Bisping is better everywhere.... he's got this.

plus Belcher is annoying as hell, and he's disrespecting the legacy of Johnny Cash with that ugly ass tattoo. I should ******* beat him up myself just because of that.

Bisping should indeed beat Belcher but Belcher although technically not quite on par with Bisping in terms of his stand up, does have a bit of an advantage in terms of power and Belcher can also kickbox and can definitely compete with Bisping on the ground. But I'm pulling for a Bisping **** hot performance with a TKO in this one and definitely, Johnny Cash wouldn't be too impressed by that tattoo either

Belcher takes this. Bisping will try and Box with the better, more powerful Boxer. Or..., he might try to get the fight to the ground. If he succeeds, he gets subbed. Bisping will lose 2 in a row, 3 of his last 4. Hopefully then it will be time to start thinking about cutting him?

Funny shit.

I'm fairly certain Bisping will retire a UFC fighter.

I respect everybody's opinion but I'm certain that the boxing of Belcher isn't on par with Bisping's he might have the power advantage but Bisping can outbox him at will and Bisping has already finished guys with just as good BJJ with his ground and pound.

Favorite fighters:

John Dodson Joe Benavidez Brad Pickett Michael McDonald Ricardo Lamas Mike Wilkinson Anthony Pettis Khabib Nurmagomedov Dan Hardy Michael Page Tom Watson Anderson Silva Jimi Manuwa Alexander Gustafsson Mark Hunt Cain Velasquez

What frustrates me is that he has a lot of tools, he can box, he has a high level and dynamic kickboxing he is a killer in the clinch, his BJJ is said to be pretty good and he has showed his MMA wrestling is pretty impressive too. But what he shows in some fights is different, when he fought last with Vitor he expected to win that fight by out pointing him and avoiding any flurries with his footwork and it didn't work and he got caught with a great kick to the head and got finished. When if Bisping wanted to he could make a fight where his opponents had no clue what Bisping wanted to do next. He needs to use his clinchwork, he needs to throw more kicks and he needs to use his grappling and punish his opponents from top like he did to Jason Miller and maybe we can see a little of his submission game. If he wants to beat Alan Belcher with the Jab and move game he can but if he is going to finally raise some eyebrows he needs this fight to show how dynamic he can be and if he does that he can beat Belcher impressively.

After reading this I'm unsure whether it sounds like I'm merely a fan or I'm his Mother. But I believe Bisping can do much more if he shows much more.
After seeing his last fight against Vitor, which I know he lost. I do however believe that Bisping has reached his own "next level" recently, he looked very good in that fight, got caught, that's it. But he was, and still is shooting for the gold, he made huge improvements on his game as a whole.

Michael Bisping can beat Vitor Belfort but take nothing away from Belfort he landed some good punches and through the high kick in there that got him his win. Vitor won because he never limited his attack against a high level opponent and it paid off.

He did already retire a fighter... Charles McCarthy.

Edit: Now that I read your post again I think you mean he won't be cut from the UFC.
