    This is true, still don't really want to see it, because 1- it'll be boring a hell, 2 - if GSP wins, he fucks over another division because he won't fuckn defend the fuckn belt!! I kind of wish GSP wouldv've just stayed retired until Bisping "defended" the 185 belt against the rightful #1 contender.

    Just read that it is official, as the main event at UFC 220. It definitely has a chance to be hyped up to be a great fight! Hard to bet against Stipe, but man, Ngannou is a beast & has a lot of momentum behind him, with some brutal finishes to back that momentum up. Stipe will have to be on, but he isn't the champ for no reason! WIll definitely be looking forward to this HW title fight.

    With news of GSP not willing to defend the belt, this is basically for the REAL title.

    Whittaker/Rockhold should be really strong, and should happen for the title.

    Just in passing, has anyone heard anything about Jacare Souza recently? I've been out of things, haven't been following MMA with my former gusto, but it seems like he's MIA, since the loss to Whittaker.

    Then I'm looking at the UFC rankings, and I'm wondering how is the ex-champion Michael Bisping dropped to #7 in the rankings, before I remember he got back in the cage like twenty minutes after losing to GSP, and got knocked the f#$% out...

    So we're just gonna make up GSP is actively refusing to defend the title instead of the already confirmed Colitis issues? Smooth

    I'm with you on that, GSP is a better version of Rory(assuming he's still the same guy), and Rory made beating Woodley look fairly easy.

    Have you not read the articles from yesterday though, he says he won't fight at 185 again......colitis or not, that's refusing to defend.

    Great fight, just a shame they are rushing it through because of a lack of headliners for that card. This is a fight that could have done with a really big push on PPV promotion, or even a free big Fox event.

    Did you not read it? It says the colitis had a huge impact on him gaining the weight to get to 185lbs, and it's already been confirmed he does indeed have that. Sure that's refusing to defend, but because of fucking medical reasons. I know it's the "cool" thing to hate on GSP, but let's not make shit up.
