Love him, I think he's a classy guy and a humble fighter. I really admired him when he said he wanted to take a couple of more fights before getting a title shot... and I'm rambling. But watch his video blogs, they're hilarious!

The hate for Bisping is ridiculous and really gets my back up

The guy is about as genuine as it gets,he appreciates all the support he gets back home and never takes it for granted.

I do agree that he is a little short from being champion material,but only slightly.People are too quick to knock him and i for one hope he does pull it off and shut everyone up.

He isn't a fvourite of mine by any means,just think he deserves a fairer rep.

Rant over

Well Bisping is one of very few
(or the only one?) representing my country in the UFC, so obviously i'm going to be a tad bit biased here. However, fellow country man or not, I really like the geezer. He seems to be getter better and better in each fight and is the type of bloke I see myself going for a beer with because he is so damn funny.

I would like to see him move back up to light heavyweight, even though he has looked sharp as a middleweight recently. He seems to be tearing through the division and I don't think it's unlikely he'll beat Franklin or....even a certain insy binsy Spider..

I think he is an all over mediocre fighter. I have never seen anything from him that warrants the kind of love people are showing him. Personally, I think hes a nice guy. As a fighter I think he is boring and unimpressive.

Evil will always triumph over good...

Because good is dumb.

I really like the guy, he tends to get a lot of hate on, but the numbers are showing otherwise, his move to MW has been a really good career choice.

I hope to see him fighting soon.

Don't really love him. I never root for the guy, I hardly get excited for his fights.

Don't really hate him, either. I think he's a solid fighter, who found the right weight class for him.

I'll go with the don't care option.

I've said it before, and I'm going to say it again, Bisping is a class guy. He gets a lot of hate around here because people seem to think White is giving him an easy ride. It's true to a degree, he was an ex TUF fighter and he's the best British guy, so he's obviously worth a lot to the UFC as an asset, but that's not Bisping's fault. He always wants to fight the best guys that's why he started out in light heavy despite being a natural middleweight.

I hope the UFC gives him a big fight in the states against somebody like Maia. It doesn't even matter if he wins or loses the fight. Losing gracefully and coming back stronger without so much of the pressure to keep winning could be a good thing.
Well said.

With the fuzz about Fight for the troops on a little cooldown, let's see if we can get a little more talk on the count before TUF finale.

How do you think Bisping's striking compares to the rest of the division, namely Henderson, Marquardt, Cote and even Franklin (though he's at 205 now).
