    Well Ping will most certainly lose the strap the first time he faces an actual contender so there's a chance Jacare could then get a shot

    A reasonable frame of mind. I wish him nothing but the best. He's a class individual. I still hope he somehow gets a TS. But, it's not looking too good.

    Between the fuckery, and duckery. He's getting screwed over.

    Fluke.
    If they fought again, Rockhold would be the rightful favourite.

    Although, I'm not too sure how Rockhold will look after the injury.

    To be fair, Tony deserves a LW titleshot more than Jacare deserves a MW title shot and he still hasn't got one!

    All these guys are approaching 40 years old. Its a complete embarrassment that they had to wait this long and now even longer to geta title shot. Romero may not see his until next year because GSP needs 6 months to get ready lol. They need to book the bisping fight for 212 so we can get this division moving again. Lets pray that GSP does not win this belt.

    Before I quote what you said - why does this have to be an 'argument?' It's a debate to me, but if you want to see it as an argument, that's no problem. And if you want to feel like you're winning it, that's cool as well.

    I'm pretty sure he was responding to Diaz before he won the belt. Anyway, I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon.

    RE: Mousasi's record; one of those losses was to Hall which broke up some momentum. Then the other fighters he fought apart from Leites were nowhere near a title shot. Beating Belfort now he's off the TRT shows what a different fighter he is. His last fight was beating Hall, and now he has Weidman. He has to win that fight before he's mentioned in the running for the title. He has two other fighters ahead who are clearly ahead of him, but lady luck can always play a part somewhere down the line if the other two get injured.

    It's not about being right or wrong - I think you have a different narrative on some things. Calling Bisping a coward when it's quite the opposite, imo.

    Another thing you don't seem to touch on is when I mention GSP saying in an interview that he 'picked' Bisping for his comeback fight. But you want to stay on the topic of cowardly Bisping.

    I could easily bring up Mousasi and his whining about the Hall fight - when he said he was 'encouraged' to finish fights and after Hall sparked him out, he went on a meltdown saying he was forced to fight more high risk. Complaining about the Machida fight and him being greased up and accusing him of being on PEDs. Machida informed USADA he took something on the banned list from a different fight. So, at the time when the UFC see him lose to Machida, Souza and Hall, maybe they think he isn't at that level to be fighting for a title.

    Lol-'ypu you read wrong (or I posted wrong)..other way around, mousasi was offered to coward and he said " nah, Bisping Mousasi is bad for business "
    Please...moose would be a -270 favorite and turn Bisping s face into chopped meat and his bad eye ball may come popping out.
    You said it- easy payday plus the title

    Let me ask you a wquestion.....who would beat a top 5mw and then become one because of it then 4 weeks later go backwards and take a risk and fight someone who beat him ?
    The answer is NO ONE.Nobody on UFC roster would take that chance.Mousasi knew 100% it was a fluke and even said so leading up to rematch in week before that he knew he was not only the superior fighter but knew he was winning.
    That's called a brand of confidence that we don't see in this sport anymore.
    He got to top 5 where he deserved to be and still wanted TO SHUT UP EVERYBODY ABOUT THAT FIGHT AND HE DID EXACTLY THAT in short 1st round work.

    Listen, agsin, quit while you're not ahead.youre not going to win this.Dont respond anymore (Don't worry, I won't brag about making you my----------......youve got my word)

    Real leverage. When you don't need fighting to pay the bills.

    Jacare can open some serious gyms in both the US and Brazil and make fuckloads with his name. Who in the US wouldn't want to train BJJ under Jacare? Especially got MMA reasons?

    Well looks like he will have to retire because the following guys deserve title shots before him in this order

    1)Romero
    2)Rockhold
    3)Weidman vs Mous winner

    Without getting into a debate on the overall fairness of fighter pay, we can all agree its setup as a 'winner take all' scenario where the champion is eligible for PPV points and drastically higher payouts.

    That means the belt is literally the carrot at the end of the stick keeping these guys driving forward, certainly the veterans who are currently contenders.

    If you consider that there is no longer any semblance of meritocracy related to title shots, this should be a huge turnoff for guys like Jacare. If I'm in his position, I'm also thinking about moving on with my career.

    What, they can't fight anymore, they can't just book a fight and actually fight if it's not for a title shot.

    There's only one belt, the champ can get injured, he can be offered a ''special fight'', he can take some time off, he can be waiting for a contender to be ready.

    The UFC have a schedule to book, very few fights can headline a PPV or a UFC on FOX card, they need to get things going, so any fights that are really big, like GSP VS Bisping, will be ahead of ''having to please a #4 ranked guy who threatens to retire''.

    We need to stop whining about this guy is more deserving than this guy because he beat that guy... Most of the times, almost every title fight is against a top 5 contender or a special case of legends like Hendo or GSP. It's far form tune up fights

    So all the top 5 contenders should just try to stay relevant by trying to book the biggest fight possible and if they do well and are crowd pleasing they 'll be able to headline a card and by that they won't even need to ask for a title shot.
