Does this pre-fight remind anyone of Tito vs Randy? Tito would be Bisping and Randy would be Hendo. Maybe history will repeat itself??? ('');
At the very least a reenactment of the spanking would be spectacular.
If Bisping win--man I just might have to him mute, because I don't know if I can withstand the gloating, that I'm sure would ensue. I've defended Bisping quite a bit, but he really does seem to go out of his way to be unlikable, and he seems to be completely oblivious as to why.
I actually give Bisping a really good chance in this fight. Bisping studies a lot of film, and there's a ton of film on Dan. I think he can be a bit predictable just loading up on the big right hand, when sometimes he should be pushing to work the clinch and taking guys down.
I tend to agree with you regards Bisping's recent tirade of mouthiness. I've always been a supporter of his, but after seeing him on TUF, although we all know that some editing can skew opinion if done in a certain manner, I have to say he came across as a bit of a d***.
One thing that particularly annoyed me about his chat was he constant reference to the UK team as 'England' - which although can be explained away somewhat given the fighters were all from England, is disrespectful to the rest of the UK.
That all being said, he's certainly not unique in his arrogance and cockiness, there are a ton of MMA fighters out there who certainly give him a run for his money regards those personality traits, I think it just annoys certain people in the fanbase more due to his nationality, and of course, THAT fight we never tire of hearing.
I said it before the Leben fight, that I kinda hope he goes get beat so that we get a break from all the bashing he gets on here - despite the fact it's apparently against the rules.
