Bisping. No contest

In my opinion this would be Bisping's fight easily. Griffin is good and getting better but he's no where near as good as Dana White would like us to believe he is. He himself has drawn attention to his occasional attacks of head down, swing wildly style fighting. There is a tendency to discredit the fighters who make their name on TUF but Bisping is the real deal. He began training at 8 years of age and at 15 competed in England's first NHB competition. He then took up kickboxing and went on to become the North West Area Title, and later won the Pro British Light Heavyweight Kickboxing Title, twice. It's fair to say that he hasn't faced any top level guys in his MMA career as yet but I can't see him loosing any time soon. Bisping is the real thing. Griffin's good but better as a poster boy than a serious top level fighter. Would love to see this fight though. I could be wrong.

Right leg, hospital.
Left leg... cemetary.

I need to see Bisping fight in the ufc before I would pick him over Griffin. I haven't seen any of his fights except for tuff. From what I've seen Griffin's reach could come into play and Griffin's ground game is underestimated imho

Dude going 3 rounds with Tito is easy...all you have to do is be able to wrestle and Box....Boxer's give Tito all kinds of trouble....One thing I noticed about Bisping is this. "He can't take a punch" If Forrest lands one on that chin....It's over.

If it werent for Titos knee, and trust me he was hurt. This was no excuse, I know a bad knee when I see one and I saw Titos after that fight. Tito wouldve finished Forrest. I give Forrest alot of respect for that fight, but if it werent for the knee the whole fight woulda looked like rd 1.

This would be an EXCELLENT matchup.
Forrest has some off some wins and Bisping would be a great stand-up match for him.

I like Bisping, he just has "the look". He's serious enough, I just don't know if he can go the distance. Would be a great test for him.

Maybe someday we'll see it !!

I'd go with Bisping. Bisping's a precise striker who's decent on the ground.

Forrest is a sloppy striker who has heart.

People talk about Bisping's chin, but Forrest throws his punches so wildly, that the chance they'd actually connect(On Mike's chin) is slim. Bisping would tee off on Griffin's face.

I think given both's fight experience/years training Bisping wins this in decisive fashion. Just because he hasn't been seen in the US or in the UFC make no mistake he is the real deal. His ground game has no holes and his stand up is awesome. He can trade punches or take it to the ground. He has his choice of where to finish Forrest. Forrest's only chance is to land a clean shot in the sweet spot. (notice how i didn't say lucky)
