Yeah, I was too but there was a good chunk of folk on here who thought Belcher was a contender.

There was but that doesn't mean Bisping knocked off a top contender. He just beat up an overhyped Belcher. I guess he stuck it to the people who pick against him just because he is Michael Bisping, but it didn't show much to the people who understood that Belcher beating Palhares wasn't some amazing feat.

Dammit Belcher... Now I'm eating my words and they are so bitter.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

Bisping is the man. I want him to fight Rockhold (after he beats Belfort) I am avoiding Bisping Okami because they both my favourites. I could see either one taking the fight, though Bisping is tough to keep down, so I actual favor him in this because he takes Okami out of his comfort zone

I'm all for Bisping vs Cung Le. Why not?

Because there are higher ranked fighters who make more sense for Bisping

Let's be honest though. Bisping is probably 4 wins away from a title shot. Not even close at the moment right? Why not? Beating Okami isn't going to put him at the doorstep again either, not right now. Why not fight Le then someone higher ranked? It's a good style matchup. Le has name value. Why not? IMO it's smarter for Bisping to fight Le then it is Okami right now.

I think he could be 2-3 fights away from a title fight, if he was to fight and beat Okami who is the 3rd ranked MW that sets him up with a potential fight with Rockhold/Belfort winner, or even Costa/Jacare winner. I don't think Le makes sense. Give Le, Lombard

I disagree, I don't think Bisping will ever get a title shot and I think it will take alot for him to get in that position. I like the idea of him vs Wandy 2 as well. I just figured Cung Le vs Bisping would have the name value and an entertaining style matchup.
I don't think there is any win out there that puts Bisping 2 fights away. IMO fighting Okami is a bad idea since it would mean more later on. Winning it now still puts him a long ways away.

Only just seen the fight.

Bispings punching is lovely. I don't care about the power. His technique and combos are fun to watch. I've said many times, I've *never* been bored watching a Bisping fight.
