Bisping: I don’t give a f@$% how big GSP is
Former UFC welterweight champion says he is the biggest he has ever been ahead of his title fight vs. middleweight champion Michael Bisping at UFC 217. And his Instagram appears to bear that out. Further, he has been refining his striking with Freddie Roach at Wild Card in LA.
On his latest Believe You Me podcast, The Count said he could care less about St-Pierre’s size, and hopes GSP stands with him.
“I think he looks exactly the same,” said Bisping, as transcribed by Jed Meshew for MMA Fighting. “He looks in great shape, he looks athletic, he looks like he probably just had a good pump and he’s probably stood next to a dwarf. Not a dwarf but he’s probably not the biggest guy.
“I’m not bothered by what he’s doing to be honest, I fight the way I fight. Go lift, go do backflips, do whatever the f*** you want. At the end of the day, I fight the way I fight and he’s gonna fight the way he fights and may the best man win.”
“I know he is a good wrestler, he’s a strong guy. He’s working with Freddie Roach which I couldn’t give a s*** about to be honest. . . I’m really not concerned about what he’s gonna do or what he is gonna improve him on and I hope that he improves his boxing to where Georges wants to stand and have a boxing fight with me. I hope he does that.
“The only way he wins this fight is by taking me down and holding me down or getting the submission because he ain’t winning on the feet and he knows that.”
“You’ve got to remember is that Georges is no idiot. He’s really not. He’s a very intelligent guy and his approach to the game has always been an intelligent approach. He knows what he’s doing. He’s been preparing for this for a long, long time. All this year he’s been preparing for it and probably the year before that. . . He’s gonna come with a game plan and be very well prepared and I actually think that the detrimental fact of being away for four years is also going to make him very hungry and we might see the best performance out of him ever.”
Michael Bisping fights Georges St-Pierre for the UFC middleweight championship at UFC 217 on November 4 in Madison Square Garden, New York, New York.
