exactly. The UFC can't lose if they sign him.

UFC looking pretty smart not resigning Hendo. Although he appears to be a good guy, he looks like he is on the downside.

They'll sign him if for no other reason to stick it to strikeforce.

Absolutely yes...why wouldn't they try & sign an obvious top 5 threat in both WW & MW??

It should also be noted that Shields says his contract is up while Coker says they have the right to exercise one more fight.

One more fight is not that big a deal

Yes! GSP needs to be challenged on the ground and I dont wanna see rematches! unfortunately I read that the winner of kos/daley will coach the next tuf against him and then they will fight which I really really hope is not true!

I want to see Matt vs GSP. They would be great coaches on the show.

Man, don't get me wrong, I'm a big GSP fan...but I don't think I'd want to tune in to TUF every week to listen to him talk...his accent is pretty painful. Not so bad in small doses.
