Nate: Henderson Shut Him Up. Month Later he is a Loudmouth Again. I wanna shut him up

Michael Bisping, through all the trash talk, spitting, and other antics that have made him the MMA villain he is today, has indirectly turned himself into one of the biggest draws in the UFC’s middleweight division.

After his TKO win over Jorge Rivera, the controversy weighed heavy in media circles. Rivera’s camp went on record and described Bisping’s actions as “deplorable” and “disrespectful.” Assault charges are typically filed in similar situations.

The character that Bisping advertises in the UFC has made him a “bad guy” in the sport, equivalent to what you call a “heel” in professional wrestling. The level of villainy he has reached is that of Legion of Doom-type altitudes, spurring the need for defenders of truth, justice and all that other stuff you hear about in the DC Comic universe.

As of right now, one fighter interested in being defender of justice to Bisping’s protagonist ways is Nate “The Great” Marquardt. The Jackson’s MMA fighter spoke with MMAWeekly Radio and confirmed an interest in getting the opportunity to shut the mouth of the brash British fighter.

“I think Bisping has always been a loudmouth,” Marquardt said. “Henderson taught him a lesson there for a little bit and he was quieted down for about a month, then (he was) a loudmouth again. It would be a pleasure to fight that guy and shut him up for another month.”

Clearly, Marquardt is not a fan of Bisping and his antics, but let us not jump to the conclusion that he sees all of Bisping’s actions as completely out of line. After watching the TUF alumnus’ fight against Rivera, Marquardt feels the “knee from down under” was not as intentional as the rest of the MMA universe thinks it was.

The knee may have come while Bisping was under the impression that a legitimate opening was there.

“I don’t believe he meant to throw it illegally,” he said. “Jorge had his hand on the ground and then he pulled his hand up and he raised up. That’s when he threw the knee and wasn’t thinking (Rivera’s) knees were on the ground and that he’s still a grounded opponent. I don’t think (Rivera) was the same after that, although Michael was already winning the fight. But it was still competitive up until that point.”

As far as giving Bisping the benefit of the doubt, the talk about the illegal knee is just about where it ends. Beyond that one moment in the fight, Marquardt does not give the British fighter any more slack. According to him, the actions Bisping displayed do not represent those of a true martial artist.

“It’s not what a martial artist or a sportsman should be doing,” Marquardt explained. “It’s just not good for the sport. It’s disrespectful, dishonorable.

“That just shows the kind of person Michael Bisping is.”

Bisping is currently without an opponent for his next fight. Marquardt is set to fight Dan Miller this weekend at UFC 128 after original opponent Yoshihiro Akiyama withdrew due to the tragedy in Japan. If Marquardt is able to get past the New Jersey resident, he could put himself in a slot to fight Bisping next.
Well enjoy. That is possibly my least creative thread title that i put thought into. Lol.


Id love for Nate to shut Bisping up for a month. Then for someone else to shut it for a month. Until it gets wired shut for 3-4 months. And then hopefully he gets used to not talking.

At first, I thought the title said "Henderson shut up" haha.

But on topic, I think this could be a good fight. I have Marquardt coming on on top though. It would be sweet if this happened and Bisping was KO'd with an overhand right again! :thumb02:

What a load of absolute rubbish.

Legion Of Doom were good guys in WWF !!

I'd rather see Vitor vs. Bisping.

Vale_Tudo 03-16-2011 09:42 AM

Meh, I'd rather see Sonnen throw him around like a little b*tch for 15 minutes.
And the pre-fight trash talk would be insanely fun

Why is there not more blame being placed on Rivera and his band of jackasses. There is no question what Bisping did was was wrong, but it can also be described as reactive.

It seems like "poor" Jorge's defeat and illegal knee shot have magically erased the addmittedly funny pre fight hype video he and his pals made, as well as the 5 minute plus "Bisping is a dick" video... that was not nearly as funny.

Jorge got his as far as I'm concerned, and I'm wondering why no one is calling him out for his actions. Sure he lost the fight... but in my opinion there is no question who the bigger dick in the entire situation was, it was NOT Bisping.

There are three fights I would love to see Bisping involved in and it would be against Sonnen for the trash talk and embarrasement Sonnen would bring to Bisping. Not to mention the pure domination on the ground... Vitor is an obvious choice too. If anyone is going to shut that mouth up, it's him after he KOs Bisping and breaks his jaw... Marquardt is my third choice too due to him having that nice KO power that will shut the lights off if he connects on Bisping's mouth.

LOL this good stuff coming from a guy who took steroids...........

It's starting to look grim for Bisbing no matter who he fights next. It is like the top three contenders in the division just painted a giant bullseye on his back, and none will be satisfied by anything but ample amounts of Bisbing's blood!

Its not looking grim , Bisping is making more money than alot of these guys and is closing on a title shot and is being rewarded with fighters ranked higher than himself , thats every fighters dream.................Even if he loses he will being paid alot of money and fighting in the premier MMA organisation.......
