Looks like Lorenzo found a new, easy and fast way to get his friend Vitor a title shot again.

It is nowhere near's Vitor's but he hits very hard and always lands something. He did hit Bisping but couldn't capitalize, Mike can outpoint Belfort but will have to be flawless this time.

I see Bisping pulling out the upset decision. Even though Belfort is dangerous, I do believe his best days are past him and Bisping is in his prime. It's still a bad matchup for Bisping but I see Belfort losing 2d and 3rd rounds, if Bisping can stay conscious and can stay on point. Bisping wants a shot badly and I think he'll bring his A game.

How many good days were behind W.Silva?

I think Belfort still have the best speed in the division, he is still very accurate, still have decent BJJ. I think he has enough to see off Bisping.

Eh I would be pretty surprised if Bisping out pointed him all night. He has only really done that to slow strikers. He hasn't seen Vitor's kind of speed yet and I doubt he would be able to just stick and move.

Is Vitor still as fast as he was? Serious question.

He hasn't looked overly quick in his last few outings.

All reports out there right now is this is just a rumor and no truth to it at this point. According to Vitor, Ariel and other sources.

He is not as fast as he was, but still the fastest MW around - when he gets his engine going his speed is unmatchable, last time we saw this was Akiyama - as always it ends it him smashed the back of the head repeatedly as his opponents hide and he has little ability to stop when he starts.

Bisping will take this, but I see him having to survive a scare or two, but he'll Decision Belfort.

Bisping is coming into his own, but against so-so to good fighters. How people can have enough faith in this man to say with confidence that he'd defeat Vitor Belfort I'll never know. Each time he faces a top of the heap fighter, he loses.

I like Mike. But people need to accept the reality that he is merely a good fighter and not a great one.
