Bisping Responds To Benavidez: 'My 11-Year-Old Boy Will Take Care Of Him'

Remember earlier today when we brought you a post about Michael Bisping apparently getting mad at Joseph Benavidez, but no one was sure what Bisping had said? Well, it has come out now. For those of you just joining us, the flyweight tournament finalist made an offhand comment about hitting harder than the middleweight in a UFC 152 fighter diary. Bisping's response came on MMA Junkie Radio, and it was typically venomous:

"That smug-faced little t--- in a prepubescent boy's body needs to shut the f--- up because I'll take the Pepsi Challenge with that short-ass any day of the week."

...

"People are going to say that I'm talking crap, but he's the one trying to start in with me. [Benavidez] needs to recognize his weight class because my 11-year-old boy will take care of him."

That is what originally prompted Joe B's tweet about Bisping being "butt hurt". As usual, Bisping never fails to entertain. Both men will step into the octagon at UFC 152 this Saturday, when Benavidez meets Demetrious Johnson for the flyweight title and Bisping faces off with Brian Stann.
