On paper, the matchup between Bisping and Miller would appear to be a classic striker vs. grappler affair. Bisping has a solid kickboxing pedigree and his takedown defense has allowed him to keep fights where he needs them. Throughout his career, Miller has used wrestling and pressure to gain the edge on his opponents. But even in those departments, “The Count” feels his opponent is outmatched.
"I'm a better striker," Bisping said. "I’m 10 times the boxer he will ever be. I’m a better kickboxer and wrestler. I’m bigger, stronger and faster than he is. I’m more athletic and experienced. I’ve fought in the UFC for over six years. Miller's big thing is the ground game, but I’ve fought in jiu-jitsu in one form or another since I was 8 years old. I’ve never been submitted in my life, so I don’t see him having the advantage there.
"He's good at taking the back and choking people out, but I guarantee you right now that won't be happening. I'll end up taking him down and pounding him out. I've watched him and he has no attacks from his back. I've got this guy beat in all areas."
