Is Rory Mac willing to fight his boy Georgess? I guess it doesn't matter cuz Hendrix will have the belt.

If this is a contender match, it could get us closer to GSP-Silva.

I see MacDonald disposing of the Juggernaut, and I don't see much reason to think Hendricks will beat GSP (he's had close decisions with Koscheck and Pierce).

If these fights play out the way I think they will, there's really only one logical move for GSP: up.

worst case scenario is if both Rory and GSP win since they wont fight being teammates and all. this could set up for GSP moving weight classes but he still seems reluctant to do so WW could go into limbo

I would hope they would do the same that GSP and Condit did
