Anyways, I am at the point where I was with Bisping, just give Anderson his fight of choice (Rockhold it will have to be) and give Weidman a chance to burn off the 'ring rust' before his inenitable title shot. If Anderson is sticking around for another hand full of fights, like it sounds, Weidman will get his shot.
I understand that it doens't sit well but I do believe I am equating apples to apples here. Yes Pride was a rival organization but so was Strikeforce for a time and it had a downturn and folded. Was Strikeforce on the same level as Pride, no....is Rockhold anywhere close to Dan Henderson, I do not believe so.
The point I was making is that Henderson came from another organization as champion and lost his first fight in to Rampage and was still given a fight against Anderson.
