    Truth.

    I don't want to see him move up until he clears out the LW division.

    I have said before I would rather see BJ clean out the lw division before this fight. It helps build hype and there are guys deserving of a shot at BJ. Theyw ill lose, butthey still deserve a shot

    So what about the guys that have earned shots like Florian and Griffin if hegets by Sherk...They deserve a shot at the title. BJ isnt going to vacate it even if he does fight GSP, so should they jst not get shots beause you dont feel the are interesting?

    I agree. While on paper no one else at 155 is in BJ's league, you have to credit a title shot to whomever earns it, because there is no way to see how they will fair up until they get in there with him.

    See A.Silva-Cote
     
  13. I didn't say that, just that I wouldn't care if they didn't put those fights together, and put GSP/BJ together first.

    I do think Alves vs. GSP is an interesting fight so I'd rather not miss out on it.

    I really dont care to see BJ vs GSP right now. I want to see a champ defend his belt against challengers in the division, and if he dominates all (see A.Silva if he gets the W against Okami) then MAYBE think about a move in weight.

    What I care about is two of the greatest fighters fighting each other.

    Integrity of the sport > wants and whims of a spoiled fighter.

    GSP has proved he is great.

    BJ is great, but hasn't proved it in a relevant way quite yet. He has to knock off at least one or two guys at LW.

    The thing is the people want to see bj vs GSP. No one is talking about bj vs sherk II (except maybe me), bj vs florian, or anything like that. They do what sells :dunno:

    Nobody was talking about it until BJ started talking about it.

    wtf are you talking about, everyone wanted to see a rematch right after their first fight. It was too close of a fight that neither fighter really dominated the other.
