Lol at all of the "They're protecting Bisping!" idiots. Don't you mouth breathers ever learn? Bisping has been in there with Dan Henderson (arguably during his prime ) Chael Sonnen, Vitor Belfort (In some of the scariest form of his career.) Yet the UFC are protecting him from... Luke Rockhold? Lol, sherdog never disappoints.

Oh, and for the millionth time. HE ISN'T A UK PPV DRAW! The UK doesn't have PPV. He makes the UFC far more money fighting in the States.

Do people here honestly want to see Bisping vs Rockhold? I mean, I can understand casuals that get caught up in the shit talking and don't really know too much about either guy, but anyone who follows their careers knows that fight has everything to not be competitive at all. Machida vs Rockhold, on the other hand, is much more evenly matched.

The fact that he's fought elite fighters at points in his nearly decade-long UFC career does not mean they can't pick his fights carefully at other times. Despite winning his last fight, Bisping is still in the biggest funk of his career having alternated wins and losses his past 6 fights. If he were to suffer a devastating loss to Rockhold what's left for him? There would be no more big fights for him. Nothing to justify his inflated salary. The UFC likes Bisping, but they aren't going to pay him that salary to fight in meaningless fights against guys like Brad Tavares.

Bisping rarely fights in the US, only 6 of his past 19 fights have taken place here. He's used primarily for international cards, often headlining them. That's his role with the UFC.

Yeeep. We in the uk either get btsport free with btinternet and tv package or subscribe and get all the ufc cards.
Bisping/rockhold will be more exciting than rockhold chasing machida.

LOL at 50/50 against DC or gus, machida would get handled bad by both and by belfort. What in machidas last fights makes anyone think different?? a flurry in the 5th round against weidman.

Die hard fans! haha im only a whitebelt on sherdog!, watch every ufc event, used to love watching machida when he actually fought!, now Its like he saw guida running and thought its a good idea!
