    Wait. What?

    So we’re going to have an interim interim champ?

    I know that GSp was stripped and the interim champ moved to champ, but WTF?

    We’re talking 2+ years since the actual MW champion defended the belt against a worthy, ranked, opponent (Weidman v Rockhold). Dear lord this division has become an absolute train wreck.

    Stripped? Or relinquished?

    Not sure who to root for. I dislike them both. I guess Luke. I guess I dislike him less.

    I'm 100% rooting for Yoel. The old guy coming off a loss versus the young, super arrogant former champ. Rooting for Yoel is MMA ya bum!

    Oh suuuure, bring up the unsportmanlike conduct and possible bigotry. Whiner.

    Anyhow, I want to do more of these forum bets. You want to do a bet on the fight? I think Yoel should be an underdog, but I'll happily take him.

    I haven’t done a bet since @Trodden made me wear that (was it frank trigg in a thong) sig at News. I’d be up for a bet and I’ll take Luke. Probably not a sig bet since I still have PTSD from that. What you thinking?

    So both the top contenders in the division are .500 in their last 2 fights and one of them actually lost his last fight. There's no need for a belt to be on the line. Just have a 4 man tournament and let them fight it out until the champ is ready.

    he was never stripped of any belt. he was man enough to relinquish it when he knew he couldn't defend it. instead of just sit there and hold up the division.

    he was sick and kept puking during camp because he had to keep forcing the weight gain. instead of pull out and complain, he fought.

    Which his team explains here:

    Yet, instead of getting any credit for being sick through the entire camp, or for missing 1/3 of it completely, the haters make up stupid stories that have no basis in reality, or truth.

    that's the problem with the haters. they can't stick to facts that are easy to back up. They just make up stupid things that never happened and lose all credibility with the argument

    the truth is

    • Bisping's title defense was a joke. He was coddled to hold it just like he was coddled most of his career.
    • GSP should have never been allowed to come back for a title fight. but to hold with the UFC's typical 'tickets first' model, they once again allowed stupid shit
