    GSP wants the Conor/Khabib winner? Let him fight for the chance. Have him fight Tony Ferguson at 155 for the chance to get the next shot at the champ. UFC would likely give GSP the shot anyway, whether he takes another fight or not, but they could really use a GSP main event for this winter schedule and maybe GSP won't call their bluff.

    Prove that you can make lightweight and announce yourself as a contender by beating the former interim champ. Could end up being a perfect main event for either 230 in NYC or 231 in Toronto. Maybe GSP figures it's worth it if it guarantees a shot at the 229 winner. Tony is cleared and ready and claims to have fight news coming soon. Who wins?

    GSP ain't fighting unless its for a belt.

    He's made that painfully clear. He wants to fight the Conor vs Khabib winner for the LW belt, win it and then drop it.

    I disagree on the UFC giving him a title shot anyway. They had a deal, and GSP reneged on it. Dana is one of the most spiteful men in the world & as far as he is concerned Georges owes them one. He gave his word he would defend the 185 belt & not vacate the it if he won. Now MW has no drawing power because Whittaker didnt get "the rub".

    GSP vs Ferguson for 231 in Toronto makes the most sense. GSP needs to prove he can make 155 first off. The Khabib/Conor & Poirier/Nate winners fight this March, the GSP/Ferguson winner gets next after that, or fills in if someone is hurt.

    Gsp is only fighting if conor beats khabib i think he may fight conor later on if he loses but gsp is not gonna fight khabib. He wants mcgregor money and another belt but he doesnt want to lose to khabib and for some reason he thinks conor is an easy fight for himself but conor would knock him out also

    It would be a cool fight to see, but no way it happens. GSP is past the point of contender fights, especially with not well-known, very dangerous opponents.

    Would be interesting to see. Maybe GSP would take it if it guarantees him a LW title fight.

    So you want GSP, all time P4P contender and UFC cash cow, to fight a top contender fight?

    Fuckin'ell.

    GSP has wanted only Conor or Mayweather since a week after he vacated MW

    Always lots of talk and speculation when it comes to him. But actual fights? Not s much since Hendricks

    great matchup...and it makes sense *from a merit standpoint*...but I agree with those saying there is no way GSP takes on a 'contender' fight.

    at this point in his career, and given his legacy and status in the sport, GSP will expect a title shot or 'money fight' immediately.

    remember, GSP is one of a small number of legit PPV stars left on the roster...he gets what he wants.

    Too dangerous for GSP. He wont fight a washed up Anderson and you think he's gonna fight a monster like Tony?
