    OK so if you havnt watched ufc 171 ... **SPOILER ALERT**

    So Jonny Hendrix won decision.. I had Rd 1,2,5 for Jonny... But was very close..

    Thoughts on main event and next WW challenger to face Jonny?

    Did anyone see nick diaz heckling jonny on the scales at the weight ins? Anyone think he will get a title shot and deserves it?

    Talk is Diaz and Lawler might have a return bout, just for nostalgia. Also heard Hendricks might be a bit tired from being pretty active the past year.

    If its the old Diaz, I suspect Diaz might beat Hendricks. But you can't go doing all the stupid shit Diaz does outside the cage and not have that impact your performance.

    Diaz to beat Lawler, not sure if Diaz will beat Hendricks.

    you didn't know Diaz was a dope smoker. He wouldn't fight in some states due to not being given a medical marijuana exemption.

    Frank Shamrock has previously been done for Marijuana during his Pancrase days. Claims he used it to help him sleep the night before a fight.

    I thought either the Condit or GSP fight only went ahead when he got an exemption - I could be wrong.

    lol dude... you obviously dont understand what i mean...

    I said.. ''Diaz vs Lawler would be a dope fight''

    to put it a different way...

    Diaz vs Lawler would be a sick/good/great fight

    I know diaz smokes weed. your talking to a hardcore mma fan bro...
    Lawler doesnt.. The term DOPE can also be slang for GOOD in australia...

    I believe your not a AUSSIE gym junkie... so maby you misunderstood

    get it, got it, good

    [MENTION=3428]Davidson[/MENTION] Location: Outside Australia??

    Anywayss... I think woodly deserves next title shot..

    then rory vs lombard
    saphidean vs ellenburger
    eric silva vs brown

    Best performance gets next shot...

    And if diaz stops crying... i think he should have a top contender fight and be an impressive win before another title shot.

    Agree?

    Not sure if Diaz's antics are due to the Pot, just hyping up the fight or its in the blood. Probably all the above. His brother goes a bit stupid too at times.

    If its the old Diaz he tends to like them coming forward, makes his tap tap tap abit more "potent". That's why I think Diaz of old would beat Hendricks, not sure now though.

    Rory McDonald seems a bit more talented than Lombard. Lombard seems abit flat footed at times, might be due to his Judo history.

    Woody, been around awhile, seems to be an athlete and a half but just doesn't seem to be in that elite level that GSP, Hendricks, Condit and Diaz are.

    Looking forward to the next Lyotto Machida fight.

    Hendrix vs Diaz would be good

    If only GSP would finish fights he'd still be champ.

    Hopefully some cunt ups him and tells him his a pussy. Should motivate him to come back with a " nothing to lose " kinda approach. His comeback is him knocking a heap of cunts out then getting the title back. His got the talent and the physical ability to do it but I doubt he will....

    From a technical point of view GSP is a good fighter to watch. He's just doesn't put people to sleep or take limbs home with him. He did knock out Matt Hughes and Jay Heiron earlier in his career and had a ding dong stand up battle with BJ Penn at UFC 58, not to mention standing with Pro Kickboxers Hardy and Alves. His ground n pound is still great watch though.

    Now his comeback has been delayed due to an ACL I read.
