Also, I actually think alot of us had Bisping besting Vitor(I was one) by weathering the early storm by using his wrestling and clinchwork in close and utilizing his superior pacing to press Vitor into the later rounds, where he'd gas Vitor until he could just outwork him to a decision or late stoppage. There's no shame in losing to Vitor, but I don't think we'll see him against a top guy for a few fights at least.
Also, do you have your 6 month name change ready to give me if Rampage wins? I've gotta start of thinking of a good one(just nothing crude)
Glover is looking sharp.... Training with guys like Liddell and Machida can only help his cause... While Rampage did look fat and under motivated to me... I think I may sit this one out.
