    So is Whittaker the champion as of now and this counts as his first title defense or are they fighting for the belt therefore its not a defense for RW?

    Maybe. But I doubt Bisping protested to much lol.

    (I've been a Bisping fan since he was a contestant on TUF. I still like the guy. But his championship run was less than stellar)

    Then why fight for the middleweight title? You think it's fair to the other 185 fighters? If you do, you may be as immoral as gsp.

    GSP isn't the Middleweight champion anymore because he beat Bisping who was the fake paper champ. The real champ was always Whittaker.

    It'll be a nightmare for you eh?

    Belt 1 stripped just days after Belt 2 attained. Belt 2 stripped...at some point.

    Neither defended.

    Rob was out, but he was interim. Have Luke fight Bisping and Rob fight the winner. Georges held the division up whether you guys want to give him a free pass or not.

    I respect GSP for giving up the belt quickly since he has no intention to defend it, but in reality, how can we honestly say moving up and beating Bisping is any bigger accomplishment for GSP than moving up and beating Griffin for Silva?

    Did you expect him to not fight for a title making a comeback?

    Before the fight "I will defend the belt against Robert, I have it in my condracts", now vacates title after a number of excuses.

    Bisping won't fight real contenders in his own division ever. He takes a GSP fight he thinks he will be easy.

    GSP beats his ass and gives the belt to the rightful champion who never would have got his shot otherwise. He then returns to his own division to reign and fight all challengers.

    I swear this guy is like Batman and Jesus molded into one.

    The days of Conor and Bisping holding up divisions to extend their "reign" and being ducking cowards are hopefully over.

    Why didn't he fight Woodley then? He just as easily could've. Now he ducked an entire division and held it up, for a paycheck fight. Bisping is just as culpable.

    The man was ill...shitting blood and couldn't train to his full capacity for a month leading into the fight...and still won.

    Let that sink in for a minute haters....then compare that to your sad life and the many much lesser factors that have made you quit.

    This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. He jumped the second Bisping won the belt. He took advantage of one of the weakest champions in history. Not his fault, the UFC let it happen. Good on him for dropping the belt, tho. Better than McFucking the MW division up.

    Not gonna hold it against him.

    First, he didn't put the whole division on hold like certain "champ", and second, it was the smart thing to do for him. If he admitted he had a rough time with Bisping, then imagine the problems he'd have with the actual top three at 185.

    Main reason why I won't be hating on the guy. He's OK in my book.
