If there were no fans in England/Philippines, would Bisping and Vera still be in UFC?

i have a feeling these two are still under contract only because of their marketability outside of the states, other than that, they would of been dropped a LONG time ago

what do u think

Bisping is a talented fighter and I think he would be in the UFC regardless. Would he be getting as big of a push like coaching TUF if he wasnt british?

No I dont think so.

Vera on the other hand is iffy. Hes looked pretty bad lately.

Bisping is a classless jerkoff for not giving hammil respect after the british judges stole it from Hammil. I'm so looking forward to seeing Hendo, Maia, Marquardt or any other top tier MW fighter destroy him. As for Vera, I like that guy alot, but he doesn't seem to have that fire in him like before. His fights at LHW have been yawnfests and I'm suprised the UFC re signed him.

Vera would have been cut from the UFC while ago and Bisping would still be in the UFC but wouldn't get so much attention.

I think Vera would still be here. He came in very exciting and I think that is why he has been given so many chances. Bisping I don't know. The only reason I say that though is because of so many of his VISA problems early on getting back into the US. If it wasn't for the fact that they were planning UK shows they may have dumped him because there is no reason to pay for a fighter who can't get to the fight.

Bisping yeah he lost one fight it was a split decsion and he has looked great at MW.

Oh yeah you know the British judges that robbed Hamill one of them was Cecil Peoples, that well know Brit. There was one British judge that night and he awrded all three rounds to Hamill. hamill got screwed no doubt but it was by his own countrymen

He had one one fight where there was a visa problem. He has since been back to the US for fights more than once. Considering he had just won TUF they never would have binned him for that one issue.

Seriously get over it and move on. Hamill was just as disrespectful to Bisping for a year leading up to the fight. So what if Bisping said something stupid in the adrenaline fuelled aftermath of a close fight? He has been nothing but classy since and before it for that matter. If Hamill wasn't deaf none of this would have been blown out of proportion the way it has been.

Also there were two US judges who awarded it to Bisping and one British Judge who awarded it to . . .can you guess. . . That's right Matt Hamill. Please explain how the British judges stole it from Hamill?
