This was the likely outcome that I think most of us expected.

Tough loss for Bisping, but I'm glad because if Vitor did this to him, Anderson would have put a bigger hurt on him.

The MW division is basically:
Anderson
........
........
Vitor
........
........
........
Sonnen/Weidman

I hope I'm not the only one thinking this, but I could definitely go for a Silva/Belfort II or a Jones vs. Belfort II.

Vitor on his game is just scary, plus seeing him bring out his JJ against Jones was awesome. Either fight, the fans win!

This is about right, Bisping's a low end top ten guy at best, around the same place as Belcher is, they should fight since both lost their last fight.

I think Vitor should follow Chael back into the LHW at his original weight class AFTER he fights Lombard. If Lombard somehow wins then he gets the shot. Not too sold on a Vitor title fight at MW, but definitely at LHW as he came the closest to actually finishing the fight. His striking let em down though. I mean if he's willing to pull guard then he should just go for broke. He can't HEAD HUNT all the time especially against the LHW title holder, he's gotta go to the body; left hook/cross = perfect liver shots.

I do agree Chael has a 50% chance if not more to beat Vitor. He simply does not do well against wrestlers who clinch, grind, and dirty box em. I saw the very first fight on PPV and was absolutely crushed when Randy beat em. I was like how is it possible an old balding wrestler outbox em. That's when he (Vitor) went into a bit of a freefall.

Kinda glad they didn't match up Wandy or Cung vs Vitor cuz he's pretty much the same as he was in 1997. Less bulkier, speed is approximately the same, still the same explosiveness. IMAGINE, if he could keep that up for all five rounds and more importantly had his head straight.

Suppose every fighter has weaknesses and strengths as cliched as it is. I thought Bisping got his range down and did very good in the first. He wasn't scared to engage, dodged well, landed his 1+2 combos, and actually stalked Vitor at times. I actually thought it might last a few more rounds. But as predicted 2nd round tko by The Phenom.

Blackzillians is a huge jump for Vitor.

185 - Vitor vs Lombard is the only fight that makes sense

205 - Chael, Gegard, Lyoto, Hendo rematch, and actually Shogun. I don't think they ever fought before amazingly enough.

I kinda feel for Bisping actually. Six years and he still hasn't got his title shot.

I think there are plenty of good fights for him at 205.

Not sure if Lombard is the "only" fight that makes sense. Lombard is fighting Okami.

Vitor-Rockhold if Vitor wants to fight at 185 again.

I think Bisping is like a 5 or 6 guy. I think he's better than Okami and Belcher but is just never going to beat the top tier.

I thought about all the 185 match ups for Vitor and it all comes to the same conclusion. He's going to blitz them and take out another contender kinda like Rich Franklin before. So that's why I dismissed Luke although he might do well.

For me the only 185 match up I want to see is Lombard vs Vitor. Okami isn't as fun of a match up.

So yah I support Vitor's move up to 205 to make a title run there.

All sorts of fun match ups north of MW.

I wouldn't mind Rockhold getting KTFO. He is the supposed SF champ. He should ask for top 5 fights not Consta. He is basically a Bisping sort of fighter with more kicks, maybe less wrestling. That fight last night was a pick'em basically on the books....and it was in Brazil. So I see no reason why Rockhold wouldn't get some love from some people. A lot of people picked Bisping last night.

More fights at 205 that would be nice. Would like to see him vs. Rashad after he beats Lil Nog. Or Tex.
