"I was listening to Wanderlei talk about how he’ll use the Henderson blueprint to beat me and knock me out... well I am going to use the Henderson blueprint to knock him out. Henderson knocked him out just as badly as he did me."-- Michael Bisping talks about the "perfect preparation" for facing Wanderlei Silva in Sydney.
"I was embarrassed, I was humbled by Henderson – knocked out in front of millions of people - and I took a good hard look at myself and realised I needed to change a few things in my defence."
"I’m extremely grateful to Rampage [Jackson] for coming over to Widnes for the last week of my camp in the UK, and for coming to Australia for two weeks and agreeing to work my corner on the night."
"We have a clear game plan but discussions and tips from Rampage, about Wanderlei’s movement and shots, have inspired me and kept confidence high. I’ve also sparred with Rampage, who is a heavy puncher, and that has given me confidence. Rampage thinks I will beat Wanderlei easily."
