    Thats the question, Mousasi or Belfort? Do they go for another money/story fight or a more legitimate title shot?

    If Jacare is smart, he'll be on a treadmill that week somewhere in Manchester.

    Honestly I don't see why the UFC doesn't start paying for alternates. You train and get ready, medicals, the whole deal. Obviously this only makes sense in specific marquee fights, but this is one of them.

    Cough up a small flat fee like 10k and then a per diem for fight week to be an alternate when you're not preparing for another fight.

    Tim Boetsch. He's 3-6 in his last 9 just like Hendo. Hell he probably deserves it more at least his 1 fight win streak is over a guy who has a win at MW in the last 4 years.

    Won't be Jacare.

    Jacare not taking short notice fights is why Bisping is wearing the gold.
