To be fair, Stann also possess a great deal of power as well. Bisping fought stupid in the Hendo fight. I have no idea why he kept circling to Hendo's power.

I still have my doubts on Belfort's cardio. Bisping really needs to outgrapple him against the cage early, like you said. After that he might be able to cruise to a decision, or try putting more power behind his punches so as to finish Belfort in impressive fashion. People say Bisping has no power but I believe it is because he is so light on his feet.

So in your opinion, Anderson would use his super awesome wrestling skills to take Belcher down and smother him to a unanimous decision?

Makes sense.

No, he'd use his superior striking and knock Belchers over rated ass out cold.

But that isnt what i meant, i meant he was whinging for a shot next. Now he's lost, he's out of the title shot picture.

This. Don't see anything Belcher has to offer Anderson.

I knew okami would dominate belcher again, I don't see why everyone rated him so highly proper to the fight after all he lost to jason day and his best win is over palhares which unfortunately now means nothing which lombard showed. I think they should give weidman the next shot seeing how bisping has only a 50/50 chance of beating belfort and still wouldn't be that great of a win. Can't wait till rockhold, jacare and larkin come over. I wish manheof and khalidov would get signed too.

I'd say Belfort hits slightly bettter than Stann, but it's his finishing ability that would be the difference. Bisping wouldnt be able to tie him up and hold it out if Belfort landed cause he has some of the best GnP finishes of all time. I wasn't aware that Vitor's cardio had a question mark actually. Very interesting twist to the fight.
