White: GSP could fight Silva or Hendricks next

 

Today UFC President Dana White had a scrum with the MMA media and discussed, among other things, what could be next for welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre:

"I am literally going to call Georges St. Pierre today and see what he wants to do [next]," said White. "I think if Jon Jones beats Chael Sonnen [at UFC 159] then we have to wait [for the outcome of] Anderson Silva and his fight against Chris Weidman. Maybe [Georges] wants to fight Anderson if he wins [at UFC 162]."

"If Georges says to me, 'I want to fight Anderson,' do you think I'm going to go, 'No you're not, you're fight Johny Hendricks!'" White said.

"It would not vacate the 170-pound title if he lost that fight [to Anderson]," White said. "He could still go down [after a loss to Silva] and fight Hendricks for the [Welterweight] title."

I think you should look at the context of my post, nothing I said conflicts with your opinion. MMA is prize fighting The prize is predicated on PPV buys and attendance, attendance PPV buys are predicated on popularity.Its all about money not competition so how the hell does earning a title shot factor into the equation.

^^^^ How about you just cancel your account and stop watching then?   Jesus you are shitting on GSP for possibly wanting to move UP in weight and challenge the GOAT for fuck's sake.

Everything you say is true but unfortunately MMA is a not a sport but a spectacle, like WWE except they really hit each other.   MMA is coming FULL CIRCLE and getting back to it's ROOTS, it's PRO WRESTLING BULLSHT KAYFABE CARNIVAL tough man ROOTS.   WELCOME BACK HOME, MMA!  Welcome back to the carnival, where opportunities are not decided by merit, no, that merit shit is too boring.  MMA is no different than TNA now, where merit takes a back seat to entertanining rednecks with carnival shows.

I think it's more like getting a a badass remote control car for Christmas, only because your dad quit his job, making the car that was promised, a fixer upper 65 mustang, if you were patient and got good grades, not good idea at this moment.
