Bisping is better now than he was fighting Rivera. That was almost a year ago. With that said, Belfort sure is a stern test.
Is he? Because Hendo, Kang, Wand, Akiyama, Rivera, and Stann all have rocked him, his striking defense has serious holes in it and I don't think the Brazilian crowd will let Vitor get wrestled(Bisping's only chance of winning). Rumble didn't get to wrestle him in Brazil and I don't think Bisping will either and if Bisping stands with him he'll get knocked out.
