I think he would get whichever he wanted, title shot or tune up it'd probably be up to him

BJ had to come back through GSP when he vacated the title

For both GSP and Cruz, even as big fans of them, I'd say give them at least one fight before the title shot.

HUGE GSP fan here. I believe if he comes back he should NOT get an immediate title shot, bc he chose to vacate the belt. I do believe he should have an immediate number one contender match though. Honestly, I hope he doesn't come back and retires on a win and being virtually undefeated by merit(he more than aavenged his only two losses). No need to prove anything further or risk his legacy.

He should have to win 1 or 2 fights first. I'd like to see him return at 155, I think it would make his life easier.
