Any fight with Wand in it is exciting. They should bring back stomps for this match. I know most of you on here would love to see Bisping get KOndo'd.

I just can't see Bisping winning.

Franlkin is twice the fighter Bisping is and he even had trouble with the "stick and move" stratagy. It is only a matter of time before Wandy catches him with one ethier KO's him or rocks him and smells the blood.

Wandy 2nd round ko.

Even better, full Pride rules so Bisping can get knees dropped on his head and soccer kicked when he's down as well as getting stomped. It would be nice to see him take an even worse beating than the one Sakuraba took in his first fight against Wandy.

Chin is failing ? How do you figure ? Looked pretty solid against chuck !...so he got KO'd by Rampage and Hendo, those are some of the heaviest hands in MMA

The Rampage that fought in pride was nothing more than a street punk and trained with guys who didnt have half his ability, he is a very dif. fighter today.

By the sound of Pissbings mouth he didnt learn much from the hendo fight.

Chuck at 1 time had some very heavy hands but they seemed to have disappeared back in 2006 since he hasnt had a KO victory since then.

Pillow hands, as in, he doesn't hit hard for his size?

I never know if that term is being used figuratively or literally.

Two terms I hate "Pillow hands" and he landed a "Lucky Punch."

Neither exist except in the minds of haters and people that like to discredit wins, both are lame.

The most specific definition of pillow hands, as I understand it, is someone who's big and powerful but, with that in mind, doesn't hit hard for their size and power.

I do think there's such a thing as a lucky punch; it's that easy for even champs to drop their guard for that crucial quarter second.

But yeah, both labels are go-to for people drinking the haterade.

Never thought Chuck was much of a fighter, UFC LHW div. was pretty weak when he ran the show, Very sloppy striking, next to no ground game, next to no TDD( but a great chin that allowed him to take punches while he climbed back to his feet).....IMO he has always been a one trick pony, Heavy hands and a iron chin. THink he still has the power, its the chin thats gone(goes down in a strong breeze anymore)

They say the power is the last thing you lose.
