In his last blog before fighting Vitor Belfort Saturday night at UFC on FX 7 in Brazil, Michael Bisping keeps up the verbal pressure.

This is the final installment of my epic trolling of Vitor Belfort, ahead of Saturday's UFC on FX main event. I’ve made weight, I’m happy to be eating and drinking after cutting weight. I did the weight fine. I went to bed six pounds over the 185-pound middleweight limit. I hit the scales exactly as I wanted to – using the one-pound allowance and coming in at 186 pounds. Perfect.

Vitor Belfort, my opponent, kept screaming yesterday and today at the weigh-in that he’s “ready”. “I’m READY! I’M READY!” Sounds like he’s trying to convince himself, to be honest. He’s been saying he can do the full 25 minutes and then do a training session right after.

Really? I can do 25 minutes standing on my head but, afterwards, win, lose or draw, I’m not interested in doing a training session. I’m interested in eating, hanging out with my mates and a couple of cold beers.

He’s never had much in the way of stamina and lying to himself won’t make it any better. You don’t hear me predicting first-round one-punch KOs, because that’s not what I am known for in my career. I’d like to end this early – and I think I will stop Belfort in three rounds – but I see weakness in Vitor’s words.

He showed weakness yesterday at the press conference, too. I showed up wearing a suit, like a professional athlete attending a major sporting press conference. And UFC MD Marshall Zelaznik showed up looking dapper in a sports jacket. But of course, we were all let down as Vitor bowled up dressed like a NASCAR gift shop had exploded in his face. What was he dressed like, seriously? He looked like something out of Toy Story 2.

Then we had a bit of an incident at the head to head. Vitor put his fist in my face. He’s not allowed to touch me and he was trying to bitch me out to see if he could get away with it. He couldn’t. I swatted his arm away, twice.

Like I said before, he’s a bully and for all his skills and punching power – and I do not discount his ability to end this fight in his favor for one second. I don’t really go for psychological warfare, and even though I told Vitor I was in his head, really, the build-up is the build-up and tomorrow night all of that counts for nothing. I’ve had a little fun, spoken my mind on some things like him dancing around TRT questions, and I’ve used his little slights to motivate myself to perform to the best of my own ability.

I’ve got a chance to become the undisputed, no questions asked, No. 1 contender tomorrow night. I’ve had two of these before and, bottom line, didn’t get it done. I have worked so hard to get back here, and I’m very grateful my hard work has been rewarded by the UFC.

Love me or love hating me, tune in tomorrow. I always show up to fight and I’m putting a beating on Belfort on FX.

Hit me up on Twitter @bisping, trolls eat free.

DanGold - Hope Bisping wins. If you like him, it's gonna be great for him to finally prove himself. If you don't, he's going to get slain in a beautiful fashion by Anderson. Win/win for all.

I love both these guys but have to root for bisping. I believe he will get rocked at some point but hopefully he gets through it. If busing makes it through 2 rounds I expect him to punish Belfort in the remaining rounds. Phone Post

First, Vitor put his hand up first, Bisping walked into the fist. Not Vitor's fault.

Second the gift shop line was taken from Dan Hardy ragging on Marcus Davis. He was making fun of Davis's website and said it "looks like a St. Patrick's Day gift shop blew up"

Didn't he have a fairly decent reason/excuse for that though?

If you're pointing out your own trolling the only person being trolled is yourself.

For all his talk, Bisping has no intention of engaging with Vitor, at least not until he's absolutely sure that Vitor's gassed and no longer a threat to knock him out (if and when that happens). It's hard to be a fan of a guy that fights like that, but at the same time I can respect how much he's improved inside the cage since the loss to Hendo.

I dunno what happened, I used to despise Bisping. Somehow, over the last two or three fights, he's turned me around completely. That NASCAR line was both funny and true.

I like Bisping he has obviously matured since his tuf season with Dan, plus I bet on his fight with Stann and made a cool 50 bucks. Phone Post

So is Bisping saying that Vitor is too old to compete with the new age fighters and that he is bringing a knife to a gun fight? Phone Post

Bisping gets way more hate than he deserves. He is candid and self-effacing in this interview and being real about his skills and career. 

 

I always love fighters that can turn the shit talk on and off and level with people and himself

Sounds like Mike has his head on straight despite all the hijinks. Win or lose tomorrow I expect a great performance out of him as always!

And I'm super excited to finally see, once and for all, whether there really is a Jesus or not. This fight will decide it!
