Diaz not in the discussion and no more challengers?

Unless Diaz implodes or Georgey goes back to the old GSP Diaz will rake that guy that was fighting in the ring last night. You think if they stood up for 5 rounds like that soft face Georgey would have walked out of that ring. Think of those power body shots making old Georgey cry. If he was crying about blurry vision think what Diaz would have done to him.

And I'd love to see him take Diaz down so we can finish this whole wrestle hump thing once and for all. I cant wait until the last string you haters hold on to is gone. You'll have to start saying he wasnt born in this country wheres his birth certificate.

I really don't see any legit challenges at 170 for GSP anymore. I definitely thought Shields was the best contender in a while and he didn't seem to stand a chance.

I think Diaz would be tooled and Condit would be outclassed.

Even in the 1st two rounds while GSP was winning he wasnít winning handily, or at least as handily as I think people are claiming. He edged out Shields in the striking department by only a couple of strikes per round (except for the 5th where Shields clearly outstruck him Ė yes he did). Thatís what made this fight so damn awful on both fighters part: GSP was content to edge out an opponent who he clearly outclassed on his fight by a couple of jabs per round and Shields who needed to get it to the ground but seemed clueless or incapable of how to do so.

Even when he caught GSPís leg and had him offbalance there seemed to be no sense of urgency or commitment to try and get this to the ground?
Just realize, if Shields could have slipped one or two punches in any of the first three rounds while also landing an extra punch or two and gaining a single takedown he could have been the new Champ, and perhaps rightfully so. Being so close to being the champ with such a dreadful performance is pretty sad in my book.

Wasn't the best fight ever but thats how GSP fights go now and thats main reason i wasn't all that bothered watching this event live so v+ it.

Nick Diaz only one i think has real challage now too GSP throne just really intresting match up because GSP now likes to exploite the weaknesses of opponments, but that match you wonder what GSP will do because Diaz good at his stand up and good of his back.

Your hate for GSP is clouding your judgements.

GSP dropped Shields 3 rounds in a row. Thats far from a couple punch difference. GSP dominated that fight. Just because he didn't dominate one round doesn't mean you re write the story of the whole fight.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

He dropped Shields once, the other time was a slip.

It was an embarrassing fight for both fighters.

But props to him, he officially has no more challenges for a while at welterweight.
Losing sight in one of your eyes and still beating Jake Shield is mentally weak? You're crazy man.

GSP fought through adversity and props to him for doing that. Again, it's just my opinon. To me, he is more physically imposing and strong than he is mentally and that shows in his fights. Btw I never said weak, read my post again.

You're right, Dan gassed hard and got dominated as a result, which is probably why he doesn't want to fight at 185 anymore. But he rocked Shields early- in the first round- and as I'm sure we all know, with Hendo, all it takes is one overhand right. And that early on in the fight, it SHOULD have been game over for Shields.

All I'm saying is Shields is a tough S.O.B.. That head kick landed flush and even had GSP tried to capitalize like he should have, I still don't know if he finishes Shields.
