I wouldn't have a problem, as I thought he won his last fight. But Diaz will need at least 1 he isn't eligable until summer/late summer.

Rory won't fight GSP.

Maia? I mean a fluke injury win over DHK and a win over Rick Story isn't nearly enough.

Ellenberger was just TKO'd.

Not sure why people think there are so many 170s who are close to a shot. There really isn't by my count. Kampmann/Hendricks winner is the only viable one right now.
Kampmann, Hendricks, Marquardt, Diaz.

Then Ellenberger if he bounces back with a few wins.

If GSP wins, he would have the winner of Kampmann / Hendricks in early 2013 (March / April). Diaz can return in February, so that could set up a potential summer GSP/Diaz fight if GSP beats the winner of Kampmann / Hendricks.

I think there's a lot left for GSP at 170 still - I'm just not a fan of stalling the division for another 3-4 months to have a GSP/Silva fight.
