Michael Bisping discusses Paddy Pimblett

Michael Bisping, alongside UFC light heavyweight Anthony Smith, explained his point of view on his podcast. Bisping said:

“I think what Paddy needs to do is just humble himself a little bit. Stop with this I’m the new cash cow sh*t.  When I asked him who would he want to fight next [he said] ‘I don’t need to say anyone’s name because I am the man. I’m the boy, I’m the cash cow.’ You’re yet to fight someone ranked! When you’re dominating people that’s all well and good. [But] when you’re scraping by a victory it doesn’t have the same effect and it starts to rub people off the wrong way.”

The 43-year-old ‘The Count’ continued:

“The way he handled it afterward wasn’t the best.  I can’t talk sh*t because I did a similar thing myself, back in the day. I’ve literally been in that position fifteen years ago. You’re young, you get a lot of attention, and maybe a bit of it goes to your head … It doesn’t matter how big you get because the court of public opinion will bring you back down to earth pretty f*cking quick, and that’s what he experienced.”
