Vitor is the second best fighter at MW right now. Anthony Johnson is a far better wrestler than Bisping, and he couldn't keep Vitor down. I don't see Bisping holding Belfort down or against the cage with his mediocre wrestling, especially as Vitor is also the stronger fighter. There's also no question as to who the better, harder hitting striker is.
Mike couldn't even get the better of an over the hill Wanderlei Silva in the stand-up, and I'm to believe that he'll outpoint Vitor Belfort? Sorry, no can do.
Ummm, because every time he faces off against top opposition, he loses?
Oh I'm not confident... I call it 'hope'
