If you missed the premiere episode of UFC Primetime: St-Pierre vs. Shields last night, don’t be scared, homies, we got you.

The show was as good as it predecessors, giving us a glimpse inside the camps of the main event fighters from UFC 129 April 30.

Not surprisingly, the the producers played up the respectful sportsmanship of St-Pierre who gave props to Shields’ ground game and politely pointed out that he chooses to test himself against opponents by beating them at their own games.

“Ee ‘as one area that ee is vary, vary good at and it’s ‘is grapping. All da guy dat he has fought in da past were afraid to go on the floor wit ‘im and dat is something dat I am not afraid to do. I always wanted to test myself wit the best fighter at ‘der best game. I like Jake Shield. He’s just at da wrong place at da wrong time. I train harder den I ever train,” GSP asserted throwing in a tired cliche for good measure. “I’m de best Georges St-Pierre dat I ever been. The fight dat I been waiting for four years is gonna happen in front of fifty thousand people. It’s gonna be incredible.”

At first, it seemed like GSP’s jiu-jitsu coach John Danaher was wary of his charge trying taking the fight to the ground and engaging Shields in a grappling match.

“I don’t see Jake Shields in any sense as an underdog going into this fight. Jake Shields is an outstanding practitioner of jiu-jitsu. He’s shown a remarkeable ability against all odds to pull people into his area of specialty and win fights. This is the guy who has the grappler’s equivalent of a knockout punch,” Danaher said. “He just keeps winning. He can get a guillotine choke and finish everything. People often say, ‘Well, they’re both black belts. You must understand that there are black belts and then there are black belts. Just because they’re of equal rank doesn’t mean that they’re the same level on the ground.”

Then Danaher punked us all by giving St-Pierre props for his knack for surprising his opponents by beating them at their own games.

“One thing that’s notable about Georges’ career is that he’s faced many great submission specialists in the past, and what’s really remarkable is that he beat many of those specialists within their domain, within their area of specialty.”

Shields didn’t pull any punches or give any PC answers when talking about the fight.

“I just want to dethrone him. He’s considered the best in the world and I’m the person to beat him. I’m going to show everyone he is human. I’m gonna go out there and take the belt from him.I like Georges, but if I get his arm and he doesn’t tap, I’ll snap it. I’ll bash his head in,” he said matter-of-factly. It’s what it is. It’s a competition, but if I have to hurt someone, I’ll do it. I’m more motivated than ever. I want to go out there and just smash him. I thrive in these situations. I’ve been winning a lot longer than he has, so it’s something that I’m used to doing. It drives me harder to want to go out there and beat him.”

First of all, what the fvck's up with all the spammers? God damn. It feels like a fvcking flea market in here.


I don't wanna sound bitchy but, (well that just made me sound even more like a bitch.. oh well.) Why is it that, after all the years GSP's been in the sport, you guys still have to make fun of his accent? I mean.. the guy's trying at least. And believe me, he has improved a lot. As a french canadian myself, I know how hard it is to have to learn a new language when you spoke french your whole life. I know how sometimes his sentences lose their sense, or his grammar is not made of gold... But man. We get it. He's got an accent.

How many times have you seen him post-fight, lazily relying on a translator to answer Joe's questions? Never. Have you also notice that, on the opposite of a lot of fighters', his post-fight interviews are actually good? Instead of getting the usual "I wanna thank God, my Lord and Savior.. blah blah blah... trained hard.. blah blah blah.. tough son of a bitch... blahblah my after party blahblah..", we get real answers, like the strategies he used to get the win, almost scientific explanations about what went right or wrong. All that in a second language he probably didn't have to learn until he entered the UFC.

All I'm sayin' is, why not give the guy a break? We should make fun of Anderson Silva. "Hello!" "Yes" "hem... help me Ed Soares!"

Tank you vary much. I 'ope dis did not make me a 'uge cry baby.

Note how they spent time promoting the other guys in the "Scrap Pack" who aren't even fighting in the UFC, let alone on this card. That's the upside of the purchase, kids.

i miss the combover--kinda charming in a dorky old man sorta way. you don't usually see people under the age of 80 wearing it--sorta like a handle bar mustache, but without the hipster cred.

Damn, thank god Danaher shaved his head... I was almost going to call the police because I swear I have seen someone with that comb-over, driving a van offering candy to children.

God GSP just keep the fight standing and pick his ass apart. Jake Shield's standup is crap in a basket.
Fedor Penn- April 14, 2011 at 1:03 pm
If GSP's BJJ is so great how come he can't submit anybody? This is going to the be the worst fight ever and I'm forced to root for Shields.

"waiting for for four years"...nothing wrong with that statement, just made me sound like a retart reading it out loud. In my best French-Canadian accent.

it was crazy seeing my muay thai coach on prime time last night
ArmFarmer- April 14, 2011 at 11:50 am
To be fair.. Penn and Serra ARE top control specialists.. and he outgrappled kos and hughes. He fought them more than once, beat them at both areas.
knucklesamitch- April 14, 2011 at 11:49 am
I don't see GSP losing, but Shields coming in and taking the title most get us some cross promotional UFC/SF fights sooner...So I kind of want it to happen.
uzithrasha- April 14, 2011 at 11:45 am
if he fights everyone at there best game why did he hug hardy for 24 in a half minutes
LOKI- April 14, 2011 at 11:34 am
@Danaher-So wait...Hughes, Kos and Fitch are kickboxers and Serra, Penn, Alves, Hardy etc. are top control specialists?!
Stak40- April 14, 2011 at 11:33 am
I'm a fool because i dont believe in Jake Shields. I cant wait for GSP show everybody Shields isnt on his level. Why does it seem like everybody forgot he kind of was gifted that decision over Kampman.
