I think Brian Stann hits harder than Belfort does.
But both tend to keep their feet planted always ready to throw a KO punch at all times and don't move much?
All Bisping needs to do is get Belfort down or tie him up against the cage and make Belfort gas out his arms and a good portion of Belfort's punching power will be gone.
Belfort lets loose against Silva, Franklin and others he knows aren't likely to go for the takedown.
But in the back of his mind he has to know Bisping has strong wrestling and be worried about the TD and it could be enough of a doubt for him to be conservative with his boxing and for Bisping to edge him out on a UD.
What are you talking about
Vitor looked impressive in both those fights and hardly had a hard time. He is fighting grown men who are professional fighters not kids. So he isnt going to be able to just get a finish whenever he wants but he still finished both fights in the first round. Pretty impressive id say.
