Vitor is stronger, faster, and hits harder. Bisping has really grown on me this last year or so, but I can almost guarantee he gets KOed. That said, if he did pull out a miracle and defeat Belfort, I'd petition him for a championship bout myself.

Oh boy...this is not a good match up for Bisping. I really want to see Bisping vs Anderson just for kicks.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Belfort should win pretty handily.

Bisping isn't likely to out-strike him or out-grapple him.

This is the worst possible match up for Bisping outside of Anderson, and even though he got smashed Vitor has to feel somewhat good about the fact he did something to Jones, with Bisping's tendency to get rocked in every fight and Vitor's finishing ability, I'll take Vitor by stoppage.
Great Thread TS!

Well Vitor is the better man for sure, however he has worn his body down quite a bit over the years and bisping is in his prime right now and not a bad fighter himself so its gonna be a fiarly close fight imo. Also bisping may be more well rounded.

Im gonna pick vitor via out punching bisping or subbing him when he gets taken down.

My second choice is Bisping winning by decision after laying and praying on vitor and fence wrestling him for quite some time after getting rocked in the stand up.

If true then shitty match up for Bisping, I don't see this ending well for him at all. It'd be a miracle for Bisping if this goes to the cards.

wow! Tough match up for mike.

I'll be rooting for him but other than outworking Vitor and wearing him out from range I dont see many places he has the advantage.
