RUMOR: Michael Bisping vs. Vitor Belfort at UFC 156

https://twitter.com/search/Michael+B...desktop-search

I've listed this as a rumor because I don't buy anything until MMAFighting, MMAJunkie, or MMAWeekly reports it but twitter is blowing up with this, so take it as a rumor for now. Apparently Alden Halpern(the guy who owns MMA Elite which is Bisping's main sponsor) broke the news.

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.

Good. Maybe people will stop claiming he deserves a shot after he gets KO'd Hendo style again.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Put up or Shut up time for Bisping. If he beats Vitor he can fight Anderson in England as far as I'm concerned.

Bisping uses jab and jog and controls him some in the clinch and maybe a little on the ground. Wins a decision.

Will be interested to see how Belfort handles going back to 185. He isn't getting any younger. I personally thought he should stay at 205 and just gather up big fights.

Belfort may gas if it does for a while. But other than that Belfort all day long.

Its not like he put on weight to fight Jones, he will come down in weight just fine. Would love to see Belfort blitz Bisping.

Never know, he may have done some weight lifting before that title fight just to add clinch strength.

Even so, he is old and had a tough cut when he fought Rumble. A real tough cut. No matter if he went to 205 for a fight or not the cut isn't easy. And I thought he looked a lot more solid when he fought Bones. Some guys like him and Wandy should just be at 205. Old guys shouldn't be cutting that much weight. Look how much better Hendo looks at 205 than 185 these days.

The cuts will just keep getting tougher and tougher.

Yeah, I agree. He basically got to skip his weight cut. I see this ending very badly for Bisping, and not because of my typically Bisping hate, just that Vitor is the exact guy he doesn't want to face. Still, if Bisping can get past Vitor then I honestly have no more reason to not see him face A.Silva. (Not like my personal approval matters at all in the UFC)

Interesting matchup. Bisping is gonna get knocked out if the fight stays standing. Fight smart and bring the fight to the ground.

If Bisping wins, he would probably get a title shot over Weidman.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones
