How do you see it going? i think we will see a mirror image of bispings plan against leben. He will throw a combo followed by alot of backward movement. This is not a knock against my boy mike as he fought an intelligent fight against leben respecting his knockout power and i feel he will use the same strategy against henderson. The one thing that henderson brings to the table that leben didnt though is the takedown attempts. It will be interesting to see if mike can avoid being taken down. I really think that henderson is the better matchup for bisping than franklin would of been as franklin is a far more superior striker than mike.

hendo wins rather easily. hendo is much more athletic and mobile than leben and he has more power in his hands and better wrestling. bisping won't be able to dance around hollywood, it's the right strategy but he will have to fight the perfect fight to beat him.

Hendo takes this hands down. All you guys need to refer to is Hamill Bisping.

Henderson should win this more convincingly than the Franklin fight.
Henderson is much stronger, much tougher, has an edge with Cardio, and has harder strikes.
Hendo by UD

Bisping has looked impressive at 185 and his gameplan and striking was really good in the Leben fight.

I would not be suprised to see him use this strategy, and pull off a decision win.

But I think Henderson is just too strong and has good ground control where he will keep Mike pinned down and drop some GnP on his way to a close decision win.

Bisping is capable of beating Henderson. I think he is due a KO victory (not just a referee stoppage) and this is the biggest fight of his career, maybe he can pull a Mir!

If Bisping struggles with wrestlers like the way he did with Hammil he is going to have big problems with Hendo. Hendo lasted and beat Franklin who is much better at 185 than Bisping imo. I think Dan out muscles and out works Bisping for another decision.

Hendo wins this fight, better wrestler than Hamill, with more powerful hand(s). Will be a TKO by GnP

Initially I was giving Bisping no chance, but as the fight is a reality now on the horizon I'm giving Bisping a better shot.

If Bisping can keep it on the feet, he can outpoint and tire Dan out. Michael winning is going to be largely dependent on his cardio. Ideally he can outwork Dan, and constantly work to get back up to his feet--pick Dan apart from the outside, and control the distance.

Dan's cardio wasn't the best, and he didn't cut any weight. Logically you could assume the cut to 185 for Dan could play some factor. That said; Dan just beat Franklin(who could still be the #2 MW if he so chose), who is a cardio machine and every bit as good a striker as Bisping--if not better...and he lost.

This is a big step up from Leben, and Bisping's performance against Leben (while clear cut) wasn't impressive. Leben gave no respect to Bisping's power, and with Dan's chin--he might not either. Unless Bisping starts loading up on his punches here and there, Hendo will walk right through those peppering shots and take him down, and that's not a place Bisping wants to be.
