It's odd but every UFC they had in the UK or in Europe for that matter didn't excite me that much. And it isn't the fact that the fights are being held there, it's because it's on Spike TV for free. For some really odd reason I don't get as hyped when I see them on Spike and as excited.

But back to the Hamill vs Bisping II, I hope they hold it in the US and put it on PPV.

I swear I must be the only person who prefers to see the figts on PPV than for free on Spike.

It would not surprise me at all. Dana is trying to build a fan base in the UK and Bisping is the key to that. Bisping is waaaaaaay bigger in the UK than Hammil is in the USA. I'm sure Dana could care less about the perception of another UK based fight for Bisping being unfair to Hammil and just wants another big gate for the fight.

It shouldn't matter were the rematch happens, I hope it does happen in the UK and then have Bisping lose. Hamill has the skills to beat Bisping, he should have won last time and I don't mean by decision.

The only reason I enjoy watching UFC events that are in Ireland or the UK is because it will be air free on Spike.

I want it to be in England again, and I want Hamill to come out to Born in the U.S.A. again...that really cracked me up. And guys, whether he is getting the reception he deserves or not, it's not like he can hear it anyway, and I don't mean that to be rude, it actually works as an advantage. WAR HAMILL!

You're not the only one brother. I'd much rather pay $40 than have to sit through constant commercial breaks on spike. It's hard to get into a fight when they are breaking away during everything except the fight itself.

On the Bisping-Hamill fight, it's the least they should do after Hamill got completely robbed in the last fight. I think Hamill should get to fight in the U.S. as well.

why do they only book bisping to fight when their in the uk? i doubt anyone else has the privelage of fighting in their home country every fight. (except the americans of course, but thats because the ufc is an american company)

anyway, i think the second fight is going to be completly different from the first. this time round hammil isnt going to test his standup, hes gonna go straight for the takedown. bisping doesnt really have good takedown defence, so this fight will test both fighters ground games. i can see hammil blanketing a victory, or he could get a tko if his ground n pound has improved. there is a chance bisping could get a submission, but i doubt it.

i give this fight 70/30 to hammil.

btw, you guys really need to let this bisping hate go. he didnt score the fight, its the judges who made the bullshit decision. sure his comments were disrespectful, but he said them in the heat of the moment. bisping had a grudge against hammil because hammil called him out over the internet. he's apologised since then, whether it was sincere or not he still manned up and said sorry.
