An Englishmans View On Michael Bisping
I started watching UFC at UFC 66 when Bisping beat Schafer. Bisping was then the only brit fighting in the UFC and he was the man.. He then went on to beat Sinosic, Hammill, McCarthy, Day, Leben and Kang, with loses to Evans and Henderson.
I have now come to the conclusion that Bisping just isnt good enough for the top contenders in the division. His 3 loses are against top contenders, Evans, Henderson and Silva, his biggest wins have come against a poor Dennis Kang and a dodgy decision against Hammil. He doesnt have knock out power, he doesnt have a great submission game, i really cant see how he is ever going to beat a top contender?
The cycle is just going to keep repeating itself for Michael. He beats an average fighter, Joe Rogan calls it the best fight of Bispings career, he then goes on to fight a top 10 fighter and loses. Cycle starts all over again.
When i watch fighters like Dan Hardy and Paul Daley i have confidence in them, and really believe they can win their fights (maybe not Hardy v GSP tho). With Bisping i now just watch and prey he makes it through each round.
Im not just saying this because of his loss last night, because i actually thought it was a very close fight, but not once did i think he was ever going to finish the fight, my only hope for him was a decision.
I just had to get the above off my chest.. In every Bisping fight prior to last night i have been right behind him, cheering him on and celebrating his wins, and have been gutted when he lost.. Last night i wasnt bothered..
I know their is alot of hate for Bisping, and alot of people will say i told you so, but i am english, and have been a big fan of Bisping, but i am now tired of him. Hardy, Daley, Etim and Pearson are much better prospects for us brits now.
