    Not interested in the outcome, just the carnage.

    You could argue for the sense it makes if you're only looking rankings-wise, but the fact of the matter is that there's just no way they're making it for Bisping's last fight—as they shouldn't indeed.

    Bisping declined a Vitor fight because he doesn't want his last fight to have animosity, trash talk, he doesn't want his career to end like that. I can respect that, and the underlying logic of his reasoning applies to Rockhold just as well.

    Not happening.

    Bisping got the last word with Luke, but I think he should not push his luck.

    Good fight to make. Very risky for Luke though - if he loses it will be a severe scratch on his CV.

    Nevertheless proper fight to make.

    That would be awesome. Hope Rockhold takes him.

    It makes sense on paper but I'd rather not see either of these guys lose at this stage in their careers. I wouldn't mind if Bisping retired without another fight actually.

    Bisping got the last laugh. He doesnt want or need to fight Rockhold

    For Bisping to have the slightest chance.... Lightning would have to strike twice, and that passionate smooch against the fence would have to have completely ruined Luke (there's a fair chance of the latter, tbf)

    I would rather see
    Machida - Belfort
    Bisping - Marquart
    Rockhold at LHW

    Rockhold at LHW is a bad move but if you want to see him lose some more then you may like it
    as weak as LHW is, Rockhold is not cracking it, even the top 5

    not Gus, not Glover, not Volkan

    but he has a chance against OSP, Manuwa, Corey Anderson etc

    yes & no

    the advantages he has at MW
    he loses them to those guys who are big LHWs

    his best bet would be bellator

    I see, the size advantage for top game. But he can use that on Manuwa, cmon :)

    In Bellator it will be great for him, Carvalho, Mousasi, Shlemenko at MW

    if Luke can grow a chin at 205 then that's where he should be.

    He's essentially out of the MW title picture for the foreseeable future.

    Fuck off with this shit. Machida / Bisping is the most interesting fight out there at the moment.
