That being said, a more fair arguement would be the fans here don't really want to see a GSP main event again. It really isn't needed. They stack the undercard with Canadian fighters anyway.
Chuck Liddell was born and bred in California, not Las Vegas. Had he ever defended it in San Luis Obispo? No? No home turf advantage.
GSP is only on every fight cards in Canada because if GSP fights in Canada its a guaranteed sold out show. The first time GSP doesn't sell out a Canadian stadium, they'll stop putting him on every single friggin card.
