Welterweight has never been better, and St-Pierre is lined up to face the most difficult challenges of his career. An emerging contingent of contenders appear capable of beating the French-Canadian fighter. And not just in the maybe-he'll-win-a-round-or-make-it-competitive sort of of way. Like actually stopping St-Pierre from doing what he wants, and maybe, just maybe, stopping him outright.

There are, in my estimation, three fighters at 170 right now that can do this: Johny Hendricks, Demian Maia, and Jake Ellenberger. And others appear to be legitimate threats. Carlos Condit is young enough and dangerous enough to pull something off if he gets another shot.

Tyron Woodley looks specially built to test GSP. You’d be a fool to sleep on Tarec Saffiedine, even if wrestling isn’t in his blood.

First up, according to UFC president Dana White, comes a deserving Hendricks, whose fight of the night brawl with Condit stacks up just fine against anything 2013 has produced thus far.

He couldn't sub Fitch, he's not subbing GSP.

I'd go with Hendricks. Phone Post

AdrianK - Rory MacDonald

Actually, this.  But they'll never fight.

Rory is the future at WW

Hendricks followed by Ellenberger.

Guys with HUGE power that can stop the TDs potentially.

Nobody really but if I had to choose someone it would be Hendricks. I just think he will be able to control the distance and Hendricks will gas out from throwing a million bombs and none will land

If he can do what he did to Fitch he doesn't have to sub GSP. Besides, he'd have 2 more rounds to pull one off.

I think all 3 are good threats for GSP. If those are his next 3 opponents he's not going to win his next 3 fights.

Hendricks may power through GSP's strikes in order to land some heavy bombs of his own.

Maia is strong at WW and may be able to outwrestle him.

I think Condit showed up Hendricks holes in his game. He has great take downs and a great left hand but if you fight smart you can avoid these weapons and bring the fight to him.

Condit is the future WW Champion.

Ellenberger. That guy hits like a truck and has solid wrestling. I'd bet on Ellenberger over Hendricks. Robbie Lawler doesn't have the TD defense to give him much of a fight.

maia has no chance at all imo.john and jake...guys with power who might be able to stop a take down or who could maybe take gsp down. maia gets worked standing and taken down when ever gsp wants and he is not subing gsp off his back.

GSP will have to fight MacDonald eventually unless one of them going to move to another division or GSP retires.

Hendricks and Jake have 2 rounds of cardio to get it done in. If GSP doesn't get clipped early, he'll coast. Rory in 2 years will be in full prime, while GSP will have lost a ste. Fair fight. Demian Maia presents an interesting challenge. I think he's actually the most dangerous if GSP employs the TD game.
