Michael Bisping attempts to dispel our SMRM while looking as stylish as possible

Michael Bisping attempts to dispel our SMRM while looking as stylish as possible

Let's make this abundantly clear. We have no negative agenda towards Michael Bisping. In fact, at MiddleEasy we sort of like that guy. What other website would tell you to start your Friday mornings off with the smooth sounds of DJ Michael Bisping?

However, in our most recent Sunday Morning Rumor Mill we published an item that stated Michael Bisping visited Wild Card gym to work on his stand-up. After disrespecting his sparring partner and the entire gym, a coach told a professional boxer to enter the ring with him and eventually knocked him out to teach Bisping a lesson. Folks, if this wasn't from a reliable source then we would have never placed it in our SMRM. People have been telling us that Bisping recently had a surgery -- and we already know this. Both of those events are mutually exclusive, they're simply not dependent on each other. This rumored incident happened before Bisping needed surgery.

Since the article was published, Bisping seemed to question the source of the rumor more than MiddleEasy, which is curious in itself. From what I understand the guy even appeared on the Jason Ellis show on SiriusXM to refute it.

We know the source of our rumor is a strong one, and we just can't imagine a scenario in which this person would fabricate anything.

Let me just sum up the reaction from the entire MMA community. We stop doing the SMRM and all of you complain that you want it back up. We put the SMRM back up and all of you complain that it's filled with rumors. You guys are more psychotic than Dexter.

Nevertheless, one must look at Bisping's floral shirt in all of its glory as he addresses us and states he was never knocked out in sparring.

Don't listen to that obnoxious object above me. I'm as weak as glass since ol Hendo introduced me to righty

His face looks like someone clocked him with a right. Maybe it's the angle, but the left side of his face looks a bit swollen as well as the small cuts healing. Either way fuck Bisping, Mark Munoz is going to destroy him..

As if these weren't obligatory by now...

Go back to making your "deep house" mixes, DJ.

It seems the whole concept of the SMRM is too hard for some people to understand.

Floral shirt from a movie he's shooting. Not from his personal collection. Very cute article though fellas. Wasn't knocked out either.... double check your sources.

I fucking hate MMA Elite. Bisping is a cool dude and I don't doubt his side of things....But MMA Elite can take a dive into a bag of dicks.

It's a rumor that was heard by many people not just M.E and it wasn't started by M.E either, & nice shout out M.E should get a good amount of new followers I think he has a lot of twitter followers.

A-hole, don't be a retard! LOL!

LOL! UG is shitting all over ME for posting this fake rumor.

HeyZues, No one is complaining that there are rumors on a rumor mill. its the quality of the rumors. or the lack of details to give rumors any juice. read my comment i post on it if it made any sense to you.

Now tell us what that douchenozzle Bjork did without saying any actual names....u scared of his lawyers or something? u was the weakest rumor that day.

if i knew what you looked like i would smack you over your head, maybe not you but gayzie at least
+2 # KickDouble 2013-07-17 12:29
If you knew what Zeus looked like, you would definitely not smack him over the head...

Also, if ME exposed their sources, people wouldn't speak so freely around them... They trust Z & co. to keep their identity hidden, which is why they have no problem telling them 'inside info'! Exposing sources = death of the SMRM.

I was referring to how bellator treats its employees....I didnt need names. i needed the actions bellawhores pulled on the fighters.

If they are screwing a fighter in a certain, you know they doing same thing to every one of them. No huge risk in exposing the act in question.

My beef is that one single crappy rumor regarding bellator pulling shit on fighters and no meat to it. AT ALL. Zues is a fucking tease.

Zues, if you ever get smacked in the head and no one was there, just assume it was me

SMRM is awesome, don't ever stop. Bisping is a douche and i am happy to hear of him getting knocked out anytime.

I still hate the new layout, but I come here anyway because the crew here keeps the fun in MMA.

More wu-tang please.
