I don't like a safe fight. The way that Koscheck beat Daley to secure his spot against GSP, the way that Cain fought JDS (even Dana White said it, relax), or even the way my guy Carlos beat Diaz... I don't like it at all... Having said that, if Bisping is smart here... he will take Vitor down as much as humanly possible and wear him out... go for the late finish. Mike!!! Do not stand with this man!

Bisping has looked really improved and is ready to hot streak his way to a title shot like many others in the past. But again I believe that people tend to overlook Belfort all the time, even for this fight. I still think Vitor is the 2nd Best MW in the UFC skill wise, and is just caught in the "Rashad Evans situation". Ill predict a Vitor win.

I'm really hoping Bisping can put things together and pick up the win here. This is just such a difficult match up for him in my eyes, but he's been improving a lot every fight. He's only been knocked out once in professional MMA, and all of his decision losses have been very competitive. The only thing is, he tends to get hurt at least once in a lot of his fights and if Belfort hurts you, he's quick to look for the finish. Bisping has to fight very defensively for the first few rounds, and maybe even mix things up with his underrated wrestling in an attempt to tire Belfort. Good thing this fight is 5 rounds, Bisping can afford to fight defensively for a little while.

I am going to pick Vitor.

Now normally I pick against Bisping out of spite or just dislike of his fighting style, but I think his poor early defense and Vitor's early rush will finish this fight. When Bisping fought Kang he was nearly finished, but Kang, like a freshmen at prom, couldn't last 2 minutes. My honest thoughts are Vitor via KO/TKO because Bisping seems to like to take a shot or two before putting his hands up. I think when Bisping gets hit hard and faster than he has ever been in his life that it will all be over.

Bisping has been rocked by everyone he's fought in the last three years besides Chael Sonnen, Dan Miller, and Mayhem Miller. Everyone else clipped him once, including old man Rivera.

When Vitor touches that chin, Bisping's going down and then Vitor will finish him off.

That's what makes me worried for Bisping. For a quick fighter, he finds a way to get clipped a lot. Bisping should just practically run away for 2 rounds, not even exaggerating. When Belfort cuts him off, he needs to turn it into a grappling match to avoid that power of Belfort.

If Bisping does manage to win, this will be the most impressive win of his career by far in my opinion.
