How exactly do you know there isn't a line of fighters waiting to face him? I suspect it's the exact opposite, there are a ton of guys who would like nothing better.

He is a relatively big name who would be an easy win for many of the top level MW, hence, they would be only too happy to fight him.

Until he shows me he can beat a decent wrestler, he will be strictly second rate. As it stands now, he is dead meat for anyone with a ground game.

I thought Bisping beat Sonnen convincingly won rounds 1 and 3. It's definitely in my top 3 crazy decisions. And a 30-27 scoring was absolutely ridiculous.

Agreed. I had it scored Bisping though it was a close fight. I was also pretty sure that since he done so well against the one guy that looked to topple Silva he would finally get some credit. Just no pleasing some people.

Rounds one and three were clearly Sonnen's. The second round is the only debatable round, and it could go either way.

There was no robbery about it.

Bisping lost, and you clowns need to let it go. The record books are final. I still don't see how anyone can call the decision 'crazy'. A razor sharp first round. A second round favouring Bisping slightly. And a third round wildly in Chael's favour. Yes... those crazy, crazy judges.

Bisping lost. There is an 'L' beside his name in that contest. Your words mean nothing. They won't change a thing. It's time to accept reality

And Hector doesn't yet have the shot. He first has to defeat Stann, and even then, there's no guarantee that Dana won't simply change his mind. Until this actually comes to fruition, people are getting worked up over nothing.





































Bisping lost to Sonnen.

for me it comes down to how hector goes in the stan fight.

if he comes in and stan gets KTFO in 30s the bandwagon will change significantly and a title shot would be in order

if he looses may as well go back to bellator

if its a 3 round descision i think he needs to fight throught he rest and lets see what hes got.

i can understand the comments from bisping but would have listened more if it was from munoz

If he beats Stann I'd be more interested in seeing him fight Silva than watching Bisping vs Silva.

Sounds a lot like Silva vs Sonnen 1.

Clowns? What's the need to be so aggressive? I clearly mentioned it was a close fight, despite having it scored for Bisping, I wouldn't call it crazy and it was close enough to be understandable.

My point was more along the lines that Bisping deserves more credit than he gets. That lose to Sonnen impressed me more than a lot of his wins.

How did he beat Sonnen when Sonnen out struck him and out grappled him for all three rounds?
