Lets put aside the 'anything can happen category' as that applies to all fighters equally and so is of no greater value to any. Lets also admit Anderson is the GOAT MW and so any chance we talk about is remote. this is not about who can beat Anderson. it is about who has the skill set to give them even the remote chance. Now that leaves the question...of the remote chances to win is Bisping the only ranked MW with no real chance to win? Is he potentially the easiest fight for Anderson with the least risk? 2. Chael Sonnen - has wrestling and top game to potentially grind out decision win with td's and top control 3. Chris Weidman - if he can get his td's poses genuine threat of subs or decision win 4. Michael Bisping - does not have td's nor striking to tko or decision beat Anderson 5. Tim Boetsch - punchers chance. Has enough power. 6. Mark Munoz - punchers chance. GnP chance if he can put Anderson on his back. 7. Vitor Belfort - punchers chance 8. Yushin Okami - similar to Bisping. No real area he can foreseeable win in but arguably better tds and ability to keep Anderson on ground for decision win. 9. Luke Rockhold - has wrestling chops to MAYBE try and execute Sonnan game plan. 10. Brian Stann - punchers chance ------- Lets be real. Anderson is not losing at MW other then by upset. By my analysis Bisping and maybe Okami have the least tools to threaten Anderson and potentially get that upset and yet Anderson is lobbying hard for a fight with Bisping. What say you?
