people say gsp deserves his shot against serra but hughes never got his rematch vs gsp so imo hughes is next in line. gsp vs fitch would be sweet and people say it takes 2 fights to get back to title shot that would be number 2 for gsp. shelve serra hughes til ready and have gsp fitch in march. then mid summer they can have title shot for the winners

GSP vs Fitch is the only realy good match that can happen in the interim. B/C Hughes cant fight till his title shot.


huh? how does that work??? This would be Hughes title shot, same as BJ's title shot is now for an Interim belt Hughes could be as well

GSP will surely be training and pretty fit as it is, 5 weeks is plenty enough time imo, and he should be so confident of beating Hughes again i really think he would take it IF the ufc try and make it

COME ON DANA MAKE GSP VS HUGHES 3 HAPPEN AT UFC 79


i didnt mean for the interm title i meant in this long wake. the only good match up for GSP

We absolutely need an interim title match. We need to get the friggin ball rolling in this division. Hughes vs GSP!

Also, another thing is that UFC 79 needs a good match to replace this... what would it be if it's not GSPv.Hughes ?

Why is everyone talking about an interim title? This fight would've happened long ago but the UFC wanted to hype it by having them coach against each other.

So the majority of the delay is not Serra's fault, IMO

No but with a back injury you never know how long you will be out. This means the UFC will have a lot of work to do, I wonder if they'll make a new promo(hopefully) and a new countdown lol.

This sucks, Dana should just put Hughes back up with Serra for 81. Sure it sucks, but it's not a big deal.

Screw this. I know he didnt do it on purpose but this is jsut a way for him to keep the title longer without fighting. First guy to fight him will kick his ass

Oh god Serra gets hurt and its the UFC or Dana's Fault.The reason we had to wait soo long was because their on TUF.Does it suck the fights not happening yeah it does.But to say the UFC asked for this and that stuff is complete crap.No one asks for anyone to be hurt and not able to perform.I suggest to those of you who like to hate on Dana the Fertittas and the UFC to go find another hobby to watch... like stamp collecting or something.Im sure they can fill in the "already stacked" card with another awesome fight.After bustin Dana's and the UFC balls for years hey...we finally get Silva Liddell which is a main event its self.

Rumor is Tito will now be fighting on this card. Take it for whats it's worth, but it's coming from someone with direct contact to the UFC.

That would be great news.....I know he wanted to take a little more time off...but if he feels he ready that would be awesome....who would he fight......Jardine??? ......I know the fight the UFC wants is Shogun vs Tito but that wouldent be till Feb or March.

Man, that would suck. We go from a middleweight war sure to have some vicious GnP in it to a snoozefest of a fence clinch and sprawl war if Tito steps in. Honestly, who could you have Tito fight that would make for as interesting of a matchup?

The UFC deserves this........they make the entire MMA world wait 9 months for a title defense and then Serra gets hurt during this insane amount of time!

So basically the remaining TUF shows mean squat.....

What a joke!

As a sufferer of a herniated disc myself I can tell you it is crippling. Hell he may never fight again without surgery.

But I am terribly dissappointed this fight didn't happen. Hughes wanted one last hurrah and didn't get a chance at it.

I find it amusing to read posts by GSP's fans. It's called karma baby! How many times has GSP been injured and pushed back fights? So now, GSP is going to have to wait longer for a title shot. Don't get me wrong, I want to see GSP fight ASAP too, as he is one of the most exciting.

ufc might deserve this but we dont and gsp doesnt either, this is one big headache for dana and ufc...

if in some off chance serra can fight and he loses many will blame his injury for that.

they wont let hughes and gsp fight unless one of them all ready has the belt. i would bet all my money on that.

Fitch, cant take the fight. Karo, broken hand, Kos, just got destroyed by gsp, Diego, just lost to fitch and might be dropping weight anyways,

i know it sucks but i would rather have them push the fight back a month or two, maybe add it too the super bowl card that would be huge.

i was really looking forward to this fight.
this is horrible horrible news
