  2. Dean Panas says:

    Is this to much of a dream: Diaz beats GSP, Condit beats Diaz, Rory wins his next three and gets a shot at Condit for the belt. Wouldn’t that be fun :)

  3. Jamie Locke says:

    I don’t see GSP vacating his throne to any of these guys. I think Condit poses the biggest threat to the belt, but he has to wait for Diaz to recieve his beating first.

    Ummm I would have thought that Condit would have been guaranteed the winner of GSP/Diaz. Why risk losing before that?

  5. Cody Rempel says:

    Because he’s a real fighter and real fighters fight, not this Rashad Evans bullshit where he doesn’t want to risk losing his shot so he keeps sitting out… and if he waits he’ll have been out of action for almost a year for no real reason!

  6. Jason says:

    I totally understand that Cody, just seems odd that he would step aside from a title shot if he didn’t have a guarantee of a future shot at some point. A loss would definitely delay that guarantee.

    And yeah, it could be up to 6 months after this event before the next title fight depending on injuries/medical suspensions… it’s a long time to sit out and not fight for sure.

  8. BigBoi says:

    Right now GSP is only fighting 2-3 times a year. A smart move on his side but you’re right it makes for long weights between shots at his belt.

    Diaz didn’t show anything in his fight with BJ that would make me think that he is a significant threat to GSP. A threat for sure but not one that GSP can’t overcome. Given the staggeringly large gap in their respective wrestling games look for GSP to spend five round dumping Diaz on his head resulting in another lopsided GSP win and a whinny Diaz claiming GSP didn’t come to fight.

    Well-loved! Thumb up 7 Thumb down 0
