Great fight, Bisping should get a UD, late TKO is possible too.

What Boetsch did in his last fight was great, but not many guys make a habit of such performances. The reason I don't think he'll repeat it against Bisping is that Bisping sets a much higher pace than Okami and will increase the pace if he's having his way.

Okami was having his way with Tim but kept the same pace, seemed content with the combos he landed and didn't pressure. That is why Tim's aggression in the 3rd completely surprised him and he got clocked.

Bisping should be able to tire and hit Boetsch enough early in the fight to prevent such a comeback.

Bisping wins vis dancing around and pilow fisting Boetsch to a UD. I would love to see Boetsch get his hands on Bisping and land some huge shots but Im afraid Bisping is just too fast and technical and will make sure this fight is not a brawl.

Looks like Bisping will finally get that top ten win that has avoided him.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

I can't figure out if this is a good fight or a bad fight for Bisping. Truth is he will from a technical stand point have a huge advantage in the stand up. That said Boetsch will eat what ever Bisping throws and look for the kill so its a a fight were Bisping more than anything needs to cross every T and dot every I.

I hear what you mean. This is Bispings fight to lose. If he can stay clear of Boatsch and his power then he should cruise to a victory. If Boatsch is able to pressure Bisping and land a good shot and rock Bisping then it could be interesting.

If the fight ends early then Boetsch, if it goes to a decision then Bisping wins.

Good fight, though i'm not at all convinced a win here gets Bisping straight back into contention.

I also don't think Boetsch trying to run through Bispings punches is going to get him anywhere other than TKO'd.

This. Bisping is too fast, too technical and too clever a fighter to be caught the way Okami was. Im not saying he has no way to lose but 9 times out of 10 Bisping wins this fight.

I still like the way that after the Dan Henderson KO that some people assume Bisping is an easy knock out... they forget this is a guy who has only been finished 1 time in his UFC career. Tim boetch is no Dan Henderson.

Bisping by TKO or possibly UD.

Fingers crossed this fight looks a lot like Bisping/Leben, with Bisping keeping distance, moving in, tagging Boetsch and moiving out.

Bisping does get rocked quite often but i do think he has better recovery than Okami, if he gets rocked like Yushin did i think he'll do a much better job keeping distance and recovering.

Funny how Bisping can be so strong against good wrestlers like Rashad and Sonnen. How did he get that way? Training with Rampage? I just cant believe it. Maybe hes just naturally suited to wrestling. At least more than other UK fighters.

Anyway. Nice fight. I've said it 100 times before and I'll say it again: I've never been bored watching a Bisping fight. Never. Thats why I'll always dig him despite his annoyances... of which there are *many*. I need to see Bisping come through a fight against a big puncher comfortably. If he has trouble with Tim... god ( or whoever ) knows what Silva will do to him if he should ever get that chance.

This is a good match-up and it should favor Bisping.

He has the tools to outpoint, box and speed advantage to earn a UD over Boetsch.

That being said, don't be surprised if Tim pops in there and tags Michael a few times. The guy has barbarian strength. A wounded animal is always the dangerous.... Bisping better be cognisant of this against the cage, otherwise it could be lights out real quick!
