But hell no to Bisping/Belfort itself.
That would be more appropriate. A tournament situation would garner alot more fan interest then simply making Belfort/Bisping being the interim title eliminator as there is a space of time when 3 fights would be more appropriate than only 2.
Weidman/Boetsch - Bisping/Vitor
Winner 1 vs. 2
Belcher/Okami. Both need two major wins for a title shot, imo. Even despite Belcher's wins prior to injury.
Anderson will be avoiding the MW division for a long time if GSP wins. If Anderson leaves the MW division, he will be gone over a year.
