I'm from the UK but that doesn't mean I have blind love for Bisping. I just think Vitor isn't really relevant any more and I've been thinking that for quite some time. Vitor gasses, Bisping does not. I can see Bisping coming into this with a smart gameplan which leaves Vitor gasping for air.

That said, Vitor only needs to get his flurry on and Bisping is done.

Yeah, I have to side with the Brit on this one. Bisbing is a tough dude, and Vitor just isn't the speed demon he used to be. I think his fight with Franklen is the last glimpse we're gonna see of that.

Bisbing is a grinder, and a very underestimated grappler. He'll strike is Belfort just fine. I don't think Vitor will KO him. I see this a grind match similar to Belfort vs. Tito.

Vitor is above and beyond the best striker Bisping will have fought. And his speed is definitely enough. Bisping gets caught by slow slow strikers.

When has Vitor gassed since returning to the UFC? Heck, when has Vitor gassed since dropping to MW? It hasn't happened. Whereas Bisping gassed in his fight with Mayhem Miller. No need to make up facts. There's really no question as to Belfort's conditioning.

Vitor's cardio to me, is a mystery since he hasn't ever gone past the second round since coming back to the UFC at 185.

He does cut a lot of weight though, the infamous ice chewing video clearly tells us that, I'd imagine, if Bisping could get off on him with his volume style and the fact that Vitor does go through hell to make 185 he'd probably gas against Bisping.

But, I don't think Bisping beats Vitor, he's been rocked against everyone he's fought in the last three years except for Chael, Miller, and Mayhem who aren't known for their punching power and Wanderlei almost put him out, Vitor would KO him I feel.

Apologies, maybe "gassed" was the wrong word. He seems to exhaust all of his speed and tenacity rather quickly (IN MY OPINION.

I rest my case. You will be hard pressed to find someone outside the UK that doesn't think this is a bad style matchup for Mike. Vitor is faster, hits harder, has a better chin, stronger and is a nightmare matchup for Bisping.

I've only given neg rep to trolls/bots posting nothing but links(they all got banned anyways), but for actual posters I only give out positive and I've given a ton of those. I don't give negs just for disagreeing. Only for things like that one guy that said he took joy in Americans dieing in 9/11. **** that guy.

I just want Vitor to punch Bis in the face repeatedly. Then after a severe beating he knocks him out.
