Look, GSP is reigning right now...it's unlikely Matt will get a 4th shot at him, so unless GSP is taken out (which I don't think is likely to happen probably till late next year) what else is Matt going to do?
Make entertaining fights.
This fight has a backstory that is far more compelling than Matt vs. Swick, or Fitch, or Kampmann, or Condit...Matt has a score to even...I wanna see it happen. After that happens God knows when, the door may be open for a title shot again.
