    Bisping has all the tools to take Alan to a decision victory, but striking-wise, he always seems to find himself in bad positions and will give Alan alot of looks. Bisping isn't the "shutdown" fighter like Okami was, so Alan is going to get alot of muay thai opportunities in the clinch(which Bisping will probably look to engage) and if Bisping tries to kickbox like he had in the Belfort bout, I think Belcher will have opportunities to light Bisping up.

    I think Bisping should probably get the UD if he abides by the gameplan he'll need to win, but sometimes he just strays and that's when he gets into big trouble.

    I read this whole thing as smoke and mirrors. He doesn't want Belcher to prepare for a tactical fight, since tactics seem to be a weakness in his preparation--judging from the mismanagement of the Okami bout.

    Alan has a much better variety and hits harder, but he's not as accurate as Bisping, and he doesn't take as good angles.

    Not to mention Okami.

    I've always thought Belcher was a stronger grappler than a striker, and I've got him lightyears ahead of Pip in that department.

    Bisping doesn't have Okami's top game. I don't know that anyone does at MW, maybe sonnen.

    I do think that Belcher wants the fight on the ground, I just hope he doesn't pull guard so ineffectively this time.

    I agree...I think their striking is about even, in different areas. But I think Bisping is the more effective defensive, peck-and-run points fighter, overall, and uses his length better.

    I hope Belcher has a better plan than rewatching HOSS's repop gif of the Hendo KO over and over again.

    But I'll be amazed if Bisping comes to brawl, or even engage in the pocket for very long.

    Bisping pokes belcher in the eye "by accident", then coasts to a decision while belcher blinks and squints.

    Bisping is a very smart fighter going for a dec, but haven't seen the finisher side of him ever legally.lol.

    bisping should beat belcher in my opinion. i think he's good enough on the feet to avoid belcher's big punches and he's savvy enough on the ground not to get submitted. i think the count wins a UD on this one. if not, his days as a top mw in the UFC are over i think.

    Huh...whaddyaknow lol. Thanks, totally gapped on that one. Still as I recall he was on the ground with him a lot and I stick by that as a testament to his grappling. Now that you have pointed out my glaring mistake I am wondering if I recall this fight properly at all.
