"I beat Yoel, I get Bisping, that's an easy day," Weidman said. "He's a tough guy, he showed he's tough without a doubt but it might be one of my easiest fights I've had in years to get that fight with Bisping."

As for Bisping himself, he is coming off of a controversial decision victory over the now retired Dan Henderson at UFC 204. Bisping was able to retain his title in front of his fellow countrymen at that event. Weidman, Romero, Luke Rockhold and Jacare Souza are all virtually 'auditioning' for an upcoming title fight.

UFC 205 will be taking place on Saturday, November 12th from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York with Eddie Alvarez and Conor McGregor in the main event.
