Yeah. I was watching the presser. Video/audio went dead though.

Really bummed because I was looking forward to both the gsp/Diaz fight and Penn/ Condit. GSP/Condit will still be good but I hope Penn gets a good opponent to keep that card nice and stacked

Let Penn fight Rick Story, Fitch again, or hell put Rory McDonald in there with him. Condit is going to be the new champ you heard it here first.

I think Penn-Fitch 2 makes the most sense for the division.

Even though I would want this fool Diaz to get released, I'd much rather see Penn bust him up. Book it!

Thats what I was about to say. I saw someone on a different board say that since Diaz is pulled from the title fight and Condit bumped up to it, have Diaz fight Penn. I like the original matchups more but I would be almost as thrilled for gsp/Condit and Diaz/Penn.

I like it.

Penn is never going to fight Rick Story. Not a big enough name. And Dana said Fitch vs Penn 2 is not happening. My guess would be Alves or Melendez. Just guesses. Oh, and GSP is going to dominate Condit.

I like that Melendez option. Good way to introduce him to the UFC.

Kos would have worked nicely vs Penn as well.

...if he wasn't stepping in to fight Hughes.

I rather see Kos fight Penn then Matt. What a wimp Nick turned out to be, scared to fight GSP and then came up with a sorry excuse on youtube. What a loser! How do you blow the biggest opportunity in your career? I guess he is happy fighting lower tier guys in Strikeforce. This proved UFC always had the better fighters cause non of their fighters would have never done that.

In Nick's defense, he has blown many smaller opportunities over the years.

We will see. All of you hoping for the GSP-Silva superfight can kiss that goodbye. Condit is going to ruin those hopes.
