I have not been a fan of GSP, although I admired his skillset and how he managed to stay on top. He is very smart to get out now, while he is on top and in relatively good condition.
As far as whether Lawler, Hendricks or Condit get the shot or even another to be named, it will be a money deal and interesting. Interesting because whichever one gats the belt now will not be the one with the belt a year from now. It is going to rotate between the top guys because there is not a truly dominate fighter in the class, that cann dominate and hold on like GSP did.
