    Sucks for Condit, I think Kos takes him & there goes his big payday if he does

    No idea
    Who is ready to be next?

    Edit: If Jake gets a big win, I'd guess him

    As odd as it sounds.... in this scenario, Dana probably hopes Diaz beats GSP.

    If Kos and GSP wins... followed by a Silva win over Sonnen, Dana will actually put together the GSP/Spider Superfight.

    Who the fuck would want to see that fight after they have both lost?

    I would be more interested in seeing Anderson go up to LHW, and seeing GSP get his belt back.


    Besides, there is only like a 0.0001% chance Silva loses to Chael.

    his post was a bit confusing but he said if, GSP, Kos & Silva win he can see it being GSP vs Silva
    It took me a 2nd read to figure it too

    I meant if both GSP (over Diaz) and Silva (over Sonnen) both win.... I think we get that superfight. Their is simply no one else for either to fight. I guess Ellenberger maybe for GSP. I know Leben wanted another shot at Silva, but that isn't going to happen for a little while now. Does anyone really want to see Silva/Munoz?

    What I meant by Dana hoping Diaz beats GSP is that if Koscheck beats is current #1B contender in the WW division (since Diaz is now the #1A contender), you can't really promote GSP/Koscheck III.... as has been said before, no one wants to see that fight again. So, if the superfight were to happen, I guess you would have 2 divisions on hold for awhile.... although you could say with the GSP and Silva dominations, the divisions have been in a holding pattern anway. I'm no MMA expert so feel free to tell me I'm wrong. I have a thick skin. LOL

    No way does Dana want Diaz to win but everything else i agree with
    If Diaz wins he gets more power & harder to deal with
    If GSP beats him soundly Diaz goes back down the card with less reason to open his trap & bitch

    The only way Diaz doesn't talk crap is if GSP finishes him.

    One thing to keep an eye on is that Diaz has a very active guard and GSP is not your typical LnP'er (contrary to what some fans believe) GSP is always looking for a finish. We could easily see a technical fight on the ground (I doubt GSP wants to keep the fight standing), but since GSP will be the one on top, he will get the decision.

    Back on topic, if Condit can't beat Koscheck, he doesn't deserve GSP, so I think the fight makes sense.

    Finally, with GSP and AS both injured, this was the perfect time to make it happen, but since it hasn't, I pretty much given up on the AS/GSP super fight.

    I've said it many times, but as a GSP fan, I have no desire to see him get demolished by Anderson. I would rather see Silva move to LHW and fight some of the top guys there.

    Then again, I personally think Bisping deserves a shot if he beats Miller (More than Chael) and If Palhares can get 2 or 3 decent wins where he waits for the ref to actually stop the fight I think he could be a contender.

    Honestly, I'd be ok with a Bisping shot, and a Sonnen/Palhares #1 contender.

    I think Bisping still needs one more quality win, if he beats Miller he would be on a 4 fight wins streak with wins over Jim Miller, Akiyama and Rivera. None of those are top 10 fighters. He needs a win over a Vitor, Sonnen or Munoz. In fact I think if Bisping wins, a fight vs Munoz for #1 contender would make sense.
