Hughes > Penn
GSP > Hughes
GSP > TUF4 Winner
GSP > Diego Sanchez
#1 Contender match, Karo > Koscheck
GSP > Karo
There you have it.
Also note Koscheck is a much better fighter then people give him credit for. I know Koscheck from his high school days in PA, my sister went to school with him. Dude learns things with a snap of a finger. Give him another year and he will be a top contender, I guarentee it. He's already one of the best wrestlers in the welterweight division, his submission skills are getting crazy good, and his striking isnt up to par as he'd like it but damn...watch his fight with Diego then watch the fight against Goulet...MAD improvement.
i agree with you about KOS the dude is improving leaps and bounds..and he will wear the belt..im sure of it..GSP might very well be champ for a long time but until he beats hughes I cant put him in that category of untouchable champ..i just think this division is so deep that no fighter will hold the belt for that long...
