I agree. but from a business standpoint I totally get it. I believe the IV ban could have something to do with the move to 185. He is also 36 and weight doesn't cut as easily.

I love me some GSP but I can't help but to feel kind of sorry for Yoel Romero. What's the guy have to do to get a title shot?

They're also unknowingly clearing the division for the next title shot. I don't agree with GSP getting an immediate shot, but what're you gonna do?

Bisping --> GSP
Yoel --> Jacare (makes a clear #1 contender)
Weidman --> Moose Saucey (winner is 1 more fight away from shot)

Agreed, Yoel is not the most marketable fighter in the MW division. But he's beaten some killers to get to the top. Guess he's going to have to wait.

This is by.

Long time GSP fan and always will be. But this is the same crappie from Dana over and over. Not to mention GSP is so undersized for MW. He couldn't handle Hendricks well at 170. And if he manages to grind out a win over bisping (who I dislike but consider the favorite) he's going to get crushed by the Weidmans, Jacares, Romeros.

Not even a tune up fight at MW to feel it out. Just want to make sure the UFC gets every $ right out of the gate. Total bs.

I'm w/ you 100%!! I think GSP should've went down a weight class, imagine how much of a monster he'd be at LW!

Sad truth. Yoel & Jacare (assuming) would be a co-main at best. Most hardcore fans won't even purchase a ppv with Yoel & Jacare headlining. If they sign to fight each other, it'll be on a stacked ppv card. They could put them as the co-main for Bisping & GSP.

Probably picking Bisping?!?!
GSP at LW is a great idea, but I think his 1st MW fight should be Anderson Silva.
