btw for those who are gunna say bisping has no jitz to start with, hes been training jitz since the age of 14
I thought he started at age 8 and quit at about 16. And then started doing kickboxing.

Bisping trained in traditional jujitsu not BJJ when he was younger I think. He only started training BJJ for MMA.

I'd still probably give the edge in Jitz to him even though I've seen Leben work a decent rubber guard before. Slight edge in wrestling goes to Leben although Bisping did ok against Rashad so it's only slight. Standing I think everones calling it the same way. Technical edge and kicks go to Bisping but Lebens got more power and a better chin.

I'm liking this matchup TBH and I don't know who wins it.

From a personal viewpoint I'm on kinda on the fence aswell, I like both fighters but I'm not a ridiculously big fan of either. Just gutted I'm not gonna be there.

The fight has the potential to be very exciting, the reason i see Bisping winning by majority is that he is going to fight a fast paced intelligent striking game, leben will get him down i have no doubt but Bisping has a underrated ground game and will outwork Leben and Leben will get fatigued that much quicker, i dont see Bisping intimdated like some others have inferred i just see him fighting his fight and not getting into stupid wild exchanges where Leben could KO him.

Stefan Struve
Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
Cub Swanson
Kim Dong - Hyun.

Heheh, at least I've got an excuse, since English isn't my first language. But there's no excuse when writing names wrong, apart from incidentally pressing the wrong buttons, but when it happens consistently on the other hand..
