hendricks deserves it

if his next fight isnt a title fight, id be pissed if i was hendricks

personally, i think gsp denies the silva fight (cant blame him), and hopefully he doesnt receive too much flak for it

Silva would destroy Jones, it would be too easy. KO or submission.

GSP should have no trouble taking silva down, so i can't agree. not that i think his chances are better... silva is too gifted not to have the edge IMO.

Jones would control him on the ground much like Sonnen did in the 1st fight except Jones could actually do some damage.

I'd favour Jones over Silva but not by much. Silva would be a heavy favourite over GSP.

Key word being "almost".

I'm no Jones fan but I think he'd be too big and too strong. I'd pick Jones in a decision over Silva.

it's hard for me to see gsp get anything other than a decision win over silva. the likelihood of that happening is also hard for me to see.silva's chin is just ironclad. it's much easier for me to see silva win with a KO or sub.

then again, i was huge on kampmann tonight. maybe his striking is overrated but damn, i think his bigger issue tonight was his defense. hands down, little head movement, not switching up stances = no bueno.

silva's takedown defense is still really good even if he struggles w/ wrestlers the most. his hips and knees should stuff a takedown or two and off his back, i don't think gsp gets into half guard as easily. in the end, i just think silva is much bigger naturally and it would show on fight night.

i'd look forward to just about any matchup though. hendricks? will be interesting for sure. diaz? say what you want about him but almost all his fights are entertaining. the build up would write itself. i know diaz is out of the running for now but any of those three fights is fine by me.

Silva's reflexes are on another level, he is too gifted a striker, too strong and too big for GSP. Not to forget mentioning that he has a spectacular chin.

But you are right, I can't say GSP has no chance but rather a slim chance. GSP would take Anderson down, might even dominate for a couple rounds but it'd be a matter of time 'till either Silva tagged him or locked in a sub and that'd be all she wrote.

mostly agree, but i can at least see a path to victory for GSP.

i'm just glad to see a lot of online MMA followers be so negative about the fight. IMO it's an unequal matchup that will prove nothing at the catchweight it's fought at, will create further delays in two divisions, and whose only real point is to funnel large amounts of money from very casual fans towards those at the top. i certainly hope GSP calls it for the bullshit that it is... just that i have a sinking feeling that he'll give in in the end.

by contrast, an actual legit matchup that needs to be worked out ASAP is the rousey-cyborg match. DFW, if he had an ounce of integrity, should make that fight a condition for a women's division being opened in the UFC. or at least something along those lines... you know.

Why Diaz? Losing to Condit means you earn a title shot? Not to mention he got suspended, then threw a hissyfit and retired. If he were to get a title shot ahead of Hendricks then the sport would lose all credibility.
