Well Garcia-Matthysse is a very quality fight, but it would be kind of dumb for GBP to pursue that fight until Matthysse becomes a bit more of a known quantity. Plus if that fight is what it could be action wise you want the most possible eye balls on that fight for the sport.
Linking his name up with Rios is a way to build Matthysse's name which is GBP real goal, use a more popular guys name to build up a lesser known guy it is one of the oldest tricks in the book. If the fight happens great beating Rios would mint Matthysse to a certain degree, or if the fight doesn't happen (or can't happen) spin to make it look like the bigger named guy is ducking the fight and that works also especially for a guy like Matthysse who has the look of a killer.
