UFC Fight Night 55 Luke Rockhold vs Michael Bisping Prediction – This event takes place on November 8th, 2014 at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. UFN 55 features a main event fight between Luke Rockhold vs. Michael Bisping.
My prediction for this fight is #5 Luke Rockhold, but it is not going to be an easy fight. Both of these fighters fell victim to TRT Vitor’s wrath and made the highlight reel in a bad way. #9 Michael Bisping is obviously more seasoned in the UFC than Rockhold, but Rockhold is no joke.
In the past 5 years, Rockhold has only lost once. Before his loss to TRT Vitor, he beat Kennedy, Jardine and Souza. Many people believe Souza is next in-line for a title shot. He recently destroyed Boetsh and Philipou in his last two fights. I think he is going to give a lot of people problems in the Middle Weight division.
Michael Bisiping needs zero introduction. The guy is a star and has been since winning TUF. Does he have what it takes to beat a younger hungrier fighter like Rockhold? Bisiping seriously injured his eye, which will be a life long issue he needs to deal with. He looked awesome in his last fight against now HGH cleared Cung, but Cung is past his prime and fighting while into his forties.
The key fight to observe is the Bisping vs Kennedy fight. Kennedy won that fight by wrestling Bisiping for 5 rounds. Rockhold obviously knows Kennedy’s style well, as he beat him in the past. He should be able to implement the same game plan Kennedy did, on Bisping.
