i figured Bisping would be a -300 favourite. Miller wouldnt have fought in over a year at the time of the fight, Bisping has a clear advantage striking, and i doubt Mayhem will be able to take him down. even if he does, Bisping has a pretty good butterfly guard to get back to his feet.
i see this as a lopsided Bisping decision win
I've always felt that Mayhem is a very underrated fighter, even amongst hardcore fans. idk if it's because of his persona or what. Mayhem is a very fundamentally sound striker. i don't know if he's better than Bisping on the feet, that has yet to be seen. To question his grappling is asinine. He's a BJJ black belt and a although he doesn't have any NCAA credentials, he is a very solid wrestler. If you want to question his grappling abilities watch his fights against Jacare Souza and Jake Shields. Even though both fights were decision losses he definitely proves his worth as a grappler. He defends submission attempt after submission attempt against Jacare, who is not only one of the best BJJ practitioners in MMA, but is one of the best competitive BJJ practitioners in the world. Against Shields he again defends many submission attempts except this time gains many dominant positions on Shields and at the end of round 3 has a rear naked choke fully locked in. the only thing that saved Shields was the bell.
Bisping is in for a long night
