Agreed. To me it's almost a freebie fight for Bisping. Other than swinging for the fences and somehow landing something big, I don't really see a way for Boetsch to pull off a win.

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.
Well, he did get dropped by Denis Kang, and if Kang had pounded on him after the knockdown instead of going for subs he could've finished the fight. Wandy had him wobbled at the end of the 1st roud and knocked him down near the end of the 3rd, 5 more seconds and I think Bisping would've been out cold.

While it's true that Hendo's the only one so far to put him out cold, Bisping has been wobbled and knocked down several times.

would've, could've, should've... Whilst I agree Wandy was very close to finishing him, the fact is he didnt and neither has anyone else other than Hendo.

How many times has Frankie Edgar been dropped and nobody mentions him as having the potential to be knocked out in almost evey fight, like they do Bisping?

Actually in his rematch against Maynard I'm sure it was mentioned quite a few times as a possible outcome.

As for Bisping, he doesn't have a great chin, but his movement means he takes very few punches at full power. I'm not saying he has a glass jaw either, but a legit 1 punch KO guy landing on Bisping would equal a win instead of a guy like Leben or Hendo who can try to recover. A good thing for Bisping is he avoids most of them with his movement.

Oh really? I stand corrected. I don't remember much talk of it.

To be fair, that is the only opponent of his that I remember it coming up against. Otherwise you are correct.

If the fight ends early then Boetsch, if it goes to a decision then Bisping wins.
It is Bispings fight to lose and I expect Bisping to prove he is the better fighter but that doesn't mean he will win either.

I suspect it will.

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.
Bisping gets rocked much more frequently than Okami though. That said Bisping gets out of danger, shoots for a TD does something besides what Okami did which was basically freeze up on the fence and let Boetsch unload an ungodly amount of bombs on him.
