  1. Jb says:

    Way to be a pussey mma elite. You must have went to the same business school as Dana. #someonestandtheirground

    • Stevo the great says:

      Right! Talk about back pedaling. Bisping is gonna lose……by mauling just like Brian Stann. 1st or 2nd round sub.

      • Mike McMack says:

        I don’t think Bisping gets finished, his Jiu Jitsu is pretty good. I think it ends by UD for Sonnen. I do hope you end up being right because Bisping tapping would be great.

  2. Joe Rogan says:

    I guess what gets me is, he flipped off some people. So fucking what? This is MMA. It’s brutal fighting. You are an MMA sponsor not fucking childrens orginization. You can’t hold these guys to the same bogus standards as professional football or basketball players. Look at Mike Tyson in his day saying he wanted to eat someones kids and all types of looney shit but I bet he didn’t lose any sponsors. You can’t expect a Tiger to act like a house cat is all I’m saying.

  3. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Nick Diaz is Bisping’s persona coach.

  4. roberts says:

    who cares

  5. Thatguy says:

    Lawyers, they call you and say “hey, remember what the contract states” and people turn into pussies.

  6. gil says:

    gun jumpers lol

  7. holleaufradern says:

    Bisbing embracing this persona will take his career further than if he tried to win new fans… Ive been a fa since tuf3 and this makes me like him more 4sure

  8. mmaelite says:

    MMA Elite – a second rate company. way to puss out and backpeddle after taking what was a noble stand against that idiot Bisping.

  9. spiritsplice says:

    Idiots. Like people are going to boycott your product because you sponsor a particular person. Everybody is way too worried about meaningless shit, possibly offending 3 people, who cares. If anything, I will not buy from these dummies because they seem to have a problem with free expression ( much like Dana….unless your name is Chael of course ).

  10. stix says:

    that timeline of twitter posts is hilarious.

    it goes from “bisping is gone! never again” to “omg I <3 bisping soooo much" pretty quick.

    the guys who have an mma clothing line don't know about personas?

    I'm not even a bisping fan but cutting someone's sponsorship cause they half-jokingly flicked off the crowd is stupid as shit

  11. lex walker says:

    how dumb you take his sponsorship away b/c he flicked people off who tha fucc cares

    • Matt says:

      If it was NFL or some other sport, it would matter. UFC and mma is different and this is common. I don’t think it’s right, but this is expected with certain fighters.
