Don’t be fooled by Elvis Sinosic’s 8-9-2 record, he will be a very game test for the promising Brit’ Bisping. When Sinosic met Forrest Griffin in 2005 he gave the reality star all he could handle on the feet until a left hook found a home on his chin. Bisping has a decent ground game (even a rumored submission over Tito Ortiz while training) but he will want to keep this fight on the feet. Elvis will be much obliged. “The King” will bring a lot out of Michael Bisping that we haven’t seen yet. Look for an exciting fight with a lot of crowd participation. Bisping lives forty minutes from M.E.N Arena, if he lived any closer he would be fighting in his own backyard.

I' m really looking forward to this fight. Elvis will do a lot better than all the "TUF noobs" think. I know people who actually know MMA and have been fans for a while know who Elvis is and know that his experience will give Bisping (who is still learning the sport) a good test.

QFT

Most newer fans to the sport rely too heavily on things like the fightfinder, and deny an experienced fighter like Elvis a chance at winning soley on a losing record... In this fight Elvis has many tools he can use to his advantage against Bisping, like reach, toughness and a great submission game...

A lot of newer fans love to use the fight finder, look at it and go: "he sucks, he's good ..."

But with this fight, in the end, I think Bisping will get the TKO or the KO on Sinosic. (Most likely TKO.) But if Elvis gets the fight to the ground, he has a really good chance ...
