UFC 120 Post-Fight Interviews: Michael Bisping, Dan Hardy, Dana White

Some more on-the-scene videos from our good friends at First up, Michael Bisping promises that Yoshihiro "Ironhead" Akiyama would have eventually gone down if it were a five-round fight, but says there’s no shame in not being able to put him away. He calls Mark Kinney the best boxing coach he’s ever worked with, and feels that he’s finally putting Mark’s lessons into practice. As for his future, the Count still has his eyes on the prize. "I’ve been around for a long time now, I’m not getting any younger," Bisping says. "Now it’s time to do it, it’s time to put in a run for a title and hopefully get the gold."

After the jump, Dan Hardy reflects on his knockout loss against Carlos Condit, and our BFF Dana White discusses educating new markets on MMA, the question of "morality" that jackass politicians bring up around the world, and the new "GSP is bigger than Gretzky" talking point he’s been testing out recently. For lots more UFC 120 interviews, check out

Bonus: The fast-paced UFC 120 prelim brawl between James McSweeney and Fabio Maldonado can be seen right here. Definitely more worthy of the Fight of the Night bonus than Bisping/Akiyama, if you ask us…

fuck me, I'm a Dan Hardy fan.

guy puts ona show, owns up to his losses like a man, how the fuck he didnt tap against GSP, I'll never know...fuck it, Im with that limey bastard!!

Hey pisstank, letz drink some room temp ale and hug this shit out?!?!

GSP bigger than Gretzky? nigshutchormouff! That statement boggles my fuckin mind. The list of accomplishments is far too fuckin long to list here, this argument is a total fuckin waste of time. There a parts of Canada were DFW better watch his ass.

Hockey is irrelevant? Explain to me why the consistenly shittiest fuckin hockey team is the hardest to get tickets to?? and its the highest grossing team in the league, playin worthless games while the Tampa Bay shitstains or whoever the fuck it was, had to give away tix in the tens of thousands to get people to come see them in a playoff race?

Hmmmm, GSP v's Gretzky, from an Aussie perspective, as Kimbo suggested, people would have heard of both of em, but you'd have to remind the majority of the population what each guy did

Just for reference - - no one outside of north America, a few Russian's and a few Scandinavians gives a fiddlers wank about Ice Hockey.

@ MoTropolis - in defense of your earlier point, we all love MMA, but no way is GSP as big as Gretzky was during his time. I live about as far from hockey's main fanbase as is possible in America, and I still knew who Gretzky was when I was 5 years old. Gretzky was a much bigger North American and international athlete than GSP, and there is no disputing that. Gretzky was on Wheaties boxes and Sports Illustrated covers, and in the top ten of lists of greatest athletes of all time. Just because hockey wasn't that popular everywhere doesn't mean people didn't know its iconic athlete. Hell, Lance Armstrong is a bigger international athlete than GSP, and I don't know a single person who likes cycling. MMA just isn't quite there yet.

It was actually a grey tee with an oil stain that his uncle brought him back from his trip to jersey.

@ MRuss - Don't they hand those out to all Canadians when they turn 5? Kind of like Mao's little red book in China.

First of all, the end of the McSweeny fight was awesome, when Maldonado went to grab James' hand and raise it after the fight and McSweeny winced in pain from broken ribs Im assuming. This guy just doesnt look like a fighter in my eyes. When he was at HW it was apparent he wasnt gonna hang with the UFC caliber guys at that weight. He looked lumpy and slow. And now at LHW he looks better physically buy awkward as hell. Even in the first round, which he clearly won, he looked funny bouncing around, trying to be light on the feet.

And as far as DW's analogy goes, its complete bullshit. KimbosStarch makes a good point on his 2nd post. To make the claim that either one of those guys is better than the other, you have to essentially compare the popularity and history of the sport in which they compete. It seems that hockey is losing popularity as the UFC is growing which kinda makes sense if you think about all the hockey fans who jumped ship when they found out they can watch a sport where 2 guys are supposed to beat the shit out of each other instead of pretending to be into ice skating while waiting for a violent outbreak. GSP is def the bigger international star than Gretzky ever was/will be, but its mostly accredited to the popularity and growth of the sport he is in. In America, I dont think GSP is even close to how popular Gretzky was in his prime. I bet a lot more people heard of GSP but wouldnt be able to pick him out of a line up where as Gretzky's face was everywhere during the 90's. He had more posters and people wearing his jersey than there are people with GSP posters now or wearing his endorsed gear. I mean, Wayne was in Nestle Crunch commercials for fucks sake...I want you all to close your eyes now and imagine GSP saying "No botty bett ur lay a fing ah on mai butter fing ah." Shit aint happening.

why are they both whispering?
Kimbos Bread- October 18, 2010 at 8:02 am
@ newdeal

That's true but it has nothing to do with what Dana is saying.

How many people in Brazil know or care about Gretzky? What about Dubai? Or even compare GSP and Gretzky's popularity in Australia. The point is clear, hockey isn't as popular right now as MMA is on the international scene. Countries wilth little or no snow generally have more interest in MMA than hockey, but countries with snow, like Canada, still have an interest in MMA. Therefore, on the international scene it makes sense to say GSP has greater popularity as a Canadian athlete.

Gretzky is way bigger than GSP in Canada and he hasn't played hockey in years. There isn't one Canadian who doesn't know who Gretzky is but there are a ton who have never heard of GSP
Kimbos Bread- October 18, 2010 at 7:40 am
GSP is bigger the Gretzky ever was internationally. But for his respective sport, he has nowhere near the talent of The Great One. Only guy who comes close is Fedor.

But at least GSP has never sold out Canada to the US for a paycheck like Gretzky did.

It's spelled GretZky. Not Gretsky.

MR, that had better not have been you. YOU ought to know better.

Old Dad would have checked.
