| | Mike Bisping- should he cut weight to fight at 185?
Mike Bisping is one of my favorite fighters.- Not based solely on his performance on TUF. I have watched several of his fights from cage rage and I beleive he should of been invited straight to Pride or UFC w/out having to go through the whole TUF b/s. It sure did get his name out there to the general MMA fans quick though. I think Bisping could make 185 if he truly wanted to. I think it suits him best. I just do not see him being able to handle GNP (or LNP) from the big LHW's like Tito Ortiz,Rashad Evans, etc. Don't get me wrong he is far more skilled around the board than a Rashad but the size differential is enormous. Rich Franklin probably walks around at a higher weight than Bisping, and with proper guidance he never has had a problem making 185. I say if Bisping would cut to 185 he would be could be top a top 5 guy right away. At 205 it is going to be a much harder time attaining the belt. Guys like Liddell, Sobral,Ortiz,and even Evans I believe could have their way with Mike B. I mean if Brandon Lee Hinkle can cut to 205, Bisping can make 185. I say get down to 185 have about 3 straight wins and he could have a title shot at either Franklin(or A. Silva). Either match would be exciting and highly competitive. Just my 2 cents. Thoughts??????????
