Michael Bisping may never win a UFC title, but he will undoubtedly retire as the call-out champion of the world (and he says 'thank you').

I'm not sick of it Bisping runs his mouth more than anyone and now people see him as the golden ticket to getting their name recognised.

I think people are thinking that he will be an easy win with the ring rust and all...I think they are sadly mistaken and that Bisping would likely defeat both of them. Machida and Vitor though, that's a different story.

I used to hate Bisping with a passion but now I think hes a great fighter and a very funny guy. I honestly think he beats Munoz and Kennedy 9 times out of 10.

Yeah it's pretty much a bad joke at this point

I know that he's strongly disliked by most of the community, but do you honestly think he really runs his mouth THAT much? He definitely talks some shit, but he's honestly probably in the bottom 50% of shit-talkers. Seriously, you would struggle to name the last time he ran his mouth off; saying that he does so more than anyone else is ludicrous, you're just letting personal opinion turn into fact. Not only that, but he's generally very respectful in defeat, which is a quality I admire in any competitor in any sport (Vitor loss being the only exception).

I don't mind Bisping's attitude and he is a solid fighter. I think his whole 'shit talker' label is mostly exaggerated by a few isolated instances that got more press than they really should've. I don't think Munoz brings much to the table against Bisping or any of the other top contenders.

Granted I probably shouldn't have said more than anyone else but I'd definitely say he's in the top 50% not the bottom. I stand by the point that people probably see him as the easiest route to the title. I don't mean fight wise but if they get the win against him it's almost instant recognition with the average fan and a win against a legit MW.
