Michael Bisping blasts Alan Belcher, Tim Boetsch for UFC 155 losses

Okami v BelcherLeading up to UFC 155 there was a logjam at the top of the middleweight division and two contenders competing on the December 29 card. However, as chance would have it, both Alan Belcher and Tim Boetsch came up short in their scraps and were subsequently bumped out of title-contention.

Though both match-ups were mediocre at best from an entertainment perspective, one man who got a ton of enjoyment out of each was Michael Bisping. “The Count” is expected to get a crack at champion Anderson Silva if he beats Vitor Belfort in a few weeks at UFC on FX 7 and had taken criticism from both Boetsch and Belcher regarding the opportunity.

“I’d like to say I’m looking forward to these two simpletons keeping their pie holes shut about me for a little while. Those two have been calling me out and talking crap for months, and I would have got some real enjoyment beating them in the Octagon but two no-marks took that glory,” wrote Bisping in a blog for Yahoo Sports after feigning compassion for the pain of defeat.

“Belcher lost every minute of every round in a fight so boring I was afraid my brain was going to melt and start to dribble out of my ears. It was like someone detonated a nuclear bomb of boredom in the arena – everyone in the seats around me was playing Angry Birds,” the brash Brit continued. “What delusions of grandeur Belcher has. This is a guy who didn’t fight for a year after giving himself career-threatening eye-strain by watching too much internet porn, and he thinks he’s god’s gift to MMA. He even told UFC President Dana White that after he beat Okami, he’d fight me on January 19 if something happens to Belfort. This is a guy who got his arse kicked by two guys I smashed (Yoshihiro Akiyama and Jason Day) but he thinks he can not only beat me on a couple weeks’ training, but also assumed he was getting passed Okami, who is not to be underestimated.”

“Anyway, now we don’t have to listen to this guy anymore. Back to the undercard, sunshine,” exclaimed Bisping.

Both Belcher/Boetsch were on solid winning streaks before their recent stumbles. Comparably, the 23-4 Bisping is only a single instance of success removed from his last loss but had a slew of victories prior to the controversial outpointing.

    actually quite funny for a change
    i love Belcher and want him to succeed, but that was a shite performance

  • darth_irritable says:

    Bisping is a dick, but he’s generally kind of funny in that UK way.

  • Richard Stabone says:

    Bisping has always been outspoken but he’s really dialed it up a notch lately. He’s had some pretty impressive rants in recent months, taking a page out of Chael’s book. It’s too bad the fight between those two sprang out of nowhere, not allowing time for pre-fight build up and what surely would have been entertaining banter back & forth.

    But the path has definitely been cleared for Bisping to get his elusive title shot, if he can get by Vitor of course.

    And hopefully Weidman is able to return to action sooner than later… maybe Okami or Philippou up next for him?

  • Richard Stabone says:

    Actually Weidman vs. Lombard would be a much sexier matchup.

    If Bisping wins (a big if), have Silva defend his belt against The Count to headline the July 4th card, with Weidman facing Lombard in the co-headliner to determine the next top contender.

  • THEGUNNER says:

    I want bisping to win a get a shot hes earned it plus if vitor wins im sure he wont get the title fight.

  • AlphaOmega says:

    How has he earned it though? He loses every title contention fight he’s been in, he can get on streaks, then they give him a number one contender fight and he folds.

  • RicM says:

    “……….everyone around me was playing Angry Birds……” ya gotta admit, thats some funny shit-talk there……..and I’m not even a Bisping fan……

  • Angry Mike says:

    Bisping may have a point about Belcher’s fight with Akiyama, but I don’t understand the hate for Boetsch. Boetsch hurt (broke?) his right hand, got cut from a head butt, and took a poke in the eye to top it off. Don’t think Michael “The c*nt” Bisping would’ve done any better under the same circumstances.
