    Bisping wins Im thinking. Still baffled that he turned the Vitor rematch down though. I mean that's probably a way easier loss to avenge than 2016 Hendo at this point.

    Going with Bisping. Would be interesting. But think he gets the win and retires.

    Okami grapplefucks Bisping into retirement. Bad matchup for the Brit in this one.

    Believe Okami said he was going to fight at welterweight. Plus if this did happen, I got Bisping here. Okami isn't what he used to be, he's gotten old and his game hasn't evolved.

    Four-five years ago, I think Okami would have beaten him in a competitive fight.

    These days, I'd go Bisping by higher workrate.

    This is a fight that never crossed my mind, even back when Okami was a relevant MW. I'd watch.

    Ew. Talk about fucking boring. Too bad Bisping's ducking Vitor and Machida is booked, either one would have been a perfect send-off.

    A nice nostalgic match-up, but considering this Bisping's last, I think it's a waste.

    I think he should just take the Belfort fight and avenge that loss. Probably the best redemption story for Bisping, and a winnable fight as well.

    Bring back Dan Henderson for a rubber match.

    Okami is not an interesting opponent.
    Let's make Bisping vs Nick Diaz for Bisping's last fight.

    I'm glad he did. Belfort and Bisping BOTH deserve to end their careers with a win if possible and having them fight each other for their last fight would have ensured one of them left with a loss in their last fight.

    I did not realize that Bisping and Okami never crossed paths, thats pretty crazy considering they both had pretty similar careers up until Bisping won the belt. Is Okami moving back up to MW? If so, I would definitely be down to see this fight!
