Yeah the hate Bisping gets is over the top but I think it's more casual fans than serious ones cos thats all they know him for.

Hamill was way more of a dick on TUF and for a while afterwards but Bisping didn't look all sad and helpless and isn't deaf so it didn't provoke as much hate as Bispings stupid comments did. Thats life I suppose.

I was wondering how Leben would react if he lands a couple of decent shots on Bisping, and they dont affect him? surely his confidence would drain pretty quickly, and i think his power is the only chance he has in this fight. any thoughts?

I don't know I think he has better wrestling aswell but it's pretty close. He's also been in there with some tough competition so I don't think it will faze him too much.

The more I think about this fight the more I'm really looking forward to It, I think it will be pretty competitive and for a change I don't really care who wins.

Normally I can't help but pick sides but in this case I like both fighters without being a huge fan of either so I can just sit back and enjoy the fight.

I've just been reading that Leben is cutting alot of weight for this bout. Which could work against him in the later rounds. Also if he's coming in bigger than usual, he's surely going to be that little bit slower than usual too. And that could prove costly against Bisping, whose combinations have looked pretty quick and sharp since he's dropped to middleweight

I think Bisping will win this. He's the better striker and Grappler IMO. Leben is good but not as good as Bisping to me.

Now Bisping fans stop being butt hurt about everything.

Bisping Haters just cut it out he had a bad moment when he trashed a guy who was a complete dick to him.

Lol. I just watched the Bisping - Leben in - depth video on the official site. Why do they put subtitles on what Bisping's saying? Are americans really so dumb they don't get the British accent? He he.

Anyone know what time this will be starting Live American Eastern time? I'd like to hunt for a stream while it's playing live.

Americans do that whenever someone foreign is speaking, no matter how clear their english is, it's pretty weird.

Leben is gonna KTFO Bisping.
