    After Dana told UFC Tonight that GSP might come back in 2015, who would you match him up against?

    Title shot or non-title fight?

    For me, it would have to be a title shot, for sure, as he never really lost the belt (controversy aside). That being said, I would like to see him fight Hendricks again. Then, I would be down for GSP, like Anderson, doing only exhibition fights. Even though I'm a fan of St-Pierre, I don't think I would like him to rule WW again (let's be honest, he definitely would). Well, if that's still a possibility, I would like to see him against Silva himself, why not?


    What about you guys?

    I want GSP to stay retired.

    Having said that, the only fight I would want him to take if he were up for it would be against Anderson Silva.

    Rory as long as Rory is the champ

    Really though I would love to see GSP come back.

    GSP vs Hendricks 2, Condit 2, or Rory would be good.

    I think GSP would dominate Lawler with his wrasslin and people would complain about lay and pray

    yes. the fight now makes sense for GSP: less pressure and Anderson is shown to be mortal. lower risk for GSP (who in his defense is a midsized WW), high rewards for all parties.

    or automatic title shot vs WW champion

    There are no warm up fights in that division in top 5 so I think a title shot is ok. GSP left undisputed. He deserves it.

    No dicking around with non-title fights, he retired as champion.

    I also want him to remain retired from MMA and go on to other big things.

    He definitely should get the title shot when he returns, but fights with Johny, Lombard and Rory are all very intriguing. And of course Anderson Silva, but we all know that fight will never happen

    Lombard. I think GSP would embarrass him when nobody else will.

    Wow, don't know how I never thought about that. Lombard is a GREAT matchup for him.

    Good pick.

    Obviously Silva, though that seems doubtful somehow.

    A title fight against Lawler or Rory (because fuck Rory) would be cool too.

    He's already a rich legend, don't want to see him come back. His head has taken enough trauma.
