After stating that Yoel Romero would meet Bisping next and not Georges St-Pierre, White recently told ESPN that if Bisping is unable to fight soon, they’ll put together an interim title fight

 

And, sorry Luke Rockhold, you are not in that one either.

 

“We’re trying to put together that Bisping-Romero fight,” White said. “If (Bisping) can’t fight this summer, we’ll probably create an interim title between Romero and Robert Whittaker.”

 

Do we really need another one of these?

 

Also an interesting question to pose is why Robert Whittaker over Gegard Mousasi? Does this mean the ufc doesn't expect Mousasi to re-sign?

Once the UFC realized how much more casuals buy into PPVs because they see a belt, they quickly tried to slap on an interim belt on any #1 contender fight in the division

 

Bisping is fine to fight GSP but not Yoel in the summer, something is terribly wrong with that

Bubba see! This is why we call Bisping a duck. He has said several times he wanted to fight in July, Summer now that GSP falls out and it's Roidmero he might not be readybcome the **** on.

Also Whittaker beat Jacare who was obviously right at the top with Romero.

 

I would rank him over Moose - but I think Moose would beat him,

Bisping is no champ.

 

He's running.

Smart move. But what happens to Bisping? Does he fight the interim champ at the end of the year or GSP?

This could get screwy

I have mixed feelings about this announcement.not a done deal yet but On one part romero deserves a title shot period. One the other hand he needs to fight soon so this is best case scenario since bisping is acting gay.

This is a great opportunity for Whittaker.

I've seen a couple other people mention moose being in the conversation and I haven't the foggiest idea why. Look at the winning streak of both Romero and Whittaker, there is absolutely no question they are #1 and 2.

What the hell has Moose done in the ufc to even warrant being in the conversation among them now?

Agreed, Moose is on a 5 fight winning streak but not impressed with any of those wins....Needs to fight someone like Rockhold and beat him convincingly to get closer to the top 3 (bisping(lol), whittaker and obv Romero)

I have no more comments about the legit mess that MW has become.

 

However, I will happily watch Romero vs Whittaker as the REAL MW TITLE FIGHT because both guys would beat the current champ (sorry Bubba).

 

Bisping vs GSP is for the interim belt on my books.

Was waiting for this one.

So I think we are all pretty much in agreement here that fight is going to be changed to a No Contest after the appeal. Has anyone actually gotten a title shot coming off of a no contest before? Let alone for a fight they were clearly losing.

Whittaker and Romero are both objectively ahead of Moussasi. That's a fact.

I'm just going to start responding to everything with Big Lebowski gifs.  Maybe some circle jerk memes here and there.

 

I like how MW interim title thread became Lebowski quotes thread.
