Yeah, Ecky has it right. Although the sky guide still doesn't have it up yet. Bloody stupid scheduling if you ask me. You might want to give Ken Lee a pm if like me you can't wait half a week to watch it after the US.
Macman, thats interesting about Palhares/Hendo. Very interesting. Not that we should automatically assume Hendo greased just from that but these things always raise questions and I just hope all the relevent commission people and others perform a rigourous check on him before the fight just to be sure. A fight like this is way too big to have its legitamacy questioned. Kind of weird timing for this to come out, which makes you wonder if there is something to it.
Anyway, new Bisping interview here:
Forward it to 15.00 mins. A few interesting things, including Bisping would like another fight with Hamill and believes he could beat him pretty easily. Says he over-trained for the first fight but still did enough to win. Said he acted badly after the fight which is why he got booed at the Rashad fight. Would also love to fight Rashad again, and will one day look to return to the LHW division.
macman1000 - Thanx EB and that's a GREAT post above because i have been seeing a lot of that lately. I think Bisping could go on to beat Hendo and Anderson and people still won't give him his credit so i don't think it will change anytime soon, but what will change is the new claim by Palhares that Hendo GREASED. How about that one?
Good posts oliverfig, apart from the 'weasley limeys' bit. No need for that.
Tonight is the night it all kicks off. (At least in the US).
Exciting stuff. All you US nay-sayers had better start paying attention because you're in for a rude awakening...
explodingboy - By the way, the biggest April Fools joke is that there are still people who think Henderson will beat Bisping!
A little glimpse into the fight for you ^^
explodingboy - There will be no excuses teamquestfan, have no fear.
The Bisping/Hamill result has been done to death, but basically if you look at what Ken Lee had to say about it in the other thread, I would have to agree with him. The subjective aspect of the sport is in the scoring, and while it can't ever be 100% guaranteed, in order to keep the credibility of judging as it should be, we have to accept the result. You don't hear Bisping fans going on and on about the Evans fight, when that too has been questioned by many. Its just time to move foward.
It seems Bisping himself regrets the gloating after the fight, so we can accept that as a moment of triumph gone a bit far. And anyway, a little bit of controversy is what keeps people talking and builds interest, I don't have a massive problem with it.
And Maia would have to get Bisping down to sub him. Can't really see that happening. He isn't likely gonna do a Sonnen.
Anyway, I can't stay up for UFN tonight, been concreting today, exhausted. So I'll watch the replay tomorrow night on Setanta and be back on here after.
Keep it up, signing off.
