Please feed Bisping to Sonnen. Sonnen will own him in and out of the cage.
I am not really reading too much into it. I actually buy Bispings explanation.
Having said that, I thought this was a overall poor showing by Bisping.
This was the slowest I've seen him, and I think he forgot that he has one of the better jabs in the UFC.
The knee, acting like he did after the fight... It was all kind of disappointing to me.
Bisping showed his true colors last night. What a piece of ****. The intentional illegal knee, then the classless actions after the fight.
And if anyone says that illegal knee wasn't intentional, you're lying to yourself. He grabbed him in a Muay Thai style behind-the-head clinch and hit him with the knee. That was 100% intentional.
Bisping needs to be put in his place. I agree with the poster who said 'Feed him to Sonnen.' Sonnen would murder him. Or, hell, since they'll apparently give anyone a title shot at 185( see Vitor Belfort) give him to Anderson Silva.
I'm not lying to myself, I just tend to give fighters the benefit of the doubt in situations like that.
The sport is so fast, if you have seen it live, you really understand that, and some guys that mean well, sometimes do really stupid things in the heat and speed of the moment.
I'm not saying that he accidentally hit him or anything, I'm saying that he just made a mistake.
I highly doubt that Bispings plan was to knee him illegally.
As for the other stuff, what specifically are you referencing?
Also, can we talk about how stupid it is to have the ref ask a fighter if he can continue after something like that? What fighter worth anything is going to say no even if he was capable of appropriately addressing the damage he had absorbed within seconds of it happening? This guy's been training for months and talking ****, etc and he's going to say no? Of course not.
I realize I'm putting this here for you to read... but please, don't talk about it.
If so, I tend to agree, I don't like that either.
Bisping did apologize at his news conference, and that Rivera's comments on his family, made him get a little out of control.
With that being said, for the most part, I don't pick and choose fighters based on what they are like outside of the cage, so I'm not super pissed about what he did.
