cmon guys give the kid a break, every win cant be absolute domination. He won by TKO in the first round, it doesnt get much better than that

I agree that he didn't look too good. But he probably had smoe ring rust from not fighting for so long

can't argue with the incredible bisping flying knee. I would expect ugly fights from him here and there b/c like many fighters he grew up in a rough area brawling all the time.

I'd think he was cool anyway, since he has a normal looking girlfriend without bad plastic surgery or huge fake boobs.

I wasn't impressed by Bisping at all. Schaffer almost had him several times, and that fight could've gone either way.

haha shes not normal shes f-ucking hot

He's still young, and he faced a decent opponent on his first contract fight was on a PPV card, in the biggest show of his life. And someone also had a good point when they mentioend he hasn't fought for a while. I think he did pretty good considering the circumstancs, a first found tko is nothing to cry about.

Thank you. It was Michael's PPV debut...and he was giving Schafer the business in the striking exchanges. Bisping was landing some HEAVY shots everytime he threw something at Eric. That's what Bisping aims to do...is end it via KO or TKO. His striking may have been a tad sloppy, but that can be improved with time. He dominated the closing moments of that fight...don't forget that.

Considering that he won The Ultimate Fighter...there's HUGE expactations for Bisping. This was his first PPV fight man. Need I remind you, a win is a win is a win is a win.

Bisping impressed me in that fight. Was I the only one who thought Schaffer looked like a big heavyweight? Other people had to notice that. I thought Bisping handled the big guy great and I agree with the point that Schaffer is not a can at all. he needs another fight for sure in the UFC but I thought Bisping won in convincing fashion. His kicks were good(although Schaffer caught a few of them) and his punches were just sick. In the end, Bisping ****ed that guy up good and I wanna see who is going to beat him. Unfortunately we are prolly going to have to watch him fight a bunch of nobodies this year.

A groan of tedium escapes me...

Yeah that was great. I also loved "my ground and pound - not many people can defend it - I don't get to show it too much but... - there we go - bang bang bang - goodnight - GO HOME!"

Good stuff.
