So, as we all know, this was GSP's big comeback from injury. What did we all see?

To me, I actually saw GSP trying for a finish. Carlos Condit, to his eternal credit, put up one hell of a fight - specifically from his back. If the fight could have been judged by the work a guy did in a defensive position, Condit was a big winner. I totally rate CC as one of the very best welterweights around now.

GSP got another decision win and he's lucky to have that. But in true GSP style, he came back from a shot that would have seen lesser fighters crying in their dressing rooms. Such is the make up of this man - this champion.

Will we see GSP vs Anderson Silva? Maybe. If GSP had won more convincingly, then it might have very well been announced tonight. As it was, he really did eke this one out. One single turn from the bottom could have given Carlos the victory. It was still a convincing victory - but only just.

In other news - that Hendricks knockout was bloody superb!

Thoughts?

GSP vs Silva isn't going to happen.
Jones vs Silva might though.

Really? That would be a really stupid decision, if he wanted that. Silva is much bigger than him, but maybe he just wants to see if he can control Silva with wrestling. I also don't think he'll be as good at 185 then he is at 170.
Jones and Silva are much more equal.

Yeah that knockout from Hendricks was pretty damn sweet.
I think there's a good chance we could see him (Hendricks) face GSP in the near future, these dream fights very rarely happen, But I would love to see Silva vs GSP so hopefully it can be sorted out.

So much respect for GSP to come back after that injury and perform the way he did against a very tough opponent.

I'm not going to pretend I'm a massive fan or know that much about it.. But I like watching UFC when it's on and if it happens to be a fighter that I like, I always enjoy watching it :)

So yeah, not a big fan.. but I do enjoy watching it when I know it's on.
