Default Michael Bisping

I just came across this piece of info and it kinda pissed me off. I think its great that the winner of Bisping/Hendo gets a title shot, but why in England. Do they automatically think Bisping is going to win? It seems like they cater to him a lot. I know he is a big draw over there but....WTF.

JMO.

If the card is weak they are guaranteed to sell out the arena with the gate if Bisping is fighting. It will be a huge pay day for the UFC. Silva is not really a draw anywhere.

I wouldn't worry about it too much...Bisping is not going to beat Hendo.

I don't think he will either. Hendo is my second favorite fighter....wonder who my first is? haha. Seriously though, Bisping hasn't fought anyone like Hendo before.

Thats all he ever fights on are UK cards. When he losses to Hendo he will still be on that card and hyped big time.

It makes sense, Britains biggest MMA star against a Brazilian as the main fight would probably be best put in England over USA.

However i have seen Bisping fight here more than i care to mention, i want the best American fighters over here performing.

Rampage and Hendo really was a treat for us!

I don't think Bisping should be allowed to have any fights across the pond. Henderson could submit Bisping and the judges would still declare Bisping the winner. I have no confidence in the impartiality of British judges after the Bisping-Hamill fight.

Hamill absoultely won that fight. Haven't really cared for Bisping after that. I know it wasn't him, it was the judges. I think they wanted to please the British crowd. To bad they won't be able to please the crowd when Hendo knocks him out.

Only way I see Bisping winning if he has the same strat as he did against Lebon. I say Bisping is a better striker than Hendo,but I think Hendo's toughness and grit will overwork Bispings technique.

Again, neither deserved the win in Bisping v Hamill, so i dont blame the judges for that one.

coulda gone either way
