As he was able to capture the middleweight championship in the later years of his career, it may be possible for Bisping to regain the belt, despite his plans on retiring in a few months.

Bisping is going to be entering his retirement bout on a two fight losing skid, dropping fights to former UFC Middleweight/Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre and TUF champion Kelvin Gastelum.

This marked Bisping's second brutal stoppage loss in November.

It should be noted that the three week turnaround was the shortest of Bisping's career and the first time in that he has lost back-to-back fights. The loss to Swanson ended a 12-fight winning streak for Choi, who looks to start anew at UFC Fight Night 124.

There's no doubt Bisping will go down as one of the most legendary fighters to compete in the UFC.

Bisping has gone on record by stating that he would like to have his final fight in London.

Johnson, 33, is now enjoying a three fight win streak after losing his octagon debut, including a TKO win in his las bout over Adriano Martins at UFC 215 in September. Ironically, the promotion is slated to return to England on March 17 for UFC Fight Night 127 at The O2 Arena, which is about six weeks away. The UFC has not yet officially acknowledged the matchup as of this writing.
