Cyrille Diabate on Michael Bisping: “lets just say we don’t like each”

French light heavyweight, Cyrille Diabate is not surprised by the actions of British fighter, Michael Bisping last month following his UFC 127 bout with Jorge Rivera, explaining he’d had run-ins with “The Count” years before which left a bad taste in his mouth as well.

“The Snake”, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“I’m not surprised at all. I’ve had problems with Bisping a few times. He’s a character. He’s very explosive. He tends to act and think after. His actions weren’t a surprise to me as he’s the type of guy that does that shit and then regrets it or tries to apologies after.”

“But his actions have gone by already and he’s hurt peoples feelings and he’s shown the public the bad side of the sport. Not even of the sport, but of fighters themselves. We don’t need that kind of publicity. There are so many people bad mouthing MMA as it is that we don’t need those kind of actions.”

“We fought a couple of years back in a kickboxing match. After I won on points he went on the Internet saying that he knocked me down and that he won that fight so we had a bit of an argument on the internet and then we saw each other a couple of times – lets just say we don’t like each.”
