I'm still not sold the UFC will go forward with this. They're backed into a corner though as Rockhold is just as unknown (if not more than) as Weidman, Belfort got destroyed by Silva too much sooner, and they were riding on Bisping to win and he lost.
I don't think that they were riding too much on the Bisping train. If they were they wouldn't give him the very bad match up in Belfort...
