Michael Bisping will keep MMA fans interested in the lead-up to his fight with Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping later this month thanks to a blog he is doing for Yahoo! Sports. Recently, “The Count” discussed a pair of middleweight fights that ended with stunning results.
Alan Belcher and Tim Boetsch were each looking to make statement victories late in December at UFC 155, but neither did. Belcher was defeated by Yushin Okami, while Boetsch fell to Costa Philippou.
The fights did not miss the view of Bisping, who discussed them in his recent entry.
“I’d like to say I’m looking forward to these two simpletons keeping their pie holes shut about me for a little while,” Bisping wrote. “Those two have been calling me out and talking crap for months, and I would have got some real enjoyment beating them in the Octagon, but two no-marks took that glory.”
Bisping isn’t one to keep quiet, as he continued to lay into Belcher for his performance, writing, “Belcher lost every minute of every round in a fight so boring I was afraid my brain was going to melt and start to dribble out of my ears. It was like someone detonated a nuclear bomb of boredom in the arena – everyone in the seats around me was playing Angry Birds.”
The former winner of The Ultimate Fighter has been told that if he defeats Belfort in Brazil, he will be next in line for a title shot. Bisping is 5-1 in his last six, with the lone loss coming to Chael Sonnen.
