    Per Firas GSP is considering retiring after this fight.

    Assuming this is true (and GSP wins) who do you think should fight for the title?

    I would think a Condit/Rory rematch would be amazing, assuming they both win.

    If that's true then it's gonna be some combination of

    Hendricks
    Condit
    Brown
    MacDonald
    Lawler

    This is about him possibly retiring.

    Although ... apparently it was taken out of context from an article I just found.

    Rory vs Condit will determine it.

    I don't think he retires either. I'd like for him to take the LW belt before he retires too. Shields would even be in the mix perhaps with GSP gone, although I would never want him to be champ.

    I assume they'd hold a tournament with the top 4 guys in the division

    Winner of Condit/Brown
    Winner of Lawler/Rory
    Hendricks (not sure though cuz he'd be coming off a title shot anyways)
    Shields??

    Or they'd just set up the winners of the first two fights

    GSP dropping down to LW? I don't think so and GSP has stated that he has a tough enough time as it is dropping to 170.

    Condit v Brown winner versus Rory v Lawler winner. This would probably be Condit v Rory.

    If GSP beats Hendricks and retires, it should be Condit/Brown winner vs MacDonald/Lawler winner.

    If GSP loses (poster curse is upon him, after all), it should be Hendricks vs MacDonald/Lawler winner.

    Ummm .... no. He has an easy WW cut, and is 15 pounds lighter than some of his opponents.

    You do realize there are LW fighters that are within 5 lbs of his weight, and WW fighters 15lbs heavier (both on fight night).

    I'm for a WW tournament with the top 20 or so. The winner would have fought his way through the toughest division and would be considered a worthy successor to GSP.
