    Would be a pretty amazing fight stylistically. GSP's usada testing window is done in 4 months.
    How many PPV buys does this New Years card get?
    Woodley vs GSP
    Amanda Nunez vs someone
    Wonderboy vs Maia
    Lawler vs Nick Diaz
    Cody Garbrandt vs Brian Caraway

    all of those fights look interesting

    I would really like to see Diaz-Lawler 2

    I hope both Maia and Thompson get title shots
    based on performance I think Steven Thompson is the most deserving to fight for the title

    look forward to seeing GSP in the mix
    and would like to see him against Woodley also

    Stfu. Wonderbread has 2 WW fights. Maia IS the WW division once he schools Condit. UFC seniority and general badassery is in play and Maia takes the prize.

    Maia has to get through Condit first.

    Wonderboy better keep that shit standing or he'll get shut out on the scorecards. But yeah, I'd like to see it.

    Maia needs his title shot soon, he's not getting younger. Doubt he'll get it though.

    Nice card except for the Amanda fight. WMMA...

    Maia and Wonderboy have both earned a shot already IMO, IF Demian beats Carlos, then he should definitely be next in line after Stephen Thompson. This WW division is a mess at the moment. So many top contenders.

    If Robbie beats his next opponent doesn't he deserve a shot as well. Plus GSP coming back just throws a massive spanner in the works of an already messy division.

    Wonderboy just needs to take a stand. He needs wait and make his next bout a title fight.

    Yeah it could be. I think that is what makes that fight so interesting. It could be one-sided for either fighter with a dominant Wonderboy KO or Maia with the submission.

    What's the point? Woodley won't fight either of them.

    Why waste this scenario on a title eliminator? I want to see this happen for the title.

    Wonderboy should troll Woodley to death and hope it will spark an increased interest in this fight. Since GSP entered USADA testing pool we already know that GSP vs Woodley cant happen at MSG.

    So they could be tempted to make these fights for MSG :

    DC vs Rumble II
    Woodley vs Wonderboy

    We'll see.

    Why saddle Wonderboy with a blanket. I might be in the minority here but I can't stand Maia from a watching on tv standpoint. I appreciate his basically unrivaled ground game (save Jacare n Khabib) but unlike Jacare and Khabib home is boring as fuck to watch. Wonderboy is one of the best mma strikers there's is I woyld rather see a stand up war with like Ceronne than watch Maia try to dry fuck him for 3 to 5 rounds.
