Another blockbuster bout has been scheduled for UFC 156 according to UFC officials, this one between top middleweight contenders Michael Bisping and Vitor Belfort.

The event is set for Jan. 19 in an, as of yet, undetermined Brazilian city. Cities currently being considered to play host, however, so far include; São Paulo, Porto Alegre and Florianópolis, and Rio de Janeiro.

The card already features a much-anticipated featherweight clash between UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.

Bisping (23-4) comes into the bout with an impressive 5-1 record in his last six fights. During the streak, he's has collected victories over Dan Miller, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Jorge Rivera, Jason Miller and Brian Stann.

Bisping gets caught in almost all his fights. Vitor can win this fight if he can capitalize. If not, I see Bisping doing his thing and riding it out to a decision.

Good match making for sure. Tough fight to pick. I'll be routing for Vitor.

Looks like Weidman will get the title shot if he beats Tim Boetsch.
And if Bisping wins he should get the title shot after Weidman. Not a Bisping fan but if he wins over Vitor he'll deserve the title shot at that point.

I am 100% taking Vitor on this one. Bisping has great stand up, but there is no doubt that Vitor does as well along with tremendous power. Now Bisping can chill about his title shot he allegedly earned, as per himself, and really prove he deserves it.

Word.

If Bisping makes it out of the first round then he should win this one.

Another fight in which I like both guys, Vitor has the power and speed to end it quick, but if Bisping sticks and moves like he does I see him getting the DEC.

Great fight. I think Vitors hands are too fast for Bisping.

Thank god Bisping finally can shutup about a title. Vito will make Spit scared after he feels a single one of those punches crack his glass chin.

Unfortunately, I see Bisping sticking and moving, maybe landing a td or two, enroute to a UD. I'll be rooting like crazy for Vitor though.

Bad matchup for the count. I don't see him jabbing Vitor to a UD on this one.

If Vitor doesnt end the fight quick Bisping will take the decision his constant pressure will zap Vitor's gas tank. If Bisping is smart he will get the takedown and work from top position because standing toe to toe with Vitor is never a smart idea.
