    Hypothetical matchup. Who wins the trilogy?

    I'd prefer a hypothetical matchup of a prime Wanderlei Silva vs Bisping. The thought soothes me.

    Rockhold will probably end up doing porn, he already has the name for it lol. He will just have to be careful that he doesn't get knocked out from some big ole bouncing titties.

    At this point? Bisping, all day. Even with one eye, the Brit takes it. Rockhold's chin is absolutely gone and with his lack of defense, he'd be there for the taking.

    I know Bisping got easily countered by Kelvin Gastelum, but he actually looked pretty good in his loss to GSP. I can't remember the last time Rockhold looked good.

    Prime against prime? Rockhold was a much superior fighter, and he would take it like the first fight. Rockhold's greatest strength was always his control on the ground, his ground and pound and to a lesser extent his jiu-jitsu. The problem is that, despite his wrestling background, he didn't have the kind of wrestling shot or the striking set ups he needed to get the fight to the mat consistently. He had some good offense on his feet with that money left kick to the body, but his defense was absolutely atrocious. No head movement, no upper body movement, no teep kick to keep distance... just nothing to keep guys away from him. If he could have fixed some of these issues, he would have been an all time great, in my opinion.
