it's not "sleeping" on Bisping to point out that in the last 5 years he is 0fer fighting anyone top 7.
he beat Stann, who was #8 at the time.
the second he actually beats someone better than decent, many (including me) will be forced re-analyze. until then, he's merely better than mediocre. and it's not like we're talking about a new fighter; we have 7 years of evidence
to analyze to support this conclusion.
that doesn't mean Bisping "sucks". he's clearly better than most. and i think that's the problem most sherdoggers have; if you're not 'great' then you 'suck'. but all evidence shows that he's simply not quite *great* (or *elite* or whatever "better than most" adjective you want to use there)
