Sonnen Admits To Bisping That The Decision May Have Gone Wrong

Quote:
“First of all I want to say congratulations to Chael Sonnen. He obviously did enough in the judges eyes to win the fight so congratulations to Chael.

Personally I think I won the first two rounds. I think there is no question he won the third round, although if I had another round I probably would have stopped him.

He even said to me after the fight before the decision was announced, he said, ‘What do you think Mike?” And I said honestly I think I got the first two rounds and he said, ‘I think you might be right.’ But as I said, it was a good fight, competitive, congratulation to Chael Sonnen. He did enough in the eyes of the judges to win the fight.”

The recent quote was stated just moments ago during the UFC on FUEL TV post-fight special. According to Bisping he believes he won and so does his opponent Chael Sonnen.

What do you think Penn Nation?

Bisping should've got 29-28 across the board.

I have Chael winning this fight in a close decision.

Anyway, the 2 biggest "villains" in the Middleweight division truly show respect to each other.

I think it's more a mutual respect thing. It was never really a secret that they like one another.

I'd like to see a rematch to be honest. I think we might one day.

I agree. I still think Sonnen took it, but if Bisping had been given the nod I wouldn't be surprised either. Nice to see the mutual respect being given!

I personally had Bisping 29-28.

I would be very surprised if he didn't win his next fight and get a shot off of that win (maybe the Belfort/Silva winner?, or Munoz when he's healed up?)

He showed great wrestling defense and scrambles, I had forgotten he was such a good counter wrestler. And his stand up looked as good as it always does.

Its odd that there's so much praise in a post about a fighter who I really don't like.
