Default Bisping vs Belfort for a title shot, Mayhem vs Cung for loser gets cut?

That'd be my picks for this.

Sonnen and Munoz will fight for the right to fight Silva, so the only guy above Bisping in the rankings who is still viable is probably Belfort.

Bisping vs Belfort around April for the next shot after the Sonnen/Munoz winner would be a good, exciting, relevant fight I think.

Mayhem looked awful, so may as well give him Cung, who didn't look as bad as Mayhem did but was still so far short of what it takes to make it in the UFC that he probably deserves to be pitted against another recent loser in a shape-up-or-ship-out fight.

I'd back Belfort and Cung to win, most probably. I like Mayhem as a fighter but he looked truly terrible. How a professional athlete can have such despicable cardio will forever be a mystery to me. Even coming off such a long lay-off, that was bizarre for a guy who is only 30 years old and didn't seem to be carrying much (if any) excess weight. And Belfort will smash Bisping simply because he's a much better striker and a much better fighter.

Luckily for Bisping, Sonnen vs Munoz has already been announced and confirmed.

Has it? I've been out of the loop the last few weeks, not paying too much attention.

If so... damn. Just... damn. The dozens of Sonnen interviews by themselves would probably have been worth the price of admission given his target (Bisping).

Wanderlei - Bisping 2

Sonnen - Belfort (IMHO right now these are the only 2 worthy of a title shot)

Munoz - Belcher

I dont like Sonnen Munoz purely based on style's

I think Wandy vs Bisping II would be a bit of a slap in the face for Bisping tbh. Wandy got decimated in 30secs by Leben and would probably have been cut had he lost to Cung. Bisping is now 4-0 in his last 4 and should be in the discussion for next title shot after Sonnen-Munoz winner gets his crack. A guy in the title picture shouldn't really be facing a guy who's just saved his ass.

bisping doesn't have the power to hurt vitor. Dan henderson and chuck liddell couldn't knockout vitor. Both are bigger puncher than bisping.
