So in my honest opinion if Dana wants to do George vs Anderson then he has to vacate the belt.
Should Silva also vacate the title?

Hendricks is off base here. Not to say he doesn't have a point however know your roll. This Superfight has been discussed for sometime time now. If its gonna happen there is no chance the UFC has GSP vacate his title.

Vacating the belt is laughable and who Hendricks has beaten does'nt matter in this specific case, Hendricks will still eventually get his shot down the road.

A GSP vs Silva fight supersedes everything in MMA, they're two of the greatest legends there is in this sport. If they finally put this fight on everyone else has to take a back seat, no question about it.

Uh ok Johny, thanks for weighing in on this. I get his frustration, but this guy knocks a few people out and thinks he's in a position to dictate significant financial moves to the UFC?? Simmer down, keep winning, and wait your turn pal.

whats the rush hendricks, if your really the best in the world then keep fighting and stop moaning. GSP earned anything he wants at this stage, not like hes planning to fight some nub kid. even Silva fights at 205.

I'm getting REALLY tired of Hendricks.
The guy just needs close his godamned mouth. We've been listening to him bitch about getting a title shot for over a year now.

That being said, St. Pierre's first priority should be defending the UFC Welterweight belt, and Hendricks is the unquestioned number one contender.

GSP has stated that if he were to go to 185, he would stay there. So, if GSP is serious about that, I don't think Johnny Hendrix is bitching, I think he's just stating the obvious. He has every right to feel this way.

This by the way is coming from me and I'm not a Hendrix fan... I personally think if he's right.. GSP goes to 185 and he and Carlos fight for the vacated WW title, I think Carlos wins the rematch. However, I think at this point they may be more likely to make Hendrix Vs. Ellenberger, and he will win that one.

I like Hendricks and his style of fighting, but someone needs to remind him that he's a very small cog in the machine that is the UFC and as such, he can want in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up faster.

Let's make it simple here. The UFC doesn't give a shit about Hendricks because he's not a big draw and he doesn't make the company rich. And other than educated fans such as ourselves, no one really gives a shit about him either and most people think he's a whiny douche. As long as both the above are true, he'll just have to sit down, shut up, do his job, and deal with whatever the UFC does with him. Does it suck? Yeah. Is it fair? Not really. But that's that's just the way it is unless he can grow a personality and promote & market himself as well as Chael Sonnen.
