Michael Bisping too small for LHW Division?

You guys think Bisping looks a lil small to be a LHW?

IMO Tito would kik his ass cause of his strenth, Rampage would be all over him, Jardine would prolly take his strikes and KO him, and of course he would stand no chance with Liddell.

I think he should move down to the middle weight division IMO.

I think Bisping is perfect at 205. I would try and ad more but you just stated that Bisping would get beat by opponents...but didn't give any reasons why. What are the two smileys at the bottom supposed to mean? Are they two friends of yours that agree Bisping should move down? At any rate, they have a nice smile.

A groan of tedium escapes me...

So he would move down in weight to get dominated by sylvia/swick/leben/etc? He is good at 205, but I dont see him being a serious title contender

I do in the future. He has ALOT of potential. If the UFC slowly builds him, I can see him being a serious contenders in the years to come.

He seems like a very athletic fighter. I just think that he do a lot better at 185. He has a lot of potential to be a contender at 185.
Just a lil comparison with Rich. He move down to 185 cause he felt that being at 205 was to much for him.

them smiles mean nothin.

Just ribbing you about the smileys. Before he goes to 185, I wanna see some of your original predictions come true. Some of them could some of the wouldn't.

I always thought he was a bit small for a LHW, but it REALLY showed when he fought Schafer...dude just completely over towered Bisping.

I don't care what division he's in, for the simple fact that the dude is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and has the best potential of all the TUF fighters to make it the furthest...Bisping is a damn animal.

You're just a cook...

Even more potential then Rashad? I think they are dead even in potential and they should both be GREAT. I think Bisping v. Rashad would be crazy.

Benn, I would kill to see Bisping v. Griffin!!!!
"Boo Hoo"....sorry I can't help myself

Rashad would be a close second. I think if the 2 would fight Bisping would pick him apart standing up, obviously Rashad would want to get him to the ground, but most of the Bisping fights I've seen he's been proven to get out of scary situations, and obviously does well on his back...it would be a good fight but I think Bisping would take him.

That's not downing Rashad though, guy has loads of potential as well..just Bisping, man I just can't say enough about that dude.

Of course Koscheck and Diego are in the mix as well, unfortunately for them they are in a killer division.

You're just a cook...
