So former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman thinks that Bisping is “the easiest title fight in the history of title fights”. Wow, that’s harsh man. Current champ Luke Rockhold has faced, who he calls an “idiot” in Chris Weidman at UFC 194 in Dec. 2015 where he defeated him via KO, and then he submitted Bisping the year before that down under in Australia. Check out what he said about “The Count” and the what the “All American” said.
I think [Weidman] might have been easier, in my opinion. Bisping is just a little bit funner. It’s more tactical. I’m gonna enjoy it more. It’s gonna be funner for the fans. Weidman kind of fights ugly and fights with his balls. Comes forward and might get a little sloppy. I’d pick him off fairly early. I think he overextends. It excites me more. It’s gonna be fun for me. It’s gonna be fun for the fans. I like tactical battles. I like outsmarting him. I like adjusting and making my points. Weidman just kind of fights like an idiot. He just fucking runs forward and exposes himself and kind of overcommits and relies on his toughness. Bisping tries to make it more tactical and I enjoy that, that process of finding my shots and outdoing him, outsmarting him in the cage and putting him away.
Chris Weidman was forced to withdraw from a return bout with Rockhold at UFC 199 and this opened the door for Michael Bisping to finally get his long awaited title shot.
