Because I think it's in the UFC's best interest to protect both fighters. Bisping is their UK poster boy and a loss to a not-so-experienced 170er would be devastating for his image... Demarques is a TUF runner up, they need to build his confidence and him to reach his full potential before throwing him to the wolfes.
This bout can't happen now, it wouldn't make sense imo... And if it was to take place in several months like you seem to suggest, people would most likely lose interest in it (see the Serra vs Hughes case, much bigger beef than Mike vs Demarques).
