May as well. Bisping is one of my favorites, but he hasn't exactly beaten too many big name fighters. Franklin still has somewhat of a name and I think most people forget/don't even know he lost on Fuel a few months ago.

Very good fight, can't really call it at all since they are very equal in skill. Gonna be interesting to see what happens.

Forget? Anyone watched him smack his face straight to the mat at the end isn't forgetting that anytime soon.

Bisping would take it.

Franklin's Belfort and Le KO's were hardly big power strikes, the super optimist in me reckons Bisping could finally land that KO punch he's been trying for.

I've been wanting to see this fight for a LONG time. I gotta go with Franklin. Franklin is the more versatile striker and has more power. Bisping is slighly more technical but nothing worth noting. They both get rocked in pretty much every fight they're in so it's hard to say who has the better chin. They have 4 common opponents. Bisping is 1-3 against them, rightfully0 0-4, while Franklin is 2-2. All signs point to Franklin.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Bisping will very rarely stray away from the one-two (jab-straight). Granted he's good at it, but that's all he's known for. He has trouble cutting off his opponents because he is so limited to straight punches.

Franklin on the otherhand uses jabs, straights, hooks and kicks. And he also uses angles very well.

How in the hell was Le's KO not a power shot???

He landed a flush hook directly on an exposed chin.

Good fight. Of course I would love to see Franklin get the win, but it won't be easy. It would be a hell of a stand up battle.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
