Everyone in top 5 would beat Bisping unless they underestimate like Rockhold did.

True.

This fight really opened up the rest of the division as well. Would like to see Bisping fight Romero next.

so anderson silva failed a USADA test

and now

Michael Bisping vs. Kelvin Gastelum targeted as new UFC Shanghai main event

3 weeks after getting knocked down and choked unconscious :fp:

disgraceful that they are letting him fight.

It's in China and mma is still in it's infancy there (about the level of UFC 20-30s), I didn't even know there is a AC there. I wonder who is sanctioning this event.

I'm disappointed with the UFC for allowing him to fight.

they're desperate for a fight for the december 30 card, so they're booking t-wood vs nate diaz

what an awful fight...t-wood is just going to take him down at will for 5 rounds

Indeed, that fight is a mockery. They kind of screwed themselves over with booking Robbie against RDA.

They should just give the title shot to Darren Till. Would be a easy fight to sell, and has the potential to actually be good.

Is it set? Last I heard Diaz camp hasnt accepted

Edit:

Diaz asked for 15m for this fight :lol:

I don't dislike Nate (or Nick), and am actually a fan of theirs. But it's clear their heads are no longer in the "game" in a sense that they want to better themselves and close up their holes. Despite beating McGregor, Nate is actually not as good as many people and the UFC hype machine make him out to be. He is a lanky volume puncher who is also great at jiu-jitsu. He really hasn't improved on his wrestling to make himself a more imposing fighter. At this point, he just wants to milk the hype he got from McGregor fights and get big paydays.

The fact of the matter is, McGregor's brash yet clever trashtalk are what people tune in for, not Nate's simple "fuck you motherfucker". I doubt he would get another big payday unless he fights McGregor again. The fact that he is even in consideration for a title fight shows just how fucked the UFC title picture is at the moment. :fp:

Ben Askren smashed a much smaller Aoki and goes into retirement.

There will always be “what ifs”. Superb grappler with great control, his style is probably not as appreciated by the “modern” fans. I truly think he can give a lot of the UFC WWs a tough time

agreed

seems like it's going to be cyborg holm for the december 30th main event...I have to say I'm more interested in that than holloway aldo 2

UFC just doesn't have any momentum, hopefully by next year we get to see mcgregor vs tony, miocic vs cain and DJ vs TJ

I think he'll end up at bellator and fight rory for the WW title.

bisping and gastelum is on in a couple of hours, I just can't see bisping winning this after coming back from a hard loss 3 weeks later.

Didn't Bisping get his butt whooped like 2 weeks ago? Why is he fighting today?

Poor Bisping, really shouldn’t have taken this fight.

Other than that, Muslim Salihov losing was kind of a surprise. He has legendary status in the Chinese Sanda world and this was supposed to be his big break.

Really happy for Wang Guan. One of China’s best prospects

really stupid of him to take this fight other than monetary gains, apparently he's getting a big payday for filling in.

To be fair though, I think the result would be the same even if this fight was later down the line

I think he wanted to try to hurry and redeem himself. That didn't work out.

Looking forward to the Bellator heavyweight tournament, much prefer Scott Coker to Dana

I put money on Aldo, his odds were too good to pass on

Decent card

Very entertaining card overall, did not disappoint. I hoped for a longer fight between Overeem and Nganou but what can you do when a guy punches hard enough to tear through time and space :lol:

Alvarez vs Gaedgje was a fucking fight. Amazing leg kicks, amazing body punches, amazing finish!

Then how about that left hook from Ngannou!!! The guy hits like a fucking tank :o

And to top it off, what a championship fight. Max is simply awesome!

Alvarez v Gaethje was my favorite fight yesterday. They fucked up each other real nice for 3 rounds :thumbsup:

Medeiros v Oliveira prelims fight was also pretty entertaining and bloody.
