After Michael Bisping beat Jorge Rivera, he demanded an apology from Rivera, called him a loser and spat at his coaches. Bisping apologized only seconds later when talking to Joe Rogan. Luke Thomas of SBNation contacted Alchemy MMA, the management team behind Jorge Rivera and they gave this statement in response:

"For the Jorge Rivera - Michael Bisping fight - the knee was illegal and flush on the face. But instead of taking a dive and possibly the win, Jorge fought on. Bisping tagged Jorge while BOTH of his knees were on the canvas. He wasn't the same afterward but fought on anyway. How many fighters would be able to fight on after that?

The stoppage was quick, but we won't fight it. He won. That's all there is to it. But for all his talk of being a professional, Bisping spit on Rivera's coaches when the fight was over. How can you claim to be a professional after that?"
