Since it was announced last month that Michael Bisping and Anderson Silva would be fighting in the main event of UFC Fight Night London on February 27th, there’s been a bit of back and forth banter between the two, mostly started by Bisping.
First Bisping took to Twitter to tell Silva to leave the viagra out of this training camp, and obvious jab at Silva’s failed drug test after his UFC 183 fight against Nick Diaz.
Now, Bisping revealed to Sherdog that he saw holes in Silva’s game when ‘The Spider’ fought Diaz.
“Against Nick Diaz, I thought he looked very beatable. He had some moments in the Diaz fight where he looked explosive, he looked fast and he looked sharp. But when I watch that fight I see a very beatable fighter. I don’t necessarily see that he’s slowed down; I always thought I could beat him.”
“I’m just going to utilize a lot of movement, fight my fight and take it to him. A lot of people when they fought Anderson, they were scared of him. They were beaten mentally before the fight started and you could see that in their performances. Diaz wasn’t scared of him at all and you could see that it threw Anderson off. You’ll see the same in this [fight]. I’m gonna give him the respect he deserves, but I’m not gonna be shy; I’m not gonna cower away from this guy. I signed this contract to fight this guy, to beat him, to knock him out and end his career.”
