Even though Bisping is only 3 wins away from a title shot, it'll be fun to watch him get KTFO again.

After losing to a top 10 fighter in Tim Kennedy, previously top 5 ranked Bisping (LOL!) is matched up against a guy not even in the top 20.  SHOCKING!!!

Kim vs Lombard is an outstanding match up, the WW division is sick atm... Lawler looked crisp against Jake tonight the Woodley vs Macdonald fight should be sick also + you can match any of those winner against Matt Brown for a #1 contender fight.
