| “The guy’s a lot better than I thought. I wrestled and rolled with him, and he’s hard as fuck to take down, hard to hold down. He’s a lot stronger than he looks. He looks good, fit, but he’s strong. He’s fast, he’s an athlete. He’s a fucking good athlete. That’s the most surprising thing…. Coming in, I know how tough Dan (Henderson) is. I fought alongside him in Pride and I didn’t know … now I’m confident in Mike. Sparring and wrestling with him has made me confident.” |
Mixed martial arts veteran, Phil Baroni — who has competed all over the world and trained in several of the best gyms in the nation, including American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) and X-Treme Couture — talks about a recent workout with Micheal Bisping. “The Count” — who has battled harsh critics ever since winning The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 — is preparing for the biggest fight of his career against former dual Pride FC champion, Dan Henderson, at UFC 100 on July 11. He is currently the underdog with most sportsbooks (+190), as well as among most fans outside of his native United Kingdom. Is it because of the experience factor (he’s clearly overmatched), his perceived arrogant personality, or as Baroni suggests, is Bisping just terribly underrated? We’ll find out in a few weeks, but for now sound off in the comments section below.
Bisping: “Tune in to see the first time ever Dan Henderson gets KO’ed” |
UK middleweight star, Michael “The Count” Bisping has upped the ante ahead of his UFC 100 clash with former PRIDE veteran, Dan Henderson, promising to be the first man to knock the 38 year old out.
Speaking on the recent UFC 100 preview, Bisping said:
“He's got a vicious right hand with a lot of power in it -- he's knocked out a lot of guys. I think I'm going to be too quick for him. I don't think he's going to land that big shot. I don't see Dan Henderson -- no disrespect -- at 38 years of age, I think he's got to be slowing down a bit. I don't think he's going to catch me with it. ... Tune in to see the first time ever Dan Henderson gets knocked out.”
The two “Ultimate Fighter” coaches square off on the main card at UFC 100 with many questions likely to be answered about whether Bisping can become a legitimate contender at 185 pounds. It is thought that a win would grant him a shot at Anderson Silva’s crown over in the UK before the year is out.
