Unless you have been living under a rock, you know GSP will not be defending his belt against Carlos Condit at UFC 137...but all is not lost.
There are still some explosive, meaningful, and most important entertaining fights in Las Vegas this Saturday night. You may even see GSP hobble into the arena to make an appearance and say, "I am not impressed by your performance."
BJ Penn will be headlining against the enigmatic Nick Diaz in a possible number one contender fight. It's definitely not set in stone, but the winner could go on to challenge the winner of the Condit/GSP fight, when it happens of course.
Also, Matt "Meathead" Mitrione will look to maintain his perfect record against the dangerous comeback knockout heavyweight gatekeeper in Cheick Kongo. This will be a power punching clash that will most likely not go to the judges cards.
Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, a fan favorite, will try to continue his surprising run toward a title shot when he takes on the crafty Dennis Siver. This fight will shake up things in the lightweight division. (Watch out for that spinning back kick, Cowboy)
And for all you that love before and after pictures, Roy Nelson (who supposedly got in leaner shape for this fight) looks to put another legend out to pasture when he meets the man simply known as "Cro Cop."
