Michael Bisping Tired Of Criticism From American Fans


Michael Bisping,

“I always hear the same comments all the time, ‘He is an arrogant so and so’, the truth is I’m not, I think I’m very humble and I’ve got a long way to go … I train very hard, I do my best and I’m trying to support my family.”

“They’re always going on about how bad I was on the Ultimate Fighter, I for the life of me can’t see what I did wrong, I was just trying to help my team win … Yes there was a bit of fun and banter back and forth, but it was just a pisstake. Bloody hell, get over it.”

“Also I think it was the fact I was the Team UK coach and they thought I was anti-US, which wasn’t the case at all but maybe that was the way it was portrayed and perceived, so now they like to criticise me, whatever, I know in England I’ve got a fan base and in Canada and hopefully here in Canada …. If that’s how they’re going to be then so be it, tough luck.” [smh.com.au]

Bisping takes on Wanderlei Silva this Saturday at UFC 110 in Australia.

    Agreed, it has nothing to do with being British. Your disliked cause you behave like a punk…

    Agreed…..once again, nothing to do with nationality. Bisping is a prick….flat out! Loved watching Henderson crush his head!

    I like bisping as a fighter. I don't give 2 shits about his personality. If I knew him I might, but he's a fighter…I like to watch him fight. If he wants to talk shit I don't really care.

    I can appreciate his zeal for competition during the Ultimate Fighter. He was on team UK and did everything in his power for his team including having a little fun as he says. Good for him. I am very patriotic for the good ole USA and can't blame anyone for being patriotic to their homeland. Bottom line is he seems like a good guy. I don't think he won the fight against Hammil and I think he lacks serious power, but all in all he is in the UFC after all and I appreciate his work ethic. What can I say, I have been watching MMA since '93 and I love the sport.

    Can't stand him! But I can see why he is so cocky, he is the UK's top dog. He is number one over there. It would be hard not to let that go to your head. Still a douch though.

    bisbing is one of the most overrated fighters out there today. i can't wait until he gets cut from the UFC.

    Bisbing is pretty cocky but when you get right down to it, good for him. He works his ass and does his best. He did piss me off a couple times during TUF. The water in the face thing really pissed me off, hello this is the US you just can't throw water in someones face and expect everyone to laugh. But it made the knock out from Henderson oh so much better. So good job, keep up the hard work. A little drama makes it that much more exciting.

    everbody hates him because he made jokes about the deaf guy hammill( the guy that fought bones jones) in the ultimate fighter

    I really don't see the UFC cutting him for a long, long time. He is the face of the UFC in Europe. Dana isn't that stupid…

    What Bisping does not get and apparently some of these posters, is that Martial Artists are trained with regard for honor. For Bisping this is lacking, perhaps in the UK honor has no real place in Martial Arts as it does in Brazil and the USA and Canada and the Orient, but he turned the reality show from a MMA structure into something resembling the Jersey Shore, which is exactly where this putz should be playing his games.

    It is difficult to explain honor to those that have none.

    well said OZ, I think its just that. I am a soldier I represent my country and if I was walking around on national television acting like a huge dipshit like Bisping was, I would be ashamed of myself. Thats the face of British MMA a oud mouth retard walking around throwing tantrums like a little kid.

    It's simple here in America. Don't be an ass, and we won't give you shit. Be a douche, and we'll call you on it. And Bisping is an expert in douchebaggery.

    Well said CobraClutch. simply put and right to the point.

    And it goes double for Canadians. Obnoxiousness instantly hated.

    oh and one more thing. I know he was cheered in Montreal when he fought so now he thinks he has Canadian fans.

    I don't know what the hell that was all about.

    They must have been cheering him because he won in such a fantastic fashion against a guy that no one really knew about.

    I'm from Montreal and I can't stand him.

    None of my friends who are hardcore or casual mma fans can stand him either.

    NO Montrealer I've talked MMA with likes him.

    So He may not have as many fans as he thinks.

    I dont think he really cares if people like him or not, hell why should he. To be honest, he's british and he'll like it cause brits love being the underdogs in fights and thats what Bisping will be in loads of fights just because people hate him.

    I like his fights dont care about his personality. With the rise of british fights he's not my favourite british fighter though, that gos to Semtex and Hardy

    Again Ross, it just comes down to honor. I suppose its instilled in one by their parents and/or teachers or its not.

  20. Miko

    February 20, 2010 at 12:26 am

    Ross: He must care at least a little or I doubt he'd bitch about it on a public forum.

    Everyone loves the Underdog (England, USA, Canada, Wherever)… unless the underdog is annoying and cocky.

    Then people just want to see it kicked back to its corner.
