Bisping would have taken Murray down repeatedly. Bisping's takedowns aren't recognised much but he sets them up well. Against anyone who isn't a good wrestler/grappler he easily gets takedowns. He's going to do it to Rivera and he would have done it to Murray too.
Murray was no way near as good as some people think.
Thank you, glad someone said it. Murray had no significant grappling, he would have been a mid tier fighter at best. Bisping would murder him at Murray's best.
