Maia is possibly the next champion at WW. He out grappled and controlled Fitch like he was a child, and we're talking about a Fitch that specifically knew that Maia would want to grapple/ground fight, so you know he trained hard for it.
Honestly I don't see GSP getting out of the hands of Maia and I believe he gets subbed on the ground. Hendricks.. eh, we'll see. I think GSP gets another decision unless he pops GSP a good one, which is possible, even Condit almost finished GSP with that head kick.
Condit rocked him yes, but didnt almost finish GSP, as soon as it was on the ground, GSP was composed, reversed and finished the round on top (some say winning that round)
Owns... U say the same thing leading up to every GSP fight,
Kos will KO him, Shields has the best BJJ and will submit him, Condit will break him and finish him cause he is a killer, Diaz will beat him up and submit him....and now Hendricks... Give the champ some due, I understand wanting to see a new champ at WW but the hate is ridiculous!
I think GSP ties silva with a win over Hendricks and then Maia (if he beats shields) that will bring us to spring 2014, a nearly 33 year old champ tied with 10 title defences, Lawler could be top 5 by then, E. Silva could be top 5, Lombard could be 2-3 wins from a title shot,
3 more defences and he retires/ moves on from WW , that's giving rory the division by the end of next year
