Not a fcuking chance, been an English MMA fan and not supporting Bisping is a crime that I consider slight worse than treason, he get enough unjustified hate from the rest of the world.

In fact I dont even hold it against Bisping if he decides to think "fcuk you" to the rest of the world and stops trying to win you all over and just openly hates you all right back like he did to Rivera.

But one things for sure the English MMA fans will still be behind him.

Me I will just keep laughing as he works his way though the division and laughing at all the excuses you guys fall to when he wins.

Anyway end of rant, I think this is a really good stylistic match up for Bisping, I was quite worried that he may have to face Okami which stylistically I don;t think would of suited Bisping as good, although I think he could still beat Okami, but if Bisping is one win away from a title fight then this is a great opportunity.
I never had him losing to Akiyama or Rivera. Mainly because Bisping's stand up technique is way more technically sound than those 2.
It depends he could beat Vitor but if it turns into a kickboxing fight which Bisping is prone to do, then he will get KTFO, Vitor is just that damn good.

Vitor isn't Akyama. And he sure as hell isn't Jorge Rivera.

Realistically bisping was going to beat akiyama and Rivera from the time the fights were announced in my mind. There was always a chance but he just outmatches those guys. Now you get to the top guys, marquardt, sonnen, Okami, sonnen, stann, vitor, anderson. These guys all will pose problems to bisping and he will need to be at his best to have a shot with any of these guys.

Vitor is too well rounded to simply be taken down at will my bisping. If all goes as planned we'll see something similar to the lindland vs vitor fight.

Bisping is in a tough spot should this fight happen. Vitor's striking is not going to fall to Bisping's. Bisping needs to be able to take this fight to the ground consistently.

Notice Vitor didn't put a year in after "May."

Expect the fight to be delayed due to injuries. I'm guessing May 2013.

Great fight, Bisping needs to fight smart but he can definitely win this.

The iffy thing for me is; why is Belfort getting another big name? He got catapulted to a title shot and utterly failed, should go back to square one IMO, not that he was ever there in the first place.

If Bisping gets a title shot off this should he win, I think that is quite fair, the rest of the Top 5 have already fought Silva before, and apart from maybe Okami, won't be fighting him again any time soon. He's a great, well rounded fighter with a great record, give him a crack at it.

Well then Id say he could be in trouble. He looked bad in his last fight and Vitor should KO him, that leaves him one maybe two losses away from being cut..

I think he makes a good gatekeeper so I hope they keep him around.

yes and no. bisping is going to lose to the top guys, but there is no way stann has earned being considered a top guy with the names like silva, nate, sonnen, vitor and okami. and theres no WAY that sonnen is 2 tops guys at once
