Hendricks is a selfish SOB. You can't just KTFO of two top ten opponents in less than a minute, with an ugly win over another sandwiched inbetween, and deserve a titleshot. What kind of skewed perspective is that?
Nick Diaz has done what it takes to fight for the title.
Bisping is not going toe to toe with Vitor. I wish he would but I highly doubt that, unless Vitor is gassed.
Before the Stann fight, I would have given Bisping the advantage in this fight as I think Vitor only does well against one-dimensional strikers and guys with slower footwork; less so with others. But every time I look for him to win dominantly, Bisping underwhelms me, gets caught with a silly punch, and shows his wrestling isn't as good as I think it will be.
I was never on the Bisping hype wagon, but I'm done thinking he'll make big strides between fights. Vitor either crushes him or completely runs out of gas and defeats himself.

Bisping probably gets KTFO against Vitor... His stick and move game wont work against Vitor... Unless Mike goes the wrestling route, he may find some success...
Nick Diaz deserves a shot at GSP's title.
Firstly......HAHAHAHAHA at Bisping.
Does this guy ever go back and watch his matches?
He claims he is hard to hit?
Denis Kang dropped Bisping with a right hand in the first round which stunned Bisping.
Wanderlei Silva flurried Bisping with punches in bunches in the final seconds of the second and third rounds.
Akiyama rocked Bisping and made him stagger in the first round.
Stann caught him with a clean punch and made him stagger.
Dan Henderson threw a punch from a mile away, which everyone saw coming except for Bisping.
Vitor's cardio is being questioned but it's always due to being taken down by wrestlers. Bisping has above average wrestling, but certainly not that great. He mightily struggled taking Stann down, who doesnt really posses the footwork and speed to shrug off TDs. I think Vitor will be prepared for Bisping's TDs and will use his movement to evade them, and counter off those TDs by finding openings to Blitzkrieg Bisping.
hate to go against the grain here, but bisping is one of the better mma boxers currently in the division.
he's just far... far behind belfort in terms of boxing skill, speed, and power.
we know how to beat belfort. to push the pace, take him down, and rough him up. hendo made him look like a little girl, and belfort mentally collapses. bisping is much better at takedowns than belfort is at takedown defense, so that's his best option here. if he tries to stand and band, stick and move or not, he's getting his head knocked off.
Kimbo by flying inverted triangle
Anderson Silva had broken ribs
Jon Fitch is a finisher.
In all seriousness the only chance I give Mikey is to constatntly stick and move and wear Vitor down. If he gets into a rock em sock em toe to toe with VB he will be going to sleep. Especially if it is in the earlier rounds.
