I think Vitor takes a 48-47.
Rock is a better fighter than Bisping and has a decent chin, but I think Belfort will use his speed and explosiveness to control the fight until he starts to lose gas.

Vitor 1st round KO.

Rockhold will go before Bisping did, and when Bisping fights Rockhold, Bisping wins.

Rockhold just isn't on Vitors level. He has a decent ground game, but his striking is overrated. It's not bad but his flashy strikes aren't that effective. He threw a lot of cute spinning kicks and switch kicks at Jacare, none of which landed.

And people that think Vitor gas haven't seen Vitor fight in years...

No offense, but I sincerely doubt that.
Bisping is probably the most overrated figher in the entire organization. Rockhold would easily TKO him IMO.

I am no Rockhold fan.

But surprised to see so many say Vitor, and Vitor easily. Rockhold is actually the favorite on the books. I think Vitor is a tall task for ROckhold for his first UFC fight and it being in Brazil. But other than those factor I think it is a real tough fight to call skillwise. Vitor DOES gas after a round or 2. I don't think 185 is the right weight for him now a days. Rockhold has a decent chance of even stealing the first or second with dumb kicks and running. And I think he defiantly can outlast him as it goes deeper.

I'm not really picking Rockhold, but just surprised how many are taking Vitor in a cakewalk.

Was this supposed to be an insult?
I didn't mean any offense by my post, I'm just being honest. I just don't think very highly of Bisping as a fighter. The UFC and his fans across the Atlantic try to hype him up as a contender and top five middleweight but he's really just the Cheick Kongo (before his decline and subsequent departure) of the middleweight division who will never get into the VIP room or that higher cloud. I guarantee you he will be beating the Stann's and Belcher's of the division and losing to just about any elite opponent he faces.

As I said before I think Rockhold will lose but I don't think he will look bad in the process. He's a solid 6-8 fighter, just behind Anderson, Weidman, Jacare, Belfort, and Okami and I think he'll be a solid addition to the UFC for a while.
