That's what Charles McCarthy thinks of MIchael Bisping, who McCarthy faces in a Middleweight fight at UFC 83. McCarthy says he "doesn't see anything in him".

Average ... no, crap at wrestling ... Yes, bispings biggest weakness is his wrestling ability. I think he'll be a better all round fighter at 185, If he improves his strikes and take down defence, he could shoot up to the top end of that division, but i doubt he could beat anderson silva. I wanna see bisping beat a guy like mcdonald, lutter or lebon within the next 12 months in order to say he could have some success in the middleweight division.

Thats exactly why Bisping is going to stomp McCarthy into the ground. He doesn't come prepared to his fights... "Captain Miserable".

At the end of the day, who is charles mcCarthy ? Bisping may have only fought the middle division of LHW's, but he did win the tuf show, he did plummel sinosec and schafer, he was poor on his last two performances, but you learn from your mistakes and get better from losses. What has charles accomplished and who is he to lable bisping, Mike will pound this guy with ease !!!!

as much as it pains me i think i may have to agree, as mediocre as my opinion of Bisping may be, who has chainsaw beat recently to be in a position to say things like this.

haha. People might agree with charles on here out of pure dislike for bisping, but if hes average, what is charles?? Hes below average best. For him to make this statement makes me believe he thinks hes above average which is just stupid, i hope bisping beats the shit out of him.

The thing is guys, you got to think bisping will get better and better. The reason i think this is because he is still the english ufc poster boy, he has the backing of dana white which says to me that dana will help fund his training, just like he did with liddell. Bisping has a huge following in the uk as he is the first british fighter to crack the states and become recognised. Ian freeman and mark weir came in and went out quick, bisping holds a tuf championship, no other english fighter has accomplished this. If bisping continues to work with quentin jacksons coach, he will improve his wrestling and takedowns, and hopefully give us some great fights in the future !!!!

Bisping probably was average at 205. He will make an impact at 185 for little while. In the end I dont see him being a contender at either weight class. He is a young guy, and I hope he does improve his game and proves me wrong. The 185 pound division could use some more competition.

I am actually starting to think that MW is coming back up...they have had a coule of guys move down that were decent and had the return of Almeida, not to mention some of the older MWs have started to perform again. It's getting a lot better there recently, now the HW div....they could use a LOT of help!!!

i want him to rip off bispings arm very badly, then the UFC shows Hamill's face afterwords saying "i love it, im lovin it" like Hughes did when GSP got beat

I totally agree. I dont really like bisping anymore. matt hamill exposed how average he is. Chainsaw for the upset. Doubt bisping will have that big on an effect because the MW is turining around.

Matt Hamill kept Bisping at bay with jabs and overhand rights. And he has minimal training in stand up. I think the count wil go down early and get subd
