Default Bisping talks Silva and Liddell

Quote:
****
Going off topic for just a minute... as a middleweight contender I feel I have to comment about the performance from Anderson Silva and Thales Leites from the weekend.

My teammate Cheick Kongo had another great win (well done mate!) on the card and I stayed up late to see him in action. I was very happy for him, I know how hard he worked and he richly deserves his success.

But I wasn’t impressed at all with the main event. You never want to disrespect fellow fighters, much less two contesting a UFC world title, but I think both guys should hang their heads in shame, quite honestly. Leites probably won the first two rounds but nothing happened in the fight.

I fought on the first card in Montreal last April, and the Canadians are tremendous supporters of the UFC. They deserved a hell of a lot better than they got from these two. I've seen more aggression from my fiancé when she hits the January sales.

It was very frustrating for me to be sitting on my couch seeing Anderson Silva, who keeps saying how he’s gone through the middleweight division. I would have fought harder than both of them put together, and so would a lot of other middleweights.

****
Finally, I want to say a big ‘thank you’ to Chuck Liddell. If Saturday was the last time we’ll see the Iceman in the Octagon, then he can retire knowing he will be remembered as the Muhammad Ali or Sugar Ray Robinson of MMA.

The guy is a legend, I like him personally, and myself and every mixed martial artist owes the Iceman a big debt of gratitude for paving the way for all of us to compete on the massive stage the UFC is today.

Thank you, Chuck.
If he isn't careful he's going to gain my respect! LOL

His fights are never action packed. He did nothing vs Leben except back peddle and counter punched. If Leben never came forward how would that match have went lol. HE only beat Hammil because of his home turf.

With some of you the guy can never win!

I thought the line:

"i have seen more agression from my fiance in the January sales"

was a particular highlight.

If Bisping can beat Hendo, then ill tip him to beat the Spider.

There's nothing wrong with Bisping. I just didn't like the way he treated Hamill after their fight a long while ago. But it's been quite a while since then, and there's no need to hate on him anymore.

I still think he should focus on just training for Hendo, because I am still in the belief that the only man at 185 pounds that can beat the Spider is Hendo, not Bisping.

never really liked bisping, but he has improved ..... will he be champ? who knows, but he is training with good guys so he will get better ... i watched the bisping/hamill fight the other day and still don't know how the judges gave it to him ... whatever though, he was fighting at a weight class higher ... i think henderson beats him, but it is going to be a close decision ...

I agree with everything he said, especially this...

"I've seen more aggression from my fiancé when she hits the January sales."
