Don't think anyone is arguing that he deserves it more then Hendricks, but if GSP fights Silva and the UFC wants Hendricks to stay busy, a fight with Diaz makes the most sense.
Actually if Rory beats BJ then he makes the most sense. I'm sure the UFC brass would love to see GSP's buddy beat the #1 contender, then they'd have a Canadian style Rashad-Bones brodown situation.
