Bisping v Miller at 114?

Tough rebound fight for Bisping imo. Hard to call which way this goes.
Quote:

A middleweight bout between Michael Bisping (18-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) and Dan Miller, established contenders both desperately in need of a win, is likely to take place in May at UFC 114.

Multiple sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that UFC officials are working to sign the bout and that at least one competitor has agreed to the matchup.

If signed the fight would likely be part of the main card for UFC 114, which takes place May 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view.

As of Monday, though, bout agreements have not been distributed.

It'd be another solid addition to a card, though not officially announced, that's expected to feature Rashad Evans vs. Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Forrest Griffin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and John Hathaway vs. Diego Sanchez.

Both Bisping and Miller, who were both once on the verge of top title contention, look to rebound from recent losses.

Bisping's losses came to Dan Henderson (vicious knockout at UFC 100), and then after a rebound TKO win over Denis Kang at UFC 105, to Wanderlei Silva via close unanimous decision last month at UFC 110. Bisping thought he won the fight, but Silva knocked him down in the final 10 seconds of the fight to take the final third round on the judges' cards and the decision win (via scored of 29-28).

Prior to the recent 1-2 skid, "The Ultimate Fighter 3" winner's only loss came to Rashad Evans via razor-thin split decision at UFC 78 in 2007.

Meanwhile, Miller's two consecutive losses both came via unanimous decision to top contenders Chael Sonnen (UFC 98) and Demian Maia (UFC 109). Prior to the defeats, the former IFL middleweight champion went undefeated over a 10-fight span that included UFC victories over Rob Kimmons, Matt Horwich and Jake Rosholt in his first three UFC appearances.

Dan's wrestling will be tough for Bisping, I think. Dan won't want to stand and strike. Miller could easily control Bisping for long periods on the ground for the decision.

Rashad Evans hasn't really controlled a lot of people.

He prefers to stand up now, but if you watch his early fights especially on tuf when he fought as a h/w he was using his wrestling a lot. Imo Bisping is best against Jiu Jitsu guys who dont have knockout power, imo this is a great match up for bisping. If he doesnt have to be weary of a big punch then i think he can fight the fight he wants.

I may sound biased but im really not, i think stylistically this plays right into Bisping hands which is why i think it will be an easy fight for him.

Dan's wrestling is a lot better than Bispings. I think Mike might struggle, his wrestling didn't look great in recent fights imo.

Do you think Miller has the ability to keep him down tho? No offence to Dan miller but after watching the Maia fight and their "stand up battle" if you can call it that i think Bisping takes this fight out pointing him on the feet. When Miller or Bisping get the occasion take down i see it being stood back up again and Bisping doing the same again.

I didn't see all the Maia fight because my stream died. But I know Miller probably would have been more worried about being in Maias guard than he will be in Bispings. If he can keep Bisping down, and I think it's possible, he'll win. If Bisping continuously pops back up, he'll most likely win with better stand-up.
