This is the biggest fight of Bisping's career, it's his time to put up or shut up as a previous poster said. If he loses, he will probably never get the title shot he so badly wants. But if he wins, he would make an undeniable statement as a legit contender who can't be refused a title shot.
I'm a big fan of Bisping so I'll be rooting for him, but if i had to bet on it it's hard not to see Belfort putting him away. It would be awesome though to see Bisping viciously KO Belfort in the first round

If this happens it will be an awesome fight. It's incredible too me how Chael Sonnen can talk his way to a shot at the light heavyweight title without fighting anyone in that division and a guy like Bisping who has beat many good fighters hasn't got his chance yet.Belfort will be a very tough test for Bisping these two are arguably the two best middleweights behind Anderson Silva.

Vitor via armbar.

Bisping just beat a powerful puncher in Stann but Belfort is a whole different animal. Who knows.

Looks like I might have to fire up my Bisping sig again.

Bisping did great against Stann who has dangerous hands, but he lacks the physicality of Belfort who can charge through punches at blinding speed and lands hard shots. I'd say Belfort overpowers him on the ground too.

However, this is the ticket to title shot for Bisping and he's determined to have a go at it... he did just lose a questionable decision to Sonnen and defeat Stann handily, he's fighting better than ever.

All out scrap Vitor takes this but we'll see how Mike approaches him.

I don't think Stann's striking is anywhere near Vitor's tbh. Power is all he really has going for him.

Well if this be true, Michael won't be getting a title shot any time soon. He'd better pray Vitor has a crisis of faith or something because I don't see him giving the phenom problems in any aspect. I would have liked to see Bisping get a tile shot since he's paid his dues with interest but I foresee a mat-nap in his near future...
