Bisping still thinks he beat Wanderlei and wants a rematch

You may remember a moment in 2009 when Dan Henderson pulled his arm back, ducked his head, then launched a nuclear-tipped 4oz glove across the octagon directly into Michael Bisping’s face, throwing his consciousness into the metaphysical unknown. We received unconfirmed reports that Bisping’s mouthpiece landed on one of the blackjack tables at the neighboring Bellagio and that the pit-bosses just threw it away. That night, Hendo fed Bisping a delicious slice of ‘humble pie’ on behalf of Damarques Johnson and entire USA TUF team. Since then, “The Count” has gone on to stop Dennis Kang and lose a unanimous decision to a man that looks a lot like Baraka from Mortal Kombat. It seems those hearty helpings of humility never fully digested as Bisping refuses to admit defeat and is calling for a rematch with ‘The Axe Murder’.

“The only reason I am bringing up a rematch with Wanderlei is because he has been bringing it up in interviews. And if he thinks in his heart of hearts he won the fight, why on earth does he want a rematch? I think deep down he knows – and I respect him for that – I won the fight and so he wants a rematch.”

After collecting a series of overhand rights from two of the greatest fighters to ever compete in Pride FC, Bisping is still bewildered by the concept of admitting defeat. I was the same way during the 2004 and 2007 World Series, which I still try to pretend never happened… Bisping faces an eager Dan Miller as the co-main event of UFC 114 this weekend. Both fighters would love the honor of serving the other with walking papers from the UFC. As for the main event, well, regardless of who wins, humble pie will be served. [Source]
