I think you guys might be forgetting that Faber is an OG double triple OG. Remember when he fought 100 Thai guys at the same time in some bar? Bisping is only equal to about 50 Thai guys.

Because he can't beat any of the top guys near his weight.

Nah, I'd rather see Mighty Mouse vs Bob Sapp, since he could actually win that fight if he just hits Sapp once.

I hate how misleading shit like this is. If you read this, you get the impression he brought it up when in reality the interviewer specifically asked how a fight with Bisping would go. Uriah just responded. It wasn't a serious call out or a challenge.

EDIT: Not attacking OP. I just don't like this type of journalism.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Let's see it. Bisping has to make 185 and Faber can weigh as much as he wants, 1 five minute round for charity. I'd pay for it.

Can you imagine the gif/picture spam if Faber KO'd him?

Would like to see Faber spar with Manny Pacquiao (or other high level striker near his size) & true to evolve his game more.

Its ridiculous how Faber talks about his speed & how fast he is given the way he stands flat footed right in front of people and plods like a 265 lb heavyweight. He just stands right in front of Aldo & lets Aldo kick him in the leg repeatedly.

He stands right in front of Barao & tries to play the range game against someone with longer reach than him. He'd probably do better fighting more like Demetrious Johnson & using his speed and movement to his advanrage.

Faber's approach to fighting is similar to how someone who is 6 foot 5 who weights 250 lbs would approach the game.

He comes out thinking he only has to land one good punch to KO/TKO his opponent in the way a lot of fighters who have KO power do. He'd do a lot better using combinations and moving well, than the way he fights standing flat footed and trying to land one big bomb.

Now Faber's down the ladder and Bisping (to me) is the rightful #1 contender.
