    I imagine they'd just book Bisping vs Weidman for the title. I would like the tournament idea though.

    Jacare vs Weidman, Romero vs Rockhard. Winners fight for the title.

    So bisping gets a free ride for this?

    He called for this fight.... if he loses he is out imo.

    unless if they make a tournament. id be fine to have him there, but thats as far as ill go with that idea.

    Depends on how Bisping-Henderson unfolds

    But if it's a decisive KO, then tourney it up, because no way should Bisping be allowed right back in the mix if he loses his first title defense that he hand picked.

    I havent been following whitaker closely.

    I agree with all the others you mentioned. Originally i had though of Bisping in his place or even Uriah Hall.
    I had no idea he was on a streak. I need to start paying attention.

    I don't like the Count..hope Hendo H-bombs him again, might not happen though..but he did beat Luke, who beat Weidman, who beat Silva..Bisping got the TS based pretty much on the situation..but he is/ or might be a former champ..either way he's losing to whoever he fights next, if he gets by Hendo..

    It should be a ladder match. The winner has to climb that ladder and grab the belt

    Love the idea, but I'd think you have to throw bisping in that tourney being that he is champ now. Earn a shot at redemption against rest of the field would be fair. And yes, I'd throw Diaz in there as an alternate or wild card. Not sure who I would remove though...

    He won't win, Jacare will take the belt from Bisping

    I might have missed this, but if he has said that already then he shouldnt fight for the belt, i mean we all know that is a huge posibility that in case he wins he retires, but then is just dumb to give him the fight and then have a vacated belt only because some dumb rematch might make more money than a legit title fight. SMH.
