“Bisping is a really tough guy. He has been in the top 10 for years. I’m really prepared. There’s no such thing as pillow hands or whatever people want to call him. He is dangerous and versatile, he can punch and he can kick. I respect all my opponents. And you also can’t think his Jiu-Jitsu is white belt level, because he has been training for a long time, he’s a brown belt. I have respect for him, but I’m prepared to give my best and walk out victorious.”
That’s what UFC middleweight Thales Leites had to say about his upcoming opponent Michael Bisping.
He told Portal do Vale Tudo that he doesn’t buy into all the talk about Bisping not having punching power and considers him a dangerous opponent.
