Prediction: wrong Silva   wrong Decision  

I really like this fight. Fight Pass gets a big main event! I think Bisping has a better chance now than ever before, with Silva being 40 and off whatever vitamins he was on, but Silva is top 3 all-time for a reason. He's too slick.

8 years in the making! Let's go Bisping!! I imagine the UFC's underwhelmed with FP numbers right now. Between this and Poirier/Duffy it seems like they've gotten people's attention.

WAR BISPING!

Can't believe Silva's on Fight Pass, either they really want to sell it or they're really annoyed with his PED bust, or both.

First the Poirier vs Duffy fight, now this. I guess they realized quality content will Get subscribers on Fight Pass. 

As for the fight itself, both guys are kind of fading into irrelevancy as far as the MW division goes but, Bisping is getting a big fight and name he deserves for one more push at a title run. It's an interesting stylistic matchup, no matter how gone Anderson is I don't think we can imagine him losing to Bisping but at the same time this is the fight Bisping has been frothing over for almost a decade.

I'd say Anderson should beat Bisping, even at 40 years old.

Maybe Anderson doesn't annihilate Bisping the way he would have a few years back, but I'd be shocked if Anderson doesn't still beat Bisping by a pretty healthy margin.

Prediction: correct Bisping   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 3  

I think Bisping wins a decision due to having better cardio at this point. Anderson is obviously not what he once was, but I'm sure he still has the ability to KO Bisping, but with Anderson's chin having left him (Weidman KO, and Weidman rematch where he was basically KO'd in the clinch in the 1st round) I wouldn't be surprised to see Bisping KO Anderson. I'll pick Bisping by decision, but this is a very interesting fight on paper.

Prediction: wrong Silva   wrong KO/TKO   wrong Round 1  

And you say that because? When have you ever seen Anderson tired? He just came out of a 5 rounder with Nick Diaz, a cardio taxing affair and looked fresh all through. I know PED, etc, but since we haven't seen how Anderson looks off the juice yet and he's never had any cardio issues I'm going to assume his gas tank is solid until proven otherwise. As for his chin (which you decided is gone because of one fight vs. a hard hitter like The Chris), I don't see that being an issue against Bisping. Not exactly Roy Nelson, if you get my drift. Bisping's volume isn't a great formula for beating Anderson and Bisping's been looking more hittable lately.

Not saying Bisping doesn't have a chance, but if you're banking on Anderson not having enough in the gas tank or his chin giving in, I think you're barking up the wrong tree since both Anderson's history and Bisping's style say the complete opposite.

Also, I wouldn't bank on Anderson's age catching up with him either (unless he has indeed been juiced to the gills for his whole career and suddenly isn't), since Bisping's not exactly a spring chicken himself.

Bisbing in his heart is still a Manchester street thug from the 90s (reminiscent of characters in movies 'snatch' and 'lock stock and two smoking barrels'. He has a family to provide for I don't blame him  relocating to up his game. When u got a family you need to do whatever it takes
