The Cliche Upset of 75 Thread
Who is going to be the upset of the evening of the televised fights? I have to say Hamill over Bisping. No, Hamill is not a great fighter and yes Bisping is a great striker but I am not writing off Hamill. From Bisping we have seen brutal wins over Christian (the cigar smoking fighter), Ross Pointon who appears to be a can over in Cage Rage as well, Josh Haynes...well he's riding bulls on a reality show on CMT now, Eric Schaffer...yep, and finally Elvis Sinos....whatever.
I would put Seth P. over all of these opponents and its one of the only fights we have seen from Hamill but he won it (all be it from cutting and lay-n-pray) But he won it. He also took so many shots that it sickened me which is what he can expect from Bisping.
People want to say Matt's untelevised fight against Rex Holomon was a display of sloppy striking....sloppy like Bisping getting caught with a vicious Elvis knee and almost getting KOed? Matt's striking looked pretty powerful to me.
Bottom line, I like Bisping and I am not a huge Hamill fan but this is the upset thread. I can see Matt Hamill taking this one. The media and fans and the hometown crowd have put the pressure on Bisping to win. Matt is the underdog...like he has always been his whole life. Who is more comfortable coming into this fight?
I pick Matt Hamill for upset of the night. You can debate this fight or choose another fight for upset of the night but please be detailed in your analysis.
