Georges St. Pierre’s list of challengers just got smaller as he has already beaten every top level fighter in the UFC 170 pound weight division. St. Pierre looks unbeatable and has already cleaned out the welterweight division. So who’s next for the Canadian fighter at welterweight?
The first time these two fought GSP beat him so badly. However, 9 out of his last 7 fights have all gone to a decision. Since many don’t consider Fitch exciting, the UFC may be less likely to grant him a title shot. However, St Pierre he has already best him and most fans do not want to see another lopsided fight.
Alves is the heaviest striker who could actually knock out GSP. However, he has to first hit him and first. Again he already fought and lost to St Pierre in convincing fashion. Though Alves is set to undergo exploratory surgery, he could be back in action as early as UFC 114. However, it may be 2 or 3 years if Alves fights and continues to win.
Paulo Thiago is probably going to get the next shot at the title is he wins his fight with Martin Kampmann. Thiago is often ranked among the top ten welterweights in the world by leading mixed martial arts publications. He has a black belt in jiu-jitsu and in judo and has decent hands. Though Thiago could be just one or two solid wins away from deserving a match with St. Pierre, he’s not necessarily a fan favorite among American audiences.
Many hardcore fans want to see him face St. Pierre and Shields. This is the fight everyone MMA fan wants to see. Shield’s is the best welterweight in the world besides St Pierre. He is better on the ground than GSP is and holds a black belt in jiu-jitsu under Cesar Gracie. Shields also has very good wrestling credentials and was a 2 time All American wrestler.
If there is a guy that will beat or at least put up a fight it is Jake Shields
