As per usual, Bisping won his last fight against a somewhat decent opponent earning him a step up in competition against a better fighter than him and who will beat him.

Eh. I'd like to Bisping get the upset, don't see it happening but yeah. Rockhold has come off horrible from this press tour.

A man got hit with a shoot pro wrestling super kick and lost as a result. I dunno how to feel about that.

Bisping is a decent fighter, but every time he's had one of these fights against a legit top 5 guy he's come up short.

Yup.  I'd say we're finally done with Bisping, but the UFC will probably repeat the same routine all over again. Interesting fact: everyone Bisping has ever beat in the Octagon outside of Cung Le and Dan Miller are no longer in the organization.

Can this be proven?  He hasn't actually headlined a card in the UK in years.

Yes, if you've followed UFC since 2006. You don't have to headline to make people money. Shit, Conor McGregor is proof positive of that.
