One more fight?????

Who is he going to fight now? Carlos Condit, the guy who just lost the title fight? Jake Ellenburger, the guy who his last victory TKO'd not too long ago? Demian Maia, someone who basically only has one win in the division?

I'll be the first to admit it. GSP vs Nick Diaz is an interesting match-up that I've been wanting to see for a long time. It's a good rivalry that will generate plenty of money and attention. But as a UFC fan, I am not okay with someone who has done what Hendricks has done not getting the shot that he deserves.

In the end, I know the UFC is a business that places its importance on profit. But Johny Hendricks not getting a title shot is not only unfair, but a complete disservice. If I were Hendricks, I wouldn't take any other fight other than a title fight, and if the UFC can't come to terms with my demands, I'll leave the UFC. This is the equivolent of Alexander Gustofsson beating Shogun, Lyoto Machida, then Dan Hendorson and not getting a title shot afterwards. Even if this is about the profit, the UFC better be careful with these types of decisions because it's beginning to come to a point where there's no point in fighting anymore. And when that happens, maybe the fan's wont boycott the UFC, however a lot of these dominant but unpopular fighters will leave the UFC and fight in growing companies such as Bellator, or OneFC. Then the UFC will have trouble recruiting new guys because you'll be fighting in an organization where you can win 10 fights in the row but if you don't generate profit, you won't fight for a title.

In other words, this is a good short term move, but in the long run, it may very well hurt the UFC.

Cant complain.

Hendrix deserves it, but I'm sure the UFC will give him a very winnable fight in the meantime.

There's beef between GSP and Diaz. It has to be settled. I think it will be more competitive then many people think.

Last time, this was my most antiticipated fight since Haye/Klitschko. Now, all time.

You really can't complain when GSP is the one who wants the fight...

Plus Dana White, Joe Rogan and many others including myself thought Diaz beat Condit and his running away tactics...

Not to mention Dana and the UFC wants it. GSP's trainer wants it. Diaz's trainer wants it. The majority of people want it.

But yet the few that don't think their opinion should out-weigh the majority. It's laughable.

Hmmmm

Sounds like Randy Couture vs. Tim Sylvia. And Randy wasn't even in that division for years when he got that HW shot.

Everyone acts like the UFC doing this is new. Wake up people. Get a dose of reality.

Eh GSP/Diaz is the bigger fight so I get it. But it's getting a little ridiculous. Edgar loses and gets an instant LW rematch. Diaz loses and gets an instant WW title shot. Sonnen loses and gets an instant LHW title shot. It's getting a little much. I strongly dislike both so I don't know who I will be rooting for.
