Even on the ground I give Vitor the nod, his wrestling is probably on par with Bispings and he's a BJJ blackbelt.

I think Vetor has a edge on the ground and standing he should KO Bisping. I think he's got a chance but its not much of one IMO.

how is this such a big step down for Vitor?? Who has he beaten at MW that Bisping is a step down?? Hell, who has he beaten in recent memory that makes Bisping such a step down?? Terry Martin, Lindland?? Bisping would beat both of them. Only catchweight Franklin is impressive in his last few fights and could be ranked above Bisping.


being gifted a title shot doesnt mean Bisping is a step down.


Let me be the 1st to say it. Bisping is gonna TD Vitor, wear him out, make him gas and FINISH him. Then this forum will go bananas.

I think he makes a good gatekeeper so I hope they keep him around.
Absolutely no offense intended, but this statement is laughable. They are about as likely to cut bisping as they are Anderson Silva. The guys gets crowds involved and love him or hate him, people like to watch fights he's involved in... even if he does lose to Vitor his stance of only having losses to former champions stays intact. He's not going anywhere.

I also find it laughable how many poeple on here are counting the man out so fast against the serverly overrated Vitor. But I'm pretty used to that by now. I'll be dropping some money on The Count because I'm sure the odds will justify it.

He might take him down but he could get swept reversed or sub'd and I dont think he can keep Vitor on the ground to begin with.

Vitor has a underrated ground game and its better than Bispings IMO.

Thats the big issue and disagreement, I dont hate him but if I never saw him fight again it wouldn't bother me and I dont think he's going to win against the top guys in the UFC, if thats what they are going to feed him then he's going to lose.

He'll always have his English fans but in my experience americans have always hated him.

Out of the nine people I know that are MMA fans only one guy likes to watch him fight the rest of us would rather see just about anyone else on a card lol.

There's only one matchup in this division that's worse for Bisping than Vitor and that is Anderson. I think I will watch this fight with great pleasure.

All this talk about Bisping needing to get Belfort down is BS, Bisping is not out of his depth against Belfort on the feet.

Good fight - but I would've preferred to see Sonnen rip Bisping's head off.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig
