Madison Square Garden (eventually)
New York City, New York State, USA
Michael Bisping, a man who has defended his belt once, against the 500 year old Dan Henderson, in a fight he came surprisingly close to losing, claims that Georges St. Pierre’s run at welterweight wasn’t that impressive.
On the most recent media call, Bisping went off on St. Pierre, saying:
He’s fought a lot of the same people over that period. He’s fought them multiple times. And if you go through the opponents. I mean, BJ Penn, who he fought twice or three times, he’s a featherweight, right? Johny Hendricks, I mean look at Johny Hendricks these days. But still. Nick Diaz is a welterweight. Carlos Condit, oh, that’s a good win. Josh Koscheck, Dan Hardy, Thiago Alves — lightweight. BJ Penn — featherweight. Matt Serra — lightweight. These are all smaller guys.
For those who like to fact check statements that are clearly made to hype fights and nothing more…
- Koscheck is a lightweight?
- Alves tried to make 155 but failed (he did do it really early in his career but c’mon…).
- Who points to Matt Serra as a big win for GSP?
- BJ Penn is a GOAT – but, personally, I never saw GSP’s win there as super impressive, so I’ll give him that one.
- Hendricks is a big dude and great.
- Jon Fitch – big and awesome
- Matt Hughes – big and awesome
- Jake Shields – big and
gay awesomevery good
- Frank Trigg – big and
shows off his cock a lotvery good for his day
Why no mention of Sean Sherk, be tee dubs? I always felt that one was overblown.
Let’s continue with inch filling content:
He always had that strength and size advantage. Now, he’ll probably be stronger than me in this fight, I don’t doubt it. Because he lifts a lot of weights and he’s doing his amino acids every morning and this and that. He’s a real athlete. But I’m a bigger natural guy and he’s not gonna have that advantage. So yeah, he’s great and he’s beaten a lot of competition. But he’s had competition that has been suited toward him size-wise and skill-wise. This is a different matter.
He’s going to be stronger but won’t have an advantage because you’re bigger? Don’t get me wrong, that might be true, but what you’re really arguing is that you’ll have a cardio edge because St. Pierre won’t be used to carrying around all that muscle, nor is he familiar with moving so much mass. There, I did the argument for you, Mikey. You’re welcome.
He’s still gonna be the smallest little sh*t that I’ve ever faced.
You fought Jason Miller and looked like shit, whereas when St. Pierre faced Mayhem, he looked like a scary beast man. And Dan Miller has also been at 170. And … why am I still doing this? We know he’s hyping shit, so let him hype. Man, I feel like a sucker for falling for that trap. Makes me wonder how dumb you feel for falling for me falling for it? I bet: very.
