those of you who said that Matt looks unpolished and has no submission may be right-- but Bisping is overrated and Matt could take him down at will---- I do not see him getting caught in an armbar or submission by Bisping because Matt is so strong---
We are all just speculating--- know one knows for sure until they fight--
and they should have if Bisping wasn't a prick and released the armbar in practice--- how far do you need to go to "practice an armbar" ??

Matt should retire immediately. Quit while he is ahead. There are too many holes in his game not to get severly injured soon. He's strong, but this isn't a strong man contest.

Bisbing would not allow the fight to get to the ground, and Matt's Jaw isn't solid enough to break Bisbings hands.

You guys are just being morbid.

^^yeah the only thing Matt has is takedowns. he keeps his hands down, no submissions or guard passes, and all he wanted to against Jesse is shove his head down and uppercut him.....Matt should go WWE because he won't make it in the UFC

Mac Danzig and his bird feeder once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
Mac Danzig can kill two fighters with one bird feeder.
Superman owns a pair of Mac Danzig bird feeder pajamas.

During the whole season of TUF3 Matt Hammill was pissing me off, I mean all he kept saying was "none of these fighters are in my league" "he's not in my league," frankly it was making me angry. Really all he is is a great wrestler who wants to make a career out of mma. His strikes were terrible when he went up against Mike Nickels. He had many chances that he could of knocked nickels' head off but didn't capitalize. I agree his strikes were better at the TUF3 finale but he still has much work to do. He has intense takedowns, but what happens when they hit the ground, he overpowers and trys striking when he's in a guard? wow. not impressive. strength and wrestling is all he has. o ya and on the ground he either trys to "strike" or he just holds his opponent in place. And if their ever was a Bisbing vs. Hammill match, Michael Bisping would wrech Matt Hammill.

Are you joking??? Matt Hamill is a strong, rough - but primative wrestler. Michael Bisping's ground game is genuinely underrated. The man has been learning ju-jitsu since the age of 8, and fights extremely well off his back.

The commentator's on the UFC keep calling Bisping 'the brawling Brit' - that to me appears a bit ignorant. Bisping does have killer strikes and is proper vicious, but is also pretty tasty on the floor and is pretty much well rounded. How many different varieties of submission attempts did Bisping try against Josh Hayes? (too many to remember). Ortiz himself said that the only person who came close to submitting him in training was Bisping - and thats from an ex-world champion who has never been submitted.

Matt Hamill will only pick up the basics of submission fighting, he's left it far too late to master ju-jitsu. And Hamill will never get to the level of kick-boxing that Bisping is at.
