I disagree. Good strikers shouldn't 'get caught' by rear leg high kicks. It wasn't accidental or part of a wild exchange. Bisping has a tendency to over parry strikes and put his hands down and forward when defending. Vitor exploited that by pawing a jab and getting Bisping's hand's away from his head. A great set-up for the head kick.

The fight couldn't have gone either way. It went the way of the better fighter. It went the way of the figher with generally more power, speed and defense, who seemed to have come in prepared with good tactics.
