Ah. I feel satisfied now. If Rockhold and Bisping would’ve gone to a decision, it’s like Fight Night 55 just wouldn’t have mattered. We were chasing an entire card of finishes, and if the main event didn’t deliver to make us go 11/11, well, I dunno. The ripples would’ve been felt in the middleweight division, but the satisfaction just wouldn’t have been there.
Thanks Luke Rockhold. Thanks for basically outclassing Michael Bisping for the better part of seven minutes. Thanks for the beautiful head kick that knocked down Bisping and set up your guillotine. It was a brilliant performance, and now Luke Rockhold can’t be denied. Dude needs to fight for the belt now. Who the hell knows what’s happening with Vitor Belfort, so be prepared Luke. It is unavoidable, it is your destinyyyyyy.

After the fight they gave each other props, embraced and said the beef was real, and part of the business. Hmph.
