    I didn't even realize this when I first read that Hendricks was fighting Matt Brown, but who the hell is Robbie fighting now? I was looking at the UFC's rankings and the entire top 7 have fights, and Condit is still out.

    Thoughts?

    PS, I'm glad. Didn't want to see a third fight so soon, and I hope Rory gets his shot.

    Probably hector Rory winner. But they don't fight until April so who knows. Maybe he wanted a long break like all fighters want after they win the title. There isn't anyone else worthy right now.

    Anderson gets a shot at Weidman if he beats Diaz but could Diaz be granted to a titleshot also with a win? If that's a case, I wonder does UFC rather want Diaz-Weidman or Diaz-Lawler II...

    I forgot about Diaz. The UFC would put that fight on for sure if he can beat Silva.

    My guess is Diaz. People were calling for a rematch with him long before Lawler got a title shot. They only thing is Diaz will most likely be recovering from injuries for the next 6 months if Anderson isn't shot.

    Hendricks should get the ts, but now they send him against Brown. That sucks!!! Lawler barely won that fight, the trilogy is a must.

    I thought it was Hendricks because they promised that fight, but the UFC is known to break promises so it could be Rory if he beats Lombard or Diaz if he beats Silva. Longshots would be Lombard or Brown if they win their next fights.

    I hope it's not Rory Lombard finally needs to get a chance against a top guy at WW

    Calling it now, Jorge Saint Pier this late spring/early summer. UFC must know something or they wouldn't do Lombard-Rory and Hendricks-Brown. That would sideline Robbie too long and those other guys would be on a quicker turnaround.
