UFC: Bisping – “There’s only one person who’s going to be laughing on the night and that’s me”

73921939 300x200 UFC: Bisping   Theres only one person whos going to be laughing on the night and thats me


Michael Bisping has reacted furiously to a YouTube video posted by Jorge Rivera, the Manchester middleweight’s next opponent, branding the clip as “pathetic garbage”.

The footage in question has been racking up the views ever since it landed on the video-sharing site on Wednesday. Shot in the manner of a UFC ‘Countdown’ show, the video (that can be viewed below) doesn’t pull any punches in mocking everything from Bisping’s (pictured) accent to an apparent propensity to talk in the third person.

Maybe it was the video or otherwise, but there was no ‘Michael Bisping does this’ or ‘Michael Bisping does that’ when The Independent caught up with Britain’s leading mixed martial artist earlier today.

Failing to see the funny side of the video, Bisping reacted angrily, “Rivera’s a [expletive] dork and there’s only one person who’s going to be laughing on the night and that’s me.

“He can try and make himself relevant by talking [expletive] and doing stupid videos. I make myself relevant by constantly fighting the best in the world in main events and co-main events for the UFC.”

Bisping also doubted how much of the video – which he conceded was cleverly made – was really the work of his American foe, “Obviously Jorge hasn’t written any of that himself because the guy hasn’t got two brain cells to rub together. I doubt he can even read. Looking at him, I don’t imagine he spent too much time in school.”

Now drawn into talking some trash of his own, Bisping continued, “The guy’s 38 years old. You’d think he’d grow up and mature. He’s going on like a childish teenager. It’s all pathetic garbage. He should spend less time making videos and more time in the gym.”

Packed and ready to fly out to Sydney where this heated clash will take place in two weeks time, Bisping vows to remain focused ahead of the action inside the Octagon at UFC 127, “I’ll leave him to his stupid games but believe me, I’m training to kick his [expletive] ass.”

    I loved this video. I hate Bisping.. he is too cocky and errogant. and for what he’s not even that good. Jorge’s got it right, Bisping is nothing but a f***ing JOKE. I would make a video mocking him too. why train if ur opponent is Bisping?

    that’s because the guy barely wins fights. sorry but it might have bean funny if the English accent resembled a northern one of any kind, rather than an attempt to emulate a guy ritchie film. Bisping has a MANC accent and seeing as he is announced as a fighter from Manchester (which is in Lancashire), I don’t see why trying to prove you know something and mistaking Manchester for being part of Yorkshire helps his cause to make Bisping look like a stupid man. Bisping’s victory over Leben was legitimate, the Hamil fight can be disputed, but Bisping is far from a decision guy, he fight’s hard and he fights good, and that is regardless of what you think of his personality. If anything really was out of line and should not be said under any circumstance, it’s comparing a man to the likes of Hitler and Stalin, plus it hurts feelings of those who were affected by these “men”, and none of what Bisping has done has made him a deserving subject of comparison to the two. That makes Jorge, a guy I used to enjoy watching, in my eyes exactly like Chael, an ignorant idiot with no respect and a big mouth, that will say anything to promote a fight and get under an opponents skin, without any regard to the face it might hurt the feelings of those who aren’t even involved. I would love to see Rivera pay for that and that alone, the other things he said have barely been funny and made him look stupid, but the Hitler comparison, well that made him look like a complete idiot!
