I would hardly say that Anderson Silva knocking you out counts as no problem. Silva is the best striker in the division and hits damn hard as well. Even then it was n't like it took one punch to put Leben down. No one else has managed to put Chris's lights out. If Bising were to face Silva I think he would be KO'd as well.

Bisping also hasn't fought anyone with the technical acumen to put him away with strikes. Rashad has power, but is a neophyte in terms of technique. I wouldn't say that Leben is Bisping's toughest fight to date either, but he has a clear advantage in power where he can finish the fight at virtually any moment.

I believe Bisping to be the more fluid striker of the two, a lot more durable as well, but Leben has that fight ending pop in both of his hands. All he needs to do is connect and Bisping isn't likely to recover after getting lit up, especially early in the fight where I favor Leben to be at his most dangerous peak.

In other words, don't bank on Bisping knocking Leben out.

Suizida tried to tell me that Jardine's Techno viking monkey style was too much for Vera's overhyped skills but i was to busy nuthugging to listen to 'the truth'

Dude what are you smoking the ONLY person to EVER knock Leben out was Anderson Silva who has insane power and he only knocked Leben otu after several flush punches to the jaw and 2 or three knees.

Bisping doesnt have power anywhere near that of Anderson Silva and to state that he does is ludicrouis. Leben has one of the best jaws in the entirer UFC the dude can take some brutal shots and the proceed to KO his opponent just ask Terry Martin and Mike Swick.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Bisping has looked better and better in each of his fights at 185 lbs. I think he will beat Leben on Saturday. Bisping is a better all round fighter, better in every aspect of the game than Leben.
I predict a GnP victory towards the end of round 1.
Im sure when Bisping wins Saturday he will get no credit for it though, and we we still have the haters saying ''Bisping hasn't beaten anybody'', or ''Bisping hasn't been tested yet''. But Bisping and his fans are used to that.

WAR BISPING!!

Favourite Fighters:

Georges St. Pierre
Anderson Silva
Shogun Rua
Minotauro Nogueira
Michael Bisping
Lyoto Machida
Fabricio Werdum
Rich Franklin
Thiago Alves
Urijah Faber
Rashad Evans
Rampage Jackson
Patrick Cote
Jon Fitch

I don't know about that. If Bisping beats out leben he'll be doing what a number of contenders haven't been able to. After beating leben he should finally be in contention.

I seriously doubt Bisping will finish leben. On the feet they are about equal from a technical perspective but Leben is miles ahead in the power department. And that's before he was in his current (bigger and leaner) condition.

Bisping is ahead on the ground and if he has any kind of a brain that's where he'll take it and keep it.

I'm indifferent to both bisping and Leben. I like both fighters but a loss for either wouldn't break my heart. This IS bisping's first real test and I might like to see him pass it.

People were saying that Jason Day was Bisping's first test but soon changed their tunes when Bisping steam rollered through him.

Im sure Bisping will look to take it to the ground. I think he will take Leben down with ease and GnP out the victory.

Jason Day? Seriously people called that a test?

I would have called that an undercard fight that somehow made it on the overcard.

if he wins that's probably how it will go tho. He'll GnP his way to a decision

So by that you mean he will completely destroy Leben by beating him standing then take him down and ground and pound him out. Glad you got confidence in the Count.
