Great fight but I don't understand why they aren't doing the Bisping fight. By making Rockhold and Machida fight, you're killing off one guy at the top. The bad blood is already there between Rockhold and Bisping and their fight is infinitely more sellable.

It's because Rockhold is a potential title contender that will destroy Bisping. Rockhold/Machida is the better fight.

I'd love to see Rockhold v Bisping but it never made any sense for Rockhold.  Great for Bisping, but a win for Rockhold would be expected and wouldn't tell us anything about whether he could beat a no.1 contender or Weidman

 

Whereas Rockhold Machida makes sense for both fighters.  Win for either of them and they'd have a case for a title shot or at least a no.1 contender fight.

 

Bisping v CB would be cool.

Machida will own him just as much as Bisping would so it's not a big deal.

I got Rockhold in a sig/AV/username bet over both of those clowns. Anybody who wants it, step up and accept.

I just stopped being a Rockhold fan over his tiger-balls stunt, and I now would love to see him get KTFO. 

 

So I hate to say it, but it just seems like Rockhold has momentum and Machida is kinda stalled.  I think that will be the difference. If Machida was more on his game and thus more aggressive -- like he was in spurts vs. Weidman -- I'd probably pick him.  As it is, I think Rockhold comes out on top.

Ballhold/Macheater would be a cool fight. Hard to call a winner.

Doubt Ballhold has fought anyone as fast as Macheater, but he's on a nice roll lately.

I'd like to see this fight happen but it might make more sense to have Macheater fight the loser of Jac/Gaygard and Ballhold fight the winner.

Well if he cant get to #1 contender spot why help him get there? I think its stupid to give them easier fights to get to the champ when they cannot beat most top 5's
