It's definitely going to be exciting. I want Mikey boy to win. Never been a huge fan of his but he's growing on me as he hasn't done any stupid cringy shit in a while Vitor just makes me shake my head when he talks, but can't hate on him as a fighter, dude is exciting as hell. Still sticking with the early first or second round KO for Belfort or a UD for Bisping. Seems to be the popular call as well.

SO much MMA from tonight! The drought is over!

Got to say, I've very much enjoyed the back and forth banter on these Bisping-Belfort threads over the last couple of days, thanks to all who contributed.

Hand on heart i think this is dead dead close, I truly believe Bisping has never beaten an opponent on Belfort's level - however i do see Bisping improving each fight, let's see if he really is there yet!!

I just realized this is a five rounder. If it were a 3 round fight I'd say Vitor 90%. Now it's gone down to 75% even though I already bet on em. If Vitor can handle the LHW for four rounds then he should be able to handle this nonetheless.

No need to refresh my memory. Go back a couple of pages, and it was me giving out the history lesson.

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.
And Brian Stann doesn't? And Chris Leben doesn't? And Jorge Rivera doesn't?

Truth is, there's ONE guy that was able to land a kill shot on Bisping an that guy kicked Vitor's ass as well. Losing by KO to Dan Henderson is nothing to be ashamed of. Henderson is the most decorated fighter of all time.

Stann, Rivera, and Leben all have power yes, but their hand speed is nothing compared to Vitor's. Their killer instinct isn't comparable to Vitor's, Bisping's chin is pretty solid but if Vitor clips him he better cover up and do a good job of it because Vitor will swarm him quickly.

You'll get no argument from me.

If Vitor knocks his opponent out, then yes, he will probably win.

I'm not really a fan of either guy, but I would rather Bisping win because he would be a new challenger for Anderson.

That being said, I wouldn't be against Bisping taking a nap on the mat tonight, either.

Stann, Rivera killer instinct lesser than Belforts? i politely disagree, I would question Leben only because of his last couple of performances.
Again politely i ask why make such a statement about the 'killer instinct'?
