    Silva could always slip and land on his arm and break it or something like that. Other than that it would be as bad as Silva/Griffin

    I like Bisping, but I don't see him winning at all. He probably wouldn't get KO'd, but he'd lose a dominant decision.

    Hey Bisping how about beating ANY top guy before you challenge the greatest?

    translation: "i probably can't beat most top 10 mw's, so i want to cash in on that title shot soon and get a huge payday before i become irrelevant."

    c'mon man. he beat stann, who some places had ranked #10 :icon_lol:

    Yeah, if he wins Belfort, he will get his title shot... Dana White said that... If he fights Anderson, he probably will get brutally knocked out on the same way that Hendo did...

    I don't give him much of a chance at all but possibly if he works his wrestling he can steal a round or two - ultimately Anderson will finish him.

    I really doubt he has what it takes to beat Belfort, and I know he doesn't have what it takes to beat Anderson. Weidman is a MUCH more interesting match up for Silva.

    Not so different from anyone else. At least a L v Silva means you get paid :icon_lol:.

    Still has to get by Vitor and maybe Weidman before a fight with Silva.

    Bisping has recently been saying he actually wants to fight Anderson and get his chance...

    The problem is he doesn't seem confident in slightest about winning, nor does he come off as it's realistic at all....This is every time he speaks about the match up. He just seems like someone who wants to get to the end of the road, rather than actually win.

    The fight just doesn't carry any interest for me.

    Bisping has looked great recently, including in his fight against Sonnen. I still just can't see him getting passed Vitor.

    I agree, Bisping relies on his striking and it's hard to be confident when you know the other fighter is 10x better than you at that skill.

    Sure, Bisping, now wait in line until you define yourself as a high level fighter.
