Paul's take downs are sick, I think he'd submit AS.

I'm a huge Toquinho fan, but he needs a top 10 win before we talk shitle tots...

Bisping please. That's a win-win for fans.

Bisping loses a limb to Toquinho... or Bisping beats Toquinho and then gets the privilege of fighting Spider

Thats what I was thinking.


I'd love to watch them roll in an actual BJJ competition. And maybe in an MMA fight.

But the result in MMA would probably a decision for one of them. And perhaps minimal ground work. Palhares has the strength and takedown advantage though.

Yes, thank you, why aren't more people saying this? Palhares is looking good, very good, but he still hasn't beaten a noteworthy opponent. In fact the 142 fight is practically a step down. Massenzio's biggest win was Drew McFedries, this was pure record padding for Palhares.

Lets see him beat a top 10 guy before anyone even mentions title shot in the same breath as Palhares.

I agree with this man.

palharres has done less than Bisping to deserve a title shot And hasn't really beaten anyone of note. if Bisping had beaten the guys Palharres has beaten you lot would be shitting your knickers if he was given a shot.

whilst I don't think Bisping has deserved a shot either, I'd be happy if these two fought for the no.1 contender status . Obviously by that time the whole chael/silva/Munoz thing will have played out.
