If he loses he likely moves up to MW, gets a free title eliminator main event and then a super fight. If he loses maybe he moves down to face Rory but at that point his team likely sticks with Rory.

By the time this bridge comes along Anderson should be in his 40's.

We saw what it was like where GSP fought "top" guys like Shields, Koscheck, Hardy, Alves...they weren't good fights. Having Rory knock out terrible main events is better for everyone. We get better title fights, Rory becomes a bigger star, and if GSP/Rory ever does happen it will be one of the biggest fights in UFC history.

They could give him Hendricks or Saffadine or maybe if the fight with Condit is as good as the first one we'll get a trilogy.
