Yes

Oh dear god, I hope not. And I don't see this happening anyway, neither are high enough on the rankings and there are enough contenders ahead of them.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

I hate chael sonne, but he is honestly the 2nd best mw right now and should be next in line.

Sonnen
- Would wrestle**** Bisping to shit.
Okami
- Better than Bisping in every area
Stan
- Would KTFO Bisping
Munoz
- Too strong for Bisping and too good of a wrestler, has heavy hands
Maia
- Would take Bisping's arm home
Belfort
- Would blitz Bisping into oblivion
Weidman
- See 'Okami'

Is a toss up against the following:
Leben
- Lit him up the first time, but Leben seems to be a different fighter now
Wanderlei
- Beat Bisping last time and almost finished him twice. Comes forward and has great striking and cardio.
Palhares
- If the fight goes to the ground it's over, but I doubt it would get there

And beats the following:
Santiago
- Has a weak chin and won't be able to match Bisping's pace
Akiyama
- Granite chin but too slow and telegraphed
Mayhem
- Doesn't have the striking or the jitz necessary to beat Bisping
Miller
- Bad striking, tough, but can't match Bisping's pace

I need to spread more rep around, but your post on the other page was very insightful and well thought out.

This division is stacked just like WW and LHW.

R.I.P. PRIDE FC

Fedor-Shogun-Overeem-Cro Cop-Silva-Gomi-Henderson-Jackson

2014 NPFFL

Jon Jones . Travis Browne . Demian Maia. Cain Velasquez. Fabricio Werdum

Beating a guy who thrashed Leben would warrant a shot at Leben?

WAR CIGANO

lol at all the comments about the winner of sonnen/stann being the next cotender. Stann I can understand but sonnen? hahaha u clowns have jokes..He already had his shot and was finished BY THE CHAMPION. One fight against stann shouldnt catapult him to a title shot, thats dirty pool

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

I respectfully disagree, i don't like chael sonnen but if he beats stann he is easily the 2nd best mw behind silva. Y not give him silva next. He just gonig to beat Bisping or who ever is next in line. I'm a huge anderson silva fan and i want to see a rematch.

If your talking about Stann??? I think you got me mixed up. I clearly said if Stann wins he deserves a shot and if he loses he shouldn't rematch Leben. IS that what your talkking about?
