Relax. He needs to win one more fight to get his shot (maybe he could just wait and not fight at all). His earning potential is obviously way higher in the UFC than it is fighting in front on 1000 fans in an org that might not even exist in a year or two.

Hendricks is a rightful #1 conteder.

But I can do nothing but laugh at people who are getting their panties in a bunch because it "isn't fair".

Life ain't fair kids. If you believe this stuff has anything to do with fair then you have been kidding yourself for a long time. The UFC and MMA, boxing, WWF, kickboxing has done this for years. It is about what sells. The UFC is a business for gods sakes.

People say well it "isn't becoming a sport". Well not many "sports" have a format where a matchmaker picks fights. They have a regular season to determine seeding. And then a playoff or tournament to crown a champ. The NFL would send a combo of the Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys and Giants if they had a format that picked a "worthy" opponent. But that isn't the format so please don't compare it.

Diaz fought about even with a guy who got the shot. GSP would rather fight Nick. Majority of fans would rather it be Nick. The UFC would make more money off a Diaz fight. GSP's trainer calls Diaz the #1 contender.

WHAT THE HELL MORE DO YOU WANT? All parties involved in anything to do with MMA would rather have that fight besides a smaller minority of fans.

Sorry but majority wins out every time. Sorry you fell in the 18% of people that would rather see Hendricks.

The best fight evar!

(seriously, though, I'm pumped - I love this fight).
Add the Karate kick out of nowhere. He throws the most obnoxious strikes...almost to get a reaction from the crowd and opponent...roflz! Then he raises his hands up egging em on...

There's nobody quite like them. I don't see fear in them even when they're getting beat up...that's a incredible rarity.

It's pathetic that the UFC makes fights all based on money now. I know some idiots will defend it by saying "it's a business of course it's about money!" Well guess what, if it's all about money and money is everything then I'm going to save mine by streaming this fight online FREE instead of giving any money to Dana. See? Two can play at the game of maximizing earnings!

Awesome. Johny Hendricks is a bad mother****er, and does deserve a shot at the belt, hell, he's knocked out Fitch and Kampmann in successive fights, but come on, GSP vs Diaz is an immense fight, a dream fight. Nick has been talking shit about GSP for years, and GSP wants this bad. If there is any fight that will light a flame under GSP, and bring back the old Rush style, it's a fight with Nick Diaz. I hope this happens, because I would love to see it!

Did you just figure out that as a consumer you have the right to not buy the product?

Diaz lost his last fight, hasnt beaten a top five welter weight in a very long time, has had a very long layoff, and is an increbily favorable match up for GSP (he has horrible wrestling and GSP has the best top game in mma). I understand GSP's reasoning for wanting that fight instead of Silva or Hendricks, but it is still disappointing.

No, not really.

If anyone needs to win it's the guy who lost his last fight and got suspended after, not the guy whose on a five winning streak with one of those being a KO victory over a guy whose been ranked in the top five for half a decade, spending the majority of that time as the number 2 fighter in the division.

I'm not going to sit here and boycott the UFC or the PPV because I love the game of MMA but I really hope Bellator grows.
