All Big Nog fans should be on suicide watch for the next 48 hours. Last night, three Pride legends entered the cage and two brought the violence straight to your television like some gangster rap video from the early 90s. Cro Cop ventilated Anthony Perosh’s face with a well placed elbow that had Perosh’s bodily fluids leaking like some giant blister. Wanderlei threw more combinations than a bicycle lock towards Michael Bisping which not only rocked him in third round, but gained Wanderlei his first victory since 2008 against Keith Jardine. At last night’s post-fight press conference, Michael Bisping made it abundantly clear that he thought the won the fight.
“I don’t know. It was a close fight. Personally, I think I won rounds one and two… I mean, Wanderlei did a great job. Congratulations to him. Full credit to him on winning the fight.
“Personally, apart from the guillotine – and I got dropped in the third round – but apart from the guillotine attempt off the takedown in the second round, as far as round two, I really didn’t have any offense come my way. I felt I clearly won those two rounds.”
“I’m a little annoyed, you know? I don’t come here to put on a good performance. I come here to win. Winning is what’s important… I lost tonight. I’m pissed off about that. I don’t train this hard to get losses. But I want to get in there ASAP and fight another good name and get back to winning ways.”
If Michael Bisping thinks he won the fight last night, then I’m pretty sure Matt Hamill is somewhere out there trying to convince the athletic commission that he beat Bisping at UFC 75. [Source]
