Im not an all out Hater of Bisping but anyone who thinks he is going to run through Leben is mentally handicapped. Leben is a solid as rock fighter who was can take a beating and keep coming. I dont see Bisping taking this to the ground and Leben has mad power. The only way I see Bisping winning is VIA Decision.
I just think this is the biggest test for Bisping to date I mean the only tough competition he faced has beaten him. (Even if Hammill didnt "win" the fight he still BEAT him just like Rashad.
That being said goodluck to Bisping I hope he does fantastic things but im gonna be in the NIA screamin for Leben to derail this train for Bispings own good so he doesnt get to caught up in his own overinflated hype.

Wow im a little surprised at the responses, form the threads i normally read everyone seems to hate Bisping. I seriously believe he will walk through Leben but the thing is once he does that the haters will say well hes not a top 5 m/w so it doesn't matter etc...........
Bisping looks good at 185. I'll be curious as to how he stands up against the contenders in the division. I'd like to see him fight Marquardt, Henderson(at 205 or 185), Lutter, Grove, Anderson Silva, Rich Franklin (at 205 or 185). He does look good, but he really needs to fight (and soundly beat) a contender. Until then his train is a Tonka. Not saying he couldn't; just saying he hasn't.
Bisping and Leben are 2 of my favorite fighters. I honestly don't feel Leben is Bispings biggest test though, I think Hamill was. I also feel Hamill would have beaten Leben. That being said I tend to look at things in their most simple form, Occam's Razor if you will. Leben has been knocked out with no problem before, Bisping has never been knocked out = Bisping wins. Call it stupid but it works.
