“I have to admit I was disappointed when I heard. You know, when all’s said and done, I like Chris Leben. He conducted himself well before and after the fight and, as I say, I like the guy. I’m a little disappointed that he’s done what he’s done, bringing the sport into disrepute, but it’s not really my place to have an opinion on it.

The UFC, as they always do, have set the example with the punishment — and they’re right to do that. Should he banned for life? I don’t think so, people make mistakes, people learn from mistakes. Plenty of fighters have recovered after testing positive, the standard is set at nine months and it would be unfair to go any harsher on Chris…

I don’t know if it makes my win any better, you can make a case for it because — without wanting to start slinging mud — he did cheat and I didn’t. I don’t know why he did it or if he knew he was doing it, but I know my performance was purely down to blood, sweat and tears — and that’s all the satisfaction I need.”

Very classy response on Bisping's part. I have to admit, the kid is growing on me...

bisping shouldnt care too much because I mean he won the fight, it would be a different story if he had lost to leben.

Bisping Rocks!!
Other guys wouldve gone in to that and said
"Well, it doesnt really matter, he had no chance aginst me anyways. I mean, Im the raddest baddest dude around, let him take drugs, still aint no match for me"

The only thing better than a guy who wins, is a guy who wins and stays classy.
Major props to Michael BIsping, Im glad to say hes my favorite fighter!

Who says 'disrepute' in an interview? Those Brits have quite a vocabulary. :)

I've always been a Bisping fan. I'm glad he showed us some of the England classiness for a change.
