I use to be a very passionate Bisping hater (and I still really enjoy the Hendo KO gif) but he's growing on me. If he puts up a good fight and wins against Belfort, I'd give him the nod to get destroyed by Silva.

I personally think Belfort is about the worst fight Mike could get at 185, so should he win... he is WITHOUT QUESTION ready for a title shot! Anyone who says otherwise is selling something.

However a part of me is hoping that Belfort gets a minor, non career threatening, injury and Bisping is fast tracked to the title shot. I'm just more interested in Bisping fighting Anderson right now than anyone else, and Vitor is the perfect guy to spoil that.

I kind of want to see Vitor fight Anderson again. Sure the first was an insane finish but outside of Chael it's about the only fight Anderson looked like he was working and not just cruising. I think Anderson would embarrass Bisping. So I want to see Vitor or Weidman.

I personally think Belfort is heaps and bounds above all of the other contenders in the MW division (aside from maybe Weidman). His striking is very dangerous and his ground game is top notch.

I highly doubt Bisping finds a way to wrestle Belfort to a decision. Although Belfort ultimately succumbed under Jones' pressure on the ground, I think he proved his worth on the ground in that fight against Jones and I expected Belfort to be Jones' toughest fight to date. Bisping couldn't keep Brian Stann on the ground for any long period of time, how on earth is he going to do the same to Belfort? Bisping is a very strong defensive wrestler and scrambler, but his offensive wrestling and top position control is not great at all and certainly not a real threat to a crafty veteran like Belfort.

I see Belfort brutally KO'ing Mike early here.

Bisping is doing alright in the division, realistically he lost the first round to Jason Miller, should have been DQ'd against Rivera, Dana thought he lost to Stann, and he lost to Sonnen. His run is impressive in statistics only, I don't see him as a legitimate top ten/top five guy yet.

For me to buy him as a threat to win the title he needs a big impressive decisive victory. I don't think he needs to finish Vitor but beating him 30-27 would be good enough to grant him a title shot.

Personally I think Chris Weidman has the talent to beat Anderson Silva. Luke Rockhold seems like the guy that can give Anderson the fight of his life. I'd like to see either of those two fight for the title and have the winner of Bisping/Belfort fight Hector Lombard. That would solidify the top five in my eyes.

Right now my MW rankings are

1. Anderson Silva
2. Chris Weidman
3. Vitor Belfort
4. Michael Bisping
5. Luke Rockhold
6. Hector Lombard
7. Yushin Okami
8. Jacare Souza
9. Mark Munoz
10. Costa Phillippou
11. Brian Stann
12. Tim Boetsch
13. Alan Belcher
14. Cung Le
15. Francis Carmount
16. Rich Franklin
17. Nick Ring
18. Jake Shields
19. Rousimer Palhares
20. Riki Fukodu

I'm pretty excited to see what Sarafian, Mutante, and Markes can do against top level competition. It's a shallow nebulous division which is why Bisping is in the mix.

Well I agree on the Weidman part.

Rockhold on the other hand might die against Anderson, the best guy from Strikeforce coming over is Jacare but he and Anderson won't fight each other. Rockhold's really no different than Belcher in my eyes except he may wrestle a little better but Weidman and Okami could still handle him.

If he beats Belfort than he should get a shot at Silva, why not?? he has been hanging around as long as anyone else and if he truly beats Vitor than he should get the fight..He is probably as deserving as anyone else.


Plus, I would love to see silva put a boxing clinic on up side bispings head..

He's #1 contender in my eyes now, but doesnt deserve it until he fights Vitor. I say he loses but hope he wins and finally gets that shot...which he gets destroyed in lmao. Weidman needs another win to me. Hopefully they dont play the puss*y game and give him someone like Lombard so he can really prove he's as good an undefeated threat to Anderson as all of you keep banging on about, but we all know he's getting a shit and easy opponent in Okami to beat on (shit and easy for him, Okami is the man still).

I still think, and I did at the time, think vitor is the biggest threat to Anderson right now. Anderson is flashy and likes to jump around, but Vitor is rugged and lands big bombs. If Anderson dances into one of them, Vitor can finish ANY fight he gets the opperunity in. I dont see it happening and think Anderson again does what Anderson ALWAYS does, but at the same time, Vitor can do it.
