I'm rooting for Bisping, but I think Vitor takes it.

Bisping is taking this he is being strategic, he has Vitor so amped up that Vitor is gonna dump everything in under 5 minutes and you watch Bisping will get on his bike and ride that thing around the cage and then spend the next 20 peppering Vitor.

but Bisping gets caught by everybody, if you get caught by Vitor then you are probably not going to get a chance to recover.

Honestly when these fights get made, the 'if it goes out of the first round X fighter wins' type fights, how often does the guy who absolutely needs to win it in the first round actually win?

Vitor can win. It's just so unlikely. And with Bisping being an underdog, you'd be crazy to bet on Vitor.

Vitor's biggest accomplishment is that he's a '2 time' UFC champion. He won the UFC 12 tournament by beating Tra Telligman and Scott Ferrozo and he went 1-2 with Couture in their series with his only win being a freak accident where his glove got caught in Couture's eyelid. He got absolutely trashed by Couture the other two fights.

The guy really has never done anything that spectacular, and the fact people consider him KOing Tank Abbot to be impressive really just says it all.

Bisping is a douche, but he comes to fights with smart game plans and is perfectly happy to grind out decisions when necessary. And that to the fact that Vitor will be a punching bag by round 2, and this is going to be very messy.

How is it unlikely?

Bisping gets clipped every time he fights someone who has power behind their punches, Vitor has that, plus speed and very good follow up ability. I expect this a lot to look like the Rich Franklin fight.

People keep saying Bisping gets clipped every fight and whilst that may be true how many times have we seen him get clipped then finished on the ground? Never is the answer.

I'm not saying its not going to happen but those backing Vitor seem to think its a stonewall certainty.

It's the fact he gets clipped coupled with the fact Vitor has great killer instinct.

Wanderlei, Lindland, Rich, Akiyama, he's one of the best at finishing the job when he's got someone on the rocks, that could backfire on him though if Bisping survives the onslaught but I don't think he will.

There's a difference. None of those fighters actually attempted to follow up on their opportunities, minus Wand who scored them with too little time left in the round to finish. Vitor is known for clipping, swarming, and finishing... he does it almost every fight. That's why people can see the same happening here.

As you said, just because it hasn't been done doesn't mean it won't be. Nothing is certain in a fight of course, but the odds of Vitor finding Bisping's chin and finishing the fight are hardly unlikely.

Can't lie, I'm totally pumped for this fight. Can't remember the last time I was this nervous for a fight.
