as long as that fight is on the undercards it will be good i guess.
Hendricks deserves a title shot imo, but the UFC needs to build him up, his last 2 fights have ended in seconds and the casual fan wont recognize him. they should have Hendricks fight diaz ideally. but it may be better to have hendricks fight the winner of BJ rory. you dont want diaz to fight anyone he wont easily beat because a GSP/Diaz fight has big time $$ involved.
You must have shown up late for the Calgary card. The Kongo fight was brutal, as was the Boetsch/Lombard fight. Not saying the Faber fight was good, but nowhere near as pathetic as those 2.
Something tells me that GSP will push for Diaz next but with him losing his last fight and coming off a year suspension (not to mention he "retired" acting like a baby after his loss), Dana will give Hendricks his shot.
Crystal Ball Time
GSP vs Hendricks (GSP UD)
Diaz vs Koscheck (Diaz UD--warm up fight for Nick)
Kampmann vs Rory (Rory TKO via ground & pound)
Ellenberger vs Condit (Condit TKO)
Fitch vs Maia (UFC 156) (Fitch UD)
E.Silva vs Heiron (UFC 156) (E. Silva TKO)
After these are done:
GSP vs Diaz (Money fight for UFC + the fight GSP wants)
Rory vs E. Silva (Next wave of fighters)
Fitch vs Condit (Winner gets title shot?)
Hendricks vs Ellenberger (Ellenberger is begging for this)
....I predict about 10% of these predictions come true...
