    UFC TUF Nations Finale: Michael Bisping fires back at 'Comrade' Tim Kennedy for being a socialist
    http://www.mmamania.com/2014/3/14/55...-socialist-mma
    Earlier this week, Kennedy unloaded on "The Count" for a number of transgressions inside the cage, including wanton eye pokes and unsportsmanlike conduct. While Bisping originally brushed off his opponent's critique with a yawn, he's now been given a chance to vent on Yahoo! Sports.

    His words:

    For a guy who goes on and on about the American Way and being a patriot, Kennedy sure sounds like a Communist.

    This Comrade Kennedy thinks fighters should be paid the same rate no matter how much - or in his case how little - value they bring to the company or an event. He doesn't believe in market value, paying your dues or working your way to the top or any of those uncool things. He wants to come out of the military, do MMA as a second career, not be that great at it, but be paid as much as an eight-year UFC veteran in his very first UFC fight.

    And for all his bitching and moaning about how much money the UFC should be paying him at UFC 162, Comrade Kennedy had, hands down, the worst fight of the entire UFC 162 card. It was one of the worst main card fights of last year - it was embarrassing. There was so little actual fighting going on, if they'd had that fight on a school playground most teachers wouldn't have even bothered breaking it up.

    Listen, I don't obsess about what other fighters earn like our socialist friend Timmy does. If someone is getting paid well, providing for their family, great for them. That's what I am about, too. The only fighter paycheck I'm familiar with has the name "Michel Bisping" on it, but, that said, whatever the UFC paid Kennedy that night was too f---ing much.

    He should adopt a pirate gimmick, and fight with the eye patch.

    Hope he gets cleared to fight Tim. I think it would be a pretty even fight. Kennedy is on a run.

    Status of Michael Bisping's eye injury 'inconclusive,' further tests expected

    Results of the eye test UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping underwent in London late last week came back "inconclusive," according to Bisping's manager Audie Attar, via a report from Ariel Helwani on UFC Tonight.

    Bisping pulled out of a scheduled bout against Mark Munoz in September 2013 after suffering a detached retina -- an injury which Bisping initially suffered at UFC 159 and eventually left him nearly blind in his right eye.

    Bisping subsequently developed a cataract in the same eye, which led UFC officials to request further testing to gauge Bisping's depth perception and peripheral vision before allowing him to return to competition.

    According to Attar, physicians in London were unable to secure the correct equipment to properly test Bisping's eye, and Bisping is now expected to re-undergo testing on his right eye at a date yet to be decided.

    As if this writing, Attar is unsure what effect the ambiguous result of Bisping's test will have on the Brit's planned grudge match against Tim Kennedy, which is intended to headline April 16's TUF Nations finale in Quebec, Canada.

    no April 16th is the Wednesday before the Orlando card. That is when the Ultimate Fighter Australia vs Canada finale is.

    Not sure why people are surprised Kennedy is the easier fight.. Bisping wants the easy route to the title and Zuffa wants to keep him relevant.
