As long as Whittaker is out, there is no clear cut contender anyway. Nobody at MW has a right to complain about that fight: Romero just fought for the interim title and lost, could not fight Bisping for the real title, has not won since Jacare just lost to Whittaker and has not won since, could not fight for the real title Weidman lost 3 in a row, among others to Romero (who just lost top Whittaker) and Rockhold; a win over a fat WW does not give you a title shot (in fairness he is not complaining) Rockhold, I am a big fan but he is behaving like the worst crybaby ever: He lost to Bisping and hasn't fought since. He couldn't challenge for the title if he wanted to, his last win was almost two years ago, his last fight (which he lost) was more than one year ago. He hasn't fought any other top contender or anybody at all for that matter. How would he get a title shot right now? Don't get me wrong, as a big GSP fan I am not a big fan of this fight, I think he should have come back to WW in order to further cement his legacy there instead of taking such a high risk in a weight class in which he won't stay. And ofc the UFC should move on with the MW division. But what is Luke losing out on exactly when he has not "qualified" himself for a title fight anyway?
