    I was thinking about this and man did Bisping dodge a bullet.



    Is there even any other way this fight could have gone other than a 1st or 2nd round KO?

    I like Bisping, but there is still this part of me that wishes this fight would have happened so we could witness a historical highlight reel.

    The fans, Yoel and even Bisping knew there was only one way this fight would turn out.

    Bisping should be forever grateful to GSP for coming out of retirement.

    Bisping said he would fight Yoel in a quick turn around but Yoel lossed to Whittaker when the UFC decided to make an interim title.

    I would have been pissed to be in Yoel's position tbh. He basically got robbed of a sure title, instead had to fight Whittaker.

    Had the fight stayed together, Nicco Montano would have been the biggest underdog champ in UFC history at something like +450.

    Almost forgot about that one. Not sure which one would have been a bigger underdog. It would have been close for sure.
