You guys are right, this is a good fight to make some money on.....
I'm saying Miller by Dec. And Bisping will cry that he didnt get the Dec. Him and LeBron James will have a lot in common: making excuses and crying about losing.

Agree with the odds. Bisping is a more well rounded fighter. I think a lot of people underrate his wrestling ability to be honest. He mixes up his attack very well with kboxing + wrestling etc... I think he edges Miller by decision in a fairly contested fight. I think this fight comes down to whether or not Mayhem can take this to the ground.

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

Good news for serious betters, Mayhem has got this via grapplef*ck to RNC.

I like Mayhem as a fighter and he is a very good fighter but Bisping is just below the top tier and should be able to take a contested decision.

Bisping is a high profile gatekeeper... He is a good fighter but not an elite fighter.

I think his antics put him in greater light then his skills have earned him.
