(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.
