He has a speech impediment.

GSP vacating belt, taking time off

Hendricks vs Lawler for the belt, rather it be Condit myself.

I like lawler but a title shot Puzzled

EDIT - thinking about it, with Lawler beating Macdonald, Diaz being retired and Hendricks having already fought Condit i guess it makes sense

Wonder if the UFC pushed for this after the backlash of the decision. This way Hendricks gets his hands on an (interim) belt if he beats Lawler, which he likely will. Maybe thats why they've given the fight to Lawler, I like him a lot but right now he's possibly an easier fight than the true runner, Carlos Condit. Lawler will stand and bang and thats just what Hendricks wants.

Don't think so considering how much money GSP brings to the UFC and a brand icon for them. I bet Dana isn't happy but what can he do.

Lawler to win and then Condit. Hope we see Rory get back to form after the last two matchups.

That doesnt really matter though Phelen because GSP only fights twice a year, sometimes only once. So he might have had 6 months off regardless of this advertised "vacation". But this way they can rake in some "interim champ" money, let Jonny knock a few people out then fight Georges in 8 months for a hugely anticipated rematch.

Either he'll be back in 8 months or this is his retirement; at at 32 with a few years left in him I cant see him turning his back on $5 million per fight.

GSP vs Hendricks (or whoever interim champ is) at Montreal next August/September I'm telling you.

Guess he didn't say what he's taking time off for?

Tom Daley's new boyfriend?
