    They train together so it's not likely

    Robbie Lawler comes to mind as a close second to Alvez. Guarantee that fight doesn't go the distance lol.

    Not Kampmann! He needs to fight somebody that doesnt have dynamite in his hands.

    I think Condit beats him in a very non-competitive fight.

    I don't think they would want to make that fight and run the risk of lowering Kampmann's stock any more. He's a fan favourite but he's already lost two in a row and giving him a third loss in a row would make it pretty hard to sell him against another big name opponent. I think they're more likely to put Lombard up against someone like Stungun, Maia, or Brown.

Since the two guys who had yet to face GSP that had great chances of getting next dibs were Maia and Kampmann(had he beaten Condit), ended up getting knocked out of contention for the time being, ZUFFA is going to have to get creative.

    If Lombard gets one more win against somebody in the top fifteen, I think he's got a chance at being given a shot…. I view this matchmaking quite similar to what Lawler's position with a win(albeit a longshot) over Rory would be. I think ZUFFA would take a hard look at hotshotting one of these guys right into a title fight.

    Personally, I don't see GSP fighting too much longer. After he beats Hendricks, I think there's basically Rory(in what could very well be billed as GSP's retirement bout for extra buys), a possible rematch with Condit(which I don't think draws), Matt Brown or Lawler(who I don't see getting past their next opponents in the slightest) and MAYBE Stungun with another win, but he's not the most bankable draw unless they do GSP/Stungun in Korea.

    Since it looks like Askren will have to sit out a good chunk of the next year and will probably have to take a fight before getting an immediate shot, the guy to get the next shot could be somebody from left field, depending on if a few upsets occur.

    I'd like to see Lombard/Kampmann. I don't think it would end well for Martin because of his tendency to get into brawls in the first round. Even if he changed his gameplay to where he'd utilize takedowns, it'd still be hard with Lombard's judo background. And that would potentially help him get into the top ten, which could help him get a fight with Condit after Kampmann (especially if Matt Brown pulls off the victory).

    But I think Condit beats him via decision by keeping him on the outside and frustrating him like Nick Diaz. A five inch reach advantage in that fight lends itself to Condit's advantage.

    As for other fights, how about Ben Askren if he comes over from Bellator? That'd be an awfully interesting fight to me. If not, then Ellenberger, Lawler (if Rory Mac beats him) or Koscheck may be good fights as well.
