Where does Bisping go from here?

I think the UFC needs to finally realize Bisping is not quite a high enough caliber fighter to be their British poster boy as they have spent millions trying to hype him up to be. Bisping needs to go to back of the pack and earn his way back like most other fighters have to do after a big loss like the Belfort fight. Unlike before I would like to see Bisping start by taking on "LEGIT" opponents that are at least ranked 15th or above instead of like before when they had him fight Mayhem Miller. I think Bisping has improved enough now to where he doesn't need the clever perfect matchup fights like Joe Silva has always given him in the past after his big losses. I think Bisping is ready to back up alot of his talk against fighters like Rockhold. I even think it would help his career to take on a fighter like Ronny Markes. I have never been a fan of Bisping in the past mainly because of the garbage that comes out of his mouth. I think my dislike for Bisping started after the disrespect he showed Hendo on TUF and after he threw the water in Demarques Johnsons face. I am willing to give the guy benefit of starting fresh because of what he said to Jon Anik after the fight in middle of cage where he gave Vitor the respect he deserved and vowed he would earn his way back. I don't think the Bisping of old would have acted or said the things he did post fight if he wasn't ready to turn a new leaf at least in earning his way back and showing fans he is fighter and not giving up nor did he sound like he was expecting an easy road back. . Props to Bisping for taking the loss like a man and showing the sportsmanship he did. I'm not saying Bisping won't prove me wrong but i think he has finally realized that fans will cut him some slack when he does his talking in the cage win or lose.
