    Title says it all. Maia has been killing everybody since the drop, and there isn't a clear cut contender behind Hendricks. Condit and Brown don't fight until after GSP and Ellenbergers hype went out the window. If Maia dominates Shields tonight, do you think he should be next in line?

    If it's a dominant performance yes if not DHK vs Erick Silva winner could be GSP's next challenge. :icon_chee If Erick beats DHK he doesn't want the shot only DHK if he wins.

    I think so, especially if it's an impressive victory

    no other ww will have as compelling a case for a title shot imo
     
  8. If it is impressive, I think so.

    Maia would probably get jabbed to death against GSP but I'd love to see a ground battle. He wouldn't be Diaz on the ground, that's for sure.

    absolutely, as a GSP fan he poses the most interesting challenge for GSP in my opinion

    (this is, of course, assuming that GSP beats Hendricks, if he doesn't, GSP get's a rematch and Maia can take an easy filler fight to face the winner)

    It depends on whether GSP wins or loses to Hendricks. If GSP loses he will be offered an immediate rematch with Hendricks, no matter in what fashion he loses to Hendricks the first time. That's just the business reality of it.


    But if GSP defeats Hendricks then I could see Maia getting the next title shot, or fighting the winner of Condit/Brown for a title eliminator match.

    I said I think he should get the shot with a win, especially if it's impressive. In other words in my opinion he should get the shot with any win, if he wins impressively I don't think it's really up for debate that he deserves the next shot.

    GSP was looking pretty impressive until he got poked in the eye.

    if Maia wins convincingly - yes.

    in the meantime, DHK - Silva winner vs Condit - Brown winner for next shot.
