I think it simply comes down to the fact that this fight was already set up. We, the fans, already were sold on it. A lot of people, correctly or incorrectly, also thought Diaz won the fight against Condit.

I think its an easy sell and really not a far fetched fight. It certainly isn't as bad a Jones vs. Sonnen, which is happening because a magic unicorn said so.

And our dream of the Diaz brothers both holding belts is possible again.

Meh. Have to feel for Hendricks, but sometimes you have to give the people what they want. And the people want Diaz vs. St. Pierre. I'm stoked.

Still not sure why anyone is excited to see Diaz get beat up for 5 rounds. He couldn't even bring the fight to Condit. What makes anyone think he'll do better against GSP, who's in a whole different league.

I feel bad for Hendricks. He is pleading Dana to give him the shot through Twitter.

For me, I am happy with either fight.

If GSP stands with Nick, Nick will box him up.

But GSP won't stand with him

From a fight performance standpoint: Hendricks should be the next challenger.

From a promotional standpoint: There is no "mandatory" challenger (aside from returning champions and interim champs meeting), and Diaz vs GSP will bring lots of buys.

Personally, I'm not mad either way. Both would be good fights. If GSP makes it through one, make him fight the other. If he makes it through both, he cements himself in UFC/MMA history as the most dominant Welterweight champ and then he can go on to doing whatever "dream fight" he feels up to.

Let's just hope Johnny doesn't lose his bid like Jake Ellenburger or Mark Munoz. He's best served to just rest up and bide his time now.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

GSP vs Diaz makes sense.

Hendricks is impressive against fighters he knows won't take him down that he can unload on.

But against wrestlers like Koscheck and Pierce he only just got by with split decisions.

I don't know if he's ready to take on a wrestler like GSP.

If Nick and Nate held both belts in 2013, I have two friends here in Van who would rage quit watching MMA.
