Leben/Bisping Title shot upon victory? Poll?

I'm wondering, if these two... whoever wins. After a high profile win, will get a shot at Anderson.

I'm well aware that Leben was destroyed by Anderson, but so was Rich and he was back in there one year later, getting pummeled again.

What I'm curious about is not whether you think they deserve it, or whether there are people more deserving, but do you think The UFC will make it happen?

You didn't add a poll bud


And i think Bisping not only deserves a shot but i think he would be the only one to beat Anderson right now.

Neither should at this point, the one more likely though will be Bisping but he needs a few more wins at this weight first to achieve a shot and he is the first to admitt it. So i voted neither, but Dana being Dana you never know and i certainly wouldn't complain but should be at least a year away.

I voted neither- as I firmly believe that Okami deserves the next shot as he was supposed to have this shot before the hand injury. And I do think Okami has the best shot of dethroning Anderson in the division ATM. IMO of course.

What does Bisping do better than Anderson? Or do you think its more of a 'punchers chance'?

This should read: will get a shot at the winner of the Coté/Silva fight.

Never count a fighter out, its MMA after all.

Anderson lost to a flying scissor heel hook and GSP got KO'ed. Both by fighters not even close to having the same skill level.


Now, to answr your question, I think Okami should get the next shot after he recovers from his injury. With a win, Bisping is starting to be deserving, especially if he wins in impressive fashion.

I don't think either deserve a title shot. leben is the #10 MW in my opinion, if bisping wins he is now number 10.

Neither, give them both a couple more fights and let Okami get the next shot.

That's a good point. I'm a predator fan and didn't even think that way. I'd be fine with a moderator changing that.
