No it was very underwhelming. He looks confused everytime he gets ready to go, like he doesnt know how to get started. The alignment and the follow through on the back kicks is quite off. Bisping really is uncomfortable in any striking game that doesnt involve circle jabbing

If Bisping actually had true belief in his ability when fighting an opponent he could have a chance, Sonnen has proven to be a great fighter and Bisping always seems to just do enough to win he never seems to really want to destroy his opponent or sit on his punches etc.
I couldnt give two shits about wether i like either fighter i just want to see a good fight and read constructive adult comments and opinions.

If this fight is a snooze fest that chael wins I would not be shocked if Dana gives Hendo his shot or at least I hope they consider that option.

If bisping wins by sub how impressive is that? I think that would confirm suspicions he has no sub defense, I personally don't think that makes bisping the top contender and if chael hugs his way to a boring finish I don't think that elevates him either.

I hope its competitive, don't know that it will be.

I don't see how it could be boring unless bisping manages to keep his distance and dance away.

I think (hope) that Chael will come out with no respect for Bispings power at all and out kickbox him long enough to set up a huge slam that Bisping never gets up from. he may have to repeat in the 2nd round but, he won't need a 3rd.

Well said.

That being said I'm hoping that the more well rounded fighter is able to win the fight.

Marquardt was also more well rounded imo, but he wasn't able to get it done unfortunately, even though he was close on 2 separate occasions.

I'm hoping can he can use his TDD and try to hurt Sonnen or go for a sub from the back.

Here's to hoping lol

Bisping has to actually sit on his punches to have a shot at winning this fight, Sonnen has a good chin and will just walk through his punches if he decides to try to outpoint Sonnen in a standup match.

I like the fact that Bisping seems to be in the mindset to not be afraid of getting taken down, and actually expects it to happen at some point in the fight. Sonnen is good at keeping top control, but he doesn't really do vicious damage while he is on top, and seems to be content with just controlling his opponent and winning the round. Also, I don't think Bisping is scared of Sonnen's power, this makes me believe that Bisping will go for broke in the standup game and aim for a knockout.

I see Sonnen getting the decision, but I also expect Bisping to hurt him standing up a couple of times.

I wanna see Chael win just so we can see him get wrecked by Anderson. Same goes for Rashad. After all the trash talking, I just wanna see him get beat by Jones.

I really want Bisping to win this but mulling over it I just can't see how he can do it. I think Chael will obliterate Michael on the ground. I hope I am wrong on this on but I sincerely doubt it.

If this were a 5 rounder, I think Bisping would stand a much better chance. I think a lot of people are underestimating Bisping working from the outside while overestimating Sonnen's mma wrestling skills.

That being said, I think this will be a UD, probably a 29-28 for Sonnen. Round 1, Bisping will be able to work from a distance and will be prepared for Sonnen's aggressiveness. Rounds 2 + 3 to Sonnen.
