Unfortunately, Bisping's strengths are the same as Silva's...only Silva is better at them. I think Bisping will be better off at middleweight, but don't see him even getting close to defeating Silva or Hendo though.

Not a chance Anderson is miles ahead of Bisping.

please Bisping.



He still needs to fight Franklin.

Put him up against Almedia and watch him tap quickly.

Bisping has fought a bunch of cans thus far, The Spider would rape Bisping so would Hendo.

I'd take GSP over Bisping in a heartbeat, I think The Count needs to come back to reality and get over himself, if he is so freaking good then why in the hell is he fighting "ANOTHER" can called the Chainsaw??

I understand that fighters have to be somewhat cocky and very self-confident... But Bisbing is going to bite off more than he can chew in this situation... If he almost got caught by an Elvis Sinosic-knee... What on earth is Anderson gonna do to him?

Its all about matchups. He strikes when he thinks he can outstrike an opponent and when he can't, he ground and pounds. I do not think he could beat Anderson of yet, but does he have some of the tools (wrestling and gnp skills) to beat a guy like Silva, sure. Aside from that, Silva has to get past Hendo first.

I think "the Count" would have to muster a field of Knights to beat Silva.
Silva dishes out insane damage and punishment...with incredible accuracy and speed. Bisping has never fought anyone near Silva's level.
You never know though!

Oh it saddens me, seriously i knew all this was coming from Bisping sooner or later, he said he would be champ at LHW when he was barely able to beat the lower level guys and then lose to Hamill! WTF makes him think he could beat Okami or Franklin or Tanner? let alone Silva!!!!! He hasnt fought at 185 yet

A guy who can beat Silva should be able to beat Charles McCarthy really quick i guess?

Bisping is a decent striker, I'll give him that. But Anderson is at another level, Bisping needs to give himself much more time in the game and face (and defeat, not get horrible decisions called his way) tougher opponents. Win some fights against some guys like Okami, Tanner...then step up to Marquardt, possibly Franklin (who would both kick the dog shit out of him, but that's besides the point) then you may make some claims like that..But as of now, you just make yourself sound stupid, Count! It's good to have confidence, but stupid to be so cocky when you don't have legit wins to back it up.
