I bet half the MMA media is skipping the press confrence and trying to get Chael's response.

Sonnen vs. Vitor needs to happen after the Jones fight. The world deserves to know who the real number two MW is.

Hint. It's Chael Sonnen.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I need a gif of that kick to add to my Hendo one.

Anyways, I thought early on we were seeing old hesitant Vitor, but after Bisping started landing it apparently woke him up. Decent showing by Bisping, especially Bispings chin. He took some solid punches and that first head kick and was still in there. That second head kick does the same thing to every fighter so no shame there.

At this point if they really want Bisping to fight AS they are going to have to just make the fight. He just can't seem to win when it counts the most.

Whoever it was who referred to that as 'embarrassing' is either mentally deficient or a child.

Very proud of Bisping, as he said, you win some you lose some.

Nice Wuk Ariel

Hell no, anytime Vitor Belfort gets a hold of a microphone something great is in the works.

Mike looked good early, but I feel like Vitor was measuring him up. I do think Bisping should have mixed it up and shot in for some takedowns, but Vitor is so strong that he probably would have shrugged them off.

I like Mike, but I didn't give him much chance in this fight. He's good. Very good. But not great.

To be fair if they really wanted him to have that shot they had much easier match-ups to give him. He's had two number one contender fights. One being Chael and the other Vitor. If they wanted that title shot they'd give him someone where he is at least a slight favourite not a slight underdog.

Was expecting to see Bisping pushing Vitor against the fence for the first round or two to wear him down.

Im thanking the mma gods for this one, im glad Silva wasnt forced to do that. Although i have to give credit to Bisping for taking that headkick pretty well....it landed flush and i dont think many would of forced Belfort to pound that one out for the tko.

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'?
There killer instincts are no where near Belfort, the guy is a born finisher....people very rarely get buzzed and survive against Belfort.
