    Looks like Bisping is going to probably retire at home in England on the UFC Fight Night card on March17 providing he gets thru the Gastelum fight ok.Never really been fan of Bisping but he has grown on me a bit the last year or 2.I'm not going to get into the debate on his recent quality of opposition other then to say,he has had a successful career being 1 of the highest paid fighters but will walk away from the sport with plenty of scars and permanent injuries like that right eye to remind him of the wars he was in.When in his prime most of his losses where against drug cheats of some kind,he always seemed to be just short of the elite always 1 fight away of title shot then he would lose the big fight. He finally took advantage of that title shot it seemed he would never get when on 2 weeks notice he won title against huge favourite Luke Rockhold. Theres only couple top Middleweights he hasn't fought,Hopefully in his last fight we get Romero or Weidman who has been talking a lot of **** trying hard to get the fight.

    Great fighter.... If he beats Gastelum then a Weidman or Romero fight might make sense for a swansong, otherwise there's zero reason for him to get massacred in his retirement fight. Personally... Regardless of how the Gastelum fight goes I'd like it to be something competitive. Maybe a Cezar Ferreira, Elias Theodorou, Brad Tavares or Thiago Santos type of opponent.

    Its a shame he couldn't beat GSP,him against Whitaker in Melbourne would have been a huge event and broken the UFC193 attendance record plus from a selfish point of view I would have enjoyed seeing Whitaker beat him live,Aussies love to beat the poms

    Fair play to him, Bisping is a very good fighter & has made the most out of his career

    Great! Can't stand him, he's an utter fake & was the worst champ in UFC history.

    Hopefully he gets to fight Masvidal as his last fight. That'd be epic.

    I bet he doesn't fight some killer in his last fight on home soil. The OBVIOUS fights for him are Romero or Rockhold due to the bad blood but I doubt he fights them. Kudos to him if he does though.

    I'd love a rematch fight for him as a swansong.

    Against Belfort.

    That'd suit Mike to the ground. Another badly faded legend.

    Vitor looks like Jim's dad out of "American Pie"'. He's way past his best.

    Rockhold trilogy or Romero.

    But Vitor has been done for ages. Poor way to go out, IMHO.

    Not for me.

    Belfort is a big name and has a big victory over Bisping. The fight would be action packed with two strikers. Great way to bow out imo.

    Vitor's last hurrah was like 2013, mate. He looks like an AIDS patient.

    Nah I've seen aids patients and they look a lot worse than he does.

    It's the fight I wanna see most anyways.

    The most? Really? Wow.

    I want Bisping to face a LIVE body as his last fight.

    Rockhold, Romero or Masvidal. I'd be over the moon with any of those three.
