    Hendo claims that if he wins the title, he'd retire leaving the MW title vacant. So who fights for it

    Pretty much all MW contenders are coming of losses

    I say tournament over a year. Take the top 8 fighters and pair them off on one PPV. Then a few months later the winners fight each other then at the end of the year have the last two guys fight for the title. In the event of an injury in the first round of the tournament the number 9 and 10 ranked fighters step in.

    I like the idea of a tournament, but I hate the idea of Mike losing the belt.

    A little 4 man tournament would be awesome but it won't be needed.
    I love Hendo but I'm pretty sure Left Look Larry takes it this time.

    Anderson will smoke Rockhold then fight the winner of Weidman/Jacare or Weidman/Romero (whichever fight is made)

    If hendo wins, its gonna be brutal and bisping will prob be out for 6 months

    I hope hendo wins.. Just to shut bisping down... But... If you can't defend it... Does winning the belt really matter? .... The title is becoming redundant.... With injuries and fluke victories..... Bring back the grand prix.... Separate the real fighters from the others.

    Neither of these fights are announced, right? Just speculation? I've seen it referenced multiple times this thread already. Did a quick Google search and couldn't find anytime. Also, Rockhold cannot even train for the following month because if his knee.

    Wont matter. When hendo gets hurt and pulls out Mousasi will replace him and fuck Bisping up with ease for the title.
