Michael Bisping Believes He Won Fight With Wanderlei Silva

After dropping five of his last six fights, Wanderlei Silva found himself victorious once again in his first bout in the UFC’s middleweight division. The former PRIDE champion took home a unanimous decision over Michael Bisping this past Saturday at UFC 110: Nogueira Vs. Velasquez, his first victory in almost two years. While all three judges scored the fight 29-28 in favor of Silva (which was how we scored the bout as well), Bisping felt that he may have gotten the short end of the stick.

“It was a close fight,” Bisping noted during the UFC 110 post-fight press conference. “Personally, I think I won rounds one and two. Congratulations to him. Full credit to him on winning the fight. Personally, apart from the guillotine, and I got dropped in the third round, but apart from the guillotine attempt off the takedown in the second round, as far as round two, I really didn’t have any offense come my way. I felt I clearly won those two rounds.

“I’m a little annoyed, you know? I don’t come here to put on a good performance. I come here to win. Winning is what’s important. We don’t put all this effort in to lose to a good fight or a good performance. Yes, Wanderlei is a legend, and I was very proud to be in there with him, but I’m a little disappointed right now. I lost tonight. I’m pissed off about that. I don’t train this hard to get losses. But I want to get back in there ASAP and fight another good name and get back to my winning ways.”
