Default Who's the Next # 1 Contender for the WW title?

Jon Fitch (I don't see Dana wanting to promote this guy for a title so soon (especially after the video gaming rights thing))

Matt H., If GSP wins, I don't know if the UFC would want a fourth match between them and Alves beat Matt recently as well.

I really can't think of anyone else?

Hughes isn't gonna fight GSP again no matter how dominant he is against Serra. Maybe you will see one more super fight between Matt Hughes and Penn, but not against GSP.

If GSP gets by Alves, which he should his next fight will most likely be against Anderson Silva in a Super Fight. I hope it is at a catch weight of 180. Make Silva cut an extra five pounds will make it an even more competitive fight.

I guess you would have to look at some names, Mike Swick, Paulo Thiago, Martin Kampman. The division sort of fizzled a little bit with guys dropping to 155.

In an interview with mma funhouse, Matt said he wants a shot at the winner of Alvez vs GSP if he beats Sarah. Matt didn't like the way his last fights against GSP went and he said he had his knee blown out in the Alvez fight. But I'd also like to see Matt beat the snot out of Karo. I would post the link to the interview but my iPhone can't do it.

Yeah it depends on who wins with GSP Alves, since we've watched GSP destroy a lot of the top WW already.

Alves vs Fitch or Kos would me more marketable than GSP vs Kos 2, Fitch 2, Hughes 4, etc.

I presume Matt Hughes is the next contender. Or will be after we say ta ta to Matt Serra later this month.

I think its too early to call, the Alves fight still has to happen.

If Alves wins I could see them giving GSP an immediate title shot,
but if GSP wins a lot could happen between now and the time he needs to defend again.

I think if GSP lost, then they would make him fight Hughes....

I think if GSP wins, they will make Hughes fight Alves...but I still think that after that Hughes will be contender

Dont you
