Most of my negative reps are from saying Bisping would beat Stann by Decision.
I say it every time he's in discussion, but Bisping just has a bit of banter. He gives his opponents a slagging, that's about the height of it. It seems to only be American MMA fans who hate him, which I can draw down to insults not being thrown around quite as friendly as they are on this side of the world.
And yeah, Belcher was huge on here after the Palhares fight. The rankings were:- Weidman, Belfort and Belcher, which only a few throwing in Bisping.
Bisping is still improving. His main downside is his chin, which he needs to work to protect better. He is maybe the best kickboxer in UFC in technical skills, but with no knockout power of his own and getting rocked quite a lot when he faced a puncher, he will need to tighten up in that aspect if he wants to compete.
Okami Vs Bisping would be good, but I think Mike would take it. His grappling would allow him slip out, and in the stand up he'd land a lot of shots to edge out the round after being held for a bit. That's the next one to make though.
