“Bisping is a scrapper, man, and that’s one thing people don’t really realize. You can’t watch a Bisping tape and get a true appreciation for just how good he really is until you’re in there. And by then, it’s usually too late. He’s very tricky and he’s a lot better than what he looks. You underestimate him because he doesn’t look strong but he’s surprisingly pretty strong. For me, I think the pressure Chael Sonnen brings is hard to match with his offense, takedowns, ground and pound, hand in the face and dropping elbows and shots. It kind of wears down a fighter. And, if he does that to Bisping too much, I think he’ll be able to maul him.”
While making the media rounds promoting this weekend’s UFC on FOX 2 card, headliner, Rashad Evans gave his prediction for the evening’s co-main event between Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping to BleacherReport.com.
