I see Bisping as a fighter who learns from his mistakes... He's not gonna get headkicked again.

Bispings losses have come against guys with big power or really good wrestling. Belcher has neither of those. He is a solid striker, but he doesnt really have the one punch, end your night kind of ability. He is best when he gets in a position to overwhelm his opponents with volume punches and kicks, that will be incredibly hard to do against Bisping. I see the count taking a pretty clear cut UD.

You are right that Mike's loses have come against men better then Belcher. But Belcher is better then most of the guys Bisping has beaten. He is more well rounded then Stann since he has the ability to sub Mike if it goes to the ground. I think it will be competitive but I think Mike is probably just alittle too good for him in the end. So ultimately I agree Bisping via UD. But I don't think it's easy.

My first gut reaction is that Bisping wins this one quite handily. I might be making a mistake AGAIN by discounting Mr. Belcher but I think Bisping is a more complete fighter then Alan is and there shouldn't be a possibility of a flash KO by Belcher in this fight. (Enter a flash KO by Belcher and me eating crow on this one)

Belcher had his chance to gain some serious momentum to a title contention, then he blew it. A fight with Bisping just makes his trajectory further downhill IMO.

I love this match up. Kind of sucks that they are both coming off of losses. I see Bisping working his striking nad using his better foootwork and speed to win this.

I hope you're wrong... I loved seeing Bisping getting kicked in the head. Also enjoyed Hendo's H-bomb put his spark out.

Either way, as long as Bisping ends up flat on the canvas, it's a good fight.

Yep, said it man.
I was so disappointed in Belcher shitting the bed against Okami. But yes, in the end, loser will officially be the Keith Jardine of the MW division.
