MMA: UFC 204-Bisping vs Henderson Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports

File this under the, "What the?" category.

For whatever reason, current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight champion Tyron Woodley challenged Middleweight king, Michael Bisping, to a catchweight of 180 pounds in 2017.

Surprisingly, "The Count" accepted, as evidence by this video post on his Instagram page.

Woodley just won’t let up in his search for a big-money fight. But can you blame him?

Of course, this can, and will most likely be vetoed by the UFC higher-ups, as both "The Count" and "The Chosen One" both have theirs hands full in their own division, as Bisping is in line to defend his title for a second time against hard-hitting Yoel Romero early in the year.

As for Woodley, a rematch against Stephen Thompson seems to be on deck, which means his quest to take take on Bisping likely won’t see the light of day, especially if either of them lose in their upcoming title defenses.

That said, does anything about this potential matchup do anything for you, should it ever actually see the light of day.
