    Not to brag about myself and sound like a dick but, all of my 5 main bout fights predictions were EXACTLY RIGHT with the all the rounds, stoppages and decisions completely correct. Damn i’m good…LOL

    If you do not believe me check out the Post:

    "not to brag about myself and sound like a dick"

    you should have stopped there as the rest of that post sounds EXACT like that.

    Event is over, you backed the favourites….. they came out good! congrats? eh?

    Thanks Mike for the fake congrats, A Hole. I was just saying how all my predictions were right, i wasn't saying it to be an arronant dick. I was just sort of proud of myself for getting all them right. Winners, rounds and stopppages.

    But Mike, you can't quit saying dumb shit can you? I remember you saying Bisping was going to win by decision and i said Dan was going to KO him in the 2nd and you said that Dan was to slow to KO Bisping.


    And just about everyone on this web has said that you say a lot of dumb shit.

    Bisping is probably still sleeping, Al, with his baby bottle, blankie, and nice cumfy pillow. hahaha.

    Mir was definitely under-paid, IMO.

    But Dana has a huge organization to run, and that costs money. Sure, he should have paid the fighters a little more, but everyone can't make $400k and there still be a business. The ones who are really hurting are the lower end guys, who make like $7k a fight and fight maybe twice a year.

    you said first actually then said second when i said no way is it happening in first but… ok.

    you started out saying that you didn't want to brag but carrying on posting a brag post? thats like a face palm moment.

    no i said "Dan is slowing down" you argued that at 38 years old… there was no way he was slowing down (like eh? everyone slows down past 30 just go watch how much boxers slow down)

    i ALWAYS maintained that if Dan was going to beat him it was going to be by catching him with a big right, which Mike side stepped RIGHT into (i mean really really terrible idea)

    you might not have meant it to make you look like an Arrogant dick… but that IS how the post comes off. on a topic that has very little to do with predictions at that.

    most of the fighters are definetly underpaid. but shit, if u want more money, win it. just look at tom lawlor. he only got $8,000 to show up, and $8,000 for the win…BUT, he earned $100,000 for the sub of the night. so if u fight a great fight, and get a sub, ko, or fight, of the night, ur taken home a pretty damn good paycheck. if u want money, earn it.

    I was bragging a lil bit, but i wasn't meaning to come off like a arronant dick. No matter what you think. You can think what you want. Did you see the LOL, i was joking around with it.

    NO, YOU DID SAY BISPING WAS GOING TO WIN. And you said it would be a fluke if he KO'd Bisping. It wasn't a fluke, Bisping keeped moving left because he was eating big left hands from Dan and didn't like it. So Hendo stroked him with a bomb and put him asleep.

    Mike, why dont you just stop talking? There's a ton of people like me that have said that you dont know what your talking about like STEVEO, Dave, patrick bateman, Steve, Jay, Miko and myself.

    wtf Micheal is way over payed

  16. STEVEO

    July 14, 2009 at 8:58 am

    bisping and hendersen prolly both got a bit of a raise due to TUF I would imagine where that show hyped the shit out of this fight.

  17. Mike

    July 14, 2009 at 9:02 am

    Michael Bisping has a TUF winners contract with the UFC and generates good PPV sales in UK and the TUF coach of S9! (not that we could watch it anyways lol)

    sorry Zack but not everyone on this site knows everything, as i like to say "everyone begs to differ"

    yes i DID say i expect Bisping to win, but i didn't say it was impossible fo Dan to win, just Impossible for him to win without getting a good clean shot… and he did.

    But UFC has a lot uf fighters somepeople yu never see .And a lot uf them fight like never or 1 time a year some beter get a free agent more money in the pot and try to get a beter name out side uf the ufc .

    But thats just a tought idee that roams round in my head

    Mike, Hendo was winning the fight the entire time, landing good punches on Bisping and making him back up and run away the whole fight, like a scared lil bitch and i told you that would happen exactly. Yes? And he didn't have to KO Bisping to win, Dan would of won if the fight had continued and went to a decison. He was beating Bisping ass the whole time.
