    So Rory was promised next dibs on the title shot, whoever won.
    Lawler wins, and the UFC soon after says no Rory, you're not fighting. The delay in announcing that Hendricks would be made me think they were waiting to see if Diaz beats Anderson.. but then Hendricks was announced.

    Now, Hendricks has been withdrawn to fight Brown. Given the teeny tiny chance Nick has of beating Anderson.. could this be a sign that GSP will be coming back? Afterall, Uncle Dana had already said GSP would get a crack at the title as soon as he came back, since he never "lost" it.

    There was no delay to see if Diaz beats Anderson. Lol.

    Dana has said he thinks GSP will come back this year. Lawler wanted a rest and Hendricks wanted to fight. Thats all there is to the trilogy being nixed. Lawker vs GSP? Possibly.

    Lawler wants to come back in the summer and Hendricks didn't want to wait.

    I agree that Hendricks will be the betting favourite but I'd hardly call Brown a gimmie fight. Dude's tough as nails and could well take Hendricks out of the title picture, especially if Hendricks has another bad weight cut and nerfs himself again.

    Why do you have to simplify things so much and ruin lovely conspiracy theories?! :p

    Why can't people read relevant articles before posting theories?

    If he wins against Brown, I believe the fight will be on as planned.

    Theories are fun! Remember fun?!

    I guess I missed the relevant article where GSP confirmed he's definitely not coming back this year, contrary to what DFW said. My apologies, I guess?

    I think the Ufc saw how overwhelmingly people didnt want the trilogy and made the chage.
