If I was Bisping's coach I would be telling him to try and get the take down first. Bisping actually has some decent GnP from the top, and wrestlers hate being put on their back. If Bisping tries his usual stick and run, Chael will just drive him to the fence and pull his legs out from under him and win the round. IMO Bispings best chance is to go unconventional and go for the take down first.

How is this fight close?

What does Bisping really have to offer Chael besides footwork? Power? No, even if he did, Nate Marquardt, Anderson Silva, and Brian Stann all tagged Sonnen and he literally walked right through them en route to taking them down and punching them in the face.

His ground game? The fight would have to get to the ground first and Sonnen has enough power and very underrated boxing, I think he can win the stand up because Bisping will have to resort to throwing strictly punches because if he throws a kick he runs the risk of Sonnen grabbing a hold of him and putting him on the ground.

People have very short memory when it comes to Bisping, neither Rashad, Hamill or Henderson were able to dominate Bisping with wresting. So I'm not sure how its so obvious that Chael will. Bisping is NOT Hardy or Daley.

Hendo didn't try to wrestle him and Chael is a much better wrestler than Rashad and Hamill who a lot of people think Bisping lost to.

This.

Henderson didn't attempt one takedown, so there goes that argument. The world, minus England, knows who truly won between Bisping and Hamill. And Evans, still relatively green at the time, took home a victory as he was able to outwork Bisping on the ground... so I don't get where the 'Rashad couldn't control Bisping' remarks are coming from, as that's precisely what he did.

Listen... all hooligans, limeys, and dandies. I know you have to represent your boy. But the truth is, this fight will not be close. Not only will Sonnen outwork Lord Bisping on the ground, but I'd be willing to bet he'll outwork him on the feet, as well. This guy stood toe-to-toe with Anderson freaking Silva and got the better of him. Talk about 'how soon we forget'.

We need be realistic and forget foolish things like pride and patriotism. I'm Canadian, but you don't see me touting John Makdessi as the next LW Champion. All I have are GSP and Rory MacDonald to make my country look amazing. So please, England, stop placing all of your chips on Sir Michael when you have plenty of actual talent such as... errrr... well....

**exits slowly**

As already said, this statement holds no weight.

Hendo didn't...and didn't have to try to wrestle.

Most everyone agrees Hamill beat him. And Hamill isn't THAT GREAT of a wrestler. He was always good, and had great strength, but he isn't a standout wrestler by any means.

And didn't Rashad win that fight, mostly because of his wrestling?

Sonnen has better wrestling than all these guys. Bisping was taken down by Miller just last fight, until Mayham gassed out. I see no reason why Sonnen can't get the take down pretty much whenever he wants.

He won't let me down on the smack talk, I am positive. "Fail" Sonnen has failed at politics, failed at real estate, failed at being a crook in real estate because he got caught, failed as a middleweight title challenger, so I am sure Fail Sonnen won't want to fail at his true calling in life: smack-talking.
HAHAHA! I can't stand either Bisping or Sonnen but just because of that I might have to root for Bisping, it actually made me lol. I had no idea he was know as "Fail" among other fighters, I thought that was just a forum thing. War Bisping (ugh) kick Fhaels ass. I will be placing a money bet on Sonnen tho.
