Ellenberger - very good wrestler with huge KO power. I think he would be a massive test for GSP because of the way he blitzes fighters and lands huge power punches.
Maia - another world class grappler with arguably the best BJJ in MMA. The fight might turn out like GSP/Shields were GSP avoided the ground until the last few seconds of the round but if the Fitch fight is anything to go on then it could be very interesting.
MacDonald - Rory gets better and better every time we see him. Hard to say how well he will do against GSP because he's improving so much so quickly. Potentially the man to beat GSP imo.
Lawler - Huge power but struggles with good grapplers/wrestlers.
Hendricks is going to be the guy. I bet he outwrestles gsp and connects with at least a few of those left hammers.
