IMO Bispings best chance is to go unconventional and go for the take down first.
I thought about this until I realised Cheal has proberbly spent a lot of time in camp drilling TDD and Mike will have spent zero time practicing takedowns due to their opponents. I'd just tell him to steer well away.

Bisping's going to get taken down and beaten up, you can bet on that. Chael looked awesome against Stann, and he's going to look even better here. Chael P Sonnen is coming for that belt!

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.
His scrambles and defensive guard, being able to reverse, sweep and butterfly guys with excellent top control like Kang. On the feet he has a speed and technical advantage.

It's a tough fight for Bisping, but I also think 4:1 is a bit ridiculous.

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**
I think most fans in the UK would happily agree Hamill won that fight, there really isn't any need for the UK bashing that you put in EVERY SINGLE one of your posts.

My point is that people think this fight will look exactly like Koscheck/Daley, and I don't think it will. Bispings BJJ and TDD are underrated as is Chaels boxing.

I think if Bisping keeps it standing Chael will surprise him with how good his stand up is. And if Chael tries to wrestle**** Bisping he'll be surprised by how hard he finds it, especially if Bisping has been working with the likes of Jake shields like he says. That's just how I see it but by all means call me a delusional limey...

Firstly, I thought Bisping won that fight.

Secondly, Psycho is one of the few colonists on here who understand banter. Long may it continue!

I actually thought Bisping won as well, after re watching it that is, but it was so long ago, I don't care to argue about that. It's just funny how an opinion can change after a second view.
