    Yeah , he was the ufc poster boy for quite a while , made in on Entourage
    with Drama and the gang ...

    Maybe they should make BJ fight Fitch (sure... that could happen :eek:so:)
    or Alvez or somebody , but since it's a trans-divisional thing , I like them just doing it and getting it over with.
    We know BJ can handle , and maybe beat GSP , and people want to see it , and it will make a mountain of cash, so it's not hard to see why it's going down. It would be screwey if BJ lost but stayed at ww , beat Fitch, then lost to Koscheck ,and they still wanted to give him big fights . It would be like with Chuck .
    Hmm... (no, I don't have a point )

    Logic or merit isn't always at the top of the list in them setting up fights
    so I'll settle for competitive and entertaining . Like Ortiz/Machida : mostly competitive and mostly not entertaining . (still no point )

    I don't have a problem with BJ vs GSP,nor do I have a problem with Chuck getting the loser of Evans/Griffin. It just seems to me if you have a problem with one you should the other.

    I'm not actually retarded and you're probably not really a dickhead ,
    but who cares one way or the other?...

    Like I said, I like the idea of just getting GSP/BJ 2 over with , without a lot
    of mucking around . It will be a good fight .

    obviously there's no way of saying for sure, but he was destroying hughes in that fight. i understand there was three rounds left and anything can happen, but if penn didn't fuck up his rib, i would bet the farm that he would have finished hughes in the next round. what could hughes have done? knocked him out? submit him? nope. that fight probably proved to hughes that prayers are answered, cause he was on his to being executed.

    when randy got his title shot, there was really no contender at the time. vera was the #1, but he was in contract limbo so there was no fight for the champ. the rumor of gonzaga taking on tim came out and everyone went ape shit over how that was a bullshit fight, so they signed randy to come back and fight tim. cro cop would have been a good choice, but he was already booked to fight sanchez a month before.

    bj's done plenty to earn his shot. he completely dismantled sherk and stevenson and he's really the only guy to ever look competitive against GSP with the exception of the first serra fight. also, its a guy who's the clear #1 in his division taking on a guy who's the clear #1 in his division. fights like that make sense. if GSP beats BJ and Alves are you gonna say he hasn't done anything to deserve a fight against Anderson Silva? i certainly hope not.

    BJ's gas tank was empty regardless.
    Hughes would've won the last 3 rounds imo anyway.

    Yes, I was right even then. Conor vs Khabib, DC vs Brock, Woodley vs Till, Diaz vs Dustin all should not happen if they were to go by 100% contentions and rankings, but fuck it. I'd rather watch these fights then what they should be.
