Michael Bisping on Paul Daley: “It was one of the stupidest things that I had ever seen”

TUF 3 winner, Michael “The Count” Bisping has weight in on the actions of Paul Daley at last Saturday’s UFC 113 event in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Bisping, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“What can I say? It was one of the stupidest things that I had ever seen. Paul’s a very talented young man, he’s got a bright future ahead of him and he was getting his UFC career off to a fantastic start and it’s a shame to see a few seconds of madness ruin such a great potential career. But this is a professional sport and we’re professional sportsman, you can’t act like that.”

“I, myself, have done years and years of interviews and things like that, talking about how we’re not thugs, we’re professional athletes, we’re martial artists. Behavior like that just plays into stereotypes. It’s just a bit of a shame, really.”

“I’m not saying I agree with letting him go, no. To be honest, I was a little shocked when I heard that the UFC were cutting him completely. I thought, maybe, he might be relegated to the undercard, but I’m sure they have their reasons. You know, I try to stay out of it and I just focus on my fight and my career, you know? Who knows? Maybe we’ll see him back one day. I hope so. I’ve known Paul for a while. He’s a nice guy. He just made a silly mistake.”
