Just saw this. To answer your #2 question, it is because the sport is rigged. Think about it. He lightly taps GSP and GSP lets go yet continues to fight. This was a "I am in a little pain here, let go so I don't tap out early" tap.

Clearly a rigged fight.

this is a potato post. look at GSP's face after the fight. that s**t ain't rigged.

Rigged doesn't mean that the participants don't get beat up.

But GSP could have ended it right there but for some reason just decided to get up off the guy.

all the sports are rigged. it's not a coincidence that ray lewis wins a superbowl in his last season, on a goal line stand.......
GSP is also now rumored getting sued by a former manager........

in more important GSP news......

Joe Rogan also thinks GSP should retire. apparently GSP has temporary memory loss, he told joe rogan that he thinks he was abducted by aliens because he'd be somewhere then suddenly be at home. (not sure if it was sarcasm) but if the memory loss is true, i agree on retirement.


in the meantime, the date for a GSP/Hendricks rematch should be finalized in two weeks...... a reporter in the post-fight presser thought that UFC 171 (in Johny's hometown of Dallas) would be the perfect venue for a rematch, Dana did not disagree.... just saying.

If it really is memory loss, and I certainly hope not, then I would agree to retirement. GSP has accomplished a lot in the UFC and dominated the division. Unfortunately for him, the welterweight division is even MORE stacked now, with fighters that are stronger and more explosive than before. He's taken a beating in three straight fights. I hope his brain is ok.

Jeff is right...potato post.

He lets go of the choke before Johny's hand touched or tapped on him...he lets go as soon as he feels Johny's arm come under the leg, which JH does to put himself in a position to try and push GSP off and escape the choke. GSP senses this and lets go of the choke in hopes of maintaining top position, as opposed to holding onto that guillotine because his body was not positioned to obtain good leverage to effectively sink that choke in deep.

No kidding.

UFC.com's current top 10 welterweights:

Champ: Georges St. Pierre
1. Johny Hendricks
(or however you wanna put those two)
2. Carlos Condit
3. Robbie Lawler (up 7 spots from 10th)
4. Rory McDonald
5. Jake Ellenberger
6. Demian Maia
7. Jake Shields
8. Matt Brown
9. Martin Kampman
10. Nick Diaz

not to mention Tyron Woodley's performance should get him in the discussion very soon.................. esp. if Diaz stays "retired"


and yeah..... before they finalize anything with that rematch, they need to seriously look into GSP's health first. for his sake, also or else the UFC will find themselves in the same position as the NFL.

If gsp does retire, Lawler v hendricks would be an awesome fight to determine champion

i'd like a little 4 man tourney. matt brown and carlos condit are already fighting on the 14th.

I would like that idea also. A tourney could bring diaz out of retirement also...

Tournament is the right idea. Though Diaz is coming off a loss thus is not exactly deserving of being awarded a spot in a 4 man tourney.

I'd say Hendricks and Lawler have punched their tickets, and the winner of Condit/Brown would be deserving of the 3rd spot. As for the 4th...looking at the top fighters who have strung together at least 2 wins in a row I think it comes down to Saffiedine and DHK with Tarec slightly ahead IMO as he was the last Strikeforce WW champ. If he wins on January 4th I'd put him in.

Hendricks vs Saffiedine/DHK
Lawler vs Condit/Brown

IMHO it means the finals are Hendricks vs Condit/Lawler so either way a great scrap. Oh and can we get this done Pride tourney style with the 3 fights happening on the same night

how a hypothetical four man bracket lays out based on current UFC rankings:

1. Hendricks
4. McDonald

2. Condit
3. Lawler




8 man bracket:

1. Hendricks
8. Brown

3. Lawler
6. Maia

4. McDonald
5. Ellenberger

2. Condit
7. Shields

excellent explanation. with Hendricks in position to reverse GSP over into his guard, there is no point in GSP even holding on and wasting energy.

awesome. let's not forget the potential rise of Hector Lombard. Dong Hyun Kim, although not as exciting, is still a contender at 170, too.
who watched TUF last night? another f**ker didnt make weight and was kicked off, ironically it was the same dude who got a bye to the semi's because his opponent couldnt make weight. english dude got a bye through the semi's to the finale.
