While he is not my favorite MW I voted Love Him. I like the way he fights and I just finished re-watching the TUF 3 season and was not at all turned off by his attitude as some seemed to be. I think it will be fun to watch him as a coach.

i dont have anything against Bisping himself...BUT i do feel he is being heavily HYPED by the UFC..probablly in a attempt to capture some of the british market.
its not really his fault..but it sure is annoying.
he is a good fighter...not a great one..and i dont see him becomeing a champ.

I gotta go with I love him. On TUF I wanted him to win, and to be honest I have no idea what people are talking about when they say he is too into himself. I've never heard anything unreasonable from him and also, I want some other people, besides from Brazil, Canada or the U.S. to do well in this game. In the middle weight division, I don't think he will be able to beat Franklin, but he will put on an exciting fight for sure!

I like the guy a lot. He was a favorite of mine on TUF, he's always been a fun fighter to watch, and I enjoy listening to his interviews. I know he got a lot of hate from the Hamill fight, I would never stick up for his actions or the result, but...whatever. I guess it is what it is. I think he's been looking great at his new weight, I want to see him get some harder competition, and hopefully he can fight somewhere other than England, it's getting old.

Ohh another Bisping thread!

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.

/\ True say, he gets a lot of unnecessary slack, people misunderstand his sarcasm or they hear something and make a big deal out of it when its nothing!

Its mainly due to the fact that he's British and getting a lot of hype and press and people just need to pick on little things without realising they actually have no reason to hate!

Bisping is a funny guy and a mans man, he has been improving and while the hype and press understandably might get to some people you have to realise that's not his fault, he just happens to be the best MMA fighter from the UK and if the UFC want to make an impact they need to have home grown guys doing well and becoming 'big names'. I want him to keep winning! he's still got many years left and should keep improving.

I guess you know I voted 'love him' (no homo) lol, him and Rampage would be great guys to out drinking with.
