Extended Video Trailer


(Props: UFCinterviews)

The extended video preview for UFC 129 has hit the Internet tubes, and as usual with these things, we get confident words from all the headliners, intercut with Joe Rogan raving about what beasts they are. Here’s a cheat-sheet…

Georges St. Pierre says it’s an honor and a privilege to be part of all-time biggest gate in UFC history, and promises to give the fans a good show. Welterweight title contender Jake Shields says he has no problem fighting in hostile territory — which might be the first time that any part of Canada has been described as “hostile territory.” Says Shields: “Everyone has holes. He’s human. Once I get on top of him, I’m going to pass and put him away.” GSP respects Jake’s six year, 15-fight win streak, but says that fighting for a UFC world title is a different game. Particularly when you’re fighting Georges St. Pierre.

— Speaking of champions who will be coming into their fights as massive favorites, featherweight king Jose Aldo will be defending his belt against Canadian veteran Mark Hominick. Hominick respects the fact that Aldo can end the fight quickly, and from any position, but feels that the champ hasn’t fought an elite striker like himself. He’s looking to make Aldo move backwards for a change. Aldo ain’t skurred. The one-man Brazilian demolition-squad is prepared for Hominick no matter where he tries to take the fight.

— Finally, Randy Couture says the constant questions about his longevity and retirement don’t bother him (even though he raises most of them himself). Couture has had his eyes on the “Rubik’s Cube” of Lyoto Machida for a long time. “I’m gonna come forward but I’m not gonna stop,” Couture says. “I’m gonna come all the way forward. The cage is only so big. You can’t run forever.” Well, technically you can, but only if you don’t mind sabotaging your career.

@ noizy - I don't think the hospital can find his birth certificate. I think he was born in Kenya.

Shields is a violent animal!! there, i said it again, no laughin....maybe a chuckle...but im going with the jbj theory of willing things into reality. If i visualize it in my head enough times, shields will win. haters gonna hate, war shields!
noizy- April 6, 2011 at 3:22 pm
I don't believe Couture was born in 1963. He should show us his birth certificate.

Waxedpants is absolutely right. Shields won't get one single takedown on GSP. He might be able to get a reversal that might have him get on top (briefly), but he won't hit a takedown.
Waxedpants- April 6, 2011 at 1:11 pm
Shields can't take gsp down -- mark my words --- gsp will laugh at his take downs

I like Jake btw .. no disrespect.
Waxedpants- April 6, 2011 at 1:10 pm
as a half Canadian ( yes you can be half Canadian) I will always cheer for GSP

He is a fucking hero here in northern New England ---

lol what's a "Rudy's Cube" Randy?

I think the Shields v Pierre bout will actually be pretty entertaining. Like someone already said, Pierre will probably employ that jab and stand up and try to do what he did to Kos. However I do see Shields getting 2-3 takedowns in the fight. They won't last for long, Georges is way to explosive to be held down by Shields for any length of time. I definitely see GSP taking this to the 4th round, testing Shields cardio. GSP takes the fight, but Shields will put up more of a fight than most think.

As for Lyoto v Couture Machida will come out tentative as always but he feels the desperation of this fight. Unless he completely dominates the first round, in which case he rides out the decision, I think he pours it on in this fight. 3rd TKO for Lyoto.

Lyoto-Couture fight will be boring. Half of it will be Lyoto trying to jab while running away from Couture, the other half will be Couture pressing Lyoto up against the cage and holding him there. Fight will end with judges decision, either heads or tails depending on the toss of the coin.

People who call the lay and prey strategy boring forget that MMA is a sport. And like any sport, you want to maximize your chances of winning. Now if that means a boring fight for the fans, well then so be it. If my money, safety and career's on the line, i'm gonna damn well use the strategy that gives me the most chances of winning. If all you wanna see is blood and and gore, go watch drunk idiots fighting outside clubs. if you wanna see the best fighters pitting their skills against each other, watch MMA.
The GSP and Shields fights is gonna be great. I predict GSP's jab is gonna come into play a lot to and he's gonna keep Shilds at a distance. It'll be interesting to see at what point GSP takes Shields down.

That still pic of Randy looks like if Joe Rogan had a baby with Ben Saunders

@ agentsmith - LOL! I guess I wasn't reading it closely enough the first time, but now that I do... great fucking comment!
agentsmith- April 6, 2011 at 10:30 am
@ RwilsonR: Actually I was saying it sounded gay, but your answer is good too.
LOKI- April 6, 2011 at 10:13 am
Handy gonna get so raped there gonna replace him with Treat Williams in 'Expendables 2'.

No way Aldo losses to the banjo kid from 'Deliverence'.

There hasnt been a Canadian riot like Jakes gonna cause since GnR/Metallica in '92!

@ Turd - I think you're right about the GSP haters.
On your other note, I'd like to think Chael Sonnen has nothing better to do than to post comments on CP. Just like I like to think that Rousimar Palhares is inspired by our support on here as our comments are read to him by Murilo Bustamante (pretty sure Hoos doesn't read good, and I know at the very least he doesn't do it in English).
Turd Furgeson- April 6, 2011 at 10:02 am
@everyone

Pretty sure Chael_Sonnen is just a dude that's really not Chael Sonnen makin jokes. Don't y'all think Chael has better things to do (like talk to athletic commissions and Oregon courts about how he really didn't do all that crap they're pissed about) than talk crap in the CP comments section?

GSP just got too scared... ok, careful... after Serra knocked the shit out of him. Still wins, though.
Morningwood- April 6, 2011 at 9:51 am
I know I get frustrated watching GSP because I know he can finish fights. But, on the other side, it's still amazing to watch him dominate fighters like Kos', Penn, Fitch, and basically anyone over the past couple of years.

I have only seen a few Shields fights so I don't know what to expect from him. But, just going on what GSP has been able to do the past few years, I don't think it's his time to fall yet.
ikeelyou- April 6, 2011 at 9:43 am
dude....why the fuck do you call yourself uncle chael? that is so gay. And i love how you say you will mow anderson down AGAIN. you lost douche...don't forget that
intercept440- April 6, 2011 at 9:21 am
anyone who thinks gsp fights are boring. needs to go back to watching pro wrestling. gsp is the baddest fucker around in WW division, you guys need to wake up and realize not every fights is going to be a ktfo or armbar submission like you want it.

dim mak- April 6, 2011 at 9:09 am
amsterdamheavy--my bad--i just couldn't see the fighters that clearly, but thanks for setting me straight. i guess quarry's tattoo looks kinda like edgar's.
Karmasucks- April 6, 2011 at 9:05 am
Chael, good to hear Jake is helping you with your triangle defense. Since your so convinced he will beat GSP, are you helping Jake with his "low" testosterone paperwork?
alty71- April 6, 2011 at 9:00 am
ok first of all I think jake is a great fighter but he isn't bring much to the fight that gsp hasn't seen. and @chael_sonnen your a joke if you couldn't figure out how to get out of or stay out of a triangle this far along in your career your your a joke buddy.
amsterdamheavy- April 6, 2011 at 8:56 am
@DIM MAK: Is that a joke bro? Frankie Edgar? Thats Kalib Starnes running away like a bitch from Nate Quarry... Sorry if I missed some kind of uber-subtle joke attempt.
Chael Sonnens Balls- April 6, 2011 at 8:43 am
No that's not me I never said that!
What accent is that anyways? It sounds nothing like me.

For some time now I have questioned GSP's heterosexuality and my doubts were confirmed today when at the 2:55 mark GSP admits he will: "dick ate & take him out" ?
