Bisping should really use the oblique kick that Jones used on Belfort. Forces Belfort to stay upright and reduces the power of his left straight. Whenever Belfort goes in for the flurry, tie him up in the clinch and grind him out against the fence.
Bisping is more technical but his jaw isn't great. I fought the people saying he had a glass jaw because of his Hendo performance, but he showed he can't take a great shot in the Stann fight. I think if Vitor lands, which is more likley than Stann landing, he has the tools to end it. Bisping can win by out grappling him against the cage though.
