Things could get a little chilly in the locker rooms at UFC 152 – at least if Michael Bisping and Joseph Benavidez are sharing space.

Putting it mildly, Bisping didn't appreciate the UFC flyweight's off-the-cuff remark that he was a harder puncher.

"That smug-faced little t--- in a prepubescent boy's body needs to shut the f--- up because I'll take the Pepsi Challenge with that short-ass any day of the week," Bisping told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio).

Benavidez made his claim at the end of a recent video blog shot for the UFC. While watching a promo for UFC 152, his longtime training partner Urijah Faber asks him if he hits harder than "The Count."

"Yes, I hit harder than Bisping," Benavidez answers.

Joey B answered the question truthfully......I have no problem with that......plus, its no secret that Bisping has pillow hands. Whether he wants to admit that or not is up to him. Wouldn't be the first time someone got defensive about the truth

This seems to tell a story of Bisping starting shit, yet again. It isn't specific enough for me to know that Bisping didn't start talking first, but it looks like he's going after their whole team essentially. I could be wrong about the order of operations here, but from how I saw things, it looks like Bisping is talking shit to an entire camp of people 40 pounds lighter than him. Big man.

Michael Bisping is a bandaid.

Did I use that racial slur correctly?

I mean they are trained fighters. Someone made a crack about him maybe they shouldn't have fired the first shot at a bigger guy.

Power puncher? No.

But he hits hard enough that 14 of 22 wins have come by KO or TKO.

The list includes names like Jason Miller, Jorge Rivera, Denis Kang, and Eric Schafer. None of them are top fighters but they are all tough guys.

I'm not a fan of Bisping, I just think he gets criticized too much for this. Even if he isn't putting guys away with one shot, the fact is that he finishes fights. Again, he's 22-4 with only 4 wins coming by decision and only one loss coming by stoppage.

Say what you want but he gets the job done.

He does get the job done, against middle of the pack fighters. He has lost every time he fights above average comp imo

What a baby. And people wonder why he gets bashed. Im sure after he fights Stann, he will either call for a title shot (win or lose) or some how call out Benavidez in a Rocky 5 type street battle.

He had to hit all of them about 20,000,000,000 times and he cheated to beat Rivera. None of them were actual KOs.

Never been a fan of the guy orhis fighting style, but he's winning, and finishing, he must be doing something right.
As for the issue with Benavidez, I'm on Bisping's side. If someone insults you, you make it right. It's not like Benavidez is just another fan - he and Bisping rub shoulders with al the same people.Sure Benavidez might be strong or stronger - but when there is no way to ever back his words up it looks a little childish. Sure Bisping should have responded better- laughing it off,or making some "Joe B buys his clothing from the kid's section"jokes.

From Twitter-

Bisping @bisping
@ufc urijah favour,Joseph benavidez and the rest of the munchkin crew talk s— cos theyre stuck in the body’s of pre pubescent boys
and I’ll take the Pepsi challenge with smug faced little shit any time.

Faber then responded:

Urijah Faber @UrijahFaber
Thought we were buddies @bisping I know u can dish it out but can’t take it back @ufc ur like a spoiled 3rd grader. Grow up.

Faber is the one who needs to grow up. He's got the body of a prepubescent boy and the chin of an arse. What does he expect? Bisping to say "Oh yeh Joe B could smash me"

Team alfalfa fail

Bisping seemed to have good power at LHW. However, his only chance of ever being a contender is at MW.

Chris Weidman has 3 Decisions on his 9 fight record....he has soft hands too. People who ignore Bisping's finishing ability just don't like the guy. He's easy not to like sometimes, but I don't mind him. He obviously needs to learn to take a little ribbing better but I also imagine he's at one of the more intense parts of his weight cut, on a terrible diet, and in a pissed off mood already. Then as he gets ready to go into a fight in a few days he sees a guy who has been openly disappointed with not headlining the card anymore talking trash about him. I'd probably be upset too. Hell I get mad if I miss a meal in general....my most ornery posts on the playground have been inspired by something like running out of pizza or chips.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending his personality. Personally I dislike him most of the time (one of the few times I was rooting for Chael Sonnen was their fight.)

I just think it's silly to get hung up on a concept like "punching power." Like I said, it doesn't really matter how hard you hit as long as you finish the fight.

All of the back and forth trash talk between fighters as of late tells me they are all insecure and immature.

Some of them like Sonnen and Bisping have cottoned on to the fact that if they say things that people get talking about, negative or not, it garners interest. It's sad but true.
