Finally we here from Mr Bisping. After seeing all the others fighting such as Matt Hamill, Kendall Grove and Ed Herman to name a few I was beginning to wonder where The Count had gone. Can't wait to see him fight again. Well rated!

Violence solves everything!

Its about time...IMO he is the best fighter to come out of TUF(any of them) so far. I too have been wondering why we had already seen Ed, Matt and Kendall fight and not him. If he wins this fight I think they should put him up against Rashad...mostly because Im ready for Rashad to go down.

I don't think I can even remember seeing Eric Schafer fight. Is he pretty good? I don't see Bisping losing anytime soon until they put him up against the big boys at the top

Im surprised no one has mentioned that Bisbing has been injured.
He has had a pulled groin for some time now. Bisbing is one of the best fighters that was unknown to most people here in the U.S to come off the Tuff show. Im sure people who have pulled for him will not be disapointed. I believe he will have a very productive career in the UFC. The thing I like most about Bisbing is he knows how to talk smack without looking like a goof. I felt sorry for Ed Herman after he lost his fight. The guy could not even express himself intelegently. He sounded stupid, he did not even give credit to Mcdonald for fighting a good fight instead he said he fought a bad fight making it sound like Mcdonald was lucky. The one thing Dana White wants his fighters to do is always show good sportsmanship. It's importent how the sport is percieved by the public. Fighters like Herman do not project the positive image the UFC want's the public to recieve. Herman is not the only one but is the one that came to mind from the most recent fight.

he was in UFC 62
one of the last fights of the PPV
he was pretty good on the ground as i belive he has a BJJ black belt and
he put Rob MacDonald to sleep in a matter of seconds
macDonald just didnt have a chance

If you watch any of Bispings fights before TUF, you will be plesantly surprised. He is good on the ground. I dont see many people beating him. Although im bias.

Ya he killed Mcdonald easy.

hahaha i told you guys this last time you asked, i told ya, Next UFN/TUF Finale hes going either either Main Event or Main card it.

i believe this fights in november.

Should be a good one, hopefully we can see the count at his best, i mean he hasn't really been tested outside of getting hit with ross's big haymaker from TUF 3 semi's.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.
