I would actually pay to see Nog vs BJ. Ive never thought of that one. Ive seen Marcelo tap out Ricco, so maybe BJ could pull off the biggest upset in MMA history.

Time to disect this little baby!

Here is a list of reasons why BJ getting a title shot at WW is ok while Anderson getting one at LHW is not.


1.BJ is former WW Champion, Anderson isnt former LHW Champion.
This is true. The only reason BJ lost the WW title was because of contract disputes. But you forget that BJ already had a title shot against Matt Hughes and he lost. He hasn't done anything in WW division that would warrent him getting another one.

Quote:
2. BJ lost a controversial spilt decision to the current WW champion.
Controversial? Hardly. At first I thought BJ won because he did more damage in the first round. But after thinking about it BJ hadn't done anything worthwhile in the next two rounds. Georges took him down at will and kept BJ on the ground. Even though it was LnP, Georges was still in control of that fight while BJ couldn't do much of his back. Therefore Georges won that match.

Quote:
3.Anderson has no such grudge match with the current LHW Champ Forrest Griffin.
Won't dispute that!

Quote:
4.There are a ton of fighters out there that can make a claim for a LHW title shot, Machida, Thiago Silva, Chuck, Wanderlei,and even Rashad are possible opponent for Forrest.
Can't really dispute that!


5.GSP has no such opponents, he has cleared out that division. He has beaten everyone in the division handily with the exception of BJ.[/quote]

Not true! There is still Thiago Alves and Diego Sanchez. MAybe even a rematch with your boy Kos. Besides that BJ hasn't cleared out the LW division. He still has Tyson Griffin, KenFlo, Frankie Edgar, and a rematch with Sherk.

As you can see I only half agree with you! Anderson doesn't deserve a title shot at 205. Hell, I don't think he even wants one considering that division belongs to his buddy, Machida. But BJ getting a shot at the WW title is riduculous. For one, he wasn't as dominant in LW division as GSP was in WW. He only had one title defense and now he is going to stall the LW division. It was bad enough that division was stalled because of Sherk's torn ACL and battling with CSAC because of steroid accusations. So why shouldn't people complain?

By the UFC way of judging things, your right GSP won the fight. But it is still a flawed system. Even though Pride is dead, they still have the best system for scoring MMA. Under those rules BJ would have won. That is the only reason I call it controversial.

And GSP has cleared out all the possible WORTHY opponents. If Alves wins he deserves a shot, but I dont think he owuld be ready for December like the UFC wants. Diego doesnt deserve a title shot because Kos would get it beofre him and Kos doesnt deserve it cuz he already lost to GSP. The UFC could afford to bring over Sheilds and Condit. The UFC has great WW's but alot of them have already faught. They need some new talen to mix things up. If they did we wouldnt be arguing bout BJ and GSP fighting.

Calling it controversial because he would of won under a different (arguably, not definitively) better scoring system, is completely ridiculous.

JDUN Pride had the best scoring system. Come on now judging a fight that way led to fights being won in the last minute and making the judges forget about the first 19. Look at Ninja vs Henderson.

The 10 point must sucks. But Pride's sucked 2.

Why are guys now riding Alves. Before all I heard is "He dosen't deserve a title shot becuase he can't make 170. What if he did that in a title fight?"
Am I the only one who was reading this?

It wasnt flawless by any means but I think it was better than the ten point must system.

And am I all of a sudden the only one who has called the GSP/BJ fight a controversial decsion?? Im pretty sure any time that fight is talked about, it is called controversial. All controversial means is that it could have gone either way. And alot of people thought that BJ won that fight, hence the "controversy".

Maybe because we're not the same people who said that? Not all Alves fans, or GSP fans, have identical views.

Its obviously controversial, we're talking abouts its merits right now, but your reason for its controversy is ridiculous.

This is the best fight that can happen right now. I don't see any reasons to be upset over it. We all want major fights, this is one of them.

Why complain?

Does Alves deserve a shot? hell no. Does he deserve one more than BJ? of course.

Anyone who is paying attention can see that.
