Michael Bisping: Wanderlei Is “A Bit Of A Bully”

(Skip to the 2:18 mark to see Bisping seeking solace in the arms of his Twitter followers)

In Michael Bisping‘s latest video blog from Australia he pauses for a moment to get one thing straight: it’s not his fault that things have gotten personal between him and Wanderlei Silva.  For reasons that are either totally understandable or utterly baffling (depending on your own personal take on the guy), Bisping seems to have become the guy that fans and fellow fighters love to hate.  He doesn’t see why, and insists he never wanted to get into a feud with Silva, who he calls "a bit of a bully." 

It is at this point where we are forced to feel something resembling sympathy for Bisping.  It’s a fleeting feeling though, and it passes as soon as we see the moment from the press conference in part two of the video blog where Bisping tells Silva, "You do need to win fights in this business, Wanderlei, and you haven’t been doing that lately."  Yep, there goes that sympathy.  All better now.

Check it out for yourself after the jump, including the odd moment where this fight is referred to as "perhaps one of the most eagerely anticipated bouts in UFC history."  I guess at this point we’re just spouting hyperbole and hoping that no one is listening too closely.

"and it seems obvious that he's trying hard to become liked"

personally those are the guys who piss me off the most. I don't have any problem with his slang, accent, nationality etc. just the douchyness. Oh no.. nobody likes you, his opponent disrespected him. He is a professional fighter, get over it.

It seems to me that alot of people are shitting all over Bisping for PAST transgressions. I've always dug Wanderlei's stuff and I'm definitely not a fan of Bisping's, but I can't help but feel for a guy who receives so much hate. He appears to have been humbled by the Hendo incident, imo, and it seems obvious that he's trying hard to become liked, particularly by American fans. How many times has he apologized for using British slang in his vblogs/interviews? When he mentioned that Wandy hasn't won much lately, that wasn't trash-talk, it was a statement of fact.
That aside, WAR WANDY!

Does anyone else think that Silva looks a lot like a real-life version of Homer Simpson?

I will have a Sonnen/Marquardt moment of surprise and disappointment if Bisping manages to win a decision. Silva has to smash him.

this will be the nail in the coffin for bisping's title aspirations!!

So much hate for Bisping. I'm not a fan of either fighter but i see Bisping taking the win on Saturday/Sunday.

According to the dictionary, perhaps means "Not really, I'm just making this shit up".

I am from England, and hope Bisping get knocked. It is funny how no one in the count down or in the Vblogs has mentioned that Bisping got knocked the fuck out by some one who throws loopy punches. He prob begged Dana to cut that shit out!

At least Bisping isn't being fed the cans to munch on. Back to back fights against some MMA legends who are fading from their prime. Perhaps another concussive KO is in order...make it two barkeep

I have long since held the belief that "shut up" is always an awesome comeback if used correctly.

I definitely like Wanderlei's style of trash-talking. Really shows exactly what the difference is between confident and cocky.
Ganja Man 10- February 18, 2010 at 10:54 am
im from liverpool, england .. i aint british im a scouser.. major difference!!
he dosent talk that much shit bisping.. not as much as some americans.

Wanderlei IS a bit of a bully. That was his whole shtick in PRIDE. Funny to see the nubs forget this.

Michael "The Mangina" Bisping really is annoying. Henderon must have hit him harder than we thought because he seems to have knocked his memory of his entire career clean out of his head.

Is it wrong that the most impressive part of that video to me was the walls on the bowling lanes?

I sincerely hope Wandy lodges his foot firmly in Bisping's ass.

It's unfortunate that Bisping can't remember his ass being handed to him by Hendo last year...
