Michael Bisping is not prepared to go through another "boring" fight anytime soon.
"The Count" recently accepted an invitation train at fellow middleweight Mark Munoz's gym Reign Training Center, where he intends to work on his wrestling to ensure he does not take part in another "disappointing" fight.
Bisping lost a unanimous decision to former Strikeforce fighter Tim Kennedy in the main event of the TUF:Nations Finale in Quebec City last month. Kennedy controlled the Briton with his wrestling for the majority of fight.
"It was a disappointing fight. Obviously I didn't walk away with the victory, but it was more disappointing to me because it was a boring fight. I'm not used to hearing the crowd boo throughout my fights. I don't like that. People part with their hard-earned money to be entertained and it wasn't an entertaining fights. I get it - it is Mixed Martial Arts. Tim [Kennedy] had a gameplan and he is obviously allowed to go for takedowns, and allowed to control me on the floor, but it was a little extreme if I am honest."
While Bisping had purposely avoided training with Munoz in the past, he decided to "bite the bullet" and accept the invitation, knowing the benefits it entails.
"You have to make it right. That is what brings me down to Reigns Training Center. Mark Munoz runs a great facility here and there are a lot of guys to train with. Obviously in the past I have stayed away from him because me and Mark were scheduled to fight one time in the past. We are the same division. You have to bite the bullet sometimes and swallow your pride and say ‘listen, the fight didn't go as planned. I need some training partners.' Mark was very kind and extended an invitation, and why wouldn't I accept?"
