I think I've seen just about everyone of Bisping's Fights in the UFC and he's not an elite fighter, IMO. Elite wrestlers are heavily favored against him and I wouldn't favor him in a striking matchup with the upper echelon of the division. No one is buying him being competitive against Weidman.

I like Bisping, but Browns style works because he has power and a chin.

Meh, Bisping's a .500 fighter at best from now on so long as he's fighting other top 10 middleweights.

As much as I would love to see bisping make a title run I don't see it happening or him putting up very many more wins. He has good boxing and decent TD defense but lacks power and athleticism and age is not on his side. I think he finishes out his contract and becomes a color commentator or opens up his own gym. I think he could do a hell of a job with either or both.

Bisping doesn't have the chin to be Matt Brown at MW

Matt Brown doesn't have what it takes to be the Michael Bisping at welterweight. Bisping fought split decisions with Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen. Let's see Brown move up a weight class and do the same with a couple middleweights he wouldn't make it past the first round. Bisping is a bona fide MMA hall of famer and today shows that he isn't done yet. Matt Brown isn't fit to tie the Count's shoelaces.

I think it could be identical. He could beat a bunch of unbanked fighters, call for a title shot and then get beat by a top 10 fighter with a shot at the title on the line.

Bisping and Brown are gatekeepers for their divisions top 10.

Bisping isn't as gritty as Brown. And not nearly as vicious.
