Bisping Already Calling Out Weidman


Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman appeared recently on Ariel Helwani’s The MMA Hour, and offered unkind remarks about Michael Bisping. ‘The Count’ replaced Weidman when he dropped out of the fight with current champion Luke Rockhold.

Bisping on “a silver platter” was the “easiest title fight in the history of title fights,” declared Weidman.

Bisping was not impressed.

“Chris Weidman is a very, very bitter individual for somebody that spouts on about Jesus,” Bisping said Wednesday at UFC 199 open workouts, as transcribed by Marc Raimondi for MMA Fighting. “He just needs to take a step back and go read the Bible some more. Take heed to his own words. Don’t be bitter. He hurt himself, simple as that. It had nothing to do with me. I didn’t hurt his neck. Did I hurt his neck? What the f*** has that got to do with me, pal?”

“Two years, two weeks, two months, two days. I don’t care. Half of this UFC roster are pussies. They wouldn’t take this fight. ‘Jacare’ wouldn’t take this fight. It makes me sick. I’ll fight anyone, any time, any place. I just proved that. I took a fight on two weeks notice. I’m gonna walk off a movie set, I’m gonna walk into the Octagon, I’m gonna take Luke Rockhold‘s belt. He’s gonna lie on the floor, he’s gonna wake up looking at the stars [and say], ‘Fuck! This guy just beat me on two weeks notice.'”

“The opponent isn’t important. This is about me. This is about fulfilling destiny. Whether or not it’s Luke Rockhold, Muhammad Ali — it doesn’t matter. It’s gonna take a bullet to the brain to stop me on Saturday.”

“Weidman, sort your s*** out and come back. When I beat Luke Rockhold, Weidman can be my first defense. And I’ll shut that a****** up once and for all.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
