    Chris Weidman won his last fight and is back in title contention. Who should be next for him?

    Wouldn't mind seeing a hematch with Luke, or maybe even a fight with Jacare.

    Jacare. Because Rockhold/ Romero is a lot more intriguing than Weidman/ Romero 2.

    He beat a WW. Gastelum looked tiny. I don’t know that he is back in contention. He’s 2 + wins away from title shot. Souza or rematch with Rockhold, though I doubt he wins either.

    He loses to Rockhold and Romero by devastating TKO but a win against Gastekum gets him back in contention?

    1 win and that means he is back in contention?

    He shouldnt be back in contention and its stupid he's upset about the current backlog. It actually helps him because he'll get good fights when he really shouldnt right now.

    Jacare is probably the fight they make, but imo Boestch is a lot more appropriate for someone coming off a 1-3 run.

    People saying Luke are being ridiculous, Luke has had one misstep whereas Chris got beat down three times. Luke should fight Romero, winner fights Whittaker because Bisping/GSP will duck the shit out of him.

    TS as delusional as Weidman. Back in title contention?

    He almost got knocked out by a fat WW...

    Jacare would be good, but honestly, both him and Jacare deserve another rebound fight to build back up, someone from UFC’s MW 11-15 hankings: Jotko/Boetsch/Santos/Tavares.

    In the meantime, Rockhold-Romero winner fights Brunson-Machida winner, with the winner fighting Whittaker for the real belt (not that meaningless one around Bisping’s waist).

    I forgot about the loss to Gegard. I thought he only lost to Romero and Luke. Dude is 4 wins at best away from title fight.

    Besides, GSP or Bisping won’t fight Whittaker until summer of 2018. If Bisping beats GSP I expect he’ll call out Rich Franklin anyway.

    It’s a long wait for a title shot. Rockhold should fight Romero and Weidman should fight Souza.

    Luke won. Weidman won. Time to do the rematch.

    I'd prefer Weidman vs Jacare & Romero vs Rockhold

    Jacare/Weidman and Rockhold/Romero is what should and most likely will happen.

    Rockhold vs Romero is the fight to make to determine whoever gets the shot after Whittaker.

    Chris vs Jacare sounds good.
