I think the UFC hype train has blinded a few guys to thinking that Mike is in the same league as Maia.
I dont know about Maia being better to be in another league than Bisping, but i can sure agree on Bisping being overrated.
No exciting fight whatsoever, except when he had a retard blocking knees with his arms and asking for more.
He is just a big MW, hyped by TUF, and decently rounded, with good strategy and all around standup.
Is he in top MW contention? for sure. Is he going to beat Maia? Its a close fight for sure.
Maia, lets not jump too quick to conclusions.
Sick grappling, oh yes. Anything else? Id like to see more fights. Also, dont take for granted he can take Bisping down, or even get close.
Leben, despite sucking and being a crappy fighter, still can be given credit to usually get the fight going, and Bisping completly closed him to a point where Leben was completly pissed off and was giving free shots..
Bisping doesnt give a crap if its boring, he wants to keep that close to perfect record
