I guess i am implying that America is more inherently racist than Britain, that's not a slight against Americans as such, it's just more prevelant in their culture.

So i guess what i'm saying is that by and large being British and Black is a double whammy for the "USA, USA, USA" crowds.

Understand?

Big Dejans has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I think (hope) Vitor will destroy Bisping in the first round. However Bisping trained very hard and he is getting stronger(match with Stann is an example) so it's likely a Bisping's domain.
Aniway I believe in Vitor!

All those Brazilian fans must be racist as well... All that chanting... I think you just make terrible assumptions or don't have enough real world experience to understand how prevelant racism is throughout the world and not just America.

The race talk ends here. No more oh he is black that's why! Forum disruption infractions will be handed out for bringing race talk into it.

I would say i have alot more real world experience than you think, i have lived in three different countries and spent several months in North America. That said, i did not need that time to gauge American culture due to it's global presence anyway.

Just incase this is not obvious, the above in not about race, so no infraction here. I'm happy to drop this now and move back to the thread title, but i wanted my opportunity to respond to your "no real world experience" comment. Cheers.

Bisping does NOT suck. I got low repped to hell for saying he would beat Stann. He's one of the best tehcnical boxers in the UFC and has outstanding grappling (one of the only people to look strong against Chael in that respect). He just needs to learn how to keep his hands up.

I think Vitor is the superior striker. His speed and power will be too much and I just don't see Bisping sticking and moving all night without eating some big shots. Not sure Bisping will be able to take Vitor down over and over either.

Stann and Vitor are different animals. I will admit I also thought Stann could possibly beat Bisping but I was not very confident about it since Mike had the better speed, cardio, technique and even better grappling. But against Vitor IMO He doesn't have any of those advantages outside of cardio/pace. Vitor is faster, a better striker and his ground game is more developed even if he doesn't use it very often.
I just think Vitor is a bad match for Mike with is hand speed and power. I expect Vitor to blitz Mike at some point.

Yeah Stann's striking isn't even remotely close to Vitor's. Not by a long shot. Their grappling is even further apart from that.
