Bisping finally got his first top 10 win after how many years in the UFC?
Boetsch tallied his second with his victory over Okami.
Fighters prove their worth from the opponents they overcome. Heart can win over skillset any given night on any given card.
Are you saying that Lombard was his 2nd top 10 win b/c he fought Okami then Lombard. The best fighter he beat before Okami was Kendall Grove. I agree that sometimes heart and determination can win fights that you usually wouldnt win. When you want something more and take chances sometimes it pays off.
The point I was trying to make is that b/c he beat Okami and Split Dec'd Lombard who clearing wasnt his normal self, all of a sudden everyone thinks he can beat Vitor and Bisping and everyone else for that matter. We will see when he gets schooled by Weidman. Maybe then he fights the loser of Bisping and Vitor and gets schooled again.
