    I guess being a top 10 fighter means you're a legend nowadays. :D

    Anderson Silva: "I'm champion for a long time. I know, I understand you frustration for never go for the belt but this is your chance. You need to prove for the people."

    When has Bisping obtained a status of a legend? Sure he's been in the game for as long as he has and has put together some decent wins but has never been at the top.

    Much like Chael he is actually more fun outside of the cage

    Look how friendly Anderson is outside the cage, I hope he schools Bisping.

    He has the 3rd most wins in UFC history. And when he retires probably the most ever as on GSP and Matt Hughes are above him. That's pretty legendary

    No need to hope my friend, Bisping is in for an ass kicking.

    To be fair the term legend is so vague. Some people. In fact a lot of people here have 50 or so guys they would call a legend. People would call Tank Abbott a legend and if that's the case Bisping is far more worthy.
     
  7. I respect Anderson but I have never felt that his 'nice' persona is genuine, he may certainly be nice in real life but he doesn't come off that way to me and he's been accused by several fighter of being a 'fake nice guy'.

    Maybe his nice guy persona is fake, maybe not. We can't read the guys heart so we can only judge by his actions and in that instance, Silva was the much more classy individual

    No not really, it speaks to longevity, it's in no way shape or form legendary. Maybe if he would have won just a few of his high profile fights but he always came up short when he stepped up in competition

    I agree. And I will give Bisping credit. He doesn't really have any "bad" losses so to speak. He always beats the guys he should beat. Most guys at some point in their career have an "off" night and lose to someone they shouldn't. Mike always beats inferior competition. However, like you said, he could never make that step into the top 5. He never won a high profile fight. I don't think this will be any different. Old or not, Anderson is still a better fighter than Bisping.

    Bisping is the very definition of gatekeeper.

    • A famous or important person who is known for doing something extremely well
    • An extremely famous or notorious person, especially in a particular field


    Not really. People might use it improperly but everyone should be in consensus for the most part on someone being a legend.

    Bisping is an above average fighter. Nothing extraordinary or legendary about him.

    Bisping made mma and the UFC explode in the UK and has the 3rd most wins in the organisations history. Sounds like a UFC legend to me.

    Pretty good promo, actually.

    Much better than the lame UFC 196 one.
