“Spending so much time around him has given me confidence. Obviously I grew up in MMA watching Dan Henderson fight and he was a hero for me…I watched him win two belts in two weight divisions [in Pride, a mixed martial arts organisation in Japan]. I am looking forward to the fight and I’m going in really confident that he is going to lose… in fact I know he is going to lose…I am going to win every minute of every round for the whole fight. I am going to be too quick for him, too fast. His striking is no where near my level. All I’ve got to watch out for is a big right hand and the clinch. As long as I avoid that I think it’s my fight to lose.”
Bisping has been sharp at middleweight, but I really think Henderson’s going to put Bisping on his ass and pound him out. I’ll concede that Bisping is the quicker fighter, but I just don’t see Hendo letting Bisping outpoint him for three rounds like he did against Leben. What do you think?
