    Miller, for all I know, he can hand him a second Hendo.
    I'm not sure man, He's 14-3 in the UFC and 24-3 in total. One thing about Bisping is he's always hard to beat.

    You're thinking of his fiancée, Shelby Walker. She died in 2006, not just prior to the Bisping fight.

    Nitpicking here a bit but it's 11-3, and outside of Akiyama and Kang I can't think of anyone impressive that he's beaten since winning TUF.

    Muñoz kicked ASS. definitely should be on the contender list. and I think him and Chael would make for an interesting fight.

    Alves smoked that newcomer.

    and all I can say about Barao and his hopping back-take is WOW.

    Ah, yeah, thanks man.

    Still, I think he has been fucked up ever since. Probably, his prime is simply over,
    but I think that one cost him the UFC.

    Now, I don't specifically dislike Bisping, but he never impressed me as a spectator. If he manages to beat Miller on another level than the scorecards, though, all the power to him.

    I would say he's consistantly faced harder competition than Mayhem.

    You could also argue that Mayhem has lost every single 'big' fight he's ever had.

    Jake Shields
    Souza x 2
    George St Pierre
    Sonnen

    Bisping's a decent fighter without being particularly outstanding in any area, but his striking power just isn't that great and his submission ability's unproven. I'd put him at a disadvantage against Miller, mainly because Mayhem's tough and is better at ending fights than Bisping is.

    Munoz kicked some serious ass but I don't think he has a shot at beating down Silva. Great fights overall, Alves destroyed that new guy, was impressive

    I would rather see Sonnen vs Munoz. a bit more competitive than Silva vs Munoz. Be a great ground and pound fight I think. Munoz has some serious hands. Almost felt bad for Leben towards the end of the fight

    my feelings exactly. but i think Munoz has more of a power right-hand than Sonnen.
