Yeah Vitor is the possible roider. Bisping is the definite douche.

Vitor is faster and could definitely swarm and finish him, but don't be surprised if he gets tooled for 25 minutes.
Vitor is definetly the better wrestler. very strong in the clinch too. i doubt Bisping could takedown Chuck.

I can see why Wanderlei didnt like Belfort durung TUF Brazil, he is a sermonising hypocrite, a damn good fighter but an arse just the same.

I predict when Belfort takes off his cap it will reveal a wide mullet/mohican- seriously im calling this one.

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.
Didn't Anthony Johnson take Belfort down like 3 times? Bullshit stand-ups otherwise Johnson might have lasted the round instead of being choked out in the first. Not saying Johnson would have won though since his cardio was failing him ( Not his wrestling ).

Anyway, I don't get why people talk about Belfort being such an elite striker. Really, he isn't that technical. Speed and power, yeah he has them. But does that make him an elite striker? No. His flurries are just left right left rights while charging forward like a bull. Bisping can easily avoid these flurries by clinching up when Belfort gets close or just backpedaling and sidestep to get off the line of attack. Now I have no idea whether Bisping manages to do that, but he should be able to.

I hope Bisping triumphs and puts the idea of Belfort being an "elite" striker/boxer to rest. Bisping has some questionable striking defense though so I'm quite worried.

Anderson Silva
Aldo - Dos Anjos - Mayday - Weidman - Machida - Jones

We all saw that at the stare off. It was clear to see at the back of his head.

Bisping by dominant decision over possibly the most over-rated fighter of all time.
