    Full of it is the wrong translation.
    Full (in Portuguese) means fed up.

    You need to use your brain though.There's no "if" like you are making up.

    Bisping fought Hendo.
    Now Bisping is healthy enough to fight GSP, but when Jacare called him out, he claimed he was injured (healthy enough to fight GSP, but not Jacare).
    And now he avoided Yoel and is fighting GSP....
    Both (Hendo & GSP) were not even fighting at this division, and both are not top contenders.

    Meanwhile, Jacare was a top contender and was supposed to receive a title shot before Luke.
    But Luke leapfrogged him.

    this is BS.
    Fighters are in it to get to the top.
    This cannot be treated only as a greedy show.

    If the fight was scheduled and someone got hurt, people would understand.

    But time after time, you make fights for the champion against not top contenders, the belt ceases to be valid. SImple as that

    What I'm saying is that this isn't like in boxing where you have champs fighting some top 10 guy on one of the 4 lists who is basically a top 15-20 in the world

    Pretty much all the title fights are in the top 5 in the UFC with some rare exceptions like GSP and Hendo.

    They have a company to run, they have dates to book, if they take anyone in the top 5, we shouldn't whine about it, it's still a legit fight. If the UFC decided it was this guy or that guy because of the calendar or because the guy is a bigger draw, why we just don't sit back and watch the show.

    If a fighter feels it should be is turn, he just need to book a fight and show it

    this is not broadway, and you are not talking about a show.
    This is supposed to be a sport and there's no picking and choosing who is next to the belt.
    That's why there are rankings.

    Everyone can understand one guy here or there jumping the line, or taking a fight as a replacement (like Bisping did himself).

    But you can't ignore it forever.

    And I am sorry, but claiming we should all bow to whatever UFC choses to do is just plain stupid.

    We can agree or not with their assessment.

    Most don't even like the fact Yoel is the top contender.

    But we have the full right to not like the mockery of this sport for the sake of profit.

    I don't really see the appeal in Bisping fighting a welterweight who has been retired for years. Should we see if Penn can come out of retirement to fight the champ next?

    The whole "make your own push" formula should stay in sports entertainment where it belongs. There's no reason that guys who have won fights and done well shouldn't be given a title shot. That is how a sports organization is supposed to function.

    He's right and he's not bluffing. He would make big $$$ opening his own BJJ/MMA gym.

    This can be said of Mousasi, Jacare, Weidman, and Yoel... I think Yoel is the best match-up of any of them, but still unlikely that Bisping beats him. And I say this as a Bisping fan... The Hendo fight... Sure, I was OK with it just to make sure he got that title defense that everyone said he couldn't get... But enough is enough.

    While I like the GSP fight on paper, and I think its a fun fight... I feel bad for the division being held at a standstill and the top contenders who all deserve a shot have to fight each other now, eliminating the losers chances for a shot at the belt because they are coming off a loss...

    In what world is Jacare boring? Awesome ground game and pretty exciting standup. Not sure what more you want unless you mean the trashtalk shit that has nothing to do with fighting and is just meaningless drama.

    Difference is when he fought Rockhold he had nothing to lose. Since then he has absolutely avoided the top contenders.

    The only fight is against Romero, that was a close fight that he could win.

    That's true.

    But the narrative some folk are saying, that he willingly avoided the top contenders is not true. The UFC/Dana can't physically make him fight anyone, but the people saying Bisping asked for the Henderson fight is daft.

    The fight was a waste of time with Henderson as he was retiring and on account of who he'd fought prior to it being made. Henderson had nothing to lose going into that fight, too, considering it was his last one and he nearly KO'd him.

    He did what most fighters do after they win a fight; took time off, did some media as the fight was held in England and then had his knee operated on. He'd be crazy to turn down the GSP fight. Any fighter who says they'd turn it down are outright lying.

    Jacare Souza is definitely the uncrowned MW champ. After he beats Whittaker, UFC would probably feed him Luke or Romero. Can't be sure about whether he can get title shot even he beats Luke. SAD.

    People who believe jacare would beat bisping are blinded with hate.. bisping is a bad match up for jacare .. rockhold would finish jacare in a rematch .. bisping is a great wrestler, good boxing , great stamina, great chin.. I'd take bisping > jacare . Bisping is so disrespected even though he has the best resume in mw history

    I don't really like Jacare but attitudes like this make me angry. Titles should be held by THE BEST and not the most entertaining fighters.
