UFC 129 Aftermath: The 10 Best Fights to Make Post-UFC 129
Bleacher Report's Danny Acosta:
UFC 129 brought viewers Georges St-Pierre’s welterweight record sixth title defense by snapping Jake Shields’ six year, 15-fight win streak with a five-round unanimous decision.
A UFC record of 55,000 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada this past Saturday also watched Jose Aldo retain the UFC featherweight crown in a 25-minute Fight of the Night against Canadian challenger Mark Hominick and Lyoto Machida emphatically ended UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture’s storied career with a first round knockout.
Here are 10 bouts fans may find kicking around UFC matchmaker Joe Silva’s desk in the aftermath of UFC 129.
1) Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz
While Georges St. Pierre continued the most dominant run in welterweight history at UFC 129, “Rush” did so with his fourth consecutive decision. Striking with Jake Shields for 25-minutes did little to spark interest in the St-Pierre-Anderson Silva super-fight outside of notching the requisite "W."
Silva has finished all but two of his eight UFC title fights, while St-Pierre has only finished two of six—the last in January of 2009. Non-committal in his post-fight interview about moving up 15-pounds to face the most devastating finisher in UFC history, it’s likely “GSP” maintains his position at welterweight.
