If he doesn't it ruins the division IMO.

You'll have GSP vs Hendricks for the title.

Rory looking to fight top 10 guys in meaningless fights that won't contribute to the title picture.
Condit with 2 losses in a row.
Diaz with 2 losses in a row.

I suspect Rory will challenge GSP eventually. After he's done milking Tri-Star and feels he's ready.

How many times does he get to fight in his home court. I'm a big GSP fan, but man they should do this in SF, San Jo, or of course Stockton somewhere in Northern California. I can only imagine the crowd.

Pretty much how I feel.

At the same time though, they're really feeding Diaz to the wolves here. He's been off for a year. He's coming off of a loss and he'll be fighting a very prepared, and very pissed off Gerges St. Pierre.

GSP by whatever he wants. This won't be close in any sense.

Screw Montreal. I was hoping for Toronto then I may be able to go.

GSP never had back to back fights in Montreal so I was figuring they would to Toronto.

Will GSP ever fight outside of Canada again?

How many times does this need to be said?

The Ufc is a business GSP is a cash cow and the Canadian market is the only place they charge Vegas prices for Cards and usually sell-out.


UFC 139 in San Jose (Nov 2011): $1.2 million (13,832)- Great Card...13,832 (9496 paid, the rest comp'd) price ranges were $50,75,150,225,300, and $400

You know what I realized GSP can retire and go straight into movies Van Damme style. They would just have dub his voice like in the old style kung fu flicks.

He's signed on to CAA now which is one of the big four agencies in Hollywood. Wouldn't that be something if Diaz was his retirement fight.

The Ufc has a card scheduled for the third week of September in Toronto, if he escapes Ufc 158 healthy...September is 6 months later and would be a good and likely venue for Hendricks (Unless Silva comes up again)
