“I welcome him standing with me and trading shots. That’s an area where it’s always been one of my best opportunities to win fights. But I don’t think that’s exactly what he is going to do. He’ll use his footwork. He’s not a pocket-puncher-type of guy. He’s a stick-and-move-type of guy… I’m not expecting Michael to go out there and get into a kickboxing match with me. Mike’s going to try to mix it up, and that’s fine with me, too. I’m very excited to surprise him in the other realms of mixed martial arts. I feel he’s underestimating me in my other skills and that’s fine; I’m not going to tell him how good I am, I’m going to show him…”
In a recent discussion with ESPN.com, UFC middleweight fighter Brian Stann made a prediction that Michael Bisping won’t be making this weekend’s main card fight a kickboxing match.
Bisping has shown a decently diverse game with his ability to take most his opponents to the mat, however his bread and butter has always been his fast paced stand up game.
Will Bisping stand and trade or is Stann on to something?Tags: featured, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news
