Do you love standup-only fights?

If so, the main event on FX this Saturday night is must-see TV. Vitor Belfort versus Michael Bisping pits two of the UFC’s best 185-pound strikers (not named Anderson Silva) against each other in a championship eliminator, of sorts.

Interesting article but it seems to have missed some key factors

Bisping averages 2 takedowns per fight, the article says


There will be no takedowns


Bisping statistically attempts 2 takedowns per fight, has a 46% takedown accuracy.

Against Stann he went for 13 takedowns and got 4.
Against Wandy he attempted 9 and got 5

So what makes the author think no takedowns will be made because:

Bisping doesn’t have the skills to get Belfort to the ground

Bisping earned 1 takedown against Chael and got 2 takedowns on Rashad... Not only that but in Vitor's 31 fights he's got a takedown defence of 49%, even Terry Martin and James Zikic were able to score takedowns on him
Instead the author believes:

There will be no takedowns. Not unless Belfort wants one, which he won’t


With Bispings 62% Takedown defence I doubt Belfort will be able to get one in the first place.....

I think the guy is trying to make people bet on Vitor so Bisping's betting line is better than even money like it is at the moment

i am always skeptical when a new website all of a sudden shows up and is getting crammed down our throats by someone on the playground. I complained about this site in another thread and my comment disappeared.

It reminds me of years ago when that guy was peddling his own site, I cant remember his name. Micheal something.

Rabi,

I replied to your email apologizing for my post and explaining my frustration with the site.

As I said in my message I should have been constructive with my comments.
