Michael Bisping drops a weight class

I know it’s been kinda obvious, but I’m in a bad fucking mood today. Is it because I was rolling with the smelliest guy at the gym during last night’s BJJ class and I still reek of him (dispite 3 showers)? Yes, partly. But I’m also pissed that the ‘biggest news’ to come out today in MMA-Land is that Michael Bisping has decided to drop to middleweight.

BIG FUCKING SURPRISE. November called and wants it’s news back.

This is about the most obvious news ever … word was that Joe Silva watched Evans gas and Bisping get pushed around and told them both to take their chubby asses to middleweight. This doesn’t just help those two, it’ll also help the UFC’s shitty MW division, which could use a couple of TUF fighters who aren’t going anywhere fast. Oh wait … that pretty much sums up the MW division’s problem. Never mind!

The move will definitely be better for Bisping than for Evans. All Bisping had waiting for him in the LHW division was a beating from Matt Hamill. No upside if he managed to win, and plenty of downside if he lost. If Evans decides to stick around to lose against Tito again, at least it gives him another high profile fight before he fades into obscurity down the line. Plus, Evans doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who likes cutting weight or diet. Or training hard. Or doing cardio.

    I think Bisping will do well in the MW division…and let’s just hope Matt Hamill follows suit and destroys that limey bastard.

    I’m sick of Bisping and all his shit talking…

    Evans will be the biggest MW anyone has ever seen. Still boring…but big. He would most likely be 205 2 days before the fight and be able to cut, and just BLOW UP before the actual fight.

    Some “news”. Any who, this is good for the MW div. So there’s, what, 4 fighters in there now?

  • JiuJitsu365

    Rashad Evans is one of the best LH out there…..

    and Tito didn’t win that fight….

    this time next year we will all be talking about whos gonna be fed to anderson silva next

  • Fightlinker Jackal

    I wish Hamill would hunt him down into MW.

  • Lifer

    the smelly guy is the worst.

  • Xavier

    Bisping is just ducking Hamill. What a fucker.

  • Michaelthebox

    Rashad is going to beat a lot of people at middleweight. He was manhandling people as a small LHW.

  • Fightlinker Jackal

    I find it hard to believe that Rashad can make 185lbs. This guy probably walks around at 220+. That would be a huge cut unless he decides to loose some weight from his chest lol.

    I know Fightlinker loves these videos… so here it is…

    I don’t know who the author is but it’s hillarious.
