Just to attempt to clear things up the reason I don’t like Bisping has nothing to do with him being British, nor does it have anything to do with him taking shots at a deaf guy or w/e. To be honest there is no real incident that sticks out to me that is the reason for my dislike. I just don’t care for the guy. Might sound like a stupid thing to say, but I’m sure others have been in the situation where they just didn’t like someone and they didn’t really know why.

For my Comments on how it would be hard for Bisping to lose a decision in England came off a little wrong I guess or at least misconstrued. I wasn’t trying to imply some kind of conspiracy against American fighters by the judges in England. I was simply trying to say that with the crowd behind their native fighter it’s sometimes very hard to go against the local guy. I mean when the local guy (fan favorite) hits or does something to the opposing fighter the crowd goes nuts and I’m sure the judges can’t help but here that noise and think that they might have done more damage then they actually did. It also might seem like the local guy was in control of the fight because the crowd was so loud. This isn’t just in England either it’s difficult for foreign fighters to get the decision over American guys in the US. It's not an intentional thing it's just a result of the atmosphere in the arena.

By the way just for the record I’m the last guy to ever participate in a USA…….USA…….USA chant during a fight. The region where they live has little to do with my like or dislike for them.

Also I’m in no way trying to piss off the country of England because well let’s be honest they do have some of the most beautiful women in the world (keeley hazel, Lucy Pinder). Maybe that’s why they produce so many good fighters to impress the chicks?( see Brazil).

I want Leben to win, but that's most because I don't want him to go on the wagon again, then again if you're going to cope with a loss by drinking, you were never really off the wagon to begin with. Bisping, in my opinion, is going to win no matter where it goes, I just hope Leben deals with this in a constructive manner.
