Of course, yeah (laughs). Honestly man, anyone of those welterweights on that card, that card is stacked and any one of the three that win, that's who I want to fight. Obviously, I'd rather not fight Georges. He's my friend and training partner for a long time now.

But, like I said before, I'm not in the position to be turning down fights, so. I'd rather not fight him, but, I'm not going to turn down any fights."

Makes sense. He lost his job and is looking for a way back in. Turning down fights is not the way back in.

He made this statement when he announced dropping to 170. GSP said he wouldn't fight iirc. Phone Post

I know GSP advised Nate to drop to 170 but its kind of an odd choice if you dont want to fight the champ....and if GSP doesnt want to fight him. I have a feeling they might actually go ahead and fight I could also see Nate agreeing to fight and GSP turning it down instead.(since hes actually in a position to turn down fights)

Its also odd because who drops down to settle for the #2 spot? Rory has been in this weight class all along so its not surprising they wouldnt fight.

Marquardt is a wrecking machine.. This is a fight that GSP definitely doesn't want. Nate trains with him, knows what to expect w/ wrestling, has better stand-up and is just as big. It's pretty obvious when gsp says no and Nate says yes. Phone Post

crossfire - Nate vs Rory ! Phone Post
That's would be at least 6 months since rory is fighting Condit later this year.. It nate wants a big fight In the UFC he's going to need to take a short notice fight or wait for rory Condit or gsp vs Diaz, or Hendricks vs jake either way it's going to take some Time Phone Post

nick diaz nut hugger -  This will be a great comeback fight for GSP after he loses his belt to the goat in March.

You jump to conclusions too easily. Let Diaz make some press events before we start talking about even stepping into the cage with GSP.

Signed contract is signed. Phone Post

And? I guarantee part of that contract involves press events. hes gonna have to uphold his end of the bargain and the past couple years he's had a really hard time with that. Part of the fight game is showing up to do press. Even if you're Mike Tyson and callin people faggots and saying how much hes going to fuck some white boy.

I doubt a fight between the two would actually happen.

Nate says he would take it. Makes him regain favor from the UFC brass. Looks like he's down to take on anyone. If the fight is brought up by the UFC, GSP turns it down in favor of other contenders, not wanting to fight a teammate.

Nate looks better in the eyes of people who were disappointed in him, GSP has a lot of leeway due to being such a great champion and doesn't lose any stock in the eyes of the UFC, and they only need to avoid the fight long enough for GSP to go up a weight class, retire, or for one of em to get beat. Which, considering both of their ages and times in the sport, probably will be occurring for both of them in the next few years. Phone Post

Nate spends most of his time training here in CO, I think he would actually take the fight.

It looked sharp against TWood Phone Post
GSP sets up his wrestling just "slightly" better IMO.

Did anybody else think Nate dwarfed (maybe a bit much) Twood?

I can't see that happening to GSP.. Phone Post
