Why is there such a demand for GSP to move up the dude is vary happy being the best at 170 and is content just dominating everyone why move up? To lose? He must feel more comforatable at 170 he trains with nate who is one of the best 185ers so I'm sure he knows how he would do. I think GSP is smart when he is done he will be the greatest hell he is the greatest 170er of all time.

Yeah, I'd rather see Kos vs GSP if Kos beats Daley than Shields vs GSP if Shields just lost to Hendo.

If Shields somehow wins and leaves Strikeforce with the title (not the belt, just the title), then you've got a big matchup against GSP.

The notion of BJ, GSP and Anderson each moving up a weight class is very intriguing though.

I'd rather see Paulo Thiago get a shot before any of those other guys get a rematch with GSP. I know three fights ago Paulo lost to Fitch, but he's getting better each fight and seems to be bulking up as well. He'd probably get mauled like the rest, but I'd rather see another top guy that hasn't had the challenge of facing GSP yet, compared to seeing the same guy fight GSP again with the same EXACT results as before, which we know to be true.

either gsp moves up to middleweight gives up the belt
or shields gets signed and given immediate title shot

they should just retire the WW division until GSP retires for good

Quite obviously Jake Shields, who will get destroyed.

I would much rather see Paulo Thiago in there with GSP.

Sure you can say he's only beat 2 contenders and he's not ready, but honestly, a ground ace KO'd koscheck and Swick, without utilizing a ground game, This is the only fight I can see where it will have GSP not wanting to stand OR go to the ground, I think this would be a solid match up, and would probably force GSP to stand, that would make so many of you casual MMA fans who bash the hell outta GSP in some other threads happy. He lost to fitch yes, but now he knows to use his amazing BJJ to counter the wrestling, rather then try to stand up and go for the KO.

Nick Diaz > Jake Shields but I wouldn't be surprised to see Shields there after he gets beat by Hendo.

Nick Diaz has no chance against GSP? I would put my money on Diaz any day of the week. I think Diaz would bloody GSP in a standup fight...and if GSP wants to take it to the ground...Diaz will submit him. That is just my opinion anyhow.

Hmmm i reckon a UFC Welterweight Tournment would be interresting. Simular to the old Pride style tournments. Whereby you dont even know your opponent till on the night

GSP
Kos
Hardy
Fitch
Alves
Rumble
Semtex
Thiago
Kampmann
Swick
Perhaps: BJ Penn, Diego Sanchez, Nick Diaz Jake Shields?

I say BJ and GSP both bump up a weight class.



and anderson should also jump up to LHW and take the title from lyoto so i dont have to listen to him on any more ppv promos. though not until after he fought gsp at middle


jake shields isnt gonna beat GSP, he isnt gonna beat hendo

iDana is bringing in cristiane cyborg to fight GSP.

Dana, it's not a good move. it'll back fire. GSP will be all gentlemen like and end up losing because he won't want to hurt her.

Great! now we have a girl as the welterweight champ in the UFC....it's a downward spiral and nobody wins here.

I have no interest in seeing giant woman fight brock, shane, jds or cain and that's where this is all going.

Last time WW got a little thin for a champ he brought back Royce Gracie. Let's hope we get something a little better than that this time.

... Although if it's GSP v. Rickson I wonder how many will still go for Rickson via armbar.
