Vitor is a clear top five MW... there's simply no debating that point... it's simply that Anderson Silva is on another level altogether, and that includes the MW division in its entirety. The words 'exposed' and 'overrated' are tremendously disrespectful to legitimately talented fighters, and if Anderson fans actually stopped to think about it, disrespectful to Anderson as well. They claim the man is P4P the best fighter on the planet, yet it always seems to be that his opponents were over-rated or easily exposed. Which makes it sound as though he isn't fighting the best. Which in turn wouldn't make him that worthy of the praise he gets. Food for thought.

Vitor deserves respect. Let's not sully him with such general and ill-though-out statements. I also think it fairly obvious he's going to smash Bisping, who I am consistently impressed with, but do not see as a top five MW in any way, shape, or form.
Obviously losing to the best mma fighter in the world won´t get you exposed, but Vitor has fought other guys and has been exposed several times. I´ve had him up there in the sky, but he felt down (in my eyes) long before the Andy fight.

About the respect, i don´t see it in that pejorative way of yours. Fighters as all humans are not perfect and have their defects. Talking about them being exposed is not disrespectful as it is just normal and an expectable thing to do when you try to analise them.


EDIT: I´ll be very impressed if Vitor smashes Bisping. I expect Bisping to take that one if it gets past round one.

Forever hanging in Anderson Silva nuts

So everyone says Bisping only beats the cans but when he goes on a win streak and gets the opportunity to fight a better guy the same people complain about it being a step down for the opposition... cool beans.

Dear Santa what I really want for X-mas is to see Vitor "Lindland" Bisping, Seeing Bisping get Hendo'd again would also be satifactory.

Can we have Anderson Silva show up and Forrest him after?

Easy fight for Bisping if he convinces Seagal to teach him his "deadly stuff".


Hard work is the only real PED.
