We hear the term "Stacked" thrown around in the MMA community quite often to describe the overall depth of a card or division. Now I have only been a "Die-hard" MMA fan for 6 years, but I have never seen anything like the current UFC's welterweight division.
On November 16th GSP will defend his title against Johny Hendricks. If Hendricks pulls off the upset, we're looking at Hendricks/GSP 2 in spring/summer 2014. Who though would be next in line after Hendricks, if he is to lose against GSP? A great question with no clear answer, but more than enough options for both the short-term, & more excitingly the long-term.
TITLE FIGHT: Georges St. Pierre vs Johny Hendricks
CONTENDER #1: Robbie Lawler vs Rory McDonald winner
CONTENDER #2/WILDCARD: Ben Askren
CONTENDER #3: Demian Maia(if victorious over Shields)
GREAT FIGHTERS NOT LIKELY TO GET A TITLE SHOT: Josh Koscheck, Nate Marquardt, Jake Shields, Martin Kampmann, Thiago Alves(not retired believe it or not), Mike Pyle
