Luke Rockhold deserves to get the next shot at the title.

Not based on who he beat or where he's ranked... I base it solely on my opinion that I think he's the only person in the division who can beat Chris Weidman.

That would be a awesome fight and could possibly be a classic.

I didn't see the fight with Mikey, but I did see the video of the 2nd round and the finish.

That puts a hurting on Mikey's standing in the Middleweight division... it's beginning to look like Mikey just might not have deserved that #4 ranking that he climbed to a while back.

Rockhold was ranked #5 in the UFC and Mikey was ranked #9 going into this fight, so I don't see how the outcome of this fight impacts either man in the UFC rankings... but you never know with the media, maybe they want the Weidman vs. Rockhold fight too.

Maybe Mikey to 10 or 11, and Luke stays at 5 ?

Current UFC Middleweight Rankings :

1 Anderson Silva
2 Jacare Souza
3 Vitor Belfort
4 Lyoto Machida
5 Luke Rockhold
6 Yoel Romero
7 Tim Kennedy
8 Gegard Mousasi
9 Michael Bisping
10 CB Dollaway
11 Thales Leites
12 Costas Philippou
13 Tim Boetsch
14 Mark Munoz
15 Brad Tavares
