I'm really glad they're going to start putting him against fighters who can help him rank up and fight contenders.
I agree, he will be tested when he meets stronger competition. His arrogance is evident, but only a few fighters are humble so that doesn't really set him apart in my book.

I've been a Bisping fan since TUF3, I was rooting for him and Ross so MMA would spread in the UK. I never watched TUF before that, so I didn't get to know Leben very well when he was on there, although people speak of him as if he was a prick in the house. Was he?

As a rule, I tend to root against any man who colors his hair. But what I like most about Bisping is that when they have him on a fight card in the UK, it is usually a free event for us Yanks in the states.

Hammill had been shitting all over Bisping since he won TUF 3, way before the fight was even set. After the loss everyone felt sorry for the innocent deaf guy who put on a sad face, but the truth is he was a complete asshole to Bisping.

Bisping got a lot of heat for what happened with Hammil and a lot of it was undeserved. Bisping is a solid fighter and in one post fight interview. Hammil became an angel and erased his asshole past and Bisping became the devil.

Honestly I like Bisping although the guy has had some asshole moments in his past and to deny that is just stupid.

However almost every fighter has had asshole moments in fact it's hard to think of any besides like Nogueira. So people shouldn't be so hard on Bisping.

True I don't remember ever thinking Fedor was an asshole. But I mean even loved fighters like Arlovski and GSP have had moments where they came off as assholes.

GSP after the Serra fight, Arlovski blaming Werdum after their fight when he was the one who wouldn't come foward.

Most fighters have done something during their career that makes them seem like a dick.
