We’re less than a week away from the brash Brit, Michael Bisping, stepping back into the Octagon to take on Alan Belcher, and there has already been full of wild crap-talking moments. Remember when Cincinnati Bengal defensive end, Wallace Gillbury, put his $300,000 Bentley on the line in a wager that stated that Bisping couldn’t knock out Belcher in the first round?
Bisping responded by putting up the 20X less expensive Fiat 500, like a boss. So awesome.
Now it’s fight week, and the last salvo’s of trash talk are being prepared for launch, and Michael Bisping is pressing the red button with some harsh limelight realities for the fun-loving Belcher. This is what Bisping said on the pre-fight conference call:
“Alan Belcher, he’s trying to take a page out of my book or he’s trying to be Chael Sonnen. He’s being someone very, very different for this fight. I’m not quite sure I understand it. He’s trying to be all vocal, making video blogs and doing this and that, and he’s trying to convince himself he’s going to win the fight.
The reality of the situation is that his last fight he lost against Yushin Okami. Prior to that he was on a four-fight win streak. Now he’s coming off a loss and he’s co-main event. When he fought Yushin Okami he was a mid-card fighter, but now he’s fighting me and he’s co-main event. So, he’s trying to make the most out of the limelight.
I commend him for that, because after this fight no one’s going to give a shit about him. No one’s going to watch him. No one’s going to watch his stupid jiu-jitsu videos or go to his cocky little gym in the middle of nowhere. Good for him, he’s making the most out of a good situation.”
Say what you will about the trash talk, Alan Belcher is a hell of a fighter, and we think this scrap could steal the 159 show.
