"I have read a couple of interviews from my upcoming opponent and I have to say I'm not impressed. He has said that I'm basically not a very good fighter. That I have no striking, no wrestling and no Jujitsu. He says that I don't really offer any sort of threat He then goes on to say how he has the bestJujitsu in the middleweight division and no one can hang with him on the floor. lol.-- Michael Bisping responds to Charles McCarthy's recent media slamming.
I have had many opportunity's to bad mouth Charles but have chosen not to and show some respect to my fellow competitor. After-all we have no history and it would be a classless move. I did not mention how he had in my opinion one of the worst fights Ive ever seen on the Ultimate Fighter, or how his striking is beyond poor and please don't get me started on general athleticism.
When preparing for a fight you should watch footage of your opponents fights, to figure out there style and perhaps find holes in there game etc, but watching his fights was so painful I nearly fell asleep and have given up on that idea.
I suppose he is trying to convince himself that he does belong in there, and I imagine he thinks he is being clever, trying to play mind games and "get into my head". Some people think if you get someone mad then they won't perform as well.
Congratulations Charles. You succeeded in pissing me off by not only disrespecting me, but all of my previous opponents. If you think that this is a good thing, wrong. You have made a big mistake by making this personal. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm not someone to be messed around when I'm pissed.
So I will see you on the 19th when I will bring all of my " averageness". Just hope your ready for this mediocre fighter, because make no mistake my fat little friend, I'm ready for you!"
