I'll fight whoever the UFC puts in front of me." That quote should sound vaguely familiar to fight fans.

I'd love to see that fight. Alexander will destroy him very quickly. Too much power.

Alexander is a beast I want to see someone test him though either take him to the gound or go past the first round with him I am not sure that will actually happen though

I'd love to see that fight... Bisping had a really tough fight against Hammill, and before that fight Hammill was definitely not known for his striking. I think Alexander could take this one.

Two overrated fighters going against one another, I could see Bisping taking this one.

I think Bisping is the weakest link in the division and would like to see this fight. But a fight against someone like Bonnar who imo has never really had a good test would be good too.

I would love to see Alexander smash Bispings big mouth. The only way i could see Bisping win that fight is by submission, but Alexander is way too powerful for him. Alexander KO rd 1.

hahaha.. i swear.. half ur posts are just to piss people off

I think bisping was proven to be overrated when he lost the standup battle to someone who was considered to be a pure wrestler so i agree there, but I dont think houston alexander is overrated by any means. Two impressive first round KOs. Nobody has tested his ground game, but his standup is deadly whether its in the clinch, against the fence or with space.

Do you really think that the standup game of someone who lost to hamill can match up to someone who KOed jardine and sakara?

What are your thoughts on the TUF fighters who beat Liddell and Shogun?????? Still think they are overratted?

Anyways I would love to see Alexander KO Bisping.

I totally agree, Bisping lost the fight to Hamill and Hamill landed some good shots. Alexander would pick Bisping apart like no tomorrow....

Dana White is too high on this guy(Bisping) someone needs to knock his ass out because I don't think he competes with at least 17 fighters I know of right now....In totally random order....

Rampage
Hendo
Sokoudjou
Jardine
Liddell
Machida
Silva
Shogun
Griffin
Evans
Ortiz
Alexander
Nogueira
Bonnar (ya I said it, Bonnar would beat his ass)
Lambert
Sobral
and ofcourse Matt Hamill, why? Because he truely won that fight...

There are few more but I can think of them all....O ya Arona too! So that would make 18.

I would actually like to see Thiago Silva fight Bisping, it would be a good stepping stone for Silva to move up in the light-heavy divison....

alexander would definitly win this fight... when hamill was going after bisping bisping got gun shy and looked like a deer caught in headlights.. he's the one who likes to be coming foward and likes to push the pace but he didnt against hamill and arguably lost that fight..... and alexander always pushes the action.

mr. houston hands down i say bisping wouldnt have enough power to stand with em an dont think he would be able to take him down as easy an seems houston has a strong chin

Im loving the Houston nuthuggery thats going on, it was apparent before his fight with Sakara but now it is rife!!!! I give the guy props for hitting very hard, but surely anybody can see the guy has a gastank comparable to akebono with a punctured lung, he was breathing heavy talking to rogan both times

BUT while i absolutely hate Bisping and think he is a poor fighter and a terrible poster boy for british mma (semtex would be SO much better) i would actually pick him to beat Houston, he would be smart enough to move around enough until he gets gassed then land enough to win a UD (that is if Houston doesnt collapse and let him GnP him in the mean time)

zephead are you still mad at me because of that time I said that one of the articles you posted was crappy? It sure seems like you're gunning for me.

It's a public forum, and I speak my mind, sorry if our opinions sometimes differ.

I'm not going to disagree with you, simply because I agree about the nuthugging. The guy is obviously a VERY hungry fighter, but I wanna wait and see him knock out some top competition since everyone now knows he's no joke, and you can't count him out.

About the heavy breathing... I dunno, hard to say his tank was empty just because he was breathing heavy. Like I mentioned before, he is a VERY hungry fighter, and he probably put everything he had into finishing both fights... just IMO I'll wait and see how he does when the fight goes longer than 1 round before I think his cardio is bad.

I'd think that Alexander would destroy him after seeing Bisping struggle with Hamill's stand up.

I don't care who they give to Houston...I'm watching!! That being said if they want to truley test him then they need to bring in someone with a strong chin, and some kind of clinch/ground game. Then we can see if he is a one trick pony or not!!

Bisping got exposed a little by hamill. If the ufc put the 2 fighters together bisping could get his ass handed to him in a hurry. only shot he has is getting that beast alexander to the ground.

I use to think bisping was a good fighter and i also had respect for him but after that hamill fight he clearly showed he is a complete asshole most of the time.I want to see this fight and im pretty positvie houston would smash on him because bisping cant handle being attacked and houston has shown he is devastating at that aspect of the game.

Houston would strait tko bisping no problem

since TUF, Bisping's really not looked any what impressive... wonder if he'll even stay at 205 if he does lose to Rashad... give Houston someone higher up on the food chain... wonder how another Jardine fight would play out...but no doubt his two minutes in the octagon have been fun

I'de defiantly support Houston in this one.
