I'm just saying Diego needs to fight Penn or Hughes.
GSP's record is less, but he beat BJ Penn, and had a close fight with Hughes... Diego has a better record, but not against Penn or Hughes, that's all I am saying. They are the top 3. Everybody has "tough" guys in their record but I'm pretty sure you can't argue that Diego has beaten tougher guys than Hughes or GSP (possibly even Penn.)
Penn beat Hughes, and Hughes beat Penn, so I'm pretty sure Penn gets a rubbermatch. Also, a rubbermatch is involved for GSP and Hughes.
You have the top 3 guys who have all fought each other, and all of which have had the belt. Is it really "ignorant" to say that for someone to get a title shot they should fight one of the three current/former champs? I don't see why that is such a ridiculous thought.
To say Diego gets GSP before Hughes, without beating Penn or fighting Hughes first doesn't make sense. For Diego to fight GSP before fighting Penn when penn should be up for a rematch given their fight was so close.
Since Hughes vs. GSP is already set, I'm pretty sure if Penn wins from now until then, he will be next for GSP shot, unless in between then Diego fights Hughes or Penn and wins.
I really think he needs to beat one of those two to be the next challenger.
