I'm kinda neutral on my feelings for this one.
On one hand, this is an insult to Hendricks, who has RIGHTFULLY earned a title shot. Diaz is coming off a loss and a suspension.
However, it's not like the UFC is booking this matchup for their own benefit. It's GSP himself asking for the fight and unlike Silva, GSP never really finds BS reasons to avoid a matchup. He respects every challenger presented to him. I wish he would have been indifferent to the smack Diaz talked, but clearly it has gotten under his skin and he wants that fight badly.
Anyone think Nick Diaz will pull a Nick Diaz and screw himself out of a title match again?
