Future is GSP, dude is the youngest of the bunch with the most talent, one win over Hughes, and you will see GSP with that belt for a long time. I posted this in another thread but here's how I see the welterweight division in the year 2006/7

Hughes > Penn
GSP > Hughes
GSP > TUF4 Winner
GSP > Diego Sanchez
#1 Contender match, Karo > Koscheck
GSP > Karo

There you have it.

Also note Koscheck is a much better fighter then people give him credit for. I know Koscheck from his high school days in PA, my sister went to school with him. Dude learns things with a snap of a finger. Give him another year and he will be a top contender, I guarentee it. He's already one of the best wrestlers in the welterweight division, his submission skills are getting crazy good, and his striking isnt up to par as he'd like it but damn...watch his fight with Diego then watch the fight against Goulet...MAD improvement.

i agree with you about KOS the dude is improving leaps and bounds..and he will wear the belt..im sure of it..GSP might very well be champ for a long time but until he beats hughes I cant put him in that category of untouchable champ..i just think this division is so deep that no fighter will hold the belt for that long...

Here's how I see it written in the same fashion as Alex_DeLarge's:

Penn > Hughes
Penn > GSP
Penn > TUF4 Winner
Penn > Diego Sanchez
#1 Contender match, Karo > Koscheck
Penn > Karo

Now this is very plausable and could very well happen. If BJ gets past GSP, which he very well could, then he's got a cakewalk. Just like Hughes has had the last couple years, some comparabley easy opponents to dominate. There's almost no way the TUF4 Winner will pull out a win, and I think Penn is too much for Diego, although it might be a close fight I think BJ can finish it in the 2nd round at least. And then another close on with Karo but I still think BJ can beat Karo too. But that's just how I see it happening in the next couple years.

Hughes said it himself in an interview, he has about another year and a half left in him. If he looses th belt to either Bj or GSP he will definitly get another shot at the title before his career is done, definitly cant count em out... I see Hughes demolishing Kos, Karo and Sanchez.... As far as GSP and Bj they are much better than those three by far. Bj is the hardest hitter out of the bunch and is one punch away from getting the belt back.... Yes, it's pretty deep at welterweight

Hughes only having 1-2 years left? Now that surprises me, the guys not that old. Also dont forget about Jon Fitch he's a guy literally no one talks about and could be a potential dark horse in this already stacked division.

By far the UFC's best division. I think that BJ will destroy Hughes, but you can't really be sure at this point.

I don't think Karo will get a title shot, as much as he deserves one.

I think Sanchez is probably next in line, and he'll lose. He's a good fighter, but not as good as BJ or Hughes or Rush.

After that they have to give the shot to whoever wins TUF 4.

You know what's bad is I can't even call GSP Rush now because the user Rush has officially ruined it for GSP. Now everytime someone calls GSP Rush I'm gonna think of that dumbass...

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
