These fights show that Bisping is very much open to getting hit. If Vitor does hit him, its over. I see Bisping making it competitive until Vitor lands, then it will be vicious and over quickly.
I agree with pretty much all of this but Chael in no way outstruck Bisping at any point during their fight.

Yeah that statement kinda confused me too...Bisping handled himself well against Sonnen, especially in the Standup

Up until the third round where he was dominated on the ground and blew the fight

It's the results. Having skills is nice, but to be considered a contender you have to actually get some meaningful W's.

Bisping's been in the UFC for more than 6 years. His best win is Stann. Do you need a better reason?

Sonnen outlanded and landed harder shots almost the entire fight.

Attero Dominatus.

Randy brutalizing him for threerounds wasn't decisive? What about the first time Randy punched his face in or Overseem choking him out?

Vitor will handle Bisping no problem I think. The wrestling is about even, and I give a big standup advantage as well as better BJJ to Vitor. The only advantage ill give Bisping is cardio, if Vitor doesn't KO him by the 3rd then Bisping will probably be the stronger fighter...if.

I think he was talking about Bisping's loss to Dan unless I missed Bisping fighting Couture or Overroid. If I did let me know. That shit would be hilarious.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.
