St. Pierre vs Diego Sanchez
I think GSP should fight Diego Sanchez next... the winner of that fights Matt Hughes for the title. Karo Paresian was suppose to fight Hughes in ufc 64 until he got injured. (Joe Riggs replaced him) After Karo came back he had to fight Sanchez to redeem himself.... Karo lost. GSP hasn't fought for 5 months now. If he is gonna fight Matt Hughes again it's not gonna be for at least another 2/3 months. Hughes has to rest from his fight with BJ Penn. UFC 66 is the earliest Hughes will be able to fight again.. but Chuck Liddel & Tito Ortiz have already signed to fight each other at that event. There's like a 98% chance they aren't going to hold those 2 title matches at the same event. So ufc 67 at the earliest we'll see Hughes again (I bet). By that time st.pierre will have been out of the game for 9 months. That's a long time. Diego Sanchez has already proven himself for a title shot against Karo Paresian. Who else does he have to fight in the next few months before he gets it? Nobody... except st. pierre. 5 months is long enough to rest for GSP. By the time ufc 64/65 comes around Diego will have at least 2 months rest and GSP will have at least 6. 9 months is too long to be out of the game and come right back into a title fight. By the time these 2 fight, IF they fought in Oct or Nov they that leaves the winner with 2 months rest at least.. the time that Matt Hughes is due again. Tim Sylvia and Andre Arlovski fought for the title in 59 & 61... 2 months apart. Joe Riggs is fighting every month practically. Or let Hughes fight the TUF4 winner in Jan at least.. then fight sanchez or gsp later on even. That way we're still getting the entertainment of gsp and sanchez in the meantime. St. Pierre should have to redeem himself, against Sanchez, like Karo Paresian did. Karo and GSP are big names to finally earn Sanchez a title shot. He doesn't need to fight nobodies anymore. Besides, who doesn't want to see GSP and Sanchez fight anyway?
That's my opinion.
Use my poll... how many agree/disagree?
