I used to not like Wandy (I pretty much hated all the Pride guys lol) but something about seeing him lose so much in the UFC has kind of made me want to see him get back to his old ways (same with Crocop; I want to see them both start winning). Bisping is not a slouch though and if this fight goes the distance I think he takes it. I'm gonna be looking for a surprise early takedown from Bisping. This is definitely a close fight and I could see it going either way.

Bisping training with Rampage to prep for Wandy is going to do him about as much good as Kenny Florian's training with GSP leading up to his fight with BJ. Sure Rampage has a ton of experience fighting Wandy, problem is Bisping's skillset is completely different from Rampage's, and he doesn't and won't be able to learn the tools that Rampage used to beat Wandy. Rampage has a damn solid chin and one hit KO punching power, and that's what he used to beat Silva. Bisping's lack of punching power is pretty well known and his chin probably isn't that great these days since even Kang got a knockdown on him.

Which isn't to say he doesn't have a chance, he does, and a surprisingly good one I think if he plays it smart. He'll basically need to jab & run Wandy to score points and throw in some takedowns and lay & pray. Wandy isn't going to submit him off his back and he doesn't have the best takedown defence either so it should be possible for Bisping to get him down at least once.

Of course all it takes is Wandy connecting once and it's all done. Even if it's not a Hendo style KO, Silva knows how to finish guys when he gets them in trouble, he's not going to be wasting time playing Twister like Kang, he'll be ****-choking Bisping and punching his head in like he did with Jardine.

I agree to a degree with what you say but Bisping isn't training with rampage to just knock Silva out. He says it is to help deal with power shots and there isn't many people with much more power than Rampage!

I like how Bisping is planning on evening the score with Wanderlei in the Wandy vs. Wolfslair saga. Wandy's taking on a whole gym!

As far as the fight goes, I was skeptical about Wandy in this fight but I'm pretty confident he takes this one now. I certainly can see Bisping pointing himself to a win but I'm not so sure he can avoid that power for three rounds. And as some have already said, Wandy may be on a losing streak but he didn't exactly look bad in any of those fights. I see this being a lot like the Franklin fight but Wandy actually finishing his opponent this time. Or at least I hope.

I see this one going just like Franklin/Silva. Franklin wanted to go in, land his shots and get out and still got hit hard a few times and won a close fight. I don't think Bisping can pull the same game plan without his head ending up in the 5th row somewhere.

I can see Wandy catching a low leg kick and knocking his head off.
I have to give Bisping the benefit of the doubt. He has great footwork and is extremely strong IMO. However, Wanderlei is much more experienced and will def. be focused, which means lethal.

Bisping is funny when he talks trash sometimes, and this was one of those times. "Punched in the gob" LMAO!

I can completely see Bisping taking this.
I'll have to disagree with you.
Let's be honest. Silva has faced tough competition: Chuck, Jardine, Rampage and Franklin. And one more thing, a very important one: he fought at LHW. Wanderlei isa small LHW. He had a good fight with Chuck and Franklin and has estroyed Jardine.
Him going back to MW should show us some old schoold Wanderlei: he should be faster, more accurate, better cardio. If he gets in close with Bisping, i hope he knocks him out. I am getting tired of Bisping's big mouth. He was humble after the disaster with Hendo, then he beats a very tired Kang and his big mouth comes back to haunt us.
I hope Silva shuts him up.

Eeking out a descision does not amount to “crush” and Bisping’s only chance at winning would be by descision.

Unless Rampage is going to “lend” Bisping his power I don’t see any chance of Mike putting Wandy down.

Yeah, deal with as in "don't take the punches on the chin!" and "run away! run away!"

Is Bisping the same fighter that fought Leben.. NO i think he has realised his short comings and with Hendo doing him a major favour by KOing him has made a mental change to his game and will be more aggressive.
I wish both fighters the best and truly may the most deserving on the night win.

i agree with this, although as everyone knows it only takes one shot from wandy

i think bisping is probably close to the peak of his powers, unlike wandy

i think its a very interesting fight
