    Sorry, but Bisping wasn't showing he was still in the fight at all.

    Deal with it.

    Bisping looked like he saw Jesus.

    I still say we give Bisping to A Silva. I mean just book it like 3 weeks for his real title defense.

    This, Bisping turtled up. Dan stepped in, backed off to give Bisping another sec or 2, then vitor landed elbow to ribs and then he stopped it

    People need to stop saying early stoppage, unless the guy is out cold or taps, people always say early stoppage. He was out of it and offered no defense. Dan stepped in at the right time. Bisping said NOTHING about the stoppage

    Bisping himself thanked the ref for the stoppage.

    I'd still like to see The Count get manhandled by Anderson.

    Agreed. Realistically Mirg could have let it go 5-10 seconds longer at best. Bisping showed respet for a great, calculated performance and so should everyone else.

    I thought it could have went a little longer, wouldn't have made any difference in the outcome though. Dan M was awful tonight.

    A righteous victory for Vitor and Jesus. Bisping is always classy after a fight ..... except one time.

    By this logic the Dollaway should have won by TKO in the second round.

    That's Bisping, Mr. Respect and Class. :redface:

    Just cause he admits he got smashed doesn't excuse all this other insulting, laughable behavior.

    Really? Did it look identical to the stoppage that just happened?

    Ask yourself that, friend.

    ?

    Getting back up even while recieving shots is a little better than curling up in a fetal position after dropping like a rock.

    ....you can't be serious.
