I disagree. Bisping is pretty good but still far from the top fighters I mentioned already. I'm almost certain Chuck would knck Bisping out with an ease. Wand would just destroy him with the fast flurry of punches but let's leave Bisping out of it for now.
Yes it was the case few years ago when Wand pretty much rules this division. It looks to me like Rampage is riding a nice wave. I just hate that this cocksmoker White is making him fight Henderson as his first title defense. He may not be ready for him yet. I think he could step in the cage against Wand and beat him now. So the scenerio right is that Shogun is probably still better than Rampage and so is Henderson (I hope Rampage can surprise us though). We still need to see one or two more fights of that Houston buff to see what he's really worth.
I couldn't agree with you more Ebonics_Lover that pretty much says it all . With the talk of chuck fighting wand that will tell us a bunch i would like to see bisping and houston fight. and then the winner of that fight fighting a top ranked fighter and see how they do that would answer that question as well. What are you thoughts on Tito vs Evans 2? and on Anderson Sylva vs Rich Franklin 2?
OK Bisping has some decent skills and a big heart but he did not look strong to me against Elvis. Not sure if I remember right but didn't he get rocked once and if Elvis went after his he could have finished him? So I see Bisping only closing the distance with Houston if he can avoid his hammers. If gets caught on his way he's KOed.
Ortiz vs Rashad...? I did not waste a tiny bit of my emotions on this fight. These will never hold the belts and in my opinion are far from being the top contenders.
Rich has one chance to win this if he can somehow mount him. Anderson is stronger than him and more skilled. Anderson trains with big NOG so his JJ is better than Rich's. I hope Rich made his money already because he's a respecetable man and I don't see him being on the very top anymore. Right now the only fighter who can beat Anderson would someone like Sherk or Hughes. Super strong wrestler with great cardio but do we have anyone like that in this weight class?
