    LOL wow terrible decision. The flaws in his striking game are gonna be made REALLY obvious in the MW division where his wrestling may not be as effective.

    I hope he decides to successfully defend his belt a few times or even once before doing this

    Well he might be able to beat Evan Tanner or whatever scrubs im sure theyre gonna put him up against but he'll get destroyed by Anderson. Henderson versus GSP would be a REALLY sick fight imo, they better make that happen.

    After watching the video it sounds like this wont happen for probably a year or so and thats only if he beats Fitch/Alves. It's pretty crazy how confident Huerta is about becoming champion though, he thinks hell have the LW title before the end of the year..

    Personally I think its a bad move. He should stay in the ww division for awhile and establish dominance the way that matt hughes did when he was the ww champion. Its not like hes a seasoned champ like anderson silva or lidell when he was the champion. If those guys decided to move up when they were on top it would have made sense.

    GSP just got his title back and hasnt successfully defended his title while champion. If he beats fitch he should defent the title 4 - 5 times more before deciding to move up. Establish some dominance and weed out all the challenges at ww which is a stacked division. Saying your the ww champion in the UFC means something.

    They have the deepest ww division out there and I think its one of the reasons hughes never moved up. There was always constant challenges. He definately has a list of people he needs to beat before he can move up. I can see him arguing that he has beat most of the people in the WW division while he wasnt the champion but dang.

    IMO hes trying to do to much to fast

    I think after he beats Fitch and Alves he'll be safe to move up. Theres alot of good WWs that could fight each other before they get a title shot anyways. Diego, Koscheck, Karo, Mike Swick, Mac Danzig, Marcus Davis, Hazelett, and probably others im forgetting. None of those guys really stand out as deserving a title shot. They all need at least 2 quality wins before they get their shot anyways.

    lol he'll be fighting bigger stronger guys and his wrestling MAY not be as effective, which will force him to stand with people. I just rewatched his last fight against serra and the 30 seconds the fight was on the feet Serra looked to have the better striking. Which is ridiculous considering how fatigued he was at that point and the fact that hes really a BJJ guy with short ass arms.

    serra fight cant be used for comparison, GSP said what happeend for the fight and it was that he underestimated serra and didnt really prepare for the fight. He also just got caught, it happens. His striking is better then most mw there. Have you guys forgot what the mw division looks like.

    Theres franklin, hendo and Silva and thats pretty much it. GSP will steam roll any one else there with out a problem.

    After GSP moves up, a welterweight tournament would be awesome.

    I was talkin about the Serra v GSP II

    And ya those 3 are his only real challenges but I think they would all wipe the floor with him. Anderson definitely would and Hendo probably would too. Man, Hendo vs. GSP would be a reallyyyyy freaking sick fight imo.

    But ya i wanna see a BJ vs. GSP Rematch.
