Video: Bisping Blames Herb Dean For The Way His Face Looked After Silva Fight


A hard-fought decision victory isn’t the only thing Michael Bisping left the O2 Arena in London, England with on Saturday night. The popular British fighter also left with a badly beaten up face following his UFC Fight Night 84 war with MMA legend Anderson Silva, something the UFC 185-pound contender blames on veteran referee Herb Dean.

Michael “The Count” Bisping spoke with Ariel Helwani for after winning a disputed judges decision over the former longtime UFC Middleweight Champion on Saturday and revealed that he blames Herb Dean for a lot of the facial damage he suffered during the bout.

“I was talking to Herb Deab, saying, ‘Herb, my mouth piece,” exclaimed Bisping when explaining to Helwani what happened during a controversial spot in the middle of the fight. “You know, the guy …I don’t want to lose my teeth. Contrary to popular belief the British all don’t have bad teeth, and mine are okay.”

Bisping, who wasn’t fully “with it” as the situation unfolded inside the Octagon half-way through the fight, “thinks” the veteran referee is to blame for a lot of the physical damage he went on to suffer moments after the mouth piece controversy.

“So, you know, I don’t know. Herb Dean really needs to uhh …I blame Herb Dean for all of this …I think.”
