"I do like the UFC," Hatton said. "I like it when both fighters are standing up -- the clinching kind of gets a little boring at times although I do admire the technique that the fighters use. Holding and holding and ending up on the mat can become a little bit boring but I am a UFC fan and I do like the UFC."
"I think boxing will be boxing and UFC will be UFC but I'm a fan of both and boxing could learn a lot from UFC and the way they advertise and promote the show," Hatton said. "In boxing a lot of the time the audience seems bored."
"I've never met Michael Bisping," Hatton said. "But I know people who know him and I think he's doing Liverpool and the Northwest of England very proud."
