UFC 70 preview: Bisping vs. Sinosic
link 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.
