Bisping is 19-3 his 2 most recent losses are to heavy strikers in Dan Henderson and Wanderlai Silva. Bisping loves to dance in the ring and use his boxing to out point his opponets and eventually go for a TKO. Yoshihiro Akiyama is 13-2 and he just had his first match in the Octagon which was a stand up battle with Chris Leben. Sexyama can take a beating as the Leben fight showed. Akiyama has a very good ground game and if he comes out with a game play for a win rather than putting on a show he should be superior on the ground. Bisping does not have the KO power to take out Akiyama. Take Akiyama at +160 odds as a great value play.
