Bisping: “I’m going to crush ‘The Axe Murderer’” (Plus Rampage news)

From his own Website:

http://www.bisping.tv/?q=node/772

Quote:
Speaking via his latest blog on the Daily Telegraph, Bisping said:

“I had some great news this week and a welcome boost to preparations ahead of my next appearance at UFC 110. My close friend, MMA legend and the man you will see kicking ass as “BA Baracus” in the brand new 'A-Team' film in June - Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson - will be joining me in the gym this week.”

“Rampage and Wanderlei have fought three times in all and don't like each other one bit. It is great to have Rampage back at the gym. He's a great friend and I am very grateful to have his input and support during this camp. Obviously, Rampage and Wanderlei have shared a legendary series of fights, and I am very much looking forward to getting the inside scoop on Silva and making it two-all in the battle of Wanderlei vs. the Wolf's Lair Gym.”

“Training for this camp is already going very well. I know Wanderlei is a legend in the sport, but styles make fights and I truly believe my style is a very bad fit for Wanderlei. With Rampage giving me the insider's perspective, I am even more confident of beating the legend at the Acer Arena in Sydney on Feb 21st.”

“Believe me, getting out of bed early on a winter's morning knowing you are going to spend the day getting punched in the gob by Rampage isn't the world's greatest feeling. However, come fight time I will be very happy to have had the experience. As far as power goes, Wanderlei's power is legendary - but so is Rampage's. It is tough love, but Rampage will get me used to taking that kind of brutal power. At least as used to it as you can get!”

“Despite Wanderlei's legendary reputation, I am not going to be overwhelmed in this fight. I am not going to stand off and be in awe of Wanderlei. Yes, he's a big-name in mixed martial arts and is one of the most recognisable figures in the sport. Yes, he also packs plenty of power in his fists. However, the way to beat Wanderlei is to go out there and show him no respect. Rampage did exactly that and he blasted Wanderlei out of there inside a round. If you give Wanderlei too much respect, he’ll chew you up and spit you out.”

“I'm planning on one thing and one thing only: going out to Australia and beating Wanderlei Silva up. I'm not going out there for a holiday or to make up the numbers. This is the biggest fight of my life and I can't accept anything but victory. I know what I'm up against and I know exactly what I have to do to beat him. I don't take fights just for the paycheck.”

“That's not what I'm about. I'm taking this fight because I know I can beat Silva and because I want to keep moving towards a UFC title shot. I'm living, eating and sleeping Wanderlei Silva right now. Like Rampage did 13 months ago, I'm going to crush ‘The Axe Murderer’...”
Good to see he is going to make a fight of it. I don't think this will be anything like his fight with Leben or Henderson in trying to out-box his opponent. Also his latest blog for anyone interested:

I hope he knows he doesn't have the kind of power Rampage has so this fight will not end the same way..but I wish him the best.

I can't see Bisping KOing Silva. Even though Wandys chin has been failing recently, Bispings pillow hands won't do much.

My response to everyones faith in Wand is.....Have you seen him in the past 2 years. What has he done lately to warrant such unwavering faith. I am not a Wand hater or anything but lets face it people are only as good s their last few performances and his have not been good.

I can completely see Bisping taking this.

Unfortunately I believe Bisping will take this. I can see him outpointing Silva rather easily I'm afraid but if he tries to come in too aggressively SIlva will probably take his head off. Bisping's head movement is not the world's greatest. He takes more shots than he really should. And getting to close to Silva will make that into a deadly flaw.

But - if he stays on the outside - I see him easily outpointing Silva and frustrating him.

^this^
Rampage got wrecked and dominated twice by Wandy, and was losing the exchanges pretty well until he caught Wandy in the 3rd fight. Now don't get me wrong win is a win, but I doubt Bisping can really learn too much from Rampage whose style (and KO power) is so different from Bisping's.

Right back at you, have YOU seen his fights? Yeah the record looks bad, but to be fair he had an epic war against Chuck, destroyed Jardine, got caught by Rampage and lost a close decision (which many thought he won) in another epic war vs. Franklin. Yes he has losses but all are against tier 1 competion in extremely entertaining fights. I could totally see your point if he had been tooled by all of them or if he had been dropped left and right by everyone like Chuck, but he has fought nothing but top competion in last 7-8 years winning majority of the fights.
Who exactly has Bisping beaten during that time? Exactly...

I know where your coming from but Wandy is still a dangerous opponent for Bisping.

He still has the power to KO people and the guys he lost to are no scrubs. Crocop, Hendo, Chuck, Rampage and Franklin are a seriously difficult line up of fights.

Make no mistake, this is a very dangerous fight for Bisping. Wandy only needs to land one hard shot and Bisping is going to go to sleep. The same can't be said for Bisping, if he wins it'll most likely be by decision.

I hear you about Wandy, but Bisping was scared to death of Chris Leban lol would hardly exchange with him. Now this is Wandy were talking about, not OLD school Wandy but damn close. He looked good IMO against Franklin and as was mentioned above he was winning exchanges with Rampage before he got knocked out.

I think Bisping is going to take Silva down a lot in the 1st 2 rounds and maybe do a little standup, Bisping has the advantage in conditioning and im sure regardless of what a legend Silva truly is i still think cutting to 185 is going to be a factor.
Is Bisping the same fighter that fought Leben.. NO i think he has realised his short comings and with Hendo doing him a major favour by KOing him has made a mental change to his game and will be more aggressive.
I wish both fighters the best and truly may the most deserving on the night win.
