The tension between Wanderlei Silva and Michael Bisping was the highlight of Thursday’s UFC 110 press conference in Australia. Bisping complained that Silva had not been showing him the respect he deserves, so he planned to take that respect from him in their fight. The two bickered back and forth throughout the meeting.

At one point, Silva was asked by a reporter why he didn’t like Bisping. “Thank you for asking that,” said Bisping. Silva answered, “Nothing. I don’t know. Everybody tell me kick him. It’s not just me. Nobody like him.”

Bisping responded, “Fortunately, I couldn’t give a fuck.”
