    welterweight title fights have been fucking stagnant for the last 2 years, finally some exciting matchups and different contenders then hughes/serra/gsp

    serra had to go and fuck it all up last year
     
  3. serra, winning, serra's back problems, plus TUF show = top of the division (and the champ, who I don't consider a top of the division fighter) was out of action forever

    i know thats what joe silva told alves, but i think he has to fight one more time before he gets his title shot (unless they want to shelf alvest until december or so)

    Then Rich Clementi moves up and beats "Rumble" for the title. :noes:
     
  8. Why do you think Rumble is a better matchup?

    GSP muscles fitch around. Check out Fitch's fight with Roan Carneiro. GSP is a terrible matchup for fitch.

    truth. and Johnson would be on his back the entire fight with GSP
     
  10. no, he might roll to his stomach as GSP pounded him mercilessly, like Trigg and Sherk did. :bigthumb:

    not saying that any of them will win, they will all lose to gsp, i just think it's gonna be some interesting matchups and there will finally be movement within the welterweight division not this unbearable stagnation at the bottom

    which is the perfect example of why gatekeapers often get their contracts cut.

    Serra my ass that was all Dana white. His douchebaggery effectively fucked up the contendership for the welterweight division.

    Fitch will go down. I think it will go down just like the josh koscheck fight. Plus fitches kicks are sub par. GSP will control distance and take him down or knock him out.

    only if serra loses to GSP

    if serra beats GSP again i don't see how they can give hughes the title shot when he just lost to GSP
