You can say what you want about Michael Bisping, but the guy sure knows how to sell a fight.

With two months remaining until Bisping returns to action at UFC 152 to face decorated Marine turned middleweight contender Brian Stann, the brash Brit is already doing his part to make their co-main event fight the biggest thing on the upcoming card in Toronto.

So big in fact that Bisping believes their bout is the real headliner and not the 125lb title fight between Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson.

“In my opinion, and I think in most people’s, this is the main event. This is the real main event. Two big hard hitting guys. No one cares about little flyweights, this is the real main event, this is the real big fight, tune in cause someone’s getting knocked out, ain’t going to be me though,” said Bisping when speaking to Fuel TV on Saturday.

“This is the real main event of UFC 152.”

Yes, a main event that is only 3 rounds and not for a title.

Jesus. . . This guy makes small steps forward and gets a few fans an then open his mouth again and people remember why they hated him to begin with! I'd say if it wasn't tat then BJ vs MacDonald would be the headliner!

Never heard of self-promotion before? Apparently not......you guys really need to read The Voice of Reason to get educated!

The fact that he (and most likely Chael) get soooo under your skin is only a win-win for them

If Ronda said that you guys would be making a mess all over your keyboard right now listening to some death metal in the background

I'm going to buy my second copy. Obviously I haven't paid enough attention.
Ronda can take her smoking hot body and fu*k right off though!

100% agree. I was actually starting to get behind him, until the past few months of him opening his mouth.

A part of me wants him to win, so Andee can beat the brakes off him, another part wants Stann to knock his block off, so he yet again fails to get a title shot. So either way it's a win-win situation, only downfall would be, he actually received a title shot.

Bisping is a different story. He's rubbed me the wrong way since his TUF days.

Plus, when the hype dies down and the fight is over, Bisping is still the same person as he was prior to the fight. So, how much is promotion and how much is just being himself? He has his moments of humility, but not often enough.
