Bisping On Fellow Brit Paul Daley’s Sucker Punch: ‘It Was One of the Stupidest Things That I Have Ever Seen’

("God, I hope he didn’t drink out of my water bottle before I sat down.")

Michael Bisping was asked today by MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani to give his thoughts  on fellow UK fighter Paul Daley‘s post-UFC 113 attack of opponent Josh Koscheck and let’s just say that "The Count" was much less supportive of his countryman than expected.

"What can I say? It was one of the stupidest things that I have ever seen. Paul’s a very talented young man, he’s got a bright future ahead of him and he was getting his UFC career off to a fantastic start and it’s a shame to see a few seconds of madness ruin such a great potential career," Bisping told Helwani. "But this is a professional sport and we’re professional sportsman, you can’t act like that. I, myself, have done years and years of interviews and things like that, talking about how we’re not thugs, we’re professional athletes, we’re martial artists. Behavior like that just plays into stereotypes. It’s just a bit of a shame, really."

Bisping admitted that the news that Daley had been let go by the promotion caught him  off guard, but says he wouldn’t be surprised if UFC president Dana White reconsiders the decision somewhere down the road and brings "Semtex" back to the Octagon.

"I’m not saying I agree with letting him go, no. To be honest, I was a little shocked when I heard that the UFC were cutting him completely. I thought, maybe, he might be relegated to the undercard, but I’m sure they have their reasons," said Bisping. "You know, I try to stay out of it and I just focus on my fight and my career, you know? Who knows? Maybe we’ll see him back one day. I hope so. I’ve known Paul for a while. He’s a nice guy. He just made a silly mistake."

Somehow I doubt it, but what do I know? I figured Gilbert Yvel would never fight for the UFC and that Tito Ortiz‘s days in the Octagon were behind him, too.

@ ytrebil
I feel u. Victoria Bechham is nothin but skin and bones anyway (not that I wouldn't eat a bowl of her shit or anything), but yeah ytrebil, there are a lot hotter hos.

FWIW Victoria Beckham is average (David Beckham could have any bird in the world, let's be honest here) and Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) is also average.

If you guys want hot British girls, go Google Kelly Brook or Keeley Hazel.

where is the line for finger banging baby spice? i want in.

I always thought Bisping came across okay. Alright I’m English, so people may think I’m biased, but I just don’t think you guys get his humour perhaps. Very rarely have I found him to be insulting. I quite liked watching him on TUF. I thought he was a good coach and seems like quite a character. As a fighter, I think he’s average in the UFC. But I think you only had to see a couple of his earlier fights to realise this.

^ Correct.

who gives a fuck what this ass hat has to say anyways?

Funny thing about all this is, DW is a bigger douchebag than Semtex, fraggle fuckstick n shitferbrains all put together.

Yeah, titos never coming back

Chuch will never fight again

Kimbo will never be in the UFC


If it increases his bottom line, DW will do it

Old Bald Irish i am glad to see your smart assery back on the intronet.

^^^How about "Pissed"... has a nice ring to it. Maybe a slogan like "Get Pissed" or "You're Pissed"... it could work.

Bisping and Machida marketing their new line of sports beverages..Concussed.
Mr_Misanthropy- May 10, 2010 at 5:59 pm
Michael Bisping is the Jedi-master of douchebaggery. I remember at the 110 post fight presser, after he got soundly handled by Wanderlei, that he was still talking shit. He cracked some remark right there about how the club Wanderlei was throwing his after-party at was having gay night or some bullshit. I don't like poor sportsmanship, but I hate sore losers. It's called humble pie, slice a chunk off and jam it in your fucking cake-hole, it keeps the diarrhea of the mouth from spraying out on innocent by-standers.
Smitty- May 10, 2010 at 5:38 pm
OBI, where the fuck you been??? I been lookin for yo old ass. Good to see you're still alive and well. Don't tell me you been over at Ben F's new spot hittin that.

BISPING: "It's just a bit of a shame, really."

Oh. My. Gawd.

....shut yer hole RIGHT NOW!

Look, I like you guys on the other side of the pond. You brought us The Goodies, Kenny Everet, Monty Pyton, Posh Spice (admit it; she's hot), Baby Spice (admit it; she's retarded...but you'd still finger-bang her), Strongbow Cider, Dr. Who and some guy named "Shake-a-spear".

Sure....I'm still a little pissed about that whole "potato famine" thing, but that's in the past.

Can you do a solid and just like...I dunno....cripple...or maybe shiv Bisping?

I'm not condoning killing the guy! way....just...hurt him.....please?

You know....something like:

"It's just a bit of a shame, really. Ya'know...with his colon hangin' out like that."


"It's just a bit of a shame, really. Nobody's seen a bloke get his femur rammed up his own arse like that before."

....or maybe

"It's just a bit of a shame, really. Ya' know....having to fight Kimbo Slice and all...."

It sucks we won't get to see Paul Daley fight Thiago Alves. Oh well though.
Snitches_get_stitches- May 10, 2010 at 4:31 pm
if he can speak french lol
Snitches_get_stitches- May 10, 2010 at 4:30 pm

How do you take anything DW says seriously now? Dana has no integrety already.

Paul Daley is a young, talented fighter, and yes has Strikeforce written all over him, but he is promising, and people do change over time (al la Tito Ortiz went from being a loser to a bigger loser)

Paul Daley will be back, need to take a chapter outta GSP classiness book and learn a thing or two about being a "good sport" lol
Mr_Misanthropy- May 10, 2010 at 3:45 pm
I just tried to stomach Sherdog for minute (I know, its a bad habit) and I vomited all over my new keyboard. I'm sure this is going to be a bitch to clean up. They had an article with Coker where he is weighing the pros and cons of hiring Daley and Slice and matching Slice up with Herschel Walker, and they have some garbage UFC 113 review where they say Shogun is the most dangerous kickboxer at 205 (isn't he a bit partial to the Muy Thai? guess I don't know shit) and that Machida's refined style made him a "traditionalist in a sea of biker-gang tough guys"... I don't even have to write any jokes after this.

Lyoto smirks uncomfortably as the echo of bisping's unexpectedly loud fart sounds like it may have chunks in it.
CZ- May 10, 2010 at 3:35 pm
The sheer admiration in Bisping has that Lyoto drinks his OWN piss is on full display. Guess Im in the minority here but I think Dana White is just shooting his mouth off as usual. He has the depth in his roster to stick by his word, but it was a rash decision to fire daley and IMO a bad one. Dana has been known to get a little caught up in his emotions, but boxing has seen this type of stuff for years and MMA will too.Nate Diaz kicks someone in the face while on the ground and White says nothing. I guess he has no problem when his fighters make another promotions look bad, when he says he hates things that are bad for the sport, I dont believe him, I think he means he hates things that make the UFC look bad.
ghostboner- May 10, 2010 at 3:29 pm
I would also like a transcript of what he said. Maybe Helwani can interview ruPaul Daley and we can get his side, and if he doesn't want to tell us the secret words then at the very least maybe he will drink a cup of his own fresh piss.
knee_strike- May 10, 2010 at 3:22 pm

As I've said, if White breaks his promise and allows Daley to fight in the UFC again, White will lose what's left of his integrity. After that, how will anyone be able to take anything he says seriously? I know I won't.


LOL. Yeah, I like how Kos kept it vague in the post-fight interview with Helwani. That was clever.
danimal450- May 10, 2010 at 3:10 pm
all i want 2 know is what "sweet nothings" were being whisperd into dailey ear 2 get him so fired up
AndyInflammatory- May 10, 2010 at 3:02 pm
lol @ final straw

...and Bisping would know about seeing stupid things - he's seen Zach Lyte with his shirt off
newdeal- May 10, 2010 at 2:57 pm
Had Daley known he was going to get cut he would probobly have put a bit of power behind the punch
Mr_Misanthropy- May 10, 2010 at 2:54 pm
What are the disastrous consequences of this dreaded "final straw" of whence you speak?
knee_strike- May 10, 2010 at 2:50 pm

"They should give this kid another shot."

No pun intended? Anyway, no they shouldn't. If they do, they'll lose what little integrity they have left.


"Dana has a secret and unspoken moral code: anything he says into a microphone does not have to contain one grain of truth."

Yeah, pretty much. If White lets Daley back into the UFC, that'll be the final straw.
