    So after chasing Andersons shadow for all these years he finally beat him. i think this will be bispings greatest achievement and really has nothing left for the division. we know he will never get a title shot, so i think he should just go out on a good win.

    Maybe he should try to avenge himself on TRTless Vitor or grab a win over another declining legend in Machida.

    I'd love to see him get revenge against Hendo, even if a win over Dan Henderson these days probably wouldn't mean a whole lot.

    I'm pretty sure he feels closer to a title shot than ever before now. Retirement seems like the last thing that would be on his mind.

    With Bispings eye and Silva clearly losing his speed and reactions both should probably retire. Bisping can go out on a high here and enjoy retirement as a panellist and maybe a commentator.

    I agree. i dont see him cracking top 5 for the time he has left. if anything he'll stay a gatekeeper for guys like uriah hall and robert whittaker (which would be good fights)

    No, but if he values his health going forward he should take several months off.

    Bisping is not going to retire. Regardless of what you think of his skillset. He has always showed heart and dedication. Maybe one day he will fight for the title. And when he probably loses he will retire then

    Bisping Vitor 2 would make a good fight.

    He should fight Hendo and/or Vitor. I wouldn't mind him fighting Anderson again, either.

    Love to see the Whittaker fight but Bisping is way above that right now. Maybe a Mousasi fight after this one. Too bad every other top fighter at 185 has a fight booked right now. If Rockhold gets injured make the Bisping vs weidman fight.
