"Far be it from me to look past Vitor," said Bisping. "I'm trying to make this fight more significant. I'm concerned that I've got my hands full. It's not going to be easy. We're fighting in Brazil. He hits hard. But I think I'll weather the storm and he'll become a punching bag."

"It's well documented, rightly or wrongly, that Vitor gasses quickly," said Bisping. "He does slow down after the first round. Obviously, early for me is going to be the most dangerous. The longer the fight goes, he'll start turning into a walking punching bag. At least that's the plan. It's easier said than done. He's going to come out hard and fast, and he will be dangerous. He's a big middleweight. He's been a heavyweight (tournament) champion, and was a light heavyweight champion back in the day. But these are the kind of fights I'm going to take if I want to back up my talking.

"I feel like I'm in my prime," said Bisping, who turns 34 in three months. "I relocated to Southern California. I've really enjoyed my training here. I've got new training partners and the more time I spend here, the more good people I find to train with. I'm training smarter instead of harder. I've got a long time left in my career."

Careful or that punching bag will pound you in the back of your head til you're unconscious! But seriously it will.

He's actually cashed those checks pretty well over his UFC career.

If the fight gets Stopped in the first round then it's likely Vitor by KO/TKO.

But I think we will see Bisping come in with a game plan that will involve him avoiding Vitor in the first and then turning up the pressure and aggresion in rounds 2 and 3. Bisping has a good chance of winning this is he is smart. He just needs to avoid vitors heavy hands early in the fight.

The count by split decision. Phone Post

Good fight, looking forward to it. Bispings a solid fighter, well rounded and conditioned but it has been shown he is vulnerable to a flurry. Wand had most of his success against The Count from vintage berzerker attacks and if Belfort employs that tactic, Bisping can't leave his chin out because a Vitor Belfort flurry is one of the most dangerous things in MMA.

Vitor has had the rep of gassing but I find he did well against Jones, yes he did slow down a bit but it was not too bad.

I hate Bisping. There was an article about him on MMA fighting today, in which he was saying he doesn't want to be the UFC fighter with most fights but no title fights. And then he was saying how they should make his fight with Vitor for the interim title.

I've never liked him, but the barefaced shamelessness of this were particularly abhorrent.
