Michael Bisping likes Belfort over Jones, Team Alpha Male not so much

source: mmafighting
 

Ariel Helwani and Michael Bisping had a good natured back and forth on a variety of topics:
Chris Weidman - "I think you have an erection for Chris Weidman... I went there and I'm staying there."
The obnoxious fan: "I made him go sit outside with the naughty children."
His mental and physical state - "I know it's a cliche, but I'm in the best shape of my life... If I don't beat him Saturday night I have no one to blame but myself... three weeks ago my resting pulse rate was 35."
Belfort vs. Jones - "I've got a feeling Vitor Belfort is going to pull off an upset... he's got nothing to lose... if Vitor lands the left hand, it's good night for everyone."
Team Alpha Male: - "I shook Joseph Benavides hand and I ruffled his head like that, I thought he was a 12 year old kid."
Ariel Helwani - "Nothing but love."

Crap man, Bisping is making it harder to hate him! lol He really does have a pretty good sense of humor and if you LISTEN to the things he says rather than just reading the snippet, he normally comes off pretty respectful (at least lately). Don't get me wrong, I'm not pulling for him and hope he gets bingo'd but he's making me despise him less. lol

Like who?Rivera? Mayhem? Jason Day? Kang? Sinosic? Akiyama? Chainsaw Charles McCarthy?Bisping's best win was and still is, Chris Leben, who was not in the top 10 when they fought, and has gone 4-3 since the Bisping fight.Dan Miller is probably the next best opponent Bisping has beaten, and a very tough fighter, but again, wasn't ranked.Rankings arent based solely on the UFC, you know right? Other fights outside the UFC count towards rankings you know.Your lest sentence shows some complete ignorance of the rankings system.So I guess Fedor was never #1 in the world since he didnt fight in the UFC, huh?Want to re-think that statement?

Once again Ariel Helwani tries to make himself part of the story. He asks a question directly related to himself in pretty much half the interviews he does now. Ariel, you're a fucking journalist. Be professional. Go through the whole interview without asking the fighter about you and any possible/non existent "beef" you may have with the fighter. If it's not Bisping, it's Rampage. If it's not Rampage, it's Overeem. If it's not Overeem, it's Tito. If it's not Tito, it's Lombard. Get a fucking grip. We don't care about what the fighter you are questioning thinks about you.Easy way to settle this for both Bisping and Weidman. Have them fight, winner gets Anderson. If Bisping wins he will have finally beaten at least one top 10 guy. Because up until now, 26 fights into his career and over 6 years in the UFC, he hasn't. By the way Ariel, why didn't you ask Bisping about that when he was going on about your love for Weidman? (Instigated by you of course) Why didn't you man up, be a professional and state your opinion thus: Weidman beat a top 10 guy in a short notice fight then knocked the number 3 guy in the world out, whereas you Michael, have done neither. Or would that have been too "hard" a question Ariel? If Weidman wins, Bisping will shut the fuck up about the title shot he absolutely doesn't deserve and Weidman becomes a bigger name and cements his place as the number one contender. Or does that make too much fucking sense?
