As far as setting up fights that people want to see, I think I have a good point. The one match up that made me think of starting this thread is the Bisping vs. Hendo fight. This may be a storybook ending to one of the best careers mma has ever seen, but check this out. I think there are, at least, 3 fighters off the top of my head I can think of that deserve the title shot next in the MW division : IMO..1) Rockhold trilogy, 2) Jacare, 3) Weidman. (but this goes for all of the weight classes)...and none of them are Hendo. As fighters make their way up the rankings, go on ridiculous win streaks, and eventually make it into the maybe the top 5 in the world in their weight class...those ARE the fights that people usually want to see anyway! You have a guy that is on a 6, 7 fight win streak, people's eyes are automatically drawn towards those fighters, as it is very difficult to string together that many wins now-a-days. To sum up what I'm trying to say, the fighters that are near the top of the heap, THOSE are the fights people normally want to watch! Didn't create this thread to bash Hendo, as I am a big fan of his. Just thinking beyond the surface of 'Fights people want to see'. The top -ranked, on crazy streaks, are the fights people want to see. They want to see the champ against someone who looks unstoppable at the time. IDK...maybe it's me.
