    UFC seriously needs to put out the dumpster fire that is the middleweight championship today and just have an 8 man tourney for the belt, Strikeforce style:

    Whittaker
    Romero
    Rockhold
    Weidman
    Jacare
    Brunson
    Gastelum
    Borrachina/Branch

    Match them up however, i dont care, but i no longer give a single fuck who the middleweight champ is and they need to do something to restore validity to the division and an interim belt is not the answer

    Still one of the better divisions imo

    Two jokers fucked it up

    (Bisping and Gsp)

    Pair of dickheads


    Give it 6 month, both will be gone and the MW division will be great again

    Except Whittaker is the champ.

    That division definitely can have the belt changing hands often tho, top 5-7 are all elite, no clear best guy in that division

    8 is not enough, 16 man tournaments are always better

    Whittaker
    Romero
    Rockhold
    Jacare
    Weidman
    Brunson
    Gastelum
    Branch
    Costa
    Sapato Jr
    Hall
    Jotko
    Marreta
    Anders
    A. Smith
    Boetsch

    <Goldie11>

    Alternates: Tavares, Machida, Mutante, Theodorou..

    Why would Whittaker give up the belt to run the gauntlet again when he just did it? Not his fault the brass let Bisping dictate how the division was run.

    I agree that division is frustrating though.

    Now this is pod racing!!!
    Whitaker vs. Rocksalt for the WBC UFC MW title
    Romero vs. Weidman for the IBF UFC MW Title
    Jacare vs. Mousasi's ghost for the WBA UFC MW Title

    That would solve it all............

    MW continues to be a shitshow despite there being a ton of talent there.

    take out Hall or Boetsch and put in Bisping for his last fight against Romero, or let Costa make a name for himself.

    Just have the Rockhold/Romero winner fight Whittaker once he heals up.

    unless it's Romero which should have been or maybe Luke rubber match. he's still ranked and a former champ. would be some balls to enter a tourney right at retirement. not a fan of Bisping though, but would be bad ass to do that if a tourney would really happen
