    Bisping has very underrated wrestling and a strong top game. Its possible that he grinds Belfort out as Belfort has shown to beubg susceptible to wrestlers in the past. Would it surprise you if he did?

    It's unlikely but possible. I doubt Bisping holds Vitor down though, he's very active with strikes when he's on top so he's liable to lose position.

    I would be surprise but Bisping is no Randy Couture, Couture was able to do that to Vitor. I would be more surprise is Bisping KOs Vitor, but that won't happen. Vitor by brutal KO first round, or Bisping UD due to Vitor gassing.

    I find this the most likely event actually.

    It won't happen. Belfort is too good off his back and has stellar TDD. Bisping is no prime Tito as far as "offensive" wrestling.

    I have been a little depressed lately. A UFC100-esque KO of Bisping by Vitor would really lift my spirits.

    The only thing that mike has improved on consistently is his wrestling but I don't know. Vitor might overpower him there. At least for r1 and probably most of r2. Vitor is probably twice as strong

    bisping is going to be very wary of vitor's power, he's going to be on his bicycle the whole fight.

    very seriously doubt he'll risk getting close enough to belfort to wrestle or grapple, he's going to be sniping from the outside the whole time.

    I would not be surprised if he did, I just do not see it happening though.

    Tbh I think it's most likely, bispings GNP is pretty good and he usually mixes it up pretty well that he can get the takedowns fairly often.

    Possible, but again unlikely. Bisping has some of the best defensive bjj in the division. I think it gets decided on the feet, which is why I think Belfort wins (hope i'm wrong though.)

    Doubt Belfort is interested in burning energy by wrasslin'. Hopefully he'll make Bisping pay for takedown attempts.

    It would be a pleasant surprise none the less but it would be a surprise to me if Bisping took down Belfort,like the fight on right now and there no way I thought Lentz would dominate Nunes.
