Another blockbuster bout has been scheduled for UFC 156 according to UFC officials, this one between top middleweight contenders Michael Bisping and Vitor Belfort.

The event is set for Jan. 19 in an, as of yet, undetermined Brazilian city. Cities currently being considered to play host, however, so far include; São Paulo, Porto Alegre and Florianópolis, and Rio de Janeiro.

The card already features a much-anticipated featherweight clash between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.

Bisping (23-4) comes into the bout with an impressive 5-1 record in his last six fights. During the streak, he's has collected victories over Dan Miller, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Jorge Rivera, Jason Miller and Brian Stann.

Bisping gets caught in almost all his fights. Vitor can win this fight if he can capitalize. If not, I see Bisping doing his thing and riding it out to a decision.

Good match making for sure. Tough fight to pick. I'll be routing for Vitor.

Looks like Weidman will get the title shot if he beats Tim Boetsch.
And if Bisping wins he should get the title shot after Weidman. Not a Bisping fan but if he wins over Vitor he'll deserve the title shot at that point.

I am 100% taking Vitor on this one. Bisping has great stand up, but there is no doubt that Vitor does as well along with tremendous power. Now Bisping can chill about his title shot he allegedly earned, as per himself, and really prove he deserves it.

Another fight in which I like both guys, Vitor has the power and speed to end it quick, but if Bisping sticks and moves like he does I see him getting the DEC.

Great fight. I think Vitors hands are too fast for Bisping.

Thank god Bisping finally can shutup about a title. Vito will make Spit scared after he feels a single one of those punches crack his glass chin.

Unfortunately, I see Bisping sticking and moving, maybe landing a td or two, enroute to a UD. I'll be rooting like crazy for Vitor though.

Bad matchup for the count. I don't see him jabbing Vitor to a UD on this one.

If Vitor doesnt end the fight quick Bisping will take the decision his constant pressure will zap Vitor's gas tank. If Bisping is smart he will get the takedown and work from top position because standing toe to toe with Vitor is never a smart idea.

If Bisping wins then he'll finally deserve a title shot. If he doesn't win then he can shut up about it for a while. I personally hope Vitor knocks him out in under a minute

I envision Veeetor pulling the same nonsense that he did against Randy....you know, getting cold feet before the fight, pondering NOT making the walk to the octagon, making everyone wonder if he will actually make it out of the locker room without fainting.

Mikey 2nd rd TKO.

I like this fight. I have shown in past threads that I hate Bisping....However, I will be picking him to win. He's too determined, and his cardio is at a high level. Victor's chance is early. He needs to do what he did to Wandy to have a chance I think. If he can't finish it in the first few mintues. Bisping will wear him down with striking and moving. I hate to say it, but I gotta go Bisping by UD.

i dont see this happening. i think bisping will play the striking safe for the first round and maybe even get a TD or two. bispings wrestling is actually pretty good and i think he could catch vitor coming in and get him on the ground. i dont think he'll stay there but he could make vitor fear the TD and not come in so fast, opening up bispings technical striking.

I'm not a Bisping fan but I didn't realize he had such a glass chin.

I don't understand the point of this match. More BS idiocy from the UFC's supposed great matchmaker Joe Silva. Sigh.

Vitor Belfort ?@vitorbelfort
I don't have anything confirmed about fighting Bisping. It's all rumors. When I know about it will let you guys know.
