GSP's already beaten everybody, and none of his opponents have worked their way up to a rematch. I'm not too high on Hardy's chances to win, but he is on a 7 fight win streak and he's 4-0 in the UFC. There have been more questionable title shots given in the past.

I agree with the op - the only solution I can see is for GSP to face Hardy And Fitch at the same time. Fitch will tie him up while Hardy punches him. Though even then I would bet on GSP.
In all seriousness though. GSP v Thiago could be good. Or GSP should fight a good mw.

(light weight isn't full of cans)

I think they should wait to see if AJ can beat Kos before they ink hardy v gsp deal. If AJ can stuff Kos's TDs and knock him out then Id much rather see him fight gsp.

He is by no meas a bum, and stands a (very small) chance against GSP. You just have to accept that GSP is amongst the top pound-for-pound fighters in the world, pretty much everyone who comes up againt hi is going to resemble a bum.
IM fully aware hes not a newb in fact I said that but he hasnt beaten a top 5 fighter and he is a b level fighter.

Kos vs rumble I believe is going to be the next inline. I jus feel that Hardy needs to prove himself the same way Rumbla has to so it doesnt appear as if the ufc is feeding him bums.

Good idea! Maybe he can alternate between fighting Fitch and Alves every 3 months and keep beating them. Let's not let anyone else have a shot. It's ok though because it's all Dana's fault just like global warming. Seriously this is a garbage thread. I'd neg you if you weren't a gold.
Do what ya gotta do.. But does anyone say shit about Faber and his shot at the belt every other bout. **** no they dont.

Id much rather see a new (deserving) 170er get his shot at GSP and get dominated than seeing Fitch get tooled for 5 rds again.
Swick hasnt proven anything to me either hes not a top five fighter. Who has he beat ?

ZENK, thanks for the red!


When you let go of those Fitch balls for some air, how about you ask him If he really wants that rematch?

While I definitely agree that Hardy should not be fighting for the title, I totally disagree with the notion that GSP fights "bums." He fights everyone... and whoops them all. His resume is by far the most impressive in MMA.

Last I checked Swick and Kampmann were the ones in line for a title shot, and they've both been cleaned out. Hardy is unbeaten since 2006. The only fight out of his last 12 he has lost was by DQ.

Make no mistake, Hardy is for real. Just because he's only had 4 UFC fights doesn't matter in my mind, he's head and shoulders above the majority of that division.

The top 5 in Welterweight (in the UFC) for me at the minute are:

1. GSP
2. Fitch
3. Alves
4. Hardy
5. Daley

GSP has already tossed out Fitch and Alves, give the next in line a shot. I don't think Hardy or Daley will be able to trouble GSP, but can't have him fighting the same 2 guys over and over!

Personally I think it's time for GSP to fight in MW as well. He's an absolute monster for WW and he could easily compete in the MW division. He'd probably tear through it in fact. I'm still desperate for a GSP vs Silva fight

I think hardy is a bum in the sense of hes not on the same level yet or proven to be as any of the top5 ufc fighters. I do not consider him a top 5 more like he jus broke the top 10

Once GSP beats Hardy... who will be next?? Anthony Johnson? Jon Fitch?? Koscheck? .... He does not need to prove anything in the WW division anymore.


I say GSP takes the "risk" and moves up in weight. GSP (vs) Bisping or Marquardt would be good.
Thank you

I have gone through 4 pages and everyone keeps trying to justify why this fight should take place.."He has beaten everyone" they keep saying "he has cleared out the division and the only people left for him are chumps,whats is he suppose to do" posing such a question like the answer isnt as painfully obvious as the white on rice..HOW ABOUT HE MAN'D UP AND MOVED UP WEIGHT ALREADY..

It sucks that dana is encouraging this sort of behaviour because he doesnt want the GSP moneytrain to come to a halt..The way he did a 180 after anderson destroyed griffin was sickening..How does anderson destroying griffin mean GSP shouldnt test himself against him? we all know anderson's achilles heel and we also know what GSP is known for..The story sets itself, maybe anderson has nothing to gain and all to lose..But GSP has nothing to lose and all to gain here its criminal that they are content to have him pad his stats now all in the name of building a legacy..

Just sickening

So is the WW division weak now too? This is exactly what the supposed "weak" MW division has been going through for three years.
