Dana White: Bisping's illegal knee to Rivera was intentional

by Ariel Helwani | source: versus.com
 

In an interview with Versus' Ariel Helwani prior to last night's UFC on Versus 3 event, UFC President Dana White had this to say regarding the recent action's of Michael Bisping:

Michael Bisping’s in trouble right now. Michael Bisping’s a guy who I liked and have had a good relationship with since The Ultimate Fighter, but I’m very disappointed in the way he conducted himself during that fight. I think the knee was intentional. I think he did do it on purpose. He saw him in that position, looked at him, then threw the knee. Obviously I don’t like what he did after the fight either. Mike and I still need to talk then I’ll figure out what’s next for Michael Bisping.”

You don't need to explain to me I watched the fight that was just a typo error. Matt hamil was getting battered in that fight and I actually thought he cheated his way out of that fight by taking the DQ win he good enough admitted it later on saying it was his shoulder. Bottom line most fighters will try anything to get a advantage weather it is grabbing the fence, poking in the eye, hitting back of head to the worst of all taking drugs.

Well considering your earlier mistake, I'm guessing you don't understand the context of this fight. Jones had already been clearly winning the fight (and dislocating Hamill's shoulder in the process). After landing some significant strikes on the ground, Jones did throw some illegal elbows, giving him the DQ. Hamill later said that he could not continue due to his shoulder, which was already damaged before the illegal elbows.Now technically, he did still break a rule. But for some more context, the 12-6 elbow rule was implemented after a commissioner saw an MMA fight in which a 12-6 elbow cut a fighter, and lobbied until it was added in as a barred move - even though there is an essential consensus among experts that a 12-6 elbow is no more dangerous than any other elbow.
