I think bisping is out of the ufc if he loses to McCarthy, I actually think McCarthy can beat bisping cause i think bisping is really overrated imo and hes very beatable, and that would be a disaster for the ufc cause bisping is the poster boy for the ufc in the U.K



well give me ur thoughts on this topic

If Bisping loses it will be a shock, but Bisping is a very good fighter. He is improving his takedown defense and ground game, doesnt have too much dynamite in his hands (Against LHW fighters) but is overall shaping up to be a well rounded fighter.

Everyone wanted to see him move down to MW to spice up the weight class and I think he very well could. Lets some he can cut weight affectively and still have most of his strength when he fights McCarthy.
Bisping takes this.

mccarthy gets another fight in the ufc and bisping gets another average fighter, it wouldnt be earth shattering, but would make the MW division look that much more cloudy after the top 3.

I would love to see McCarthy win! But I doubt he will. The UFC just keeps bringing him as stepping stone and I hate when they do that to a person.

I give Mccarthy a 10% chance only. Bisping is a blackbelt in Jits. It's not something I think people givbe him a lot of cresit for. I'm pulling for Bisping, and hope he pills off a spinning back kick, ala Loiseau.

I don't think Bisping will leave the UFC he's one of their bigger stars outside the U.S. I'm not a fan of Bispings attitude he's very cocky and doesn't back it up enough.

I think Bisping is a good fighter, and an improving fighter....I dont see him losing this fight (and if he does...I dont see him leaving).. aside from the top 3-4 UFC MWs I think Bisping should be a threat agaisnt anyone in the division....depending on how he adjusts to the weight cut that is.

No way in hell that Bisping is out of the UFC if he loses to McCarthy (which he won't). He is 14-1 overall (his only loss is to Evans), and he won this tournament called, um, The Ultimate Fighter. Heard of it? That makes him one of the biggest draws in the UFC. Whether YOU like it or not, the fact that he is a big draw will keep him in the UFC for at least three more years. And that's if he loses every single fight that they put him in in that time.

I think McCarthy is going to win.I hate, and I mean HATE when the UFC just feeds their "Superstar" fighters guy with little chance of winning, and the fact McCarthy had a 1 year layoff is bull in it self, until this fight he will have been the only guy to win on a TUF finale and NOT brought back,I mean he finished his fight in round 1, Pete Spratt won by injury and they brought him back like 3 or 4 times(I know he lost 2 of those maybe more).I think Chainsaw McCarthy should have been brought back a while ago.

Bisping isn't going anywhere, regardless of how this fight turns out. His draw in Europe is too large.

McCarthy has zero chance of winning in this fight. And there are two reasons:

1-He's a one dimensional fighter. All 10 of his victories are via submission, and I don't think that he'll be able to take Bisping down. Bisping will most likely knock him out before he even gets a chance to shoot.

2-You can get in his head. Did you see him on TUF 4? Shonie Carter and those guys messed with him the whole season ("Charles McCarthy....it is not you.."), and he let it get to him. All that Bisping needs to do is rattle him some, and he'll be done.

Well, here's my thoughts on it.

1/ Bisping won't lose, he's too good for McCarthy.

2/ If he does, he won't drop out of the UFC.

3/ If he were to drop out of the UFC, perhaps one good thing would come out of it, we'd get less threads from wankers on here bad-mouthing the guy at every chance they get.

4/ Try and think of a more logical argument for how you think McCarthy could beat Bisping, other than your infantile bandwagon style hatred for the guy.
