Bisping: Win over Belcher 'in the bag'


Michael Bisping would like nothing more than to erase the memory of his last knockout loss to Vitor Belfot. And the best way to do that, to make short work of Alan Belcher at this weekend's UFC 159 in New Jersey. According to Bisping, the win over Belcher at this point is a foregone conclusion:

" gets me back in the mix for the title shot.  That’s what I want, and as long as there’s blood – sorry, life in my body – I will continue to try and get that title shot.  I’m a fighter.  I want to be the world champion, and I ain’t stopping until – as long as my body can do it, I’m going to keep trying,” said the 34-year-old Brit.

“A win over me for Alan Belcher will be by far the biggest win of his pathetic career,” he added, not believing in any way that it will happen.

Bisping’s confidence is high heading into the fight with Belcher.  On the call, he addressed Belcher directly, claiming the fight is all but over before it begins.

“Hey bro, I ain’t going to lose to you, man.  It’s in the bag.  All I got to do is – it’s a formality.  I just got to show up, slap your little face, take my check and go home.”

Bisping probably had Segal come in and teach him the almost-but-not-intentional-eye-poke

Just Bisping being Bisping. Belcher should get his respect after he beats him Saturday.

Bisping is more well rounded fighter and more consistent in his performances. Should be an exciting fight though. Hope Belcher can put a beating on Bisping though.

There is no way in hell Mr. Bisping wins this. He is a fun and enthusiastic mma player but way too slow for belcher The count couldnt even finish phael while he was cycling off and hasn't refined his ground-n-pound enough to keep from gettin subbed vs belcher on the ground. He will likely keep it standing and lose a decision.

Really hope Belcher wins this fight after hearing Bisping say this. Also, I like Belchers style more, hes more complete, imo.

Bisping's trolling Belcher and he's trolling his haters. He does it every time yet people still lap it up.Bisping knows Belcher's a dangerous opponent. He's not as skilled as The Count but the disparity isn't enough to say he couldn't pull out a win on the night.

Dude is obviously retarded, considering the Akiyama fight was the fotn. Which Belcher shoulda won. Mma judging is a joke and will always be a joke especially in Vegas.
