    You would have to stop his takedowns to be a challenge to GSP. So would take Askren or Hendricks to develop the rest of their game. I don't think he likes to be hit and is now hurt standing, so hitting him on top is best.

    I'm afraid that Kampmann and Condit are guaranteed 5 round fights with lots of lay a pray time in a 50-45 decision. I'd rather not see them and I don't see how he gets up for anyone at 170 after winning this so easily.

    I think GSP-Franklin; Franklin won't get another shot against Silva, so its either this or focus on a title shot at 205.

    GSP is still a skilled striker so if he was unable to takedown askren or hendricks he would just outstrike them. By the time either of those developed quality striking gsp would be near retirement.

    I think he would tko conditt gnp in the third or 4th ground and i think he would annihilate kampman in the first 2 maybe 3 rounds. I dont see kampman posing any threat whatsoever. He has no power in his hands so gsp would not be afraid to keep it standing, he would get put on his back easily and while he has pretty good subs they are not good enough and he would get beat up on the ground.

    Franklin might be too big for gsp.

    Franklin might be too big, but doesn't make sense to just give him any MW. I think Anderson - Irvin didn't make any sense.

    Believe me, I'm not saying either of those two can win. But I am saying it takes a sick wrestler like them to even have a chance.

    Hendricks has awesome takedowns, so he could actually end up on top. But is light years behind in everything else. If he can beat Amir, then he comes on people's radar. Should have been a 3x champ certainly.

    Yea hendricks is a stud and i think has a better chance of succeeding than askren. I have heard some mixed results on his ability to pick up other aspects of mma. I cant see him ever becoming a smooth striker but he could become a dominant gnp top control guy in the mold of hughes although i dotn know if he will have the submission skills.

    even better than Hughes (of course) especially when he shoots. he needs some standup to get the success that GSP has at takedowns.

    I always hated Hendricks but I cheer for him now. (KC is good friends with Letters and I went out with Letters in Denver his freshman year (KC was unable to convince me how good letters was until I saw him in the finals the next year)
