Michael Bisping was a guest on HDNet's Inside MMA last night, and upped the ante on the pre-fight rhetoric being exchanged between himself and UFC on Fox 2 opponent Chael Sonnen. Sonnen has been fairly low-key so far in terms of trashing Bisping, only offering up a few quips here and there. Bisping though? That's a whole other story: (transcribed by MMA Mania):
"Okay. One. Let's start with the obvious. He's not the middleweight champion. He's been beaten many, many times. He's been submitted more times than I care to mention. Not to mention, the last time he lost a fight by submission, there were some issues involving performance enhancing drugs. I don't know what the deal is. Apparently, he has one testicle. One testicle! This is why he uses performance enhancing drugs. He's gonna need more than one little ball to fight me next weekend!"
Not bad. He continued on with his assessment of the fight, which is a little more realistic:
"He's gonna try and take me down, lay on top of me and smother me to death. Me, on the other hand, I will be arriving to fight this guy. I'm gonna look to knock him out. Of course, like all my fights, it's not gonna be easy. He's a tough opponent. I'm sure it's gonna be an amazing fight. All joking aside, it's gonna be a tough fight."
Bisping can't seem to make up his mind though. He said a few days ago that he was going to submit him from the bottom, but now he's going to knock him out. Either way, expect more amusing back-and-forth between the two in the next few days.
