How many more title contention fights will we get from the UFC for Bisping??
And I have to watch that kick again. One of the angles in the gif's makes it look like Bisping saw the kick, went low to catch it, and then got caught in the head. If so, he was doing his gameplan - find ways to drag Vitor to the ground. And good on Vitor for mixing it up.
I go MIA for 6 months and come back to this shit...
Weidman is in there like swimwear, nobody else is even really on the radar.

I can see the case that all the other contenders just recently loss so he would get a shot by default, but that doesn't make him the clear number one, specially after Rockhold just signed. (Weidman beat Maia as much as Boetsch beat Lombard.)
I really think Weidman would be better off with one more fight before Anderson.
Analytically : Rockhold and Weidman have a 9 fight winning streak, in terms of experience Weidman has 5 fights in the UFC and Rockhold has 3 title fights with 2 of them being a 5 rounder. Pretty even I think.
I think Evans would make it for a great challanger as well, so would Lombard if he wins his next one.
(hope this was a less grumpy post)
Man, I'd love to see Anderson/Rashad, that'd be a helluva interesting matchup.
Give Weidman a tune-up fight after the long layoff, say against Rockhold for the SF title and number 1 contendership to expose Chris to a wider audience on say, a co-main PPV.

Usually, I would have said that Rashad (like Sonnen, Diaz and Frankie) would be getting the shot after coming off a title fight loss but since Rashad is fighting Lil Nog in 2 weeks, he may actually do it after a win. If he beats Lil Nog impressively, and goes on the mic to challenge Anderson, I think UFC will make it happen.
and even though Weidman is clearly the top contender to that belt, it would be nice for him to get a fight in coming off an injury. The fight with Rockhold would do that.
