    Where do you think the count's striking ranks compared to opponents anderson has faced in the past? Is he top 3 behind vitor and diaz?

    I know Hendo rekt bisping so hard he's a dank maymay now, but Bisping has pretty good striking despite 0 knockout power

    I had a feeling people were going to say that Hendo is a better striker because he knocked out Bisping and he's a knockout artist.

    But actually, from a technical standpoint Bisping is a much better striker.

    The only two strikers that Anderson has faced that are better than Bisping are Vitor and Diaz.

    To really see how good a striker Bisping is, look at his fight with Cung Le.

    I'm sure people will say that Cung Le is really old and that's why he lost....but he wasn't much older than Bisping and that wealth of martial arts experience doesn't go away. Cung Le will be a dangerous man even when he turns 70.

    For Bisping to completely destroy a striker of that calibre is something most of Andersons opponents could never do.

    Bisbing has more technical footwork, but his refusal to commit to punches and extreme lack of power make him one of the worst strikers out there. He also has pathetic defense to a right hand. He's been dropped by a right hand against every top 25 fighter he's ever fought. Basically he only has cardio and footwork. Hendo is 100x the striker.

    Forrest has several top wins due to his striking. Bisbing has zero top wins due to anything. Any grappler currently in the top ten of any weight class is a better striker than bisbing

    Cung was almost 10 years older than Bisbing you goof and never beat a top ten opponent. There is literally not one single opponent Anderson has fought in the cage that wouldn't have destroyed Cung.

    Bisbing is below quite a few of Andersons former opponents in the striking department I think, Bisbings cardio is fantastic though, and he'll need it in this fight, unless he gets startched early, which I think will happen, but we'll see :-D

    Well, Bisping arguably beat Sonnen and Sonnen outstruck Silva once. There are arguable circumstances out of all of that of course but it did happen.

    When you're fighting someone like Sonnen, your striking is bound to suffer due to his over-the-top use of takedowns.

    Bullshit

    Bisping is a basic predictable striker with fundamental flaws that have been there his entire career. The enormous gulf of kayo power between Hendo(and elite fighters in general) and Bisping has everything to do with technique and very little to do with trt
