There's a good chance Bisping can outpoint Dan. If he tko/kos him that would be pretty surprising.

I like em both but I still think that Henderson is a better all rounder. Saying that Bisping has proved he's got quite the chin and good cardio, presuming that's still a fact he could inch out a victory but I think it's unlikely.

I origianlly picked Hendo by first round KO. But now I think this fight is going to look alot like Hendo/Franklin. Hendo will overhwhelm Bisping early, but Bisping is a scrapper and will survive. As the fight goes on, Bisping's cardio will help him start to land effective strikes with his hand speed and movement.

I got Hendo by a close decision.

Yah I'm an ol schooler so I usually pick the old kats except for Coleman vs Shogun...lolz! For this one I want Bisping to win so he can fight Anderson. How fun would that fight be. We've already seen Hendo vs The Spider. He has what three or four fights left.
- Bisping
- Demian
- GSP *Super Fight* to end his career.

Think it'll be a similar match Silva had years ago against Lee Murray if Bisping doees it make it.

Enjoy...

To be honest I think this match can steal the show. No title on the line, but a shot at one is. Both men are not really "veterans" yet of the UFC, but Hendo is a more experienced fighter. I think this is the stage where Bisping will really break out and become a top star in the UFC. But I think Hendo will also have a great chance of winning this.

I think it will get one of the three awards(probably FoTN)

This is the biggest fight of Bispings career IMO. Henderson is a great wrestler, STRONG, aggresive striker to a fault BUT he has a chin of granite which allows him to do so.

I cant see any way that Bisping would finish him, but he could very well out point him. Bisping had better pull off a better version of the Leban fight again Hendo because he is way more dangerous.

If Bisping can keep it off the ground for most the fight I think this fight is his. Yes Hendo will get some takedowns, but I think Bisping is very strong and smart on his feet. I think he could breakdown Hendo enough to get some good shots on him and even if he doesn't finish it he could get the decision

Hendo has incredible wrestling skills and a big right hand. Bisping has incredible takedown defense and pin point striking...hmmmm. Its going to be an interesting fight that no one can really predict. I can only imagine Hendo taking Bisping down...Bisping getting straight back to his feet and landing a barrage of strikes...repeat. Its going to be down to what the judges hold in highest regard. If they think taking a fighter down scores over strikes then hendo takes it, striking scores, then Bisping walks away with the win.
