Alan Belcher Calls Out 'Professional Point Fighter' Bisping
By Jamie McAllister
Alan Belcher calls out Michael Bisping. Comments via Bloody Elbow.
“Bisping, of course, is getting to be a professional point fighter, and he’s kind of hard to beat like that. That fight would be a nice payday, and a big fight for the media, so I’m kind of leaning towards that one. It would make sense, and the fans would love it. I can almost feel the energy I would get from the fans if I put him to sleep. I can already kind of feel the kind of smack talking that he would be doing, and I think that he just honestly believes that he’s better than he is. I don’t think he respects me or considers me to be one of the top guys. It would feel good to beat him, but I don’t want to let those type of personal emotions get in the way of what’s really important, and that’s competing for the world championship and winning.”
Bisping is set to face Tim Boetsch at UFC 149 on July 21st. If he gets the win over Boetsch he will be back in the mix for a Middleweight Title shot.
Do you like the thought of Belcher vs. Bisping ? Or do you feel other match ups in the Middleweight division would make more sense for both fighters ?
