    On the same night we will be seeing Chris Weidman vs Luke Rockhold and Jacare Souza vs Yoel Romero. Obviously the 2 winners will end up facing each other barring injury or failed drug test.

    What will the next middleweight title fight be?

    If Chris loses he will get a rematch. I am sure he has a rematch clause in his contract like the rest of the champions seem to have. Romero or Jacare should be next.

    Romero - Weidman

    Should have been the MW title fight 18 months ago, which I posted in another thread. Romero isn't getting any younger.

    I hope it's Weidman/Jacare

    In reality..I'm starting to think it'll be Rockhold/Jacare 2. I hope I'm wrong

    Yeah, and Jon Jones should have gotten a title shot after beating Vera or Matyushenko if he were celebrating his 37th birthday. It was obvious then that Romero was a beast. No reason to delay the inevitable for a guy who is on the irreversible physical decline of his late 30's.

    UFC has always made guys fight way too many times to earn a title shot. Shit, a guy like Ben Rothwell has won four of his last five and has looked really impressive over his last three fights. He's beaten guys like Schaub, Overeem and Mitrione. I say give him a title eliminator fight, but UFC would rather give Bigfoot his 177th failed title bid instead and make Rothwell win three more times before giving him a title fight.

    If a guy looks good, fresh, refined, improved, intriguing ... shit, give him a chance. Way better than the stale rematches we've been subjected to. But the UFC only treats you that way if you're marketable and profitable and from a market they want to exploit (preferably with English-speaking white guys!), like Conor. Then you get the one-way ticket to a title fight. If you're Khabib Nurmogomedov, they give you Pat fuckin' Healy after you've rattled off three straight dominant wins that started with Gleison Tibau. This is why UFC is a joke as a legitimate sport and is a sports entertainment business first, like WWE.

    Pretty sure that was the question he was asking and I believe you are correct.

    I know jacare has a ton of fanboys on here, but I don't really care to see the guy fight. I'd much rather see Romero fight teh Chris. Finishing Kennedy, and machida is more then jacare has done lately, anyway.

    I think Weidman vs Romero is next. Though Weidman vs Jacare would be good too, both are intriguing fights. I don't see Rockhold getting it done.
