    According to a live stream he just did on FB but can't announce it until the UFC does. He claims that a win in the fight will make him the #1 contender to fight Bisping if Bisping beats Hendo.

    Thoughts on who he's fighting? If it would make him the #1 contender it has to be Rockhold, Weidman or Jacare but I can't decide which is most likely.

    Tim is tough but I think he loses more often than he wins against any of them as he can't really outstrike or outgrapple all 3 of them. Either way, good to see him back in the Octagon as top 10 fighters sitting out for years hurts the sport.

    That's awesome. I'm excited to see him back in there.

    Do you have a source?

    I actually got the inside scoop. He's fighting his greatest rival.

    LOL at Kennedy in a top contender fight. Maybe a Romero rematch or possibly Rob Whittaker. If it's against Weidman, a better wrestler/grappler with better stand-up and more power, Timmeh is gonna catch another beating.

    It has to be Jacaré if the winner will get Bisping or Hendo.

    Weidman makes sense, tho so does Rashad. Probably going to be Rockhold vs Anderson so they're tied up and you have to let Jacare wait by for his title shot. I like it!
