Bisping was recently featured as a guest analyst on FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight” weekly news program and broke down the Silva vs. Sonnen rematch as well as made a prediction on who he believes will come out victorious in the bout. Read Bisping’s prediction for the UFC 148 main event below.
“As we all know, styles make fights. And Chael Sonnen’s style as a fighter is a bad recipe for Anderson Silva. Yeah, you have to be a madman to bet against Anderson Silva, the guy continues to win fights, and every time he does it he looks like something out of a video game. But if you look at the previous fight Chael does very, very well for a long time. I believe the fact he did so well for so long is going to give Chael a lot of confidence. He’s going to come into this fight very, very confident and that’s a big thing in a fight.”
“Confidence is a huge thing. And I think it’s a bad style match up, and with the confidence, I think Chael gets the job done.”
Also on the show, the other “UFC Tonight” analyst Kenny Florian chose for Sonnen to end Silva’s legendary title reign.
Do you agree with Bisping’s breakdowns of the fight? Will Sonnen’s strong performance in the first bout transfer into enough confidence that he will be able to execute the same game plan except this time, take the belt?
