Never understood the matchup.

You would think with the lack of fighters at MW they would be all for Bisping getting a title shot. It would at least do decent numbers.

So why did they give him a Brazilian power striker with a ground game....in Brazil? Didn't understand the logic by the UFC.

That's what I was saying as soon as they announced it. I said it before, Bisping should have taken the Cung Le fight. It would have been FOTN or KOTN, but definitely a good chance to catapult Bisping to a title shot. People underestimate Vitor. They alway say he's mentally weak, hasn't beat top competition, or he's a fast starter, but fades. He was a gamer against Chuck in his prime and Tito although it could have gone in Vitor's favorite. As long as Vitor is on his game he poses a very legitimate threat to anybody at 185 or 205. He's one of the few fighters who can KO a person multiple times before they hit the ground.

I remember someone mentioning that his fight against Tank was meaningless. Dude, Tank was wrecking everybody in the UFC. It was a David vs Goliath matchup and Vitor put em in his place. Think about it this way. Say your're 170lbs - 200lbs and matched up against a 300lb football player with rudimentary mma skills do you think it'll be an easy fight. He catches you or grabs you and it can be a very long night whether you're an expert or not.

I think he should rematch Hendo cuz he should have won, but at the time he didn't realize how good of a chin Hendo had and I'm sure he underestimated em. While all of his contemporaries are fading only him and Hendo are on an upward surge. I wonder if he can cut to 170lbs. As much as I like GSP, Vitor would be a very dangerous opponent if he somehow made it down there. Otherwise off to 205 to take some heads off.

thank you

I agree, both Bisping and Belfort looked sharp, Bisping got caught, Belfort is always good at that, we all knew that too. it could have gone either way.

I don't agree.

Vitor won the first round. He landed a headkick on him in teh first and a power punch that stunned Bisping. Belfort didn't wilt in any sort of clinch, when people said Bisping may be able to take him down.

I don't understand how Bisping "looked good". He jabbed and moved like he always does. Landed nothing much other than some jabs. Bisping didn't just "get caught". Belfort held back and figured out his opening. He looked for that head kick a lot because he knew it would land.

Bisping may have outlasted him if it went a ways. But it was evident to see who the better striker was. Especially when you take the power into consideration.

Bisping was dropped by an old washed up Wandy. And lost a fight that was basically a striking contest. If he can't beat Wandy at this stage of his career he wasn't going to beat Vitor unless he made it through some rounds and Vitor gassed.
