No trust me, the majority may hate him, but on a heavy American board there is much, much more hate. Seriously maybe 70% hate him here? He is pushing 90% on American boards. The guy is one of the easiest in the sport to root against.

Bisping is the perfect "bad guy" for the Americans: English, confident (see cockey if you're American) and almost always wins (13-4 with only 1 clean loss).

The only guy who i think got more hate than Bisping was Paul Daley who since leaving the UFC is not really in the firing line - i sense Daley is hated for the same reasons as Bisping except with the added bonus of being black.

After Bisping TKOs Belfort i hope he wipes his arse with the American flag as thousands of Brazilians cheer him on (joke)

I hate Paul Daley but that's cause he is a douchebag. Also my hate for Bisping has nothing to do with being British. I don't care where a fighter is from really, fighters only get brownie points if they are from my state. But I don't care if you are Brazilian, Canadian, American or whatever. Ross Pierson is a guy that most Americans root for. Even though he wasn't skilled Ross Pointon was a fan favorite as well. Douche is douche though no matter where you are from. Just like Koscheck is a douche bag that translates to any language or region. The only people that don't hate Kos are cocky ass wrestlers that are just as big of douche bags as Kos.

Also race has nothing at all to do with Americans hating Daley. Nothing at all.

EDIT: I'm actually borderline offended by the assumptions you are making. Especially with the race comment you slid in there. To imply that Mike or Paul's hate has anything to do with anything but their attitudes is incorrect. Most British fighters are received just fine.

People honestly believe that Vitor's only chance is a KO victory? Wand Silva decisioned Bisping, and Vitor Belfort can't do it? Listen... I like Mike, but you people have to promise me that you'll put all of this silly nonsense about his being a legitimate contender back in the closet alongside 'motivated BJ Penn' and 'hungry Rampage Jackson' after another top middleweight again exposes him as the merely good, and not great, fighter that he is.

Are you serious? You can here USA chants nearly everytime Bisping fights in America, basically making a point that Bisping is British.. you can hear USA chants during Daley and Dan Hardy fights in the US aswell.

There are a load of foreign fighters who don't get that treatment when fighting Americans in the US.

Face it, the British are your perfect bad guys, i have.

Don't get drunk live fan confused with the majority of fans. The USA chants are dumb, I'm with you there. But Dan Hardy also gets cheers wherever he is as well despite the drunks chanting USA later on.

You are 100% wrong in assuming that British= Bad guys. Only the British douche bags are the bad guys. Just like the American douchebags. Have you ever heard anyone say anything bad about Andre Winner, Paul Sass, Ross Pierson or so many of the other British guys that seem like good guys? I haven't. People hate Daley and Bisping for the same reason they hate Sonnen, Koshcheck, Rashad and all the other douche bags.

Also to throw out race like that? You're whole post is just ignorance and assumptions. I'm doing my best to restrain myself from typing what I really want to type here.

I think most people around here are unbiased with predictions though. There is a very good chance Bisping will win by decision, but now that I learned it's 5 rounds, it seems even more difficult. I havent seen anything that makes me question Belfort's cardio, and if Belfort lands on anyone he can hurt them. If Belfort hurts you, he WILL finish the fight. Add that to a very hittable Bisping, who also has quite a weak chin, Bisping will have to be technically spectacular to win this one.

Please don't bring race into it gazh. What on earth do you mean by 'the added bonus of being black' anyways?

Guys like Etim, Pearson, Winner, Sass get a lot of love. There's no anti Brit agenda going on, not in mass anyways. Bisping just acts like a dick sometimes. Maybe not so much lately but people don't forget. I used to be a big Daley fan and I cannot stand the guy now, and shock horror, it has nothing to do with his race.

USA chants suck, so do Brazilian crowds that refuse to cheer for anyone that isn't Brazilian. And the way JDS was booed after the Velasquez fight? Wow. Shit crowds are shit crowds and they happen everywhere.

Bisping being British helps in the same way that a Bond villain being say Russian helps. He's just got a certain English demeanor that would rub people the wrong way in the first place, let alone him being a dick aswell, so I understand what gazh is saying. At the same time, the British, or specifically English, aren't hated by Americans point blank. As people have mentioned, the likes of Ross Pearson and Paul Sass have very little bad things said about them, or at the ver least their personalities. Paul Daley was hated for being a complete dick and throwing a dig at Kos after their fight, and even though I'm a fan of Daley, him being black has nothing to do with it. Anderson Silva, the most loved UFC fighter of all time, is also black...
