Forget GSP vs Anderson, I want to see this first.
I doubt GSP's chin is "suspect"- Serra's punch was behind the ear that wobbled him and led to the TKO.

I thought Alves looked great vs. Koscheck- but Kos was coming in off a 2 week notice- which definitely showed last night.

GSP is a different animal completely than Kos and has waaaaay more tools to utilize against Alves.

I do think this fight would be an epic match-up and it sucks that it will be delayed for so long but when it goes down I'll be pumped to see.

I gots GSP winning this but it will be super tough.

Isn't gsp fighting BJ? If BJ wins, then he would have to fight Alves, right?

BJ and GSP are fighting in at the end of Jan. on the Super Bowl card, but no worries GSP ain't losing to him.

And with that long of a layoff I dunno if Alves will want to fight again before that match-up.

Thiago would be his toughest opponent yet, if he beats Penn.Those leg kicks are brutal. It should be noted though that GSP would have a 6 inch reach advantage against Thiago. I don't think GSP will be able to get him down all the time successfully. Alves is just too strong.

I really think Thiago should get another fight in before the possibility of GSP, especially considering it could be a while yet!

he probably will have to. Simply because BJ is ****ing up 2 divisions with his massive ego.

He deserved the shot BJ is getting IMO. But hey I've only been saying that for months .
