Michael "The Count" Bisping wrote an editorial
for UFC.com, in which he has a few gems for Matt Hamill and shoots back at an English boxing writer who decided to drop some bombs on MMA.
I won't reproduce the entire thing here, but...
"Basically, [McGuigan is] saying a boxer is better at boxing than a MMA fighter is. Errr… yeah, that’s why it is 'mixed martial arts', Barry, and not 'boxing'."
You really don't need the "rolleyes" emote at the end of that sentence, do you? Priceless.
"You may have heard that a certain TUF 3 dropout was calling me out last week. [...]The fighter in question - I forget his name - is a good wrestler but has no BJJ and couldn’t strike a match."
"[...]this guy calling me out had one fight that looked like two drunks scrapping outside a kebab shop on a Friday night."
Provided Bisping continues to improve in the cage, I think he could really become "the English Chuck Liddell" in terms of marketability.
I know Sinosic is seen as a stepping stone (sorry, Elvis) but I'm nevertheless looking forward to seeing how Bisping's game is developing. Let's not forget that Sinosic once submitted Jeremy Horn and fought Babalu to a Decision.
UFC 70 gets more and more interesting. And I'm still chuckling about "two drunks scrapping outside a kebab shop." Bisping recalling younger days, perhaps..?
