"GSP, he's a B-level fighter" - Frank Trigg...GSP went on to destroy him and make him look like an amateur.

"He'll outwrestle me?? lol Georges St-Pierre will outwrestle me? I've been wrestling since I've been five years old. That's my world. He's not going to beat me on the ground." - Josh Koscheck...GSP went on to outwrestle him, en route to a one sided decision.

Leben also asked what Silva intended to do when Silva hit Leben in the face with his best punches and Leben kept on coming. Turns out, wasn't really an issue hahaha.


Best pre fight trash talk has to go to either Tony Bonello against Ninja Rua when Bonello came out and kept yelling "FUCK YOU" to Ninja...before getting worked over badly.


Or maybe to that roided out guy Thompson? The guy who went nuts and came flying across the ring to try and take on Aleks Emilienko...only to get absolutely destroyed.


Honorable mention to all those guys out there who say "I have never been knocked out/submitted in my life". That's a long list.

1 for Bonello. What made it better was how ninja pretty much laughed at him the whole time he was doing it. Phone Post

Bisping before the Hendo fight:

“I think I’m going to be too quick for him and I don’t think he is going to land that big shot. I don’t see Dan Henderson, no disrespect to 38 years of age, but he’s gotta be slowing down and I don’t think he is going to catch me with it.”

Classic. You can add more Bisping/Hendo trash talk:

"I'm gonna be the first person to KO Dan Henderson."

"I’ve been playing the ‘UFC 2009 Undisputed’ game as myself against Dan Henderson as part of my mental preparation"

- Michael Bisping

The most rewarding I think was Hendo versus Bisping.

But GSP really owns this category. First Koscheck fight, he outwrestles him. Second Kos fight, he clearly hates him and he systematically and mercilessly breaks his face. Much more, though, BJ accuses him of not being a real fighter, of being a coward, and of being a quitter.

GSP makes him quit.

Doesn't get worse than that.

In hindsight, I thought it was really funny that Tito said Randy was too old to beat him... in 2003 lol. Just because Randy dominated him and then still fought at a high level for several more years Phone Post

He's talked about that fight as being the biggest mistake of his career. Not because he lost his title, but because he just can't believe how dumb he was with gameplans and opinion of Silva going into it. He thought the clinch was where he would dominate that fight Phone Post
