man this Bisping is one of these guys.
he is talking sh*t the whole time, he is the most disrespectful person in MMA but when someone even has the audacity to talk back, he flips it back on them

Then HE is starting crying about ppl being disrespectul to HIM and stuff.

I really admire Miller for his patience man. I honestly couldn't stand there when he was announcing the fights and started to talk out of his ass again, without bullrushing this tool.

And yes, I would even root for Sonnen when the two would fight....

In British culture the top dog in a group of men is usually the wittiest and the best joker. The worst crime is to be boring. That said there are still clear rules, and no-go areas, and in British culture Bisping stayed well within these.

But to show the difference between British and American culture. Chael Sonnen smack talk, is an absolute obscenity against the gentlemanly code of honour. saying that you're going to slap a guy's wife on the ass and tell her to make you a sandwich. Or disrespected jujitsu Academy saying it is a joke, disrespecting everyone involved, people you've never met.

But on the other hand Sonnen's remarks were quite funny. It all depends how you take it. But mark my words Miller is far too intelligent to go down the dead-end street of taking the moral high ground. He'll be back to his funny self, or he will be finished in terms of the banter.
Hang on, don't start implying Bisping epitomises British culture. Yes there's a lot of whit and sarcasm here but he's terrible at doing that and mixes it with masses of disrespectful and outright nobbish behaviour.

The latter is not being "British", it's acting like an asshole.

I really look forward to the time when a British fighter is famous and a TUF coach purely because of his fighting abilities, not because he's a controversial antagonist. That way, at least folks in the US will see a bit more than the likes of McSweeney and Bisping acting like complete idiots.

And it's not like I really dislike Bisping, my mild patriotism makes me still want him to beat Miller, especially since Miller likes to mock British accents. I hope Bisping wrecks him actually, but that doesn't change the fact he is acting with no class at all.

In fact, Dan Hardy is someone who actually has some whit yet still has some humility, especially in defeat. If you're going to talk about the stereotypical whit and sarcasm of a British person, Dan Hardy is far closer to that than Bisping.

Is Bisping really what the English consider witty and funny, Anteries? Cause I find Miller a lot funnier, and he takes a joke a lot better than Bisping, too.

But isn't it funny when he calls Miller "wacky and zanny", I mean if that isn't the highpoint of english comedy I don't know what is.

The bottom line is this you cannot beat British verbal bullying, in my opinion it's nastier than anything America has to offer. we have far fewer guns in Britain so we can be far ruder and nastier without the risk of getting shot.

To me, Miller for the moment has lost the one-upmanship. pulling the moral high ground card is equivalent to running to mummy.

This is just my opinion, just sharing, not try to convince anyone or say that anyone is wrong.

Yeah, it's a shame that Dana gave Bisping the three easiest fights to get his guys to the finals.

Frankly it should have been

1. Bedford vs 4. Pague
2. Dillashaw vs 3. Dodson

1. Diego vs 4. Akira
2. Bermundez vs 3. Caraway

1.) those are how the fighters are likely ranked
2.) it would set up Wrestler vs Grappler finales now it looks like we might get two Wrestler vs Wrestler finales.
