How do you figure that btw? Looking at ppv sales, I think it's hard to argue that GSP is anything but the 2nd biggest draw in the UFC.
I like the idea of Shields getting a title shot before Fitch, it actually shows that the UFC matchmakers value accomplishments outside of the UFC just as highly as those inside. I think over the past few years, Shields has a much more impressive resume then Fitch. I also think Shields has a better chance of beating GSP.
