Mark Munoz: Michael Bisping has 'pillows for fists'

Mark Munoz didn't take long to respond to jabs from Michael Bisping, saying that his October opponent has "pillows for fists" among other things.

Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz are set to meet in the main event of a UFC Fight Night event in October in Manchester, and it hasn't taken long for the verbal warfare to kick off. Last week Bisping fired the first volley by saying that he'd put Munoz into an even deeper depression than he was during his year out of the sport due to injury. Over the weekend, Munoz fired back in an interview with Rick J Lee that you can watch above:

"Bisping has already been talking, I know. I was at my camp doing 10 days of an intensive wrestling camp with a bunch of wrestlers, over 300 of them. My phone was just blowing up. People were texting me and tweeting me all this stuff about Bisping talking a lot of smack about me. But that stuff doesn't bother me. I show my talk inside the Octagon.

He was saying he was going to beat me into depression and if I was depressed, I'd go into more depression. The fact of the matter is, he has pillows for fists. He hasn't knocked anybody out and he says he's gonna knock me out? He hasn't knocked anybody out. It's going to be like a pillow fight when I fight him. He's going to have pillows and I'm going to have hammers."

While it's true that the majority of Bisping's 24 wins have come by TKO, it's true that he doesn't have the power of the heavy hitters at middleweight. I honestly didn't expect Munoz to respond with trash talk, especially this soon, but I guess it does help to build the fight a bit.
