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

So We’re Really Doing This, Eh Bisping?

Michael Bisping wrestling UFC 100
(Combat Lifestyle captures Bisping’s wrestling practice at the brand new TapouT training center in Las Vegas.)

Here’s Michael Bisping, or as he will soon come to be known, “Johnny Takedown,” working on his wrestling skillz in advance of his UFC 100 bout with Dan Henderson next weekend.  You’ll recall that we previously laughed off the idea that Bisping might try and take Hendo down rather than just focusing all his energy on trying to stay upright.  And sure, maybe double-legs were only 10% of a wrestling practice that was 90% about sprawling and scrambling back to the feet.  Still, training takedowns this close to the fight makes it seem suspiciously like Bisping intends to turn Henderson’s greatest strengths against him.

If that is the plan, it’s now officially the worst kept secret in MMA.  Imagine how shocked Henderson would have been to see Bisping shoot for a takedown right off the bat.  Not now though.  After his wrestling coach blew up his spot and these pictures hit the internet, it’s safe to say the element of surprise is gone.

Wow, Bisping has no idea what he is doing on the ground, a middle schooler could probably beat him. Last time I saw him he was on a riding snow blower in East Liverpool.

Wow UFC Fan you really put me in my place. I love how you rant on about getting rid of trolls like Hal when everyone on here knows that you are just like Hal and always have been. Go back and read through your posts and I guarantee that 90% of them are you just talking shit. And yes I do not have any real friends on here, do you? How many of these posters do you know in real life? Go back to your pathetic shit talking I am done with this.

Kadumbel your stupidity is only overshadowed by your bigger mouth. You admit to having no friends, yet call Me a troll.
All I can say is "pot the kettle wants his BLACK back!"
so back under the bridge with you.
If I didn't have to spend time tearing down little nobodys like you and 831 son I might be able to talk more MMA, but we slowly got rid of shitheads like Hal, maybe you and 831 can go next.
OR maybe you can keep whining like a pair of transvestites in heat.

Dangerous Dan by malicious onslaught.
Kadumel- July 1, 2009 at 6:42 pm

I dont have any friends on here I just hate trolls like yourself. Most of the people I see on here are usually here toi discuss MMA, 831 Son included. People like you just come here to get people riled up because you have no real life friends.
UFC fan- July 1, 2009 at 6:01 pm
Oh I am so sorry KaDUMBel your invitation is in the mail, don't get uptight!
when I get the GAY army all together, I will remember you, you can be one of the generals, along with your salad tossing ballchinian friend 831 son.

@UFC Fan
I'm not new here, just a lurker. I actually used to post a ton more before when I didn't have to sign in. Then I just stopped reading comments for a while because it was all spam, and last night I was just in the mood to post something."

Oh ok well that's cool. You prolly lurked cause of shitheels like 831 son, but that's ok as you see I have his number pretty well , ha. I know just how to make him cry like the cunt he is. But he is a great target feel free to shoot at it anytime, hes nobody around here anyways just some fag from cali trying to act all tough.
Glad to see you are posting more now that you are regged in, cause we need more posts to offset the garbage being posted by idiots like 831 and his gay friends.

now back to the topic: Hendo will crush pisspenis like I would crush 831 son. why wait for Anderson Silva to do it, besides who knows if Anderson wouldn't weird out again and pretend hes Bruce Lee in a dance movie, I want Hendo to do the beating....and he will.

I totally agree that I feel Hendo will win, yet the consequences of Bisping pulling it out are more fun. I also feel that if Bisping wins we may see the decline pick up pace in Hendo's career. The man is almost 39, and he definitely wears the mask of battle.

This is a very volatile match in the sense that it's hard to pick either side. But the three main events for 100 are all very volatile. You just can't say what is going to happen when Brock Lesnar enters the cage, and Alves will definitely be GSP's greatest test thus far.
CreamyTitties- July 1, 2009 at 10:10 am
I'm not sure Hendo still has it, either a big one punch KO or he loses. You guys seem to forget that Rousimar blew his doors off once in their fight.
Keyser Soze- July 1, 2009 at 8:35 am
I'm just glad to see the UFC finally stop babying Bisping and put him in the ring with a real fighter, not some chump. Hendo's wrestling and ground and pound are far superior to Bisping's, and his takedown defense is better than Bisping can dish out.

I think Bisping's mind games as to whether or not he'll shoot won't work on a seasoned vet like Hendo, and his stand up game is still a work in progress. Bisping's best chance a squeaking out a victory lies in the outside game, picking shots at the lead leg of Hendo trying to slow him down and using one-two combos with the hands trying to outpoint Hendo in a decision.

I give Hendo the edge in a tactical fight, and see him being patient, waiting for Bisping to commit and get caught flat-footed leading to a takedown and ground and pound session. I can't foresee a submission result in this fight for either fighter, but stranger things have happened.

That being said, I'm truly on the fence over this fight. I would like Hendo to win (and I believe he will) as I find Bisping to be extraordinarily cocky and a prick, and would enjoy watching Bisping getting humbled and put in his place. However, I don't see a rematch vs. Silva ending up much differently than the first time they met.

Alternatively, Bisping gets the surprise win, and earns a title shot vs. Silva, where he's delivered a world class ass-whooping and humiliated when his future trash talk comes back to bite him in the ass. Bisping winning over Hendo at UFC 100 would only lead to a bigger ego, and would make it all the more crushing when his ass is handed to him in his title shot fight.

I think Hendo wins, but I like the ramifications of BIsping pulling out the victory.

I think December's PPV is going to be insane, and there's a strong possibility of a better fight card put together than the one at UFC 100. The timing is right for the next lightweight, welterweight, and heavyweight division title shots to be lined up, and the middleweight division could be up for grabs as well if Silva gets past Griffin unscathed.

lol @ the expression on Bispings face; he looks like he has Downsyndrome :/
Perma- July 1, 2009 at 12:03 am
I hope Hendo "Babulu's his ass"(Does not stop when the fight is over either choking or punching him until is tackled then stands up and talks shit to his face)

Then I hope Bisping is attacked and beat down on his way out of Vegas.

You would be taking a dirt nap if I ever saw you fag. Go fucking play in your room you little girl. You are a moron and everyone knows it. Kill yourself already.
Deadpanda- June 30, 2009 at 11:47 pm
Hendo's going to grind him into chuck steak.
UFC fan- June 30, 2009 at 10:36 pm
welcome to the hub derly..and if you look to your left you will see that 831 son is a cocksucker, along with a few others. thanks for coming by don't forget to tell 831 to bite your ass on the way out daily....he secretly likes it.
Darkside- June 30, 2009 at 9:18 pm
So that's what Mask looks like in real life. Wish we could see his face...
Frank Mur- June 30, 2009 at 7:54 pm
I just hope, for the sake of all that is good in this world, that Bisping isn't deliberately throwing that dude a "Wrist deep Shocker" along with that Half Assed double!
Takun- June 30, 2009 at 7:34 pm
Bisping's exact thoughts, "This cock is mine, RAPE TACKLE".....just saying..

It has to be trying to mind fuck Hendo. Maybe if Hendo is waiting for the shot the whole time he won't let his hands go and Bisping can pick him apart on his feet for a decision, OR just stand with him until the 3rd when Hendo thinks he isn't going to wrestle after all and then catches him off guard. IMO Bisping has no chance against Hendo if his game plan relies on taking Hendo down, and KEEPING him down.
Kadumel- June 30, 2009 at 6:57 pm
And it definately looks like Bisping is doing the penis in the cheek thing.
Kadumel- June 30, 2009 at 6:56 pm
I laughed my ass of at 831 son
clutchy hopkins- June 30, 2009 at 5:48 pm

Everyone knows the Brits are amazing wrestlers. That's why Dana had the American Team on TUF 9 stuffed to the gills w. NCAA Champs.
