    Sounds like Conor will be back sooner than later judging by his Instagram post. He wants the next in line and Dana White said GSP must fight a top LW contender before getting a title shot.

    The writing is on the wall folks. This fight is the one to make. It makes sense for many reasons.

    1. $$$: The gate and PPV will shatter records. UFC is a business first and foremost and this fight has more drawing power than any other bout in the UFC.

    2. Champ vs Champ 2.0. First time ever two 2 division champs have faced each other. That's amazing and might never happen again.

    3. Earning his way: Dana and fans are saying GSP needs to get a quality win at LW before earning a title shot. This fight gives him the opportunity to meet that standard.

    4. Legacy: Legacy matters for GSP and should he lose, he's lost to a former champion, not a scrub.

    This fight is likely being negotiated now. I can see the match being announced during the December 29th or Super Bowl weekend card. A 3-4 month hype would be nice. I say book the fight for March-April, Have Khabib/Tony Memorial day weekend and the winners connect in late 2019!!

    No, that fight sucks. No intrigue, really. GSP is going to lay on him for 25 minutes or until Conor gives up his back and taps.

    Because Conor has nothing for GSP, come on. GSP is a much better striker, grappler and BJJ practicioner than Khabib. And he's bigger.
    GSP is not a risk-taker, he's not going to stand with Conor. He's not going to risk anything, there will be no bad blood, GSP will fight calculated and safe and intelligent as he always does.
    I don't like the idea of GSP going to LW in the first place, he should fight at WW.

    I'm not even trying to shit on Conor here, but GSP is a nightmare match-up for him.

    So let's do it. Let GSP earn his way to a LW title shot (although he should be first in line anyways) Let Conor get another huge profile fight and pay day.

    And mainly let the SPORT grow. This fight will bring in fans who have never turned into UFC and help BUILD THE BRAND. There's so many reasons to make it happen.

    Who's to say Conor won't Serra GSP? He's got the power.

    GSP has mentioned on multiple occasions that a fight with Conor interests him. Feed the GOAT. Conor might surprise people and GSP could gas early.

    With this logic, a WW fought an LHW when GSP and Bisping fought.

    I don't think Conor fans want it for obvious reasons. He would be humiliated. GSP could stand and just strike with him and still knock him out easily.
