O man I think you should've added 'or retire' for gsp. Whitaker would absolutely murder him.

I agree but that's the price you pay if you want to keep the belt. As much as I'd like to see a Middleweight tournament similar to the one they did for the vacate Flyweight belt I'd be more annoyed if the guy just came back to win the belt and then retire. Whittaker is at least close to his size. GSP might think he has a good enough chance to win that fight.

Out of everyone, why Souza for Bisping?
Romero makes waaaaay more sense.
If I was Masvidal, I'd try to get a Bisping fight too at middleweight for shits and giggles.

I don't see Bisping fighting a top 15 guy. I imagine he takes on some schlub like Johnny Hendricks or Trevor Smith to get an easy win and then he retires.

Machida would be decent too if he wants to duck the Romero beef & the top 15.

Because they're both top 5 Middleweights coming off losses and aren't booked. Seemed like a logical matchup to me. Romero would be fine too. I don't think Bisping would agree to that fight without a belt wrapped around his waist though. He thinks Romero is a steroid user. He's been very vocal about that.

Bisping vs Romero is the fight to make. With all their back and forth over this past year, it’s a fight that will sell well and one many would want to see. March 17, 2018 UFC goes to London, England with a Fight Night and that’s the fight that should headline it.

I know many think Bisping will avoid that fight but if it’s offered to him I think he’ll accept. I don’t remember him being a guy who turns down fights that are offered. He genuinely dislikes Romero, or at least they have genuine beef, so if he got sent a contract to fight him in England I’m sure Bisping would sign it.

I like the list, a few changes i would include are TJ vs Rivera if Rivera wins. But if Cruz wins have MM vs TJ.

And Joanna as much as I enjoyed her getting Ko'd or her tapping she deserves a rematch because of her prior dominance.

Vick vs Poirier/Pettis. Its time for Vick to get his wish and Headline a Fight Night. He's seriously underrated despite his impressive record.

I also like Bisping vs Jacare or Romero. Preferably Romero. But i could see him and Machida going at it in London in the first quarter of 2018.

Costa vs Tavares or even Brunson. Preferably Brunson since Brunson talked that crap of Costa being on PED's. Very winnable fight for Costa since Brunson has turned around from a straight wrestler to a striker. That chin up could get clip against the Powerhouse.

I like Ramos vs Kelleher and i think Ramos will tap him.
