Currently one of the top contenders for the UFC Heavyweight title, Michael “The Count” Bisping, once again spoke about his negative feelings towards this weekend’s opponent – Vitor Belfort.
Bisping accused Belfort of hypocrisy, claiming that the Brazilian legend is using double standards in everything related to performance enhancing drugs and testosterone-boosting products. According to Bisping, Belfort’s recent comments about TRT indicate that “he’s on it”:
“With that said, I’m still expecting them to boo me on Saturday night. But a lot of people are saying to me, ‘F— Vitor! Kill that motherf—er!’ Seriously, I’ve got it on video of them chanting it at the mall yesterday. But yeah, I’m still expecting to get booed, of course.” – MMAjunkie.com
The Count is currently 23-4 in his MMA career, losing only to Chael Sonnen, Dan Henderson, Rashad Evans and Wanderlei Silva inside the Octagon. UFC President Dana White stated on numerous occasions that if Bisping leaves the Octagon victorious on Saturday night, he will finally reach his goal of challenging Anderson Silva for the undisputed UFC Middleweight title.
Bisping seems up to the occasion. Talking about his prediction for the fight, The Brit expects it to go to distance, but still wants a one-punch KO that he’s been craving for since his first fight inside the Octagon:
“As fights go on, I generally get stronger, even in sparring. Don’t get me wrong, though. I can finish this guy in the first round as well. I know I haven’t had the one-punch knockouts or whatever in the UFC. I’ve had plenty in my career before the UFC, but I had them before the UFC. So who knows, you could see that Saturday night. But if I were to predict? Third- or fourth-round TKO.”
