Michael Bisping excited to shut Rivera up once and for all and highlight just how far out of his league he is…

UFC middleweight contender, Michael Bisping has been firing back as of late towards his upcoming opponent “journeyman”, Jorge Rivera this weekend at UFC 127, explaining he’s excited to show up “El Conquistador” once and for all.

Bisping, speaking via MENmedia.co.uk, said:

“I’m excited to now be given the chance to shut Rivera up once and for all and highlight just how far out of his league he is … He’s a 38-year-old journeyman that has been around forever and never been the champion. That is the reality of the situation. If I have any desire to win the middleweight belt, I need to be running through someone like Rivera and beating him in style. He’s tough, experienced and I respect his longevity and pride, but I need to be beating guys like this.”

“I’ve looked at Rivera’s punching style and it’s not all that really. He kind of swings away and thumps, rather than punch straight and accurately. It just looks like he’s trying to give the other guy a dead arm at times … The aim is to make Rivera feel out of depth and then silence him. When a man talks as much rubbish as Rivera, there is no greater pleasure.”
