There can be one of many things keeping Michael Bisping on the list of underrated strikers.
Maybe it's his lack of knockout power. Maybe it's because he gets rocked in almost every one of his fights. The knockout suffered at the hands of Dan Henderson still lingers in fans' minds whenever his next fight is announced. Or maybe fans just don't like him for his attitude.
Whatever it is, Bisping still remains one of the most underrated strikers in the sport. He has used his standup to beat opponents like Chris Leben, Jorge Rivera, Yoshihiro Akiyama and Dan Miller. Many of his fights are fought exclusively on the feet.
Without having any considerable KO power, he takes on the same distinctions as fighters like Frankie Edgar. With constant movement and fast hands, he is able to keep his opponents on the outside for the majority of the fight.
He does make very blatant mistakes sometimes, but he has shown he can also be very successful on the feet. He will need to if he ever has plans of fighting guys like Anderson Silva or Vitor Belfort.
