This is why Elvis Sinosic is one of my favorite fighters. It's not because he's the best, but it's because he always comes ready for a war. He doesn't have the best technique and he's not the most methodical fighter, but when you step in the cage with him you know that he's going to do everything that he can to tear your f*cking head off.

I think that Bisping is a much better fighter on a technical level than Sinosic is, but technical ability isn't always anything and if Bisping doesn't come ready for a huge fight then Sinosic is exactly the kind of fighter that can stop his cocky ass.

Bisping is undefeated, and Sinosic has a losing record. As far as a parper matchup, I give it to Bisping hands down, but it's not a paper matchup, these guys are going to go to war. If Bisping doesn't come prepared Sinosic will put on a show for sure.

Sinosic's performances are like his hair: flashy, but usually losers.

Why is it these days if a hyped fighter gets taken down once or twice by a guy who relies strictly on his ground game they are all of a sudden "not impressive"? Christ people are dumb.

You're just a cook...

Agreed. Bisping was a little rusty and it was his first UFC fight so was probably quite nervous. I know he was in the finale of TUF but that didn't have an audience of UFC66. When his fight started against Schafer I was nervous for him cause I want him to be the real deal and for me he performed well. I don't know what Pogo is going on about 'not impressive'. What is it that you expect from people?

There is no chance in hell that Bisping will go into this fight unprepared. Its the first UFC in the uk in years and he's the #1 fighter from over here at the moment so he will not want to dissapoint his 'home' fans.

It is not necessary to call someone 'douche' simply because he says something that you don't agree with.

Sherdog is like that. This forum is not.

Thats the problem with forums ppl bring their anger mgmt issues and lay it out on ppl for no fkn reason....we all have opinions and we wont always agree, thats life, lets just get along. Its easy to be a keyboard hero...

On topic, you would expect Bisping to win no doubt..but IMO id give a 40%-45% chance to Elvis. I know Elvis he is my home town boy and ive watched his UFC and non UFC fights. He has fought some tough opponents in UFC matches and his Machado BJJ is nothing short of excellent. His standup is pretty good and he is long and flexible.

Agreed his record is not great but as stated above he hasnt fought any cans. His last win was in the UK anyhow and his confidence is up.

Im biased but ill bet on Elvis to win 2nd rnd Sub....I may regret it but i gotta stick with my man.

Don't forget the added pressure he's under though. He has a lot of hype to live up to and infront of his home fans. (in the back of his mind) He is going to be thinking a lot about how not to lose more than focusing on pulling out all the stops. I expect a win from him but I'm going to also expect some first round jitters.


I feel a little sorry for the kid. He's a nice guy and modest when he was on TUF. He's being shoved into the spot light and is expected to perform while everyone in the UFC and media are nuthugging him. Money can buy you a lot of things but it can't buy you your mental game.

"You can light a fire for a man and he will be warm for a day."
OR
"You can light a man on fire and he'll be warm for a lifetime."

My Top 6
BW = Miguel Torres
LW = Tyson Griffin
WW = GSP
MW = Gegard Mousasi
LHW = Lyota Machida
HW = Fedor
