when nick goes off the tracks somewhere along the line, hendricks will be right there to step in for him. problem solved, and not a thing for any diaz fan on earth to complain about.

GSP already has all the tools to beat nick IMO, so hopefully he's spending at least 50% of his camp training for johnny. i'm very unsure whether GSP has the right game to beat johnny. all it takes is one opening or one mistake...

GSP vs Diaz will go exactly like Bendo vs Diaz.

Hendricks is an easy fight for GSP after the 1st round. Many think Koscheck beat him, GSP will be much harder fight for Johnny.

maybe. but a big difference between kos and GSP is that kos will look to throw thunder shots on the feet and can withstand anything up to a truck being smashed over his head before he's knocked out. hendricks had to be very careful himself not to get knocked out when fighting kos.

against GSP, that concern is very much lessened. georges has a great jab and some nice kicks, but johnny should be able to let loose more freely. like i said, all it takes is one mistake by georges and johnny can knock him in to next week. meanwhile, GSP's real bread and butter is the takedown and GnP, something johnny will be highly resistant at as an extremely accomplished wrestler in his own right.

of course i'm just talking as a fan and it's not like i've spent huge amounts of time examining footage of these guys, but i still think that hendricks is going to be a legit, very dangerous challenge for georges. and yea, it seems that's always the case with him, but it's also a testament to how deep the WW division is IMO.

GSP opens as 4:1 favorite over Diaz. Seriously does anyone even think Nick has a chance here or is this just people wanting to see him get his ass whooped?

All I know is that I've lost respect for GSP over this nonsense. He's trying to push some absolute BS that Nick is the #1 contender and that it's the fight fans want to see. They wanted GSP/Silva, so drop that nonsense, too. Nick got under your skin? So fucking what. Make him chase you. Make him earn his way to have a chance at you. Make him work for it. Don't just hand it to him on a silver platter (which shows how easy it is to get to you and, makes people question your mental toughness even more). He certainly doesn't deserve it and Hendricks certainly doesn't deserve to be screwed over. It furthers pushes the idea that earning your way to a title shot means nothing and that you can talk your way into a title shot like it's the WWE or something.

He's going to look like a damned fool if he loses. I like GSP and all, and really dislike Diaz, but a part of me kind of wants to see Nick win.

IMO it's about dana white as much as it is GSP.

dana will enforce it one way when there's obvious money to be made, and swing a different way if money is a wash. most fighters probably have their preferences as to who they'd like to fight, so GSP is hardly unique in asking for someone. the difference is, dana white and dollar signs.

fans and the media can bring this kind of thing up all day, but white will just bully them if they're media or simply insult and dismiss them if they're fans. or vice-versa. it's a fine line, i guess, or maybe a big blur.

I still rather have these bad match ups than ever watch womens MMA, I can't understand why they would bring it to the UFC. Do people really enjoy watching women fight, to me its just gross.

I like it. Neither will probably ever again legitimately compete for a title so this is a good "big name" fight.

I don't see anything about Barnett fighting Mir. Only saw that Barnett said that someone hacked his Sherdog acct.

I''m not a Mir fan, but I've been looking forward to a Barnett vs. Mir fight for a while. That's a perfect return fight for Barnett which I think he has a good chance to win.

Can't wait to see Lauzon choking the life out of Miller.
