I could see Bisping beating Vitor if he goes into the fight with the right gameplan.

I'd place money on Vitor with a KO/TKO, but Bisping winning is definitely a possibility and something I wouldn't be shocked at seeing.

If Bisping v Silva happened, I'd love for Bisping to win.

Honestly Silva is one of my favorite fighters and Bisping really is just neutral in my book. I want to see him win (in devastating fashion) simply because he was passed over a titleshot for so long now. He's always been the guy who 'couldn't hang' with the elite, and who doesn't love a good underdog!

For that brief moment, I'd love to see him bask in the "I told you I had what it takes!" moment he'd have on the mic after the fight

Bisping has spent the last year being a #1 contender

he can definitely beat vitor, not saying it's gonna be easy, but he improved a lot since his loss to hendo, I don't think he'd be losing to hendo again should they do it again.

I don't think Vitor has much to offer to Bisping that Bisping can't handle.

Vitor is going to crack Bisbing's glass jaw worse than Hendo did.

Yeah exactly. It was one of those fights where you pretty much could tell Bisping was going to be koed soon. He kept circling to the wrong side too.

I think Bisping can beat Vitor if he survives the first. He has very good cardio at 185. I personally think Vitor should be at 205. But, his cardio is average at best anyways.

I just don't think Bisping survives many exchanges. Bisping is all about sticking and moving and out working you. Vitor still has fast hands. You can't out-quick, quick too many times without being caught. And we all know Belfort has power.

Bisping needs to drag this fight along and wear him down. And not look to just jab and move the whole first round. That can work vs. a lot of guys at 185, but not Vitor. He needs to clinch and maybe even look for TDs as the fight goes on.

As I've said Bisping always gets clocked in the head at least once in every one of his fights. I swear he has some kind of a lapse in timing and judgement. I actually want to see him vs Anderson...badly.

I'm afraid the Bisping syndrome will kick in; win two fights lose one, so on and so forth. Then he's gonna be stuck in this position for another five years. He should fight Cung Le for contendership.

Vitor is simply a bad match up.

Just rewatched it. First round was closer then I remembered, probably Hendo's due to the damage done in first couple minutes. The last 3 minutes of that round and most of the 2nd round up to the KO imo favoured Bisping though. During those times he was landing more shots and controlling the action most of the time where as most of Hendo's punches were glancing blows or missing. That said when Hendo did land they were a fair bit more powerful so did make it close. I now remember thinking that Bisping was going to pull out the decision by winning the last 2 rounds since Hendo had slowed down so much but that didn't come true due to the H-bomb landing.

Imo Bisping has improved his striking noticeably since that fight though. That was over 3 years ago now and Bisping has just looked better and better. I think he is well rounded enough to give Anderson a tough fight(as long as Silva doesn't finish it early) but he will have to get past Belfort first which I think he will but you can never count out Belfort and his boxing.
