    Why can't we get Bisping vs Rockhold 3?

    Why not? ROckhold just fought the guy that Bisping had nightmares about and lost. ROckhold gets KO'd and Bisping gets KO"d.

    They have a nasty history and Bisping owes Rockhold a rematch big time after taking that fight on short notice.


    I'd bet every dollar in my pocket that Bisping is way to scared to even be in the same room as Luke though.

    I agree 100%. I called for this fight right after Rockhold got KTFO Sat. No way in hell Bisping takes the fight though

    Yea....no way Bisping takes this fight, he has just been finished twice in last 2 fights...I'm sure he's thinking the Machida fight will be a little more up his alley on his way out.

    I think Machida makes more sense, purely as it's 2 guys on their way out of the sport. The Rockhold fight does make sense too, but like you guys, I doubt Bisping takes the fight.

    Of course not. You "never" want Bisping in any fight that doesn't look like a guaranteed win for him. He has no history with boring ass irrelevant Machida. You can't even say that with a straight face. Machida shouldn't even be on the radar. Bisping owes a rematch to Rockhold after talking so much shit and then running when he had no business getting a title shot in the first place. ROckhold gave him that, and then Bis fucked up the entire division for almost two years until GSP stepped in to save the division and humiliated him. Him and Rockhold have unfinished business, and the fans would benefit from the pre fight antics. No one gives two shits about any pre fight hype stuff with Machida involved who might as well be a fucking mute at this point.

    I agree Machida and Bisping is a boring ass fight that virtually no one really cares about, but I don't see Michael getting into the cage that could seriously fuck him up

    As bad as Machida vs Bisping sounds, this fight would make sense right now. But, let's not pretend Bisping owes Rockhold anything. Doesn't owe him shit, and it's Bispings last fight. Let him do whatever fuck he wants for last fight, every fighter (Who isn't a champ at that time) should be allowed to choose their last fight within reason imo.

    Seriously dude, read my post. Where did I say Rockhold doesn't make sense?

    Your way of shooting it down was by saying that Machida makes more sense. A fight with Machida does nothing, and you're also aware at how many years now that Bisping has sworn that he'd never fight anyone that got popped for PED's and all of that crap. Now all of a sudden he's okay with that, despite the gazillion times he's said that in the past? Bisping dug a major hole for himself by log jamming that division, and yeah he owes to a few fighters after spewing venom at them the entire time. He'd have never touched that strap if Rockhold had refused to fight him when he didn't deserve a title fight. Settle the beef. It's a legitimate beef. Bisping knocked him out before, and fans would love to see that fight more than most match ups you could even discuss around the entire UFC. Make your last fight count Bisping.
