Bisping has been a villain of sorts since first showing up in the UFC but even his biggest detractors are hoping he’ll make a full recovery after suffering a detached retina while training for an October match-up with Mark Munoz. Based on the prognosis, Bisping has to avoid contact with the eye until early 2014 and should be back in action in six months or so. It’s one thing when talking about a broken bone or torn ligament but something as sensitive as an eye is a different story altogether. Hopefully he ultimately overcomes an injury a handful of his peers have endured, showing back up as strong as ever when he takes to the Octagon next year.
Though the recent shift in strategy around these parts has been difficult, rest assured the importance of the 5 OZ community hasn’t been forgotten or their plethora of thought-provoking opinions either. From here on out, the 10-Point Must will make a weekly appearance where I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from the future of a few fighters to some recently-booked rumbles to the tragic death of Leandro Souza.
