Being an MMA fan is making me bipolar.
From sadness just days ago when Weidman announced he would not be fighting at 199, and now I can't control my excitement... Michael Bisping is replacing him.
UFC President Dana White announced my dream matchup this morning on SportsCenter. Bisping deserves a title shot, especially after his last fight where he and Anderson Silva put on easily one of the top 10 UFC fights of all time, which ironically most people never saw because it was streamed exclusively on Fight Pass.
He's on a three fight win streak BUT his last loss comes at the hands of the current champ ... Rockhold.
But that was almost two years ago and we all know that anything can happen inside that Octagon. I spoke with Bisping's coach, Brady Fink, exclusively today and he said that Bisping is in Toronto filming a movie, but will be back Friday.
"We have been saying this game is like life," Fink said. "If you want to get ahead sometimes you gotta roll the dice."
Rockhold doesn't seem worried by this match-up as evident by his Twitter account.
The pair will face off in Los Angeles on June 4 at UFC 199 for the middleweight title.
