If I was yoel / Jacare I wouldn't give a poo poo. If GSP wins I get to fight a welterweight for stupid cash. If Bisping wins I still get to fight Bisping whose stock has sky-rocketed.

I'd be wanting to get a title shot ASAP because MMA is very much "What have you done for me lately", they don't get paid not to fight, and there's not guarantee that the UFC won't come up with another gimmick fight for whoever the champ is later.

Isn't that what he's saying? Absent of any miracle that would let either one of them will themselves into the title fight that GSP just got ASAP means "after GSP". He's just saying that GSP skipping the line isn't the worst thing that could happen to either of them. At this point anyway.......which I guess is what you're saying.

No he's saying that they should be pissed because who knows what will happen in the division next. GSP could win and retire, and Bisping could be out with an eye injury, and then the vacant title will go to the winner of Kurt Angle and two bonobos standing on each other's shoulders in a trenchcoat, because that would get more buys.

Pretty much. They have a big loan to payback and brazillian champions aren't going to bring in the PPVs.

Kurt Angle clearly has experience on his side and is the better man on the ground, but if the bonobos can keep the fight standing then it is truly anyone's game

¡Hola SEA!

The weirdest thing to me is, if GSP wasn't lying and he really walks around under 190, is he planning to bulk up a bunch to cut to 185? If so, he's probably putting 170 out of reach for the foreseeable future, meaning he's signing up to be undersized in perpetuity. Seems like fucken strange decisionmaking

Georges is going to beat him. Dan Henderson beat him and Dan Henderson is an old man with no back. Georges is a younger man with a good back.

By looking far out into the 209 we are also looking far back into time, back toward the horizon of the universe, back toward the epoch of the Stockton Slap.
