Zahabi: Someone is going to break

by Ben Fowlkes | source:

"Georges is a pressure fighter and so is Jake Shields. The first guy, in my opinion, to show signs of wear from the pressure is going to lose. It remains to be seen who that's going to be."

Lately GSP's title defenses have been contests where his opponents were almost immediately put on the defensive and kept there. But in Shields he faces a fighter who will bring the fight to him. Then it's just a matter of who can stay on the attack, Zahabi said.

"Georges and Jake Shields both like to get in your face and keep the pressure on. That's what's going to happen, but there's going to be one guy on the offense and one on defense. It might seesaw back and forth for a while, but one guy is going to break eventually and end up spending more time on defense. That's the first sign of somebody breaking. You're going to know what's going to happen after that.

 i almost feel like GSP and his camp are over doing it. it seems like they are hedging, so if gsp loses they can say we told people all along how good and dangorus shields was..

That's because GSP is the most humble guy in the sport, and zahabi is a great mouthpiece (in communicating GSPs sentiments).

Gsp's camp is doing a better job of trying to convince people that shields has a chance than shields camp is.
