Bisping has been rocked or put to sleep by every single guy he's fought with any kind of finishing ability. So Belcher by stoppage.

What about Stann and Rivera?

Bisping gets finished by elite finishers. I don't think Belcher's one of them

I think he'll shoot and secure a takedown at the end of each round. (if he needs to)

He got rocked by both of them. He got saved by the bell against Stann and wanderlei twice.

When Belcher is on he can beat just about anyone he's a bad dude.

Yeah but he beat them both, TKO'd Rivera and convincingly beat Stann on points.

I like Blecher, he's a great fighter, I just think Mike is slightly better and will pick up the W. Which hopefully will give us chance to see Bisping smack talk his way to another No:1 contender spot or a fight against Silver.

I've been watching alot of videos from both sides in the build up to this fight and Bisping has been consistently talking about going back to his earlier more aggressive style where he would stop people by overwhelming them. I have my doubt that'll he do this but we'll see.

Belcher on the other hand has said more than once that he does not believe Bisping could stop him if he stood there with his chin in the air and took his best punch.. which is hilarious cos it plays into the pillow hands nickname some Americans have given Bisping, but Belcher should absolutely know he can be KO'd by one punch if it's the right punch.

This is a great fight in the making , whoever wins.

Nice Wuk Ariel

It can be a little frustrating to be a fan of Michael Bisping. Granted he performed very well against Chael Sonnen but lost to a wafer thin decision I believe Bisping should of had. 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.
