    Jacare got TKO'd by Whittaker in the first round.

    As much as I think Yoel missing weight was bullshit, Yoel Vs Whittaker is the only fight that makes sense right now.

    Whittaker just beat Romero though. Decisively. On one leg. Jacare deserves a damn title shot before he retires.

    let us not forget the "tainted supplement" right after the fight.
    IMO that fight should have been reversed to a NC... in which case Jacare should have been next

    nah.
    If anything Yoel & Jacare should be made for the interim.
    It Yoel misses weight again, he is out of MW, same way Kelvin got booted from WW.

    This would punish Yoel for missing weight, and allow Jacare a shot at the title as well.

    Are you retarded?

    Yoel did 5 rounds and lost by UD.

    Jacare got TKO'd the fuck out. It doesn't warrant a rematch.

    Fine, Jacare vs Romero for next title shot. Jacare beat Romero in many people's eyes. Whittaker outclassed Romero over 5. He caught Jacare with a shot. I would rather see Jacare fight him again, though I think it's moot, Whittaker will beat both.

    That seems like a good plan. Just don't know what's going to happen with Romero's leg. It seems pretty bad. And we still don't know when Whittaker will be back..

    Let Rob heal fully, make Romero/Jaracre 2....1st fight was close and they are both coming of big KO victories.

    Agree that Jacare beat Yoel, but he also lost to Whittaker last year so it's not like that would be a new matchup

    Yea, fair enough. Personally a fight that can go either way is usually controversial, I thought that that one wasnt, but one rd difference is still a close fight, any rd couldve been different with a huge strike or td...

    But yea semantics

    Probably not an immediate one though, since he wouldn't have had any defenses at all. Sure if he won his next fight or two of course they'd make the rubber match.

    and Romero vs Jacare rematch

    I hope so. I hate immediate rematches.

    I’ve read several posts mentioning Bisping.

    Bisping received the short end of the stick. It’s been 4 months since the GSP loss and now we’re not sure if he is retiring this year. He took a short notice fight since he was a “company guy” and was defeated in the first.

    He has literally been booted out of the mix.

    I believe a Rockhold vs Bisping 3 is in order. Winner gets a shot at top contender and then title shot. They will need 3 wins in a row in the wackiest MMA division in the world.

    It was 48-47, and Romero was competitive in the fifth. That's close.

    No more stalling, Yoel is a lock for the belt. Jacare is dunzos.

    you do understand he just beat Brunson and is the #2 contender (behind Yoel)?
    I mean you are not only blatantly wrong, but your reason for dismissal is aninine at best.
