She appreciates his punching.

Should face the winner of Brunson/Moose.  Not in any rush to see Whittaker point-fight to another win.  Why doesn't he try to finish fights any more?

But not this one. It will crash very soon indeed. I like his attitude but he's too wild and small for MW. Hespect to him for going up not down though.

Smh head. There's just no pleasing you. Methodically picked hall apart. Calm in the fire vs Brunson. There's no tools anyone in the top 5 has that those two together don't have.

Plus that win makes him top 5.

My view of Whittaker is not an emotional one; it has nothing to do with pleasing me.

 

Rockhold, Jacare, Weidman and Romero are all absolute monsters, who would present him with a size challenge he has yet to face.  Moose has better striking than anyone he's faced yet.

 

I'm not saying he has no chance against them.  I'm merely saying that beating Brunson, whilst highly impressive, does not mean you will beat any of those top 5.

 

He's done way better than I thought; i still think his size means he will fall short against the absolute elite in the division.

 

I will not mind being proved wrong again though.

So it's

(Bisping)
Romero
Jacare
Luke
Moose
Rob

He has the best TDD in the division, amazingly durable and chin of granite. arguably some of the best hands. Better than all but Moose in that list. TDD is off the charts.

Who out of that list can stand and bang with Rob? Luke probably seems to be the only real concern in that list, but if Bisping TKO'd him. Rob can absolutely catch him.

Jacare & Romero both get stuffed takedowns, gas and picked apart on the feet all day.

I think Moose vs Rob for #1 contender which is also the most dangerous fight for them both atm

I don't want to provoke you in the idea of Bisping vs Rob but that is a horrible, nightmare of a matchup for the champ imo opinion

longest winning streak in the division. He has to be moving to 5. Anderson has done SFA and Weidman just got his skull caved in. I'd be very surprised if Rob doesn't move to 5 in the next couple of days

Weidman has lost to the current number 1.  Just as 12er implies that when you beat someone below you, you don't move up the rankings, likewise, when you lose to someone ranked above you, you don't move down the rankings.

 

I'm going to challenge you on this best TDD thing.  This sounds like a fightmetric stat, and indeed he has 93% TDD, which is highly impressive.  

Firstly though, Brunson has 100% TDD

Secondly, Whittaker has not fought TD-heavy fighters.  His last 5 opponents have TD accuracy of 34%, 41%, 34%, 32% and 35% respectively.  In fact, if you look at those opponents last 3 fights (excluding against Whittaker), they have 6 TD's between them out of 15 fights.

 

Compare those numbers with Weidman @ 49%, Rockhold @ 40% and Jacare @ 44%, and it's fair to say that his TDD has not been tested by the very best.

 

I ain't hating homie, but you've got to agree that his greatest tests lie ahead of him, not behind him.  Weidman/Rockhold/Jacare will all have a much better chance of getting him to the ground than Brunson, Hall and Hester....

Aaaagh, no!! It's only sentimentality holding Silva in the top 5, and thus muddying the rankings.  Dude hasn't won a fight at MW for over 4 years.  He should not be ranked above Whittaker at this point.

 

I'd have him fight Moose.  Two guys coming off a win.  Meanwhile Bisping fights Romero, and Rockhold fights Souza.  Winner of Rockhold/Souza gets the next shot, winner of Moose/Whittaker gets the one after that.  

Weidman will need two wins at least to get a crack at the belt.

 

Silva/Belfort should be taken out of the picture completely.  They just confuse things.

I'm not suggesting he fights Jacare.  He should fight Moose who is 5.

 

Silva should NOT be ranked 6.  He has no MW wins in 4 years.  Time to retire gracefully.

Always been a big fan of Whittaker. He seems like a good guy and is very fun to watch. Have to respect him for moving up in weight too, and finding success there.

He has definitely earned himself a big fight next. Problem is that while MW is probably the most interesting division now, it is also the most confusing and up in the air.

Realistically robbie is 2 wins away from a title shot. He's looking at a potential match up with Moose possibly? Great fight but not really fair to Gégard considering he is probably only 1 big win away from a title shot and no you cannot get one off of beating whittaker. Not to mention moose has been calling out luke a lot lately.

Same situation with jacare and rockhold. Both are 1 win away from a title shot and beating robbie will not count towards that. This leaves Anderson, and Weidman.

Same situation with jacare and rockhold. Both are 1 win away from a title shot and beating robbie will not count towards that. This leaves Anderson, and Weidman.

What do you think of my plan mate?

 

Winner of Rockhold/Jacare gets the next title shot.  Winner of Moose/Whittaker gets the one after that.

This is assuming that Romero is getting the very next title shot already right?


So firstly if it is indeed a rematch of Luke and Jacare coming up next(which I prefer) then yes absolutely that winner will face the Romero/bisping winner afterwards.

However Moose has been very vocal about fighting Luke next so if that happens instead then obviously tough luck for jacare.

K so let's assume Romero/Bisping winner faces the hypothetical Luke/Jacare 2 winner next. Then let's also pretend that in the meantime Moose/Whittaker is made. Should the winner of that get the next title shot after? No absolutely not.

MW is FAR too crowded at the top right now for anybody to get a title shot without beating a single one of the 4 Horsemen (Romero, Weidman, Luke, Jacare). Period.

Say Whittaker beats Moose next well great, but then he would also need to beat a 4 Horsemen first before getting that title shot. A very tall task I don't believe robbie can handle as much as I like him.

Interesting.  It is damm crowded up there.

 

The one thing I think Whittaker has got on his side is time - dude's the youngest top ten MW by far.  Moose is the next youngest, so maybe there is no need to rush either into a title shot.

MW gives me a damn headache sometimes but is the most intriguing division by far right now imo.

Isn't Whittaker only 25? Yeah he has all the time in the world. He might as well just hang back and keep low while things get sorted out. Maybe even go for the Kennedy/kelvin winner next haha.

Yep, he is indeed 25, plus he's only fought at MW 5 times.  There's really no rush.  In 3 years time he'll be a much better fighter.  Romero OTOH will be 42, Jacare will be 39, even Rockhold and Weidman will be in their mid-30's.  Only Moose is kinda youthful but he's got a lot more fight mileage.

Lol, Weidman hasn't beat anyone in the "4 Horsemen", but he has had his face beat in by two of them. Bisbing has more of a right to that spot than Weidman. He shouldn't be top 5 after his last two fights.

Not sure if serious. I will humour your troll attempt regardless.

Michael Bisping has 7 losses including one to CHAEL SONNEN. he also just got approximately 88.7 years taken off his life by a 47 year old man.

Weidman went 13-0 with 3 title defenses to start his career including a knockout win over Prime Anderson whom many thought was the GOAT and was the #1 best striker in the ufc at the time. He also knocked out Anderson again in the rematch, and vitor belfort and OUT STRUCK lyoto machida 4 rounds. Let's be real he was injured for the rockhold fight and was STILL winning that up until the stupidest spin kick ever while gassed which cost him the fight. He was also beating Romero until he shot for the most telegraphed takedown in the history of the ufc that was completely unnecessary.

Weidman is a truly Great fighter who has just made 2 monumentally stupid decisions in his last 2 fights that cost him 2 losses. He still has accomplished much more than bisping has in HALF as many pro fights and at least 5 less losses.

Weidman would probably be a 4 to 1 favorite if him and bisping were matched up today. Now sit the **** down and shut up. Just like daddy says.

Foglet, grown men don't refer to themselves as Daddy to other men. You're r a snatch who stuck his foot in his mouth and welched so I guess this is expected from you. Weidcan is a snatch and he cries like a snatch. Luke was never losing that fight. The Romero fight was pretty close to call but Romero WON by leaving the snatches brains on the canvas. He beat Anderson once(not his prime, it was his IDGAF phase), then beat him again in his IDGAF phase. Anderson stopped giving a **** before Maia. Snatch is overrated and has been exposed. I can't wait till tomorrow and I post the pic of that stupid snatch bloodier then a menstrual cycle
