This past June at UFC 199, Michael Bisping stepped in on two weeks’ notice to both fight and defeat Luke Rockhold to become the UFC Middleweight Champion, and he thinks he's changed Luke Rockho
Bipsing recently sat down with the folks at Champions.co to first discuss the actual fight with the former middleweight champion and how another former champion in Chris Weidman is embarrassed by the whole scenario.
”I think Chris is really embarrassed that I knocked out the guy that dominated him and beat the living crap out of him. He should be embarrassed that as a guy who calls himself a black belt in jiu-jitsu and some kind of crazy skilled wrestler, he was mounted by Rockhold, and had something like a hundred strikes landed on him. The referee should’ve called that fight after the third round. Where were his mount escapes? He should be embarrassed more for the fact that he got his ass absolutely kicked, but I went out there and knocked Luke out in the first round. “Why should he be embarrassed that I’m the champ? I mean, really, it’s about time that Chris Weidman just shuts the f**k up. He’s acting like a little bitch, and we all know it. Everybody is sick of him and all that whining. He’s always feeling sorry for himself and making excuses. Quit being a little bitch, Chris. Get back in the cage, win a fight and then maybe we can talk” said Bisping.
Bisping also went into great detail about how he exposed Rockhold and ultimately took home the middleweight gold.
“Seriously, though, I think Jacare beats him. I don’t think Rockhold will ever be the same again. I think I exposed him, to be honest. I think I exposed his chin, for sure. If Jacare stands in the pocket with him, he can definitely catch him. Vitor did it, I did it and Jacare can do it, too. Rockhold is good, don’t get me wrong. He’s got great kicks and very, very good jiu-jitsu, but he doesn’t have very good hands. If you get past the kicks and get him close, you can catch him. The good thing for me is that one of them gets beat. I couldn’t care less which one it is. I’ll fight the winner of that one or the winner of Yoel Romero vs. Chris Weidman. Makes no difference to me” said Bisping.
Bisping will take on Dan Henderson in the main event of UFC 204 on October 8.
