I love you Tacos, but for the love of god, pull out your ear plugs, put down your fanboy foam finger and your union jack shades for a moment okay?  BISPING NEVER FOUGHT A REAL CONTENDER. That is a undisputed fact.  Stop living in denial.

10-9 St. Pierre

WOO HOO!

Georges looks dynomite tonight boy.  He hasn't lost a step.  Granted it is the first round, but my god, he was calm cool and collected.  And Bisping looks shook.

Bisping getting his ass beat. He's gotta adjust this round or it's gonna be too late. Getting down to GSP early is a bad way to win the fight.

2-0 GSP

GSP looked visibly tired at the end there. All that muscle is starting to have its drawback.

GSP looks like he is getting tired. Bisping was taking over that round towards the end.
