is bisping a "can"

after his bad ko would you say he's now considered a "can". I mean i look at the top ten middleweight fighters, and i dont think he matches up well with many of them. I dont think he is a "can" but i think he needs a good performance in his next fight to a guy thats not in the top ten.

He has had two losses in his career, which included Evans and Henderson. Bisping is definately a cocky bastard, but far from a "can".

I'm moving this to Smacktalk, because the last thread like this ended up in nothing but flaming and pointless posts.

Also, no, as much as I don't like the guy, Bisping is a good fighter.

I see our second "can" thread today is off to a good start!

No, I wouldn't call Bisping a can. But he is/was very overrated IMO.

Bisping has just been over hyped and cant live up to it he isn't a can he is just a gate keeper who will never be an elite level fighter.

Damnit! Wanted to make the gatekeeper point. I hate Bisping, but he's at the same level as Clay Guida in his division. He'll give some folks at 185 a bit of a hard time, but no elite fighters.

Agree with both of you, he didn't deserve to beat Hamill, which is his biggest win.

He'll never have KO power, and his ground game isn't great so yeah gatekeeper at best.
