    Bispings commentary is so biased and one sided. Yes Usman is good but who wants to buy a fight if you know it's going to be one sided. His favoritism is doing no one any good.

    With all due respect Weili didn’t deserve the rematch at all … 1.She wasn’t a dominant champ, she only defended the belt once in a very controversial split decision. 2.She got knocked OUT in the first round in a one sided fight. Now she making excuses everywhere saying that the crowd was booing , that she wasn’t focused because she saw Chris weidmans leg snap … Hope she gets whooped again tbh 🤷‍♂️

    Why does Zhang Weili get an immediate rematch for the title against Rose Namajunas? When Zhang fought Joanna she didn’t give Joanna an immediate rematch and that fight was way closer and also went the distance.. A full 25 minutes that had to be decided by the judges score cards... Now we Come to the last fight where Rose and Zhang meet. 1:15 into the first round Zhang is knocked out by Rose and loses her title belt. She didn’t even last half a round.. Why does she deserve a rematch?

      Neither Usman-Colby II nor Usman-Masvidal II made any sense, either. MMA has very little to do with pure meritocracy, where "the best" --- who's won the most --- getting title shot. It's mostly a reality TV show, an entertainment show that just happens to feature fighting. Carla has 5 in a row, very impressive. Leon Edwards has 9 plus in a row, more impressive.... third best winning streak after Usman and GSP. And, no, the first Usman-Colby fight was NOT a "competitive" fight. One guy clearly got his jaw broken & got within an inch of being KO, if the referee hadn't interfered. Not sure why THAT is more deserving of an immediate rematch (winning one fight over a grandfather in Woodley didn't mean any) than, say, the Rose-Zhang situation where the first kick from Rose just happened to end the match, with zero fighting. Zhang was not just some random fighter picked to fight Rose, with Rose KO her in her first kick. Zhang had, before Rose, had a 21 win streak, including being the champ when she lost to Rose. BTW, if Rose HAD to win as many as Carla, Leon, or others before getting the title shot against Zhang, Rose wouldn't have merited that title fight, either. JJ SHOULD have gotten the immediate rematch, since THAT WAS A COMPETITIVE FIGHT, one where two very good fighters traded blows to the very end, with neither knowing for sure who's going to get the nod from the judges...

    I have no idea why Zhang Weili getting an immediate rematch. Maybe China is asserting its soft power. I feel bad for Rose. I understand with JJ because she was long time SW champion but Zhang only had one defense and she got knocked out in R1. Carla Esparza fight made more sense as Rose lost to her previously and Esparza did all the hard work to become #1 contender. Zhang should've fought someone else and build herself back to be #1 contender. Juatice doesn't really prevail in UFC. It's mostly about numbers.

      @Wildman Samurai It doesn’t matter how handily she was beaten. There’s a reason the rematch has already been signed lol the ufc knows no one else in the division can beat her she’s already ran through them. There’s no other match for these two besides each other. If rose wins it sets her up as probably the goat of the division and if wheli wins it sets up the biggest fight in the divisions history which is the trilogy. You gotta think bigger picture bruh.

    Rose vs Carla 2 and Zhang vs JJ 2 were the correct fights to make. UFC is getting out of touch with their fan base. Zhang didn't deserve an immediate rematch for the title that she only barely defended once.

      Speak for yourself. This is the right move if people want to see the most exciting fights and new faces in the division. Carla is less marketable than those other names and UFC didn't want to risk Rose losing to her a second time because it would eliminate Rose from the title picture. Joanna is an old name who already lost to Rose twice but could wipe out 99% of the new names including Weili. Joanna is out of the title picture as long as Rose is the champ and no contenders should have to go through her to get a shot.
