As some of you may know, I’ve just got back to Orange County from filming a movie in England.   There have been dozens and dozens of interview requests and tweets about the recent news.

I’m back in England next week for the UFC on FUEL show, and right now all I really want to do is see my family, especially my daughter, who turned just turned 10 (happy birthday, Elle!). So, I wanted to do a short statement here and then move on to my fight with Alan Belcher, April 27th at UFC 159.

Here’s what I’ve got to say:

As I said right after the fight, I lost because I made a mistake and Vitor took advantage of it. It sucks. I don't like it, but that was the result. I lost. Bottom line.

Over the past couple years, and even right before the fight, I have made my views on TRT very, very clear.  I don’t feel that I need to go into depth about it again right now.  All I have to add, about this specific instance, is that it is very disappointing that someone who was caught cheating with testosterone in the past, now gets to use testosterone legally.  A well known side effect of steroids is that it reduces testosterone, so I don't understand how it would make sense to then grant someone an exemption to then increase testosterone.

All that being said, I am not here to make excuses or cry over spilled milk.  I fight in the best organization in the world, The UFC, and am very excited to work and earn a title fight, the right way.  That process starts by whooping Alan Belcher's ass at UFC 159 on Saturday, April 27th, live on PPV.

Thanks everyone for their support – can’t wait to spend some time with British UFC fans in London next week and I will be back, better than ever.

Belcher wins this fight, he needs to kick early & often to slow Bisping down & go for the ground & pound tko at some point. If he stands in front of Bisping all night he's gonna get beat up though. Phone Post

I don`t think that Vitor will be able to get a TUE in Nevada.

Classy. Truth is Belfort is a fucking cheater and natural Bisping shouldn't fall down the ladder for the loss, and everyone knows it. Phone Post

I love Bisping...but Trt didn't make Mike fight conservative or walk into a telegraphed head kick...On that night Vitor would have beat him clean...Glad Mike didn't bitch too much in his statement...he needs the Belcher win big time Phone Post

While I disagree with Bisping on the issue of TRT, that was very well spoken, classy and standup.

I'm finding MB harder and harder to dislike. Ever since the Sonnen fight.

Damn him for earning my respect!
