The mindset of a fighter is an extremely interesting subject. Like any other professional athlete, confidence is a requirement, in fact you sometimes have to be irrational amounts, or else, well, things won’t go your way. Michael Bisping has never been one to lack confidence, especially in the lead up to a fight. “The Count” has always been an example of a fighter who believes in himself no matter who he fights, even if it’s Pride FC legends Dan Henderson and Wanderlei Silva.
Though he lost those two fights, one by vicious H-Bomb, Bisping claims that he could defeat them if given the chance, but he doesn’t stop at those two, he told mmamania.com that he could beat all of the people he lost to…
“I would love to rematch all the guys that have a victory over me. Chael is one of them, Rashad, Henderson, Vitor … I’d love to fight them all. I’d love to get another crack. After every loss I’ve gone back to the drawing board, so to speak, figured out what went wrong, and I’ve come back as a better fighter. Dan Henderson? I know I’d definitely take care of him. Chael? I beat him the first time, but I’d make it even more unanimous in the second. Vitor? I was doing very well until I got caught with a head kick, so I’ve adjusted for that as well. I believe I could beat everyone that has beaten me up until now. They beat me on the night, so fair play to them, but I would love a rematch with any of those guys.”
Can’t hate the guy for believing in himself, but it doesn’t mean I don’t disagree. Oh well, I just hope he doesn’t lash out at Middle Easy over this disagreement. Please, Mike, no twitter rematch.
