How dare Vitor call Bisping a hooligan.
How dare Vitor speak the truth.
Michael Bisping says 'cheater? Vitor Belfort can 'stick his text messages up his ass' - MMAmania.com
Bisping puts even the dirtiest player in the game to shame.
In Vitor's defense- The way he throws in rapid succession makes it almost impossible to reign those back in once he starts the onslaught and the opponent rolls or moves to get away. I personally have never found them to be offensively blatant or done on purpose.
People always bring up the Franklin punch but he CLEARLY went out after the first and then the second hit him because his head involuntarily turned.
I was disappointed Vitor Belfort started talking in tongues when asked about TRT recently.
In between lengthy references to the New Testament, Belfort basically said he doesn’t care if he hits opponents behind the head.
Vitor has one or two rounds to beat me – or try to hit me behind the head – and then his gas tank will be empty and the fight will look like that Rocky vs. that dead cow.”
I officially want Bisping to win now.
That shit was Hilarious!!!
Not researching prior fights to say one did or not but to say Bispings was in the heat of the momment and Victor wasn't is a scewed view. Lets not forget Bisping spitting at the opponets corner too same fight. I do relize I'm not a Bisping fan and key on his mistakes, but he's the pot calling the kettle black.
Vitor punches hard....really hard. He could have ended both the Akiyama and Franklin fights without the back of the head shots as well, imo.
I'm sure I'll get some stick for being a Bisping nuthugger for this post, and while I am a fan of Bisping, I like to think I'm fairly impartial and objective (I'd rather be honest with myself than blindly defend a particular fighter for the sake of 'fandom'). Also, as another disclaimer I'd just like to make it very clear I'm a big Belfort fan as well.
Anyway, I do have to say that yes, Bisping's knee to a downed Jorge was illegal, no doubt about it. It was an extremely emotionally-charged fight, and while this doesn't excuse it, it does go some way to explaining how a shot like that can be landed in the heat of the moment one fighter is standing and the other is making his way back to his feet. It occurred in a kind of scramble in so far as the fighters had not settled into a position, and were mid-transition.
But I think that if we look back at the careers of Bisping and Belfort we'd have to say that Belfort is one fighter that has been noted in the past - and on numerous occasions in at least two fights - for landing shots to the back of downed opponents. Furthermore, these shots have not just been significant, but they have ended the fight.
I just think we all need to look at the facts and try to look at the situation as objectively as possible, not blindly lean on the side of our chosen fighter.
I usually bitch about Vitors back of the head punches but Bisbing is one guy that if he doesn't go to sleep with that initial punch Belfort decks him with I wouldn't be bothered if Vitor mounted his back and donkey kong'd the shit out of Mike's head until he's humbled.
1. How did S=E not post this first?!?!
2. Bispings opinion on dirty fighting is about as relevant as marriage advice from OJ Simpson.
