Bisping: 'No excuses' for loss to Belfort

source: mmamania.com
 

"I have no excuses," Bisping said in his UFC on FX 7 post-fight speech. "I had a fantastic training camp, and I felt very confident that I was going to win this fight. It was a beautiful kick. He caught me. Listen, he was a better man than me tonight."

Throughout his most recent rise to the top of the division, Bisping had gone from a reviled Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)-manufactured star to a likeable, funny and viable contender. Sure, the Bisping Hate Club will still have strong membership regardless of his exploits inside the Octagon, but it was safe to say he was beginning to finally turn the corner, warming up to fight fans who previously couldn't tolerate his shtick.

In the wake of his most recent loss, it would appear that Bisping's surging popularity is the silver lining in an otherwise devastating result. One from which the 33-year-old promises to rebound again and climb his way back to the top of the contender ladder.

"You win some, you lose some," he said. "I am not going away. Trust me, I'll be back at the top of this pile before you fucking know it."

My my Arsewipe we are defensive aren't we? just to clarify, every post I have seen from your fair hand has been negative, and if you are contributing 10x more than me, then well done, but you must get out more. Anyway as you must have guessed, I'm a Brit, you? Oh and there's no need to be rude, you know eat dick or whatever, or maybe you are just comfortable talking about those things?

Why don't you STFU? You are no one and when your opinion matters I'll let you know. I contribute 10x more discussion than you do. Brad Pickett, Hathaway, Sass, Etim, Pearson, and McGuire are fuckign AWESOME. I have a passionate viewpoint about SOME fighters and nationality has nothing to do with it. If you haven't seen my other posts, then you need to be a better stalker. You also need to stop being a forum cop. Now eat a dick and have a nice day!

No matter how you try and spin it, he is not a "average" fighter. A average fighter isnt in the UFC even if you use the word average. He may not be elite but he is a top MW no matter how you spin it. If he is average, are guys like Stann awful?

By finding a gullible fan base ignorant of how rankings work and think shit talking is how you climb the ranks? Arsegepicht why don't you STFU! Ok you don't like Bisping, or any Brits seemingly, every time your name crops up it's negativity, why don't you try and say something positive, about anything,and stop being a dick?

You’re getting yourself all worked up for no reason champ…It’s a forum. You think the man’s a good fighter and tough as nails etc… Others (like me) think he’s an average fighter that perpetually talks absolute shit. Just because he’s humble now, just as he was after being lamped by Hendo, doesn’t make a lot of us change our opinions of him.Simple..
