Bisping: Cung Le is a phony


Michael Bisping fights Cung Le in the main event of Saturday's UFC Fight Night in Macao. Bisping has more relatively quiet in social media on the trash talk, a bit unusual for him, but today lashed out his opponent, who he believes is fighting for the wrong reason:

Cung Le is a bit of a phony. I went to Macao for the launch press conference with Cung Le in June, and I was very polite, very professional. I exchanged all the pleasantries, gave him all the small talk as you are supposed to in these situations and I even went as far as pretending to be absolutely blown away that he’s apparently friends with Channing Tatum," Bisping said. "Basically, I went out of my way to be nice to him and everything was very civil. We promoted the fight, shook hands, and went back home to train for the fight.  
“Then I see him on doing a Fight Club Q and A and he’s talking a load of bollocks about me. Basically, he’s jumped on the same old, boring bandwagon everyone else who fights me does with is to say what a smack-talker I am while, as always, they are the ones who talk crap first. What a phony. ... One fan at the Q and A asked him what his game plan was and he said “Flying tornado kicks and thunder and lightning!” What does he think we are going to be doing in the Venetian Macao? Playing Tekken 4? It was another cheesy, embarrassing line from a cheesy, embarrassing actor.”

Cung Le has a bit of an awkward, forced personality.   Bisping is one of the few legit funny people in MMA, would probably give Joe Rogan a run for his money.   Chael is so painfully rehearsed; the people who like his schtick are self admitted pro wrestling fanboys.
