I think there are 2 obvious choices.

Brian Stann

or

Mark Munoz.

Depending who fits better time wise. I think they both beat him though. He just does not do well against that kind of striking styles. And Mark Munoz ground and pound might be a bit much if he can get Bisping down.

I think a suitable fight would be Bisping/Belfort.
The way he fought tonight, I completely disagree. Especially with a loss to Stann. He was able to control Sonnen against the cage, something I'm sure not very many people have been able to do, if anybody.

I didnt know he was fighting anyone but i did guess he would have someone lined up by now. Which is why i threw Munoz out there also. I think that could be the next number 1 contender match?? The loser fights Palhares in order to give Palhares a shot to move up.

He put on a good performance sure but i think the Style match up is just too much for him. He will do well until well... he doesnt do well. Both guys will win by tko. I would like to see him fight Wanderlei again to see if he has improved fighting people who throw BOMBS and are skilled. Leben can throw bombs but if its not for his rock like chin he certainly wouldnt have gotten very far.


You obviously can have a differing opinion and thats okay.

I just think that history has shown us how Bisping deals with those types of fighters. (Not very well)

Beats me.

Dana said he thought Bisping won the fight, I would think Sonnen would have the title shot.

But, Bisping would still be treated as if he'd won his last fight & have the next contender match with Vitor?

Palhares is an animal, I'd love to see him fight a top 5. I don't think hes done enough to get a contender fight, unfortunately. :x

Well even if Dana thinks that its not like the fight wasnt extremely close. He certainly "SHOULD NOT" treat Bisping as if he won the fight. Especially since Hamill beat him and Bisping still got the win. You can call this Karma even though i think Chael clearly took round 1 and 3. (But thats for a different thread). So Dana has no right treating Bisping as the winner. But Dana dont give a **** what i think so who knows haha.

Palhares is an animal... which is why i think giving him the loser of Munoz vs Bisping is a good idea. It gives him time to get another fight under his belt since if Munoz/Bisping happens it wont be for a little while. And then he can fight the loser of that match. It wouldnt make him a contender if he won BUT it would put him in line to get a contender fight. I think it works out perfect tbh.

Bisping vs. Belfort will be next for sure. Vitor just won a lower top ten type fight and Bisping just lost a top end contender fight. There both right in the middle now and i think it would make a great fight.

HW: Alistair "THE DEMOLITION MAN" Overeem
LHW: Machida - Hendo
MW: Bisping - Vitor - Cung Le
WW: Nick Diaz - Condit
LW: Nate Diaz - Maynard - Thomson
FW: Jose Aldo - Cub - Conor Mcgregor
BW: Miguel Angel Torres - Pickett
FLY: Uncle Creepy

I was going to say Stann but it looks like he already has a fight apparently. Next I'd say Maia but I don't want to see Maia lose again.

Hmm.....I'm going to go with Paul Harris. Paul deserves a step up and Bisping deserves a step down.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Vitor didnt just win a lower top ten fight, he beat a guy that was taking his first MW fight in the UFC. Johnson was not a top ten middle weight.

Bisping vs Munoz makes sense.
