Do not sleep on Bisping you guys, I have no doubt Sonnen will take him down, but Bispings ground defence is awesome. I will call it now, Bisping Submits Sonnen for upset of the year.
That aint happening Bisping has never beaten anyone in the top 5 I can think of and all his opponents are hand picked for his style and to get teh UK fans....He doesnt have a chance...I doubt seriously if hes even faced anyone as strong as Chael...
Everyone thinks that changing fights from Maia to Sonnen on a 10 day notice will be such a disadvantage for bisping. I disagree, he's had Dean lister and jake sheilds rolling with him for the last 3 weeks, his JJ will be top notch. Sonnen has been submitted 8 times in his career lets not forget that. I have no doubt Sonnen wants to and will take Bisping to the mat, i say thats were bisping has the best shot at winning this one. I dont think Sonnen like Bisping has serious ko power, but bisping does have brutal ground and pound, his resume speaks for iteslf. Although sonnen stays heavy on top, he does not inflict half as much damage as bisping has in the past. Anyone who sleeps on bisping is a fool, this is not a popularity contest, bisping has been ko'd once, never submitted. Sonnen has been subbed 8 times and tko'd 3 times. Bisping has a legitimate shot aginst sonnen, his training camp for Maia is a good switch on 10 days notice, could be a lot worse. If anything Sonnen will have the more pressure changing his camp from a wrestler to a well rounded fighter like bisping.
