    Agreed. People here are always saying he is an overrated has been.

    At 185 the only fighter that can beat him IMO is obviously Silva.

    Belfort is too fast for most middleweight. Bisping didn't stand a chance

    I seriously could not understand why people were so confident in Bisping in the first place. But yeah Vitor's awesome, man.

    Really? I've always thought he was ridiculously overrated due to his lack of top wins, but he finally has a top 10 win so I guess I can't hate on him too much anymore :icon_neut

    It's mostly Anderson Silva haters discrediting Vitor by saying he has no win at MW on a technicality (conveniently discounting Rich Franklin and Rumble Johnson finishes because it doesn't suit their argument. Vitor also fought at catchweight to accomodate Rich)
