Eleven-year veteran Denis Kang (32-11-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) knows that, and he displayed his grit with an April win over Xavier Foupa-Pokam after suffering a frustrating loss to Alan Belcher in January.

Now Kang travels to England to see how Michael Bisping (17-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) will rebound from a devastating July defeat to Dan Henderson, and the middleweight believes the Brit's mindset may very well be a key factor in the fight.

The two meet on the main card of the Spike TV-broadcast "UFC 105: Couture vs. Vera" event.

Its not a free fight for either guy. But especially Kang.

The quote is taken completely out-of-context in the headline

Just to clarify for everyone else, Kang is not saying that bisping will be an easy opponent. he is stating that all the pressure is on bisping (coming off a huge loss, fighting in front of home crowd), whereas Kang feels like it is a free fight for him in the sense that there is no pressure on himself since he is relatively unknown to ufc fans.

I bet now it seems more to him like a... Utter pounding in front of the crowd that supports your enemy to the point where you crawl up into a ball and beg for it to stop.
Lol thats just my take on the fight
