Bisping inks 2-yr analyst deal with Fox (Fuel TV)

by Steph Daniels | source:

I just left my manager's office and I just signed the contract. I'll be a regularly featured analyst on Fuel TV. There's a lot of down time in between fights, so this allows me to be productive. I had a really great time last week and the producers liked me, so they offered me a contract. I think the next time I'm due back is in three or four weeks. I'm not sure how often I'll be on, but it should be pretty regularly, because I'm close to L.A.

When asked if this signified that his active fighting career might be winding down, he was adamant in rejecting that notion, stating,

Absolutely not. This does not mean any interference with my fighting career. I've still got a lot of time left in me. I just turned 34 last week, and I see myself going for another eight years, until I'm 42.

I've got a decent head on my shoulders and I'm comfortable in front of a camera, so this is a good fit for me, and I guess, in a sense, it will help set me up for my post fight career, but first and foremost, I'm a fighter, and that will always come first.

"When I first saw the video, a bunch of things went through my mind. First of all I thought, 'How stupid. This is just ridiculous.' Then I felt sorry for him. Then I wondered, after seeing the look on his face, if he had some kind of mental problem.

I prefer Chael and Dom. Both break fights down really well and are easy on the eyes.

Good stuff. I liked him and Chael together. They had pretty good chemistry.

Congrats to Mike and nice job by fuel of recognizing on-air talent with the crew of fighters they have assembled. Intelligent, well-spoken and enough arrogance/wit to entertain. Well done.

Dominick's fight analysis on the Fuel show is some of the best I've ever seen from a technical standpoint. The guy is an encyclopedia of technique, and I always really enjoy his segments. In fact, he's my favorite host out of any of the fighters.
