UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping first defended his title vs. Dan Henderson who is outside the top 10, and next defends it against Georges St-Pierre, who has not fought since 2013. However, The Count has engaged in verbal battles with the top contenders on a near daily basis, and it’s entertaining.
The most frequent target of Bisping’s verbal jabs is Yoel Romero, who recently called for an interim title fight between himself and Anderson Silva. The Count was not impressed.
“All his bulls*** rantings about me taking the fight with Dan, and he wants to turn around and ask for an interim title—with Anderson Silva, no less??,” wrote Bisping for Champions.co. “Could there be a bigger hypocrite? I think not.
“We already know Yoel is the biggest cheating scumbag in all the sport. He’ll do whatever he can; grab a fence, he’ll sit on the bench for way too long, he’ll cover himself in water to get a few more seconds of rest between rounds, and of course, he’ll take steroids till the damned cows come home.
“He got lucky because he had a very good legal team around him that helped him with this cooked up story of his. Somehow, they f***ing convinced #USADA it was a tainted supplement, otherwise known as the oldest trick in the book. Everybody has been going to that well, but one day, it’s going to run dry, and it will be interesting to see what the cheaters come up with next.
“I’m not surprised that he’s calling for an interim title fight, even though it’s absolutely ridiculous. The only time an interim title is needed is if the champion is injured or isn’t defending the belt. Well, I am. I’m defending it against Georges St-Pierre, whether he likes it or not. He’s coming up to the 185-pound limit. There’s absolutely no need for an interim title. The idea of it is laughable, but when you’ve got a guy who has no respect for the sport, a guy who has no honor, this is the kind of thing you come to expect.
