Michael Bisping, current coach of The Ultimate Fighter Season 9, had some strong words recently for both Thales Leites and UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva. Bisping criticized both fighters for their disappointing fight this past Saturday at UFC 97, saying that they should hang their heads in shame and that he would have fought harder than both of them put together.
“I wasn’t impressed at all with the main event,” Bisping wrote in his blog on UFC.com. “You never want to disrespect fellow fighters, much less two contesting a UFC world title, but I think both guys should hang their heads in shame, quite honestly. Leites probably won the first two rounds but nothing happened in the fight.
“I fought on the first card in Montreal last April, and the Canadians are tremendous supporters of the UFC. They deserved a hell of a lot better than they got from these two. I’ve seen more aggression from my fiancé when she hits the January sales.”
Anderson Silva may have a chance to respond personally to Bisping’s blog. Bisping may be next in line for a shot at the middleweight title held by Silva should he defeat rival Ultimate Fighter Season 9 coach Dan Henderson at UFC 100on July 11th, 2009.
