"I’m not gonna go more cautious because it’s Chris Leben. I’ll do what I normally do, look to stand on the feet and set the pace."
Yeah Count- this should go over about as well as a turd in a punch bowl.
Bisbing's got all the tools to handle Leben. He got the footwork to get inside, and a great clinch. He's a far more technical fighter on the whole. My initial thought was that he's out-smart Leben on his way to a Unanimous Decision.
But I'm not certain that someone who wants to stand and bang with Leben has the mental capasity to out-smart a potato, let alone a seasoned MMA vet. Bad, bad idea Bisbing.
Gameplan is everything in this sport. Anyone can win when you have the right plan, and execute (just ask Forrest Griffin). Thats why Xtreme Couture is so successful right now. They put together the right plan for each match-up, and execute every time. But, if you go into a fight with a stupid gameplan and execute; your going to lose and look stupid in the process (just ask Sean Sherk).
Bisbing's game plan is stupid....Leben's head is made of (and full of) rocks. But Counts wants to show the homeland what a big boy he is by standing and banging with the Crippler. I'm sure he'll execute his plan to perfection, and look very stupid in the process.
Good luck buddy.
