If Georges St. Pierre beats Jake Shields at UFC 129, the UFC's welterweight world could be turned on its ear. GSP title will be vacated and he's headed for the middleweight division to challenge Anderson Silva. Putting together a potential interim title fight has become next to impossible.

Jon Fitch and B.J. Penn just fought to an unsatisfying draw. Shields and Josh Koscheck will be coming off losses to St. Pierre. Carlos Condit has been hot of late, but has he done enough to be in the mix. Is there another wild card? Maybe Martin Kampmann or Diego Sanchez force themselves into the picture with a devastating win tomorrow at UFC on Versus 3.

Yahoo! Sports' lead MMA writer Kevin Iole talked to us about the Fitch-Penn fight, the UFC's options if GSP is gone and the debate about five rounders for all main events.
