Well, i wish the UFC had said no....we are giving the shot to the number one contender. If they want to be taken seriously as a sport (Something i dont give a damn about honestly, but they do) Then they have to stop this shit, can't be just handing out title shots to who brings in the most money, they claim to be a sports organisation, its being ran more like a wrestling promotion....

Plus GSP is pretty rich already and i really do wonder how much better this fight will sell. Is Diaz really huge money?

Is it really how huge money Diaz is? Or is it how many people will pay to see him get demolished?

I think it's more people know how bad the Hendricks fight is going to be. If Hendricks has a bad fight against Ellenberger and Maia has a good fight against Fitch I expect Hendricks to be bypassed again.

What about the Hendricks fight do you think is going to be bad? I can agree with you in a way, I don't think it's going to be quite the fight everyone thinks it will be. I'm not afraid to admit I'm a Hendricks nut hugger, and I do believe it is a bad match up for GSP but perhaps not as bad as some people believe. I definitely think that there is a very real possibility of Hendricks missing out again if he has a poor showing.

I think the fight goes one of two ways, either Hendricks KTFO of GSP in the first minute or GSP jabs him to death for 25 minutes.

I think the 2nd option is a lot more likeley than the 1st.

I think people are discounting Hendrick's wrestling ability too much. Sure this is MMA wrestling and not pure wrestling, but I think GSP will find it hard to grind Johnny out from the top.

Seeing as how he failed to outwrestle Mike Pierce, Josh Koscheck, and Rick Story I don't see how one can be confident in his abilities against GSP.

So do I.

And I'm not saying this to hate on Hendricks, the guy got jobbed by Carlos Condit who should have given him a title shot. If it were up to me I would declare the SF belt an interim WW title and have Tarrec Saffadine fight Hendricks for it with the winner facing Rory Macdonald. GSP will fight Maia and at the end of the year one of GSP/Rory can decide to relinquish their belts and move to MW or fight.

This situation is similar to the Weidman vs AS situation, the only difference is Hendricks has earned his shot at GSP at this point without a doubt, and Weidman leaves us in doubt.

I don't have to buy PPV's, so I can bitch about match-making all I want. =)
