I believe the counter argument to this mr sir sir that one could make is that the vast majority of Yoels wins are either 3rd round finishes or decisions. Including 2 over top 10 competition in machida and brunson. He seldom finishes in the first 2 rounds.

Was thinking the same thing Mr Meow, especially when his last win was a third round annihilation of Chris Weidman.

I also agree with those that said it's ridiculous that people defend this guy while trashing on Woodley.

mike has become an ultra legit fighter..


His confidence must be at an all time high... he is not scared.. he feels accomplished as a fighter...


I think he has at least 1-2 more solid performances in his career...


I dont see him losing the belt in his next defence...


Prepare yourselves to be surprized.

Based on his last fight I say Bisping can capitalize on Yoel's lack of aggression, and cut him off that he can win. But that is a tall order given how much of a difficult time he had with Tim Kennedy's grappling. Even Leites managed to put him on his butt, also speaking of the Leites fight. Even though Leites couldn't cut off Bisping he managed to land some good shots up against the cage. Samething happened when Anderson was moving in on Bisping; Bisping may have good foowork, but seems to have a hard time maintaining space unlike machida. Speaking of Machida, Romero closed that distance very well, and cut off the cage against him too. I just imagine, that if Yoel doesn't underestimate Bisping, and uses his wrestling, and fights more aggressively that he should win. The only problem is Bispings output and volume, but Romero's wrestling and ground n' pound can't be denied. If Romero gets on top, it is pretty much game over for Bisping, and I believe the strategy should to be able to look to use the clinch take Bisping down, and just beat him up on the mat. Also pick your shots when moving forward; the thing is Romero tends to lull, and i'm not sure if Bisping will allow Romero to take a break, I believe he will be on whenever Romero takes his foot off the gas.

Something I thought Weidman would do more of, but I think he was worried about Yoel's power and wrestling. Either way Romero is good at countering just look at his fight with Tavares, when Tavares looks to move in, he crushes him with an Elbow. I think Romero will use his wrestling and hit Bisping with a shot that makes think before moving forward.

He almost killed Jacare a lesser man would have died, Machida was doing ok until Yoel flipped the switch just like he would do to Bisping. Also he did the same to CapitolOne Withholdings, he wrecked his forehead in a split second, until Yoel quits taking whatever substance he is taking no one will ever beat this 41 year old monster.

Romero won a shitty decision over jacare, and had to cheat to make it close. The dude held the fence long enough to lose s point and completely change the momentum of the fight. He pokes eyes like jones, extends rounds like silva, and shits his pants like chuck. An aware ref wont let this shit happen, and if he does bisping wi go spit on his gay jesus cornermen. Maybe he'll even land a legal knee while romero is getting up like he did back in the day qgainst rivera

BrazilianDude wrote:still can't believe this guy is holding a belt...

I have a question for all the wise linkers out there....

since I haven't been paying a lot of attention to MMA these days ( I let others watch the fights and when people say the fight was awesome I go and watch it), does anybody else here has the feeling that we are living one of the worse eras of MMA when it comes to talent??

I was thinking about all great fighters from 2000 to 2010 and even late 90's ,and I think that if they were all in their prime today they would smash all those ''top'' guys from today...

a prime BJ would terrorize his division today, same goes for prime gsp, anderson, machida, even guys like randy and hughes ( I might be wrong there)....wanderley, cro cop etc...even chuck ( before glass jaw ), shogun, RDA, JDS etc

it is crazy to think that those guys in their prime would simply dismantle all divisions in the UFC today?

or am I just too old school and refusing to see that today we are better off than yesterday?

man, michael bisping? really? come on.....really really?? ronda?? ( a couple of months ago, not now)......connor??
WTF? no, just no !!

a lot more money involved in promotion, a lot more money being made, a lot more money being paid to fighters...

and a lot fucking harder for old fans like myself to watch a good exciting fight...

most of the excitement I get from fights today is watching whoever the UFC has hyped as the ''best ever'' getting exposed! And that is sad !!

I'll probably retire as a fan as soon as the Mcgregor train is permanently derailed....anybody with me?


I haven't been watching as much mma either and I get what you're saying about the old days and kind of feel the same way, but it's probably wrong.
I think the older guys used to really dominate in one area and if they could dictate the style of the fight, they would outclass the other guy. A lot of guys had an obvious flaw in their game, it was mostly a matter of someone being able to exploit it. I think most guys now are probably more well rounded, but at the cost of not having one really strong skill. They start practicing more skills earlier, but without the focus to really develop an area. The result is a lot of the guys can neutralize the other guys skills.
Another thing is that a lot more fighters are taking their conditioning more seriously. A guy like Tito could take over a fight after the other guy gassed and completely faded.

Bj had crazy flexibility and control of his legs for his bjj, combined with heavy hands - conditioning was an issue for a long time. Not sure how a prime BJ would do.
GSP and Machida were/are well rounded, but both were heavily criticized for not finishing fights - lack of one strike ko power.
Randy used strategy to expose a guy like Sylvia, not sure how he would do against a healthy Cain or JDS (or Jon Jones at LHW).
Hughes was a strong dude that could outwrestle almost every WW. He developed some submissions, but I don't think anybody feared his striking.


As for Bisping, after losing a bunch of fights to guys who used TRT, he's just looking to cash in. Can't blame a guy for wanting to take the :moneybag: fights. He'll take the fight he's most likely to win. It's not his fault the UFC doesn't have a clear path to the title.
