Bisping Happy With Boetsch Booking, Not Impressed With Munoz

“I have never really looked at Mark Munoz and thought he looked like a particularly dangerous opponent. His ground and pound looks good, his wrestling doesn’t look all that dangerous, his stand up is suspect and he’s got a weak chin. I think Tim Boetsch is probably a harder fight.”

Earlier this week Mark Munoz expressed his displeasure for being passed up to fight Bisping in favor of Tim Boetsch.

But if you ask “The Count” he thinks Boetsch poses the bigger challenge.

    That’s my KING right there.. Bisping baby!!!

    • BiggoTrav says:

      Good, I was thinking I was the only one that liked the guy! Although I must say, I disagree with him… I think Munoz is easily twice the fighter Boetsch is. Although, I have been wrong before… that was before I could talk though, so it doesn’t really count.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Bisping knows already the UFC won’t make him fight Munoz because he has power and tehy will never make the HENDO mistake again with Bisping. Bisping is PROTECTED by the UFC more than any other fighter so he that is why he calkls out other fighters when he’s already booked to fight someone else. Bisping will use his usual pitter patter an d run a way from Boecth and eeeeek out a boring asss decsion. Bispings coming off a loss and Boetch is coming off a big win so why if that down’t matter anymore didn’t UFC cancel Belcher fight and make Bisping fight Palharis. Answer they will NEVER let Palharis or Belfort in cage with Bisping. Yes theyw ill make everyone else fight each otehr but Bisping won’t have to fight any of the deadly powerhouses in MW division. Can you imagine how happy fans would be to see Palharis rip Bispings shoulder or knee apart? Bisping wouldn’t last one round with Vitor or Palharis but these stupid ass rankings like sherdog and Fight magazine have Bisping ranked higher. Total UFC politics.

    Somebody is trying yo hype up a fight.

  3. Rampage says:

    Not a Bisping fan, but I agree 100%. Even being Filipino I don’t give a shit about Munoz. I think he’s a frontrunner, and I don’t like his nickname the Filipino Wrecking Machine only because I don’t want filipinos associated with losing.

  4. “His wrestling doesn’t look all that dangerous”
    Two Big 12 titles and a silver medal in the FILA junior World Wrestling team is nothing to worry about.

    “He’s got a weak chin”
    Man, I wish I could remember who was on the receiving end of the most memorable knockout in UFC history.
    Lets ask Dan Henderson.

    • Thurgood Jenkins says:

      Oh yea, that knockout was fantastic. I dunno if that would constitute a weak chin though. Bisping has fought some great strikers and has only been stopped once. Henderson threw a perfect punch that landed in the perfect spot, perhaps most calculated punch in UFC history. I think Franklin knocking out quarry was just as memorable though.

      • Bla DeBla says:

        Difference being that Bisping needed someone to shut his mouth .

        He disrespected Dan Hendersons ability & paid a heavy price .

        It was one of the most amazing KO’s I have seen in my entire life , in any sport or street fight … & I once seen a guy hit over the back of the head with a lump of pavement kerbing .

        • Thurgood Jenkins says:

          True, he did talk a lot of trash before that fight.

        • lex walker says:

          lol through the whole season of tuf he was asking for it

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          Everyone knew Bisping had that H-BOMB coming for 6 months but waht alot of fans forget is that awesome followup bomb that landed flush after Bispings eyes were already rolled in back head and then we got to see his body QUIVER and his toes curled back. that my friends was the best moment in all MMA history. Speaking of Rich Franklin (back at 185) Any bets the UFC protects Bisping from Franklin just like they have protected him from Vitor and Palharis

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          Problem is Bisping needs to be taught some respect again but UFC will make damn sure that doesn’t happen

      • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

        Who is the “GREAT” strikers Bisping has fought that you speak of ? Wandy who is washed up and still put a beating on Bisping. Can you imagine what would ahve happen to Bisping if he had fought Wandy is his prime back in Pride when eh use to fight anyone at any weight? When ‘s last time we saw Bisping fight heavyweights that outweighed him by 40-50 pounds? NEVER. bisping is a natural lightheavyweight but after taking a beating by Hamill Bisping took flight to 185 cause he couldn’t beat Hamill or rashad.

    • Bla DeBla says:

      I once won the egg + spoon race on a school sports day when I was a kid , doesnt mean I’d beat Usain Bolt in a race now I’m all grown up tho .

  5. ya herd says:

    do i think this is a harder fight than munoz? no. but everything else bisping said i agree with munoz does have good ground and pound does have good power but his stand up is sloppy and his cardio isnt the best and has been knocked out before and nearly got knocked out by chris leben witch bisping beat 3 years ago and leben didnt even touch bispiing once in that fight yea munoz is a realy good but he isnt what i call a fighter hes a wrestler with power thats all realy, oh yea and that guy mia nearly beat munoz aswel and bisping would destroy mia, i dont know who would win between munoz and bisping but it would be good fight on paper bisping has more tools to play with but with this gay stupid scoring system 2 takedowns against 30 punches to the face them 2 takedowns will win the round 9/10 even if they only take you down for 5 seconds and do nothing thiss sucks the is the reason there is alot of boring fights in the ufc nobody wants to lose because u can get cut with some loses, this means fighters dont let there striking go all out because they aare worried to much about the takedown because of the big scoring points u will get from it the scoring system sucks we need a new one sort it out ufc its making the sport so boring. when people hear about a mma fight what does every body want to see every element not stalling ontop of a fighter like a bitch, yea wrestling is a big part of that i dont hate wrestling it just sucks they way it is scored and personaly i think its like that because the ufc is american, and they just want to give the edge on there fightsers because they all do wrestling in school

  6. Jeff J. says:

    Munoz has a weak chin? He has only been ko’d once and that was at 205 due to head kick that would have ko’d anybody. That’s like saying bisping has a weak chin because he got ko’d by hendo. Munoz would wreck bisping.

    • Bla DeBla says:

      He has been severely wobbled by non striking experts like Maia .

      Ya cant learn punch resistance .

      Bisping is a striking expert , its his bread n butter , I’d expect him to finish Munoz if he had him on the run like Maia had .

      That said its too tough a fight to call .

      • Jesie says:

        dude Munoz in not a lay and pray fighter. he take you down and GNP,dropping bombs.what the hell are you talking about?

        • Twatty Mc.Twatface says:

          the best wrestlers in the ufc cant keep bisping down. they all say how they are shocked by his resilience.
          bisping pisses me of but you cant deny his tallent.
          theres nothing that impresses me about munos tbh

          getting sparked out by hendo tought bisping a lesson and that was some time ago. things are different now and btw that overhad that hendo throws can knock out anyone. absolutely anyone

        • Thurgood Jenkins says:

          Except Chuck Norris

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          Munoz would more than wreck Bisping why in hell do you think UFC won’t make the fight? HELLLLLLOOOO fro that exact reason. No more matchups for Bisping with any fighters with power. We will never see bisping in cage against the TRUE Middleweight power houses like Vitor, Palharis, Weidman, Munoz, Franklin. mark my words UFC will have all these guys i mentioned fight each other while Bisping will get a pass as (USUAL) we will see Bisping get another mayham miller caliber, or Dan Miller, or Rivera and then the UFC will say he’s the top contender without fighting any of the TRUE top contenders.

        • Turkeykneck fun chav says:

          hahaha getridoffitch, you talk utter shit mate.
          the fact that boesch has power and alot of it has completely lost you.
          no one other than hendo has knocked him out.

  7. repairman jack says:

    vintage bisping :) think this statement about munoz is a little tongue in cheek im sure he really knows how dangerous munoz really is

    • Bla DeBla says:

      All fighters in the UFC are dangerous .

      Bisping is saying it as he sees it from an opponents POV .

      Like it or not theres no Chicken Shit in Bisping , he will stand & fight anyone anytime & doesn’t back down … maybe its the “British Bulldog” fighting spirit in him ?

      Bisping is a live wire .

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Turkeyneck fun chav first of all I aint you “mate” faggot. Bisping is a compete friggen tool who is overrrated by leaps and bounds. UFC protects him with very favorable matchups since Hendo KO ie: the KO heard around the world which by way took at least 10 years off Bispings life for sure. Munoz, Vitor, Palharis, Belcher, Weidman would all beat Bisping ass but because he is protected we will never see any of thoise fights. As far as Boetch having power it won’t matter because Bisping will get on his horse and run away like eh always does and he will pitter patter his way to a boring ass decsion where he never engaged the entire fight. mark my words Bisping will not go anywhere enar Boetch for more than asplit second. Bisping is a boring as point fighter who uses the bullshit rules to eeeeeeeeeeeek out boring ass decsions much like GSP does. What do both Bisping and GSP have in common? They are both afraid to engage

  8. maurice says:

    bisping is 100 percent correct. munoz is so overrated it isnt even funny. the guy had big problems on the feet with maia, grove etc. remember the hammill/munoz fight? lol. his wrestling credentials are outstanding, but ive never been impressed with his mma wrestling. the only thing munoz does good is ground and pound. bisping would pick munoz apart on the feet and if he was taken down he wouldnt be down there long. i HATE TO SAY IT, but boetsch is a tougher fight for bisping. but i hate boetsch more then munoz. lol.

  9. danielrchargers says:

    i kind of wanted to see Boetch vs Munoz… either way im glad were talking about Boetch. he works hard. you could tell, had a full tank after KO okami. and he was getting Bitched. oh and when ppl say lucky strikes…. Okami was Knocked Out, all that matters.

    • t says:

      +1 i think it will be a tough fight for both and while no way munoz is not as tough as boestch tourgh i would have rather seen bisping vs okami and munoz vs boetsch

  10. Jb says:

    Bisbing is a decision king. Terrible fighter. And yes you nut huggers can say this or that. Don’t worry fairies he will be exposed soon. Hopefully by silva. Pillow hands bisbing and his hooker wife/:

    • Twatty Mc.Twatface says:

      52% of bispings wins are by way of knockout or tko
      10% submission
      38% decision
      that would tell me that hes got a majority finishing record
      of his recent decisions they have been to sonnen (who even AS had a hard time)
      sexyama, miller and wanderlei. All of which have been exciting non stop fights with pressure.

      im not sure what pipe you smoking but if its leaving you that deluded i would like some. seems interesting

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      come on man EX hooker, dana white supports her now

  11. toneloc24 says:

    I used to hate bisping but I kinda like him now after I saw the UFC on fox prefight Presser (check it out if u havent seen it bisping was on a roll and nobody said anything to him) where he was calling everybody out that was up there with him. Also he up a good fight with chael that I think he deserved to win (I hate chael so I’m probably a lil biased).

    • Mike says:

      I dislike Bisping, and am indifferent about Chael, and I still gave the fight to Bisping. Though it was close. Gained some respect for Bisping that fight.

  12. Dick Diaz says:

    munoz is the bigger name and harder fight…

  13. Bla DeBla says:

    Theres something about Bisping & I’m not quite sure what it is but whatever it is even when he says something you agree with & believe in ya still dislike him !

    Maybe its the English Cuntishness in him ?

    • Thurgood Jenkins says:

      I really liked him on TUF and was still a fan his first few fights in the UFC. Then, I don’t remember when, I really started to dislike him. But I’m starting to come around again. Yea he’s cocky. Yea a lot of people can’t stand him. But as much as fans seem to rag on him, there’s no denying he’s got a deep set of skills. You’re right though. Even when he’s being sincere and humble, it still comes across as arrogant for some reason.

      • Bla DeBla says:

        Thing I liked about Bisping on TUF was the fact that he treated the deaf guy Hamill like an equal & wouldnt allow him to act up because of his disability .

        That took balls because everyone else was making allowances for Hammil & Hammil was taking the piss knowing at some time or another he was going to have to fight them & so already gained a psychological edge on them .

        Bisping is razor sharp like that .

        I think its an English thing because one time a few years ago I was in London & this big monster “Cockney” was drinking at a bar I was in , he just entered the bar , parked up his car out front & popped in for a quick pint & to see his palls … but while he was there some blind guy took offense at where he had parked his car & was ripping the windshield wipers off it & going crazy .

        There was no major drama other than the big Monster Cockney went out to the street , treated the blind guy as an equal & told him in no uncertain terms that if he touched his car one more time he wouldnt just be blind , he would be blind with both his own arms shoved right up his ass!

        That was the end of that !

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          I suppose you are the only other person in world (other than Bisping) that thinks Bisping didn’t get his as kicked by hamill. that fight was a blowout. go watch it again and you will see it was an eay fight to score Hamill 30-27 as Bisping was beat to rat shit and Hamill looked as fresh as before fight started. Dana white says he still to this day gets more shit about the Bisping hamill decsion more than any other fight. he gets accused of fixing that fight all the time. i think the corrupt judges just wanted to get the hell out of Britain alive. Everyone has seen how Brits act when their soccer teams lose. they have no problem rioting and stomping 10 people to death just for their teams getting beat

        • Bla DeBla says:

          I have no love of Britain or the British but it was a close enough fight to give a “Home Town Decision” .

          You dont like the reality of Combat sports dont cry to me , go cry to yer fellow Prison Queers who fantasize about violence while sucking each other off .

  14. true mma says:

    Bisbing your a fucking idiot. Munoz would have knocked your ass out worse than hendo did. Be real, your glad your not fighting Munoz because unlike chael, munoz would have held you down and laid some donkey Kong punches on your stupid ass.

  15. Cody Douglas says:

    NO! Munoz Is the Harder fight and Thats Exactly Why they Didnt have him Fight bisping!! they (the ufc) Cant have There over Seas marketing chip Lose 2 in a ROW! HA

  16. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    I find Bisping very funny. I hope no one takes this statement seriously. He’s the UK’s version of Chael Sonnen before there was a Chael Sonnen. Munoz has great wrestling, a solid chin and KO power. He would whoop the both of them.

  17. Nick says:

    I’ve given Bisping the benefit of the doubt so many times, he’s just a douche. Like I don’t know what it is with him. I’ve tried to like him, but he just makes himself the asshole.

  18. Warryor says:

    Munoz is 100% better than bisping, and bisping is telling he is not impress with munoz mma game because he knows that he don’t have chance to win with Munoz, if bisping is lose to chael by wrestling then bisping will lose Munoz by ground and pound with a big big punch,bisping is no way for Munoz, same like how manny pacquiao KO hatton OK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Twatty Mc.Twatface says:

      people said that about the sonnen fight before it happened. then shock horror its the same story. people cant take him down

      keep singing the same story and blindly hate cos you dont like his country.

  19. ya herd says:

    just like me and bisping tag teaming your mama

  20. Koshchek Loves Gay Porn says:

    Check out what @RondaRousey just said

  21. DMAC says:

    Gotta love the fighters that aren’t afraid to talk shit. And I to think Munoz isn’t what he’s talked up to be. Although I would love to see bisping vs Munoz I can respect TB speaking up and getting himself another top tier opponent.

  22. true mma says:

    Count your blessings bisbing because munoz will fuck you up.

  23. ricci says:

    after a loss to sonnen, bisping is just looking to pick a fight with an easier fighter, that’s all.

    not saying that he would lose to mark munoz, but there’s definitely a chance of him losing that bout unlike a fight with beotsch, who really doesnt pose much threat.

    he’s just lucky that beotsch got lucky and won his last fight, and now it is appropriate for him to call out beotsch for an easy match for bisping.

  24. Mc says:

    Has anyone ever really been impressed w/ Munoz? He’s heavy handed but sucks at striking. He got handed a win over Mia who in one training camp improved his striking to a level way beyond Munozs. Don’t get me wrong Munoz seems like a cool guy I just don’t think he’s all that great and was shocked when he was brought up as a top mw cuz he really isn’t. Bisping would beat him pretty easy I’d say. Boetsch is more well rounded than Munoz. Bisping is prob right in saying what he did.

  25. jeremy beadle says:

    Oh my days, u muppets were all saying the same shit before the miller and sonnen fights! Bisping is class, get over it. Man, you faggy yanks are always gonna hate because in most (not all) cases, you still got a bug up your arses about the fact you were our bitches way back when! Build a fuckin bridge already, Jesus.
