I see no reason to think Bisping will win this and I love it.

Tough fight to call, but I'm surprised by the amount of people expecting an easy win for Belfort.

Vitor has shot this down as just a rumor.

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.
I think Bisbing may take this, but frankly this is the wrong fight for Belfort. Should have been matched up against Sonnen.

I have problems seeing Bisping winning this, I want him too don't get me wrong, but I can't see it. The only way he wins is to go to a Decision and that's 3 rounds without getting clipped.

Bisping by KO? Not unless Bisping has turned into Popeye
Bisping by Submission - Last sub was not in the UFC and was 7 years ago!

Bisping by TKO or Decision then!

A Decision is possible, but I think he would need to really get his out pointing game down. I just Vitor rushing him if that happens.

A TKO I can't see, Bisping just doesn't have the power.

Big Thanks to KryOnicle for the sig!

Belfort is all around the better striker. Speed, power, technique. I guess I would give Bisping the better footwork but he just can't afford to strike with Belfort.

I think this is a close fight with Belfort having the slight edge.

But Bisping will not fight standing for long enough to get KOd, he will look to get the TD and GnP, Belfort should be the superior grappler and if he can reverse on the ground and stuff alot of TDs he will take the decision.
