Despite what anybody says, Bispings defensive wrestling is very good.

This is a good match-up, both have great overall MMA games. If Mike can avoid mistakes he can take it but one slip up and Vitor is going to KO or sub him. Mike is going to have to grind out a D or wear Vitor out then TKO/Sub of his own in the later rounds.

Anthony Johnson is a much bigger, better wrestler than Michael Bisping. And we all saw how that ended. People are counting way too much on Mike's wrestling capabilities, which are beginner level.

When Sonnen outwrestled and finished Stann, it was 'my grandmother could take Stann down'. When Bisping does it, and barely squeaks out a decision victory, it's a whole different ballgame and now he's ready to defeat the likes of Vitor Belfort and clash with Anderson Silva. Total nonsense.

His wrestling might not be the best in the division. but if you compare it now to where it was when he won The Ultimate Fighter, it's night and day.. And he seems to be improving every fight.


EDIT: might as well put this in this thread:

Bisping just tweeted:

Vitor just chinned me at the press conference.

Vitor is faster and could definitely swarm and finish him, but don't be surprised if he gets tooled for 25 minutes.
No one is underrating Bisping.

We all realize he can win this. But it isn't a favorable matchup like he is usually given.

In my opinion he is not even close to a better striker. Vitor's hands are much better than Bisping. Bisping does a good job with footwork, and breaking a guy down over time. But Vitor has much better boxing when fresh. He puts almost everyone out that isn't named Anderson.

It just isn't a great matchup if they are trying to get him a title shot. "hey come down to Brazil and fight a 1st round monster in his home country".

It isn't like Vitor is a huge favorite. And no one really has said he should be. People that say Vitor easy just don't like Bisping. If Vitor wins it may look easy though, as it will probably be in the first round.

Bisping may edge Vitor in footwork, but I would give everything else to Vitor in the striking department.

Yeah he has better footwork, he uses more kicks and he has slightly more reach.

I wasn't talking about things like reach. Vitor has the speed and a very big power advantage.i think his timing his better as well. While Bisping does utilize more kicks, Vitors boxing is just better IMO.
