After Bisping's "O-wow-i'm-famous-and-can-now-be-a-penis" attitude he pissed a lot of ppl off. This had nothing to do with being form another country. A dork is a dork, no matter where they are born, and carappy behabviour is the same as well. Since then he has been coached well, has had staff writers write press statemnts for him, but in geenral I'm past that.
Sad you brought that into here, and if you really look at the forum there are many people attacking the US and not vice versa. I'm getting really tired of your hate making you assume we hate you.
Another reason people don't really like him is that he is seen as "kind of the Kimbo" of the UFC. I.e. he's not top tier and is protected by the ufc and is being brought up slowly.
I think what really stands out in my mind is that he really is the runner-up of TUF, and he lost to Hammil in a big way- and he will not own up to it.
As far as the english thing- I think the opposite is true. He was really liked early on, in part because of the cool accent, and because he either was humble or just portrayed as such on TUF.
Personally I think the Hammil thing and the incidents of that UFC are in the past and forgotten. I have nothing against Bisping. I do want to see how he will handle getting KTFO by Leben though
Heck, maybe he'll get KO'd and win by decision.
