Hendricks is easily the #1 contender.

Dolce's opinion on who the number one contender is doesn't mean jack, he's just supporting his guy and thinks he's the number one contender and I agree with him. Hendricks should get that shot, I just don't know if people are aware of how big KO'ing Fitch and Kampmann are.

How can opinions have credibility? Everyone has it's own.

I think he is clearly the #1 condentender but its all about what fights people want to see and I think the grudge match aspect of a Diaz fight makes it more interesting to a lot of people. I also think come saturday another big contender is gonna stick his head out, Penn or Rory somebody is making a statement and staking that claim come saturday.

I think GSP likely fights Hendricks and then Diaz fights the winner of Rory/Penn.

They can most definitely have credibility. For example an NFL experts opinion certainly carries more weight and is listened to much more than some random persons opinion. Because the expert is more credible.

Maybe not the opinion itself, but the person giving the opinion.

If hendricks was promised the fight then he should get it, Plus the MMA math does not have Diaz as getting a shot without winning probably 2 fights imo.

You think Diaz/Penn could rematch? I highly doubt that.

I think if Diaz doesn't fight Anderson or GSP he will get Kos. I would say FItch/Maia winner but the timing doesn't match well.

Who cares if Rory makes a statement? He won't fight GSP anyway so I'm not sure what he is even doing.

Hendricks is the #1 contender. Doesn't mean that fight has to happen. I just watched Kos/Hendricks again last night and Hendricks doesn't have much other than some power. His striking is very average from technical/diverse stand point. Throws few combos. His wrestling is good but not in the same sentence as GSP's or Kos'. His cardio for 5 rounds probably isn't as good either. I mean I don't see him having much of a chance. Basically a sprawl and brawl. Brawling won't work vs. GSP.

I'd rather see GSP/Diaz.

He's much more relevant in the MMA scene than you will ever be, random internet guy.

Not really, I'd imagine some random posters here have more MMA knowledge than Mike Dolce, let alone myself.

Uh, I don't think so.
