Bisping on training times and DeMarcus Johnson

Hopefully, some of the people giving me heat will change their minds when they learn what actually went down, because to say I am angry about the editing would be an accurate statement.

To my mind – and I know Team UK and my coaches agree 100% - we were given the shaft time and again over the issue of training times and I feel completely justified in standing up for my team.

Here’s the full story: when we first got to Las Vegas, Dan and I and both teams were told by Dana White – it was on camera – that Las Vegas was neutral ground. But Dana wasn’t always around and no, Vegas wasn’t neutral ground and every single member of Team UK will back me to the hilt on this point. They were all pretty sick of it towards the end.

After I got to Vegas, Dan and I were asked which training times we preferred, and I shouted out first I wanted the earlier slots, which were early morning and then early evening. The reason I wanted the early time in the morning was because I didn’t want the late night slot in the evening, leaving my team up until at least 10:30pm every night.

But Dan also wanted the morning slot and, at it happened, even though I said ‘first’, Dan got the slot. The producers compromised and said that we would alternate the nights every other week, so my team would have the early slots in the second, fourth and final weeks of filming.

However, come the second week, and Henderson refused to move and the producers said he could have the best training slots all through the series. I was a bit miffed, especially as we’d been promised these times would alternate, but we got on with it and started incorporating early morning road work into our routine.

But then, during the final week of filming, here comes Henderson suddenly deciding he doesn’t like early mornings after all and wants to change.


Quote:
Let’s move on to the other big incident involving yours truly in this episode: me throwing some water into DeMarcus Johnson’s face.

Unlike standing up for my team regarding the training times, I do regret this, as it was out of order. Even though Johnson and I don’t see eye to eye, I shouldn’t have done it, despite him piping up and continuing to push my buttons yet again while I was trying to have a conversation with Henderson.

But I apologised, and come on, a grown man storming off and literally CRYING in the car park for 15 minutes because he’d had a bit of water thrown at him? What is this, American’s Next Top Model? It was the most pathetic, self-indulgent performance I’ve seen since Gwyneth Paltrow won the Oscar.

Basically, the guy had been smirking and sniping at me from day one, right from when I saw through his ingenious plan to psych me out in the kitchen when I first got to Vegas.

He would continue to snipe and smirk at me throughout the entire series and I know if one of my team was disrespecting Henderson, I’d have told him to tone it down a bit.

Really Mike? he smirked at you? He stormed off upset?

Sounds to me like good old fashioned hypocracy.

Bisbing is a smart ass. He always has something "witty" to say and always plays it off as "getting into their head". Now we see he doesn't respond so well to receiving the same.
F-ing baby!!!

I was thinking the same thing. Bisping is one of those guys who can dish out the crap but can't take it themselves. His ego seems to have been inflated quite a bit since he was in the TUF house as well. Although a small part of me still likes him as a fighter, I can't wait for Dan to show him how much of a rook he still is in the ring.

Big Time Mike has forgotten all of his humility. I used to like him as a fighter and a person til seeing some of his spoiled starlet antics lately.

I'm British and i have defended Bisping quite a few times, but this season of TUF has seriously put me off the guy, he just seems to act like a jackass 90% of the time. However, i guess some of it can come from the fact that the majority of the Us team are constantly talking smack, whereas the Uk guys dont seemed to get involved in it all, but that in no way makes up for the way Bisping has acted.
I really dont like Cameron at all, at first i just thought the smack talk is all in fun, but when its non-stop it does get ennoyin, johnson pretty much falls into the same category.
Regarding this whole training times thing, i take it as no surprise that the editors made it look like dan henderson was completely in the right, its too bad all that editing cant make the guy any less boring.

I didn't mean it that way, it was kind of a joke from Saturday night live a while back.

I meant more of "about things that happen in the real world, and not in a manufactured situation."
