ssjd has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Body shots

I think were all in agreement that Miachel Bisping didn't win his fight against Matt Hamill Last night, but he was certainly given every opportunity to.

As Rogan constantly pointed out when Hamill was chasing Bisping around the octagon his hands were down. Fair enough, but when the two got close Hamill would bring his hands up, way up, sometimes they were even above his head. A couple hundred shots to Hamill's body would have been enough to convince me that he won that fight, not throwing combinations to the head that were blocked and had no effect.
It's sad that Bisping's trainer(s)(that guy with the fisherman's hat, I forgot his name) didn't point this out and abused Hamill's body the way Kongo did Cro Cop's, with a couple of broken ribs.

Yeah, there's not a lot of guys who utilize body shots as much as they should.

I was wondering why Bisping wasn't throwing any straight kicks or big shots to the body. Maybe he thought he was losing on the cards (he would have been correct to think so) or maybe he was trying to avoid being taken down by staying on the outside. I still think he should have attacked that open midsection
