I kinda doubt it though. Bisping will know that getting taken down is death and will do everything he can to avoid it and will probably end up pecking and running to a decision. I think Bisping's worst match up would be guys who could take him down no matter what like Munoz or Sonnen.
Settle down. You're way out of line.

War Chael and Bisping!

Good to see Cody McKenzie on there too. I've liked him since I saw him on TUF and he choked a much more accomplished guy out in like 20 seconds.

hehehe, I remember watching that season when he was talking about his "secret move" and thinking he was a ****ing fruitloop. Then he was choking everybody unconscious in seconds. Crazy stuff.

I'm calling it like I see it. That is favorable match making, in Bisping's favor, that other fighters don't always get. When I say favorable, I don't think Bisping should be favored. I'm saying he is getting a match against the fighter he has the best chance against. I doubt this will be a title elimination. I believe this will be a one fighter gets a shot if he wins, the other fighter needs more wins besides this type of fight.

If this is for a title shot, then I agree, it is absolutely favourable matchmaking...........for Maia

Bisping's jab and footwork win this. I agree with every word Rek has said, not an easy fight, by stylistically advantageous for the Count

I cant see Maia taking him down and keeping him there

In the name of being a good sport yeah, but personally I aint counting (no pun) Maia out, got it bout 60/40 in Bispings favour

The element of surprise with Maia's improved striking is gone and Mike, if he does one thing well, it's he scrambles to his feet. But of course, Maia is a different class on the matt

Count me in guys!



For what it's worth, I much prefer Maia to Bisping as a fighter but I expect Bisping to pot-shot his way to a decision and be awarded a title shot just to do some business in the UK, even though the Count is a vastly inferior fighter to Vitor Belfort and would get ****ing brutalized by the Phenom in a title eliminator.

I think even Stann beats Bisping for sure.

Tough fight but Bisping takes the stand up as Stoo says Bispings jab and footwork are his bread and butter. He could beat Maia on this alone. Add into that he has good takedown defence and he is very hard to pin to the ground for a long time.

I'm a fan of Maia but this is Bispings fight to lose, Maia could catch him though.
