Bisping is easily a top 10 MW fighter... Imo top 5. With a little more power and striking defense he would be nearly unbeatable in this division as he has amazing cardio and very good wrestling/take down defense.

Only reason he's top 10 is because his opponents are either not in the top 10 or are barely there at #10. Stann and Belcher are the only two top 10 fighters he's ever beat, and he looked terrible both times. You give him Belfort, Okami, Rockhold, etc and he loses every time.

Yes the Okami that folds once he isn't able to dominate his fights and fades in later rounds.

Bisping has superior striking to Okami's one dimensional jab and has great takedown defense as we saw in his fight with Sonnen. Add in his far superior cardio and I actually see Bisping beating Okami.

Do you say every fight that goes decision is terrible? This fight and the Stann fight he's looked solid. Picked his shots landed consistently. He doesn't have KO power, he can't do much about that.

Bisping did everything right props to him. I don't want to take anything away from his performance but I must say that I don't get what ALan was doing. He was timid and flat and the guy that fought Akiyama 5 years ago or even Palhares two fights ago..... I would never think these two Alan's were the same person. I question if he really posses what it takes after seeing willing to do as little as he actually attempted tonight to ever get himself back over the hump. Good on Bisping tonight though, unfortunate accident to end the fight but he performed well. Oh yeah and F bisping!!!

Lombard sucked though.

I think Bisping would beat Okami too and I loves me some thunder.

Unfortunate ending to the fight, but it was irrelevant in my opinion. Bisping out classed Belcher. Belcher has a solid ground game, but he didn't count on Bisping being the better wrestler and stuffing his take downs quite easily.

Bisping looked good tonight. He has no power, but that makes it more impressive to me. A lot of guys having average stand up, but a lot of power. If they didn't have such heavy hands, you can tell they wouldn't be as successful. Bisping has gotten to where he is with his technique. He didn't have heavy hands to fall back on. If he did, he'd be an absolute monster.

I've been discrediting Belcher for a long time saying that aspects of his game are overrated and getting irritated with certain people who say he's an elite fighter that would school Bisping and give Anderson Silva a tough fight. While it feels good to be right about Bisping being the better fighter and proving it tonight, I got to say that Belcher at least stayed in there and took every strike Bisping threw and didn't seem to get hurt at all. He's tougher than I thought he was and I hope to see him continue to improve. I'm done arguing with people about his skill set and where he is among the UFC rankings. Tonight proves that he still has some work to do and I'd just be a broken record if I continue to bring up his flaws and searched for holes. I'm thinking we're probably unanimous on where he is now in MMA and have come to the realization that he still needs to improve more if he wants to be elite. Fortunately for him, he's younger than Bisping and has time to improve.

Still, I'd be lying if I said it didn't feel good to be right. What can I say? I'm human. Haha.

He often does fade, but more importantly he folds when he isn't able to dominate his opponent with his wrestling or jab.

Funny you use the Lombard fight as an example when Lombard nearly pulled off the win nearly taking Okami's head off and out wrestling him in the 3rd round when yes Okami folded and had to survive till the bell to win the fight...

I used to think Bisping would get 30-27'd by Okami......until the Chael fight.
