"A fight is a fight. Chael is good, Bisping is good, but a fight is a fight. I don't like this (Sonnen vs. Bisping) fight. Bisping did a good job, but Chael talks too much - no working. Michael Bisping is good, he did a good job. But, Chael? Chael needs to train. No more talk - just train. Go to Brazil? Big problem. I don't like to talk too much about Chael. He's no great athlete. This is bad for the UFC, this is not good for the UFC."
