Bisping just came off a definitive loss to Tim Kennedy. Cung Le has been inactive for awhile, but last KO'd Rich Franklin cold, which is a better win than Bisping has ever accomplished. Le might only have 1 or 2 more fights left in him. Stands to reason that you'd want to give him a fight where the opponent stands to gain something from the win and is deserving of the fight. You have Kennedy, Rockhold, and even Jacare who could use the win over Le to get the casuals interested in them. And if you want to just showcase Le's striking, there's better striking based fighters out there that offer more excitement than Bisping's hit and run style. This fight just seems like a terrible waste of what little is left of Cung Le's MMA career. Bisping doesn't deserve it off merit and it could have been used as a way to elevate the opponent with a win.
