People look at his record, and think, "Wow, this guy is undefeated!" But, when you look at it again, you'll notice that Bisping hasn't fought anyone worth a damn. He got outstruck by a severly battered Elvis Sinosic, and controlled by Eric Schafer. I like Schafer, but he's not even a mid-level guy.
So, he's basically in Bonnar territory, in that he's solid, but will never be champion in a division filled with really good fighters. Hell, I believe that Bonnar would beat him, too.
I don't really care who wins between Hamill & Bisping, because, quite frankly, I'm going to laugh at the guy who loses. I can't stand Matt Hamill and his cheating, but Bisping fans having heart attacks at the sight of Hamill kicking his ass would be hilarious.
I wondered if there would ever be a day I disagreed with you, I guess it happend today.
I dont know how we can count out Bisping to flourish in this division one day. I'll admit, he aint ready for top competition, but lets not kid ourselves, he is only 28, lots of time to improve.
I'll admit a win against Hammill will prove absolutely nothin, but lets see what he does against a Bonnar, Griffin or Jardine before saying he wont amount to anything.
