We're just days away from UFC 199 now. Michael Bisping appears to have done everything one human can possibly be expected to do taking a fight on incredibly short notice. Luke Rockhold, for his part, appears to be confident of a finish whether it's Bisping or original opponent Chris Weidman, going so far to say that Bisping is just as tough of a fight. In the co-main event, Urijah Faber and Dominick Cruz are back to their old game, but one wonders just what can be expected of their third fight. One also wonders what happens to Faber's legacy if he loses his fourth title fight.

We're also just off the heels of UFC Fight Night 88 where Cody Garbrandt bulldozed Thomas Almeida to make major climbs up the bantamweight ladder. He wants a fight with Bryan Caraway, although the latter doesn't appear particularly interested at this point. Still, given the co-main event of UFC 199, the bantamweight division stakes are high and the weight category has never been more interesting.

Truth be told, Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz are also still talking to the media about what happened in their fight, what will happen in their next fight, who would beat Floyd Mayweather and more.
