Note to MMA Weekly writer and editor...the proper word is "piques".



Exactly. Got to keep the grammar correct

While this may be an exciting fight it isn't really in Bisping's best interest in my opinion. This fight makes sense for Franklin and for the fans but I don't think it makes any sense from Bisping's point of view.




Only way it makes sense for Bisping is if the UFC gives him a title shot with a win. That is highly unrealistic though.

I think Bisping will take the fight if offered it and add a good 'name' to his record.

Franklin should only fight dudes in the Franklin weight class (190ish). When MWs get too old to cut weight they end up in Franklin's class. So the only real options for him are Hendo, Wand, Chael, and Cung Le.

I'd love to see Hector v Bisping but it looks like Hector is headed to WW. I'd like to see Okami v Bisping but then Bisping would never get his title fight and I think we'd all love to see Andy style on Bisping.

Bisping would win rounds against Anderson imo. I think he would get KTFO eventually, but he would win rounds.

You're bonkers dude! Bisping is great at winning rounds but he'd be lucky just to hit Andy.
