Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Michael Bisping is a Bit of a Bully When He’s Drinking

(Video courtesy of YouTube/bobbycavian)

Michael Bisping was interviewed by Bobby Cavian from MMANYTT last week after the premiere of The Ultimate Fighter 14 and the slightly tipsy UFC middleweight, although *slightly* less abrasive than usual, was pretty much the exact type of guy his opposing coach, Jason “Mayhem” Miller would have taught a lesson to on Bully Beatdown.

From calling Cavian “a Swedish Hobbit” and insulting his attire to pushing him around and slapping him in the face, Bisping seemed to take pages out of “Rampage” and Forrest Griffin‘s playbook for the Q&A session. He better hope he doesn’t meet up with Dan Henderson on the MTV show if Mayhem shows up at his door with Cavian to throw down the gauntlet.

“The Count” actually made it more than halfway through the interview without bragging about himself, which is quite an accomplishment for a megalomaniac like him. Like clockwork though,  as soon as he was asked a question about “Mayhem” coming in from Strikeforce and stealing his so-called UFC thunder, he says that there’s no way he’s going to let “the codger” take what he’s “worked hard to achieve.”

We’ll now go to Chael Sonnen‘s Twitter to speak to these claims:

Some unintentional comedy came out of the interview with Bisping’s revelation that he was voted “The UK’s Coolest Guy of 2008″ behind Liam Gallagher. We can think of a few different adjectives than “coolest” that better suit the name of the award, which, by the way was bestowed upon him by the little known Zoo Magazine.

His insinuation that he and Miller actually throw down during this season of TUF better not be bullocks.

Have any of you met Bisping? I actually have (right before UFC 96 at a mall in Dublin OH) and he's very open to meeting fans and just talking for a bit. Got an autograph without feeling like I was bothering him or anything. Same day I met Tiki Ghosn...who is a massive tool. I feel like Bisping just plays the heel thing when a camera is in front of him. And I completely do not understand how people hate him for the Rivera knee when Henderson did way worse to him years prior. It's the same thing, both guys were pissed at the other guy for trash talking and threw an illegal strike.

I love you cagepotato but you guys are such babies when it comes to interviews. Bisping gave an outstanding interview here. He is entertaining, and thebanter is playfull at worse. There is nothing wrong with the way Forrest or Rampage interview either.

Ok, so i'm british, and i think i speak for all of us when i say, that we hate bisping just as much as you do.

Bisping is an A-hole no matter what he is drinking. If it wasn't for patriotic Brits, he would have no fans. He is the epitome of douchebag and a complete idiot, whom everytime he opens his mouth, makes himself look even worse. I'm not a fan of Chael, but loved that tweet. One of my all-time favorite MMA memories is when he got his face smashed by Hendo. Douchebaggery at it's finest.....Bispit.

so is this interview a few weeks old? cuz that sonnen tweet is a few weeks old... and if I remember correctly that was in response to another interview bisping did... so r we just rehashing everything sonnen does? is this cp's lame attempt at lionizing sonnen and cutting down bisping? while it's true bisping is hardly deserving of a title shot... he might be the only option left at mw

Even when he interviews with a guy who's half his size with no fighting background, Bisping still comes off as uneasy and insecure. Hes trying to smile and joke around and say that hes in a rush so hurry the questions but its like he's pissed off the entire time. He cant stop from tough guy groping the interviewer. Its like he's trying to assert his dominance the entire time. Bisping, chill the fuck out. Your as cool as a god damn cast iron skillet.

More like the hobbit from Thriller...
I mean, who puts on that jacket and says, "what do you want to talk about?"
Bisbing was baited, lol. I was even on his side till, "you know what...2008..."
