He is 33 years old, soon to be 34.
He has consistently said all he wants is that title shot. He has been chassing the title shot for over 89 months.
Brian Stan and Dan Miller are the best fighters he has beat to date (sorry Leben).
If he loses to Vitor on January 19th, is it safe to say he will never earn a title shot? What happens to Bisping if it becomes clear he cannot beat top a 5 (and maybe even top 10) fighter?
I actualy like Bisping. He has played the role of the guy we love to hate very well. I see this fight against Vitor as the fight for his career.
