I have never really liked either fighter. However Leben seems to have grown up a little and i still for whatever reason don't like Bisping. So i'm gonna be rooting for Leben.


As far as who i think is going to win. I'm still kind of on the fence.

I think it ends up 1 of 2 ways.

A) Bisping plays it smart and moves around and does alot of counter striking and keeps things very technical and gets the UD (would be very hard for him to lose a decision in england anyways.)

B) Bisping gets caught up with the energy from the crowd and tries to put on a show and stays in the pocket and tries to bang with Leben and gets knocked out.

I suppose that means all non American fighters fighting in the US have an automatic bias against them also?
Brits hate crap judges and couldnt give two craps if their home fighter loses as long as he fought well and lost fairly.

The British fans do your right but lets face it most people get a hometown advantage in the scoring unless its lopsided. And sometimes like in the case of Hammill even when it is lopsided they still favor the hometown boy.

It wasnt a shot at the British mate it was just a statement of fact. Not all Americans in amaerica will get the advantage but an American fighting anyone else in his actually state or town of origin wold probably get an advantage in the scoring aswell. Its not allways the case but it does happen bro.

From what i know about boxing (and thats not alot, apart from its usually a snooze-fest) it happens alot in boxing. MMA not so much, i think some judges just score things in a strange way. I dont like that a guy who takes someone down and deos nothing gets more credit than someone on his back pulling off submission attempts. but thats a whole different debate.

I think Bisping will be too quick for Leben in this bout, but both fighters should put in a good display. I'm not counting Leben out though.

how do you get hometown advantage in the scoring when the one British judge gives the decision to Hamill and the two USA judges to give it Bisping?

Spot on vexred, I was just about to say that.

I am getting sick of all this unprovoked hate for bisping. he has made 1 very very little mistake by supposedly being disrespectful to matt hamill in which he wasn't and now everyone thinks he is a piece of ****.

I think the Americans just don't like seeing a British person doing well in the UFC, I know its a bold statement but i just cant see why else you can hate him.

I don't think thats true, Bisping was pretty popular in the US before the Hamill fight. He did act like a prick after the fight but most fighters have had bad moments in their careers. What made it worse was that Hamill looked like a sad puppy or something after the fight, add to that the fact he's deaf and Bisping was in for some hate for sure.

i wouldnt say its unprovoked hate. The way he handled himself after the Hammil fight is the equivalant to Karo's appearence of TUFF LOL

Anyways i dont hate him, I did think he was a dick for a while but i enjoy watching him fight.

Hammill was a dick also. But people dont hate on him. Possibly because he lost a decision which most people WANTED him to win? Possibly because he's deaf and nobody likes to hate on a deaf guy? I dont know. But the super hate for Bisping is over top i think.
