I think he has the ability to hang with all of those but on par I don't think he could take on the likes of Jackson, Chuck, Sobral.. consistently. I would say he'd win about 25% of the time agianst those people.

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

Theres definatly an experience factor, to me he looks a teeny bit uncomfortable in the cage.

He could prolly even knock some of those dudes out.

I'd like to see him fight Jardine, that'd be fun to watch.

He hasn't really been tested yet but I think he still has most of the tools in place to be a contender.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

You see Bisping beating Babalu? I think hes too small to ever be a serious threat for a LHW title. But at MW it'd be a different story.

Yeah a Jardine fight would be perfect, though I give Jardine the edge. Keith doesn't get enough credit because of his unorthodox style and borderline prick attitude(though justified cause he gets no respect). I think his lost to Bonner by decision was a farce, Keith definately won that fight. And I don't think his win over Forest was a fluke.

Too small? Why do you think Bisping is too small? He doesn't seem like it to me, hes 6`2 and looks like he has a pretty naturally good build




What a stud

I'm one of those scratching his head as to why is he so highly regarded?
a lot of his wins are from guys who barely crack the .500 mark..even guys w/ 4-9, 1-3 records.
what's the fuzz all about and his fights in the UFC weren't that impressive either.

Mac Danzig is still on his back; his sweaty, pumped white torso is flushed with the auburn heat that auburn skin produces when it is aroused. His panting, fetching head has been pushed up against the cage by... Marc Bocek’s energetic pounding...
