Killing the impotent rumors that Michael Bisping would face off against Evan Tanner at UFC82, Sherdog is announcing that Bisping will instead face off against Charles McCarthy at UFC83 in London. They source American Top Team for this info, but really … when news this dumb is announced you know it’s true because it’s way too stupid for anyone to make it up.
So who the fuck is this Charles McCarthy guy anyways? Apparently he was on The Ultimate Fighter 4, getting eliminated in the first round by Pete Sell. He’s also got the most awesome website ever. Past that this guy is a fucking ghost … I’ve seen 12 year olds with a bigger google footprint. I guess the important thing to know about Charles is he’s being set up to give Michael an easy start in the middleweight division.
I’m kinda torn about this … I mean, the UFC did basically tell Bisping to drop down a weight class, and it could be considered ‘reasonable’ that he get an easier fight for his first outing. On the other hand, Bisping’s already been given enough softballs in his career to open some sort of stupid softball emporium. There should be some kind of rule that you only get one softball fight in your UFC career, and after that it’s constant meat grinder. Can’t cut it? Back to the minors, you filthy limey.
