What would you like to see UFC do with Jacare Souza now that Luke Rockhold is out of Fight Night on Nov. 27? What is your top option, what are some secondary options, and what do you hope they don’t do?

This is Michael Bisping’s opportunity to legitimize his title reign by fighting Ronaldo Souza. The fight should be moved to UFC 206, which takes place in Toronto, Canada on Dec. 10. Unfortunately, all Bisping has been doing is campaigning for fights against Georges St. Pierre or Nick Diaz. For Michael Bisping it makes sense for him to want a big money fight against either Diaz or GSP, but the UFC needs to do the right thing and book Bisping vs. Souza. With Chris Weidman and Yoel Romero already booked for UFC 205, the unlikelihood of GSP returning and the fact that Nick Diaz hasn’t won a fight since he beat B.J. Penn back in 2011, I don’t see any other options for the UFC.
