Hard fight to call but I'm thinking Bisping wins this one. It's hard to picture how this one is going to turn out but I think Bisping is going to wear out Belfort later on in the fight and finish him or win a decision. Either way the winner of this fight I believe will go on to fight Anderson. I'm kinda rooting for Bisping just because I want to see him match up against Anderson I think it'll make for an entertaining fight and would expect Anderson to destroy him adding more to his legacy.

I agree with this but think the UD for Bisping is more likely

I'm not seeing any clear advantage for Bisping here, seems like this could end very quick and brutally for him.

Belfot has:
-Better striking
-Better ground game (very underrated, he could utilize this if Bisping were to take him down)
-Power (Vitor hits and swarms and it's over, for anyone)

Caridio and chin I'd say both could be equal, although I'm siding on the fact I think Michael will drop much easier than Vitor would from equal strikes.

As much as I'd like to see The Count get his title shot, this run to the top is getting derailed viciously via T(KO) by the Phenom.

I really hope Bisping takes this... I wanna see him get a title shot. And I'm ******* sick of Vitor's god and jesus praising post fight speeches. Where is his god when he loses, huh?

I just don't get religious folks.

Vitor is not a wrestler, he is a BJJ black belt and I believe it's not quite fair to judge nobody defense/activity while having Jon Jones in his guard.
To survive for almost four full rounds playing around in Jones' guard is an achievement in itself. How long have other fighters lasted once Jon scored a take down. Jon Jones has the most dangerous and ruthless top game in the entire sport right now. For Vitor to last so long on the ground with Jones on top and neutralise most of his attacks whilst almost securing an arm bar early on his extremely impressive.

Vitors grappling game I feel is being vastly under rated here, like you said, I think he's a much better over all grappler than Bisping and Mike has never really had a good offensive wrestling game. His defensive wrestling is definitely solid, but his offensive game and take downs leave a lot to be desired. Any one remember the take down he tried to get on Dan Henderson, and Hendo just looked at him and laughed.

Vitor is the much more dangerous striker and over all the more technical one, and is the over all superior grappler. Bisping has the edge in cardio and pace, but I don't think that's going to be enough to secure a win.

Belfort should KO Bisping within two.

YOURSELF just brought God and Jesus to this thread. Remember this.

If race matters are forbiden in these threads, religion should be as well for equal reasons.
