people say gsp deserves his shot against serra but hughes never got his rematch vs gsp so imo hughes is next in line. gsp vs fitch would be sweet and people say it takes 2 fights to get back to title shot that would be number 2 for gsp. shelve serra hughes til ready and have gsp fitch in march. then mid summer they can have title shot for the winners

GSP vs Fitch is the only realy good match that can happen in the interim. B/C Hughes cant fight till his title shot.


huh? how does that work??? This would be Hughes title shot, same as BJ's title shot is now for an Interim belt Hughes could be as well

GSP will surely be training and pretty fit as it is, 5 weeks is plenty enough time imo, and he should be so confident of beating Hughes again i really think he would take it IF the ufc try and make it

COME ON DANA MAKE GSP VS HUGHES 3 HAPPEN AT UFC 79


i didnt mean for the interm title i meant in this long wake. the only good match up for GSP

Also, another thing is that UFC 79 needs a good match to replace this... what would it be if it's not GSPv.Hughes ?

Why is everyone talking about an interim title? This fight would've happened long ago but the UFC wanted to hype it by having them coach against each other.

So the majority of the delay is not Serra's fault, IMO

No but with a back injury you never know how long you will be out. This means the UFC will have a lot of work to do, I wonder if they'll make a new promo(hopefully) and a new countdown lol.

This sucks, Dana should just put Hughes back up with Serra for 81. Sure it sucks, but it's not a big deal.

Screw this. I know he didnt do it on purpose but this is jsut a way for him to keep the title longer without fighting. First guy to fight him will kick his ass

Oh god Serra gets hurt and its the UFC or Dana's Fault.The reason we had to wait soo long was because their on TUF.Does it suck the fights not happening yeah it does.But to say the UFC asked for this and that stuff is complete crap.No one asks for anyone to be hurt and not able to perform.I suggest to those of you who like to hate on Dana the Fertittas and the UFC to go find another hobby to watch... like stamp collecting or something.Im sure they can fill in the "already stacked" card with another awesome fight.After bustin Dana's and the UFC balls for years hey...we finally get Silva Liddell which is a main event its self.
