Bisping a 'little pissed off' at Lombard's potential title shot


In a recent interview with MMADieHards, Michael Bisping talked Chael Sonnen, Hector Lombard, Anderson Silva, and more.

"(Hector Lombard getting a title shot if he beats Brian Stann) does piss me off a little bit, you know? I’ve been slugging away in the UFC for six years now, fighting the best guys in the world, and just because Hector Lombard’s been knocking out part-time fighters who probably hold down jobs full-time and he’s been knocking out people that I haven’t got a clue who they are, I haven’t even heard of them, you know, while I’ve been knocking out the best fighters in the world and fighting the best consistently for six years and he’s going to come in from knocking out John the baker from around the corner and you know, he gets a title shot?"

“I’m never going to get a title shot. Every time I get on cusp of it, I put together a good win streak and then I lose by a decision that maybe I think I should have won, but that’s down to me. I can’t blame my opponents for that, I should try to take them out and beat them too it, that’s what I’m trying to do. Now I’m fighting Tim Boetsch.

"I think I’m still in the mix up there. I definitely haven’t gone down. I definitely think I’m one of the top few. I think I could give Anderson a good fight ... I definitely think I’ll get my shot soon.”

“I’ve watched the fight (vs. Chael Sonnen at UFC on FOX 2 on Jan. 28 in Chicago) several times and every time I watch it I think I’ve won ... But listen, I’m not gonna cry and complain about it. It was a close fight, I think I won rounds one and two, he definitely got round three. So judges, whatever, they maybe favor the takedowns a bit much, I think the general consensus is that I won."

Michael Bisping fights Tim Boetsch at UFC 149 on July 21 in Calgary.

 Reading above, I said "...the term roids as it was used..." referring to Idsmashit's post in which he accused Hendo of cheating because he was on roids, implying that Hendo's use of TRT was illegal.

That the term roids implies something illegal. Other than that I'm in complete agreement with you

The term steroid is not with reference to anything being illegal, doctors regularly use steroids to help patience with any number of ailments!I don't like or condone roids or trt in Mma, nor do i like false statements

 Yes, testosterone is a steroid, you get a gold star.  But the term "roids" as it was used implies something illegal, and we all know that's not the case, unless you choose to be obtuse.  EDIT: Grammar
