All that I can assume is that GSP fervently denied the matchup with Anderson. So, looks like GSP will be matching up with Hendricks, barring a huge under the table check from Zuffa.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

It would be really terrible for Hendricks, just at a basic level I'd feel bad for him. That said, Condit isn't as stationary as Kampmann and will out-strike Hendricks if he pulls that overhand, overhand, overhand stuff he did in the Kos fight.
One of those fights where I'll be on the edge of my seat b/c I don't want either guy to lose.
I'll take a name bet for any length of time that Weidman will be new champ after this fight.
I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
It seems that most are initially confident when fighting or preparing to fight Anderson. Those feelings/emotions seem to change when the reality sets in and they see Silva standing on the opposite side of the octagon waiting for the ref to start the match; that or when Anderson defends/sloughs off his opponent's bread-and-butter.
Hopefully Weidman can keep it competitive, but I see Anderson finishing him, especially if Chris breaks mentally. Athletes seem to change when competing against Anderson, with the exception of Chael, that is. He still has his soul.
