Michael Bisping on Jorge Rivera: “He’s not being professional. He’s just being a prick.”

UFC middleweight contender, Michael Bisping once again gives his thoughts on his opponent at UFC 127, veteran, Jorge Rivera, who he faces in Sydney, Australia, on February 27th, adding he took the fight just to shut “El Conquistador” up after all the shit talking over the past few weeks.

Bisping, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“I had to take the fight just to shut him up. He’s acting like an asshole, and nothing but an asshole. He’s not being professional. He’s just being a prick.”

“They’re all just jumping on the bandwagon that it’s cool to hate Bisping. I don’t give anyone any shit. I live in a tiny town in the northwest of England. I don’t bump into anyone. I’m not going around to all the fights and bigwigging it and going to parties and getting in everyone’s face and talking shit.”

“I didn’t want to take the fight because I feel he’s beneath me. But I have to take the fight now and teach him a lesson. People say I talk a lot of trash and talk a lot of shit, and I disagree. I tend to keep it respectful for the most part until people start attacking me and talking shit about me. Obviously, I’m going to respond to that. I’ll do my talking in the cage. Well, I probably won’t. I’ll probably talk shit for the next eight weeks.”
