This is the worst possible match up for Bisping outside of Anderson, and even though he got smashed Vitor has to feel somewhat good about the fact he did something to Jones, with Bisping's tendency to get rocked in every fight and Vitor's finishing ability, I'll take Vitor by stoppage.
Great Thread TS!
Well Vitor is the better man for sure, however he has worn his body down quite a bit over the years and bisping is in his prime right now and not a bad fighter himself so its gonna be a fiarly close fight imo. Also bisping may be more well rounded.
Im gonna pick vitor via out punching bisping or subbing him when he gets taken down.
My second choice is Bisping winning by decision after laying and praying on vitor and fence wrestling him for quite some time after getting rocked in the stand up.
