Bisping vs Belfort Official For Jan. 19th UFC In Brazil Main Event - Winner?
I see Michael Bisping vs Vitor Belfort confirmed for January 19th in Brazil.
As someone who actually believes he could give Anderson Silva a good shot even if it is through a points decision i think Bisping takes this against Vitor.
Whats your thoughts?
Think Bisping can beat him these days he looks a great fighter now, just needs to get through the first round then Vitors cardio/power will have gone!
War the Count
This is as bad a match up for mike as silva is, be very surprised if he gets through this. No one can accuse bisping of ducking any fighter, hendo, sonnen and now vitor in title eliminators, what shit luck!
I do believe weidman turned down a fight with Belfort. He is a good fighter but in all honesty fights against Maia, munoz and boetsch is a nice route to the top of the rankings. All fights I'd expect bisping to win.

It's not shit luck that he's got Vitor, Hendo and Sonnen in title eliminates because he has the beat these guys!! Same with if he fought Weidman, chris would smash him the same way he did Munoz.
Belfort ko early. Has too much one punch power for bisping
I think you're talking bollocks. You don't necessarily have to beat the top guys to get a title shot, but you do have to play the cards you're dealt. If mike beats Belfort (unlikely IMO)' and wiedman beats boetsch then they are both on the cusp of a shot. I would take Stann, sonnen and Belfort to easily beat the 3 guys that wiedman has had to face, so yeah, shit luck!

So hypothetically if Bisping was given a shot without facing these guys would it be bad luck he happened to fight silva for the title or if he beat Silva would it be bad luck to then have to defend it against Sonnen, Belfort etc .. He isn't a championship fighter. Weidman deserves a shot well before Bisping because he's beaten the top fighter in the world at middleweight after Silva.
He's beaten the top mw after silva? You must be pissed, stoned or just fckin mad if you mean either munoz or Maia. Didn't wiedman turn down a fight with vitor as well. Seems like he is picking and choosing who he wants to fight, the path of least resistance!
I think they are both deserving of a shot. In an ideal world they fight each other when wiedman beats boetsch to see who fights for the title. Wiedman is an easier fight for bisping than vitor is!

Bisping will take this, he'll fight smart, wear down Vitor and take a decision win.
