^^^ This. Bisping's footwork and standup is great and most of the time it's his main weapon, but in a fight against AS, that weapon will turn into liability. AS would TOY with Bisping for 4 rounds and decide to KO him in the 5th.

Bisping best bet is to Couture him against the fence with dirty boxing and try for the takedown. It will be an ugly fight for Bisping but that would be his only chance and even sticking to that gameplan he is bound to fail.

Looks like Bonnar's plan and Anderson is such a nice guy he helped him plenty on making that happen.

Bispings wrestling is often overlooked, he has to resign himself to the fact he is years away from the fluid movement and striking of Silva however Silva hasnt always been as good as he is now its taken years of training and dedication, theyre is a definite mental edge to Silvas game.
Anyhoo Bisping would definitely benefit from an extremely high tempo fight, he should try and work the dirty boxing as mentioned earlier, but i feel his best chance is outwrestling Silva and doing pretty much what Sonnen did, Bispings work rate is world class and thats where his chance lays.

He can't do what Sonnen did because his wrestling is nowhere near the level of Sonnen's.

Hmmm a guy with a glass chin and pillow hands against a guy with an iron chin and the best striking in MMA history.

Can't wait, should be a nailbiter.

Glass chin? Please, show me all these KOs Bisping has been on the receiving end of.

Using that logic, Roy Nelson also has a glass chin.


Pillow hands... I'll give you that one though, he certainly doesn't have one shot KO power
