I still don't fancy him to beat Weidman or Jacare. To be honest, if he rematched Rockhold next I'd still pick Rockhold. It's just one of those things where everything just clicked and fell into place for Bisping this time. From the win over Anderson to Weidman getting injured to the first choice replacement Jacare getting injured to Rockhold himself getting injured. The timing of everything just fell perfectly for a Bisping upset. And I STILL never expected it to happen. And to think, when that London card was originally announced it was going to be Bisping vs Mousasi. How different things could've been now if that had gone ahead. I love that the two things Bisping was fighting for his whole career - the Anderson Silva fight and a title shot - he's done both in less than six months. Does anyone think Bisping's shit talking in the build up might've got to Rockhold a bit as well? I thought Bisping already verbally TKO'd him at the press conference on Thursday. It reminded me of the Gloves Are Off for Froch vs Groves 2 where Froch played a blinder, had an answer for everything and there were numerous times Groves sat there looking gormless with his mouth open. There was a bit of that about Rockhold for me this week. I think Bisping's unshakeable self belief and confidence irked him just enough to get in his head. Bisping could retire now and he's achieved way more than anyone thought him capable of. I genuinely never thought the day would come when fucking Bisping would be in this position. I'm that chuffed I completely forgot the 'first UFC champion from England' bit of the whole story. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
