Anderson Silva vs. GSP @ 185 lbs.

Michael Bisping vs. Luke Rockhold 3

Jacare vs. Romero 2

 

 

^^Real matchmaking that maintains sporting integrity. More money for the UFC too.

Rockhold and Bisping are 1-1. Finish the trilogy.

Anderson Silva vs. GSP does bigger numbers than GSP vs Bisping and makes more sense with GSP's inactivity. It's a more exciting fight period and can only happen now if ever, winner can get a title shot.

Jacare vs. Romero 2 makes sense and will solidify a #1 contender to get passed up controversially by the winner of Silva/GSP.

People will complain no matter what. Match up the champ with #1 and people will complain that they missed out on a super fight. Set up a super fight and people will complain that the top ranked guys got skipped over

Why 185 anyway? And not at his old weight class? Him vs Woodley would be a good scrap.

GSP isnt even a big WW.

Probably because he is friends with Wonderboy and thinks Bisping is a good fight stylistically.

The UFC has to give him a title fight. If they don't, then the "Champion's Clause" in his contract will be voided and he'll be one very huge step closer to free agency. He knows his value on an open market.

I think it's hilarious how he wouldn't fight at MW when Silvia was champ, but now after a long layoff he's ready to fight the MW champ.

 

Mikey Bizzle should feel disrespected and I hope he beats the fuck out of Georges

Bisping's desire for a big payday should not be allowing GSP to sneak his way into this undeserved title shot.

If the UFC is going to give anyone a title shot under those type of circumstances then Rockhold is the right guy for the sporting aspect and can draw a quality payday for Bisping.

Put GSP vs. Anderson Silva on the same card.

Jacare/Romero 2 needs to be a 5 round fight.

People want to see HIGH STAKES dangerous fights. 

Bisping vs. Rockhold 3 is emotionally charged with genuine dislike, competitive history and proper long term outlook for the MW division.

GSP vs. Anderson Silva is a LEGACY fight. Not just for them, but for the UFC. It has been built up and hyped for years.

Then Jacare/Romero 2 will settle the controversy over who is the true #1 contender.

AnthonyWeiner - The UFC has to give him a title fight. If they don't, then the "Champion's Clause" in his contract will be voided and he'll be one very huge step closer to free agency. He knows his value on an open market.

who is going to pay him equally to the UFC?

Bellator probably would pay more.

A single PPV event, self-promoted (or with a boxing promoter that knows how to promote) with 200k PPV buys would crush the money he makes in the UFC, even at 800k-1m PPV buys.

It's the difference between owner and labor. He's not Conor, but he's still a pretty big draw. Ari Gold has to know that.

Nonsensical. For GSP to garner max dollars he needs maximum exposure and the top competition.

Without the UFC brand the facade that GSP is the best is not possible.

Newsflash...the titles have never mattered in the UFC except as a marketing tool. The UFC has no internal ranking system and has no concern whatsoever about the logic of title shots and contender pathways except in their relation to PPV buys.

That's bullshit and it proves you have zero business acumen. GSP could get a bigger contract because he is a draw. (ie Bellator in canada) Bellator has payed former UFC fighters well (otherwise they wouldnt have signed) plus you are forgetting that GSP can get sponsorship money he otherwise couldn't in the UFC because of Reebok.

The sport evolves quickly.

Middleweight is a murderer's row.

GSP needs to prove that he can hang with a fighter like Bisping at this stage. The Count has won 5 straight at Middleweight..

Anderson Silva vs. GSP is the right fight for many reasons, mainly because Anderson is relevant at MW after beating the #7 MW and battling Bisping back and forth, plus the fight has been built for years.

GSP vs. Bisping is not authentic. It's not as real as it gets.

GSP doesn't want to fight in Bellator, he used them for leverage.

The fact you think that GSP would ever fight in Bellator proves you have zero business acumen.

You're talking a bunch of WHAT IF nonsense and I am talking reality, where nobody cares about Bellator or GSP without the UFC.

Tis the way things roll when you're the kind of living legend someone like Ben Askren can only jerkoff to in his dreams.

I'm just thinking about what Luke Rockhold would do to GSP.
 

Ouch

Apparently GSP left for long enough that many are forgetting his last fight.

 

sgotwalks you have to move better man, take your head off the centerline. The way you're postin on these threads I just see a stationary target asking to be picked apart.

Maybe a change of camps is what you're looking for.

It's a tough night in there with these elite MWs. Hopefully Georges knows what he's signing up for. He's got a smaller frame than Nate Diaz. 

Is GSP gonna vacate another title and leave another division in limbo if he wins?
