UFC NEWS – "I'm not on the anti-Bisping bandwagon,” says Sonnen

“I’m not on the anti-Bisping bandwagon. I never have been. I think he’s good. I hear a lot of negative things said about him, but I think most of it comes from frustration of maybe his personality or something like that. I think if you’re real objective and you look at his skill set and his in-ring ability, you’ll know that he’s a talented guy. He’s definitely cocky and arrogant, which is two qualities that I like in a person. I like a cocky guy and I like an arrogant guy, so he earns points with me in those regards, but I think it turns a lot of people off … I’ve never even seen Bisping in trouble. I’ve never seen him come out of there cut and scraped and bruised. He seems to go in, take care of business and go home.”

In a recent interview with USA Today, UFC middleweight contender, Chael Sonnen shares his reactions to his last minute opponent change for the upcoming UFC on FOX 2 event.

Originally scheduled to face Mark Munoz next week, Sonnen will now step in the cage against Michael Bisping after Munoz was forced to withdraw due to injury.

Many fans have been anxiously anticipating a Bisping vs. Sonnen matchup, not because of the fight itself but because of the pre-fight hype/trash talk. With both being epic trash talkers many thought the two would trade verbal insults until ones hand is raised inside the cage.

That however does not seem to be the case, they both seem to like each other and with just 10 days left until fight night, this last minute matchup doesn’t have much time to build a heated rivalry.
