Yes. This is what I want.

Silva vs Weidman
St. Pierre vs Diaz

Much much better than:

Silva vs St. Pierre
Weidman vs Bisping/Belfort
Diaz vs Hendricks

GSP was going to get clowned by Silva and we all know it.

I agree, Hendricks presents match-up problems for GSP and I feel he has a very good chance of winning that fight. Nick Diaz on the other hand is a more favorable fight for GSP but is a dangerous opponent all the same.....

I've come to understand that the UFC is show business at the end of the day. They need to put on shows that generate the most revenue although sometimes it doesn't necessarily make sense at all.

Diaz getting the title shot is strange when it comes to ranking or wins and losses. But there isn't a sanctioned ranking system.

In the grand scheme of things it's a lot better enforced than Elite or Pride. The latter being heavily corrupted although we got to see some crazy fights in that org.

Besides, this fight was suppose to happen anyways.

GSP by brutal GNP for all 25 minutes straight.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Meh.

Just gonna have to support Bellator as much as possible, and honestly if I was Hendricks I'd tell Dana to shove it. Viacom has as much money as Zuffa does he could probably even make more money or just as much in Bellator as he does in the UFC.

Diaz will be flinging his hands around pretending that he scores points doing that while GSP tries to hug him extra tight and cuddly.

The best fight evar!

(seriously, though, I'm pumped - I love this fight).

This pretty much sums it up. But it's a fun fight nonetheless.

This.



Jinny Hendricks will get his shot but I want to see GSP vs Diaz probably more than any other fight right now.
