Bisping has never even been the best MW but if he beat Jones I'd call him the goat

Alternatively, there's never been a time when Bisping hasn't been the best MW.

Bisping is a lame stinkyhole

Just watch him on TUF, he's a turd. He eventually learned to behave a certain way infront of cameras though, ill give him that

Watching an overweight French Canadian fruit shadow box clumsily knowing that very soon a smug British man will kill him and call him names seems regressive somehow but I think it's important so we don't go forgetting what sport we follow.

i like that part of mma. im not so interested in the trash talking and media stuff but i like that the athletes can mostly just say whatever they want

Bisping is going to make GSP look silly. It's gonna look like a kid trying to wrestle his dad.

Yeah if GSP doesn't put easily him on his rear end in the first minute it's gonna get ugly

God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. Who will wipe this blood off us? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we need to invent?

Bisping deservedly is mocked for his very British double, but his defensive wrestling is really, really good.

Chael Sonnen struggled to wrestle Bisping while making most other 185/205 guys prior to that look silly. I don't think GSP has better wrestling than Chael plus he'll be giving up a lot in size difference. Chael and Bisping are both 6'1". GSP is only 5'10".

GSP has a major uphill battle to win this fight and I'm not sure he does it.

IIRC, Chael has said GSP is better, but that is most likely in a pound-for-pound context. GSP is a better athlete as well, but the muscle mass difference might be enough to swamp all that.

Bisping is bigger than GSP, is the champion in a weight class GSP has never fought in, has good takedown defense, punches people pretty good, and is not afraid of aliens. I think he's got this.

Counterpoint: Bisping had to cheat to beat Rivera in a fistfight, and I'm fairly sure I saw GSP throw a jab once, so it's dans le sac mes amis.

Yeah, I'm just not sure he's going to get KO'd from it. He recovers well.

He'll give Conor fits if he makes into round 3 onwards, I reckon.

Tony will win via brutal G&P in round 2 and then three weeks later Conor will be explaining how he was the real winner of the fight.

Yeah, if Tony makes it to round 3 Conor's gonna get tuckered out.

I don't think he makes it to 3 though.

by using the cowardly gaijin martial art of gay sex fighting, Tony will dishonor the UFC and Conor will be the defacto champion still by fighting with his bushido spirit and tae kwon do for the pleasure of the masses

Conor has yet to defend a belt in the UFC right? Unification but no defenses. At one point I said he would not defend a belt before the end of this year, and I still stand by that.

He didn't defend a belt in the B League where he had two belts or in the UFC, but he did win while interim champ so he has that under his belt, yeah.
