When the decision was announced that Chael Sonnen had defeated Michael Bisping earlier this year, many felt it could have gone either way.
Among those with those feelings are Bisping himself, as “The Count” told MMA DieHards in a recent interview that he has re-watched the fight several times, and still doesn’t see how he lost it.
Every time I watch it, I think I’ve won. I’m not gonna cry and complain about it. It was a close fight. I think I won rounds one and two, he definitely got round three. So judges, whatever, they maybe favor the takedowns a bit much. I think the general consensus is that I won. Chael Sonnen even thought that I won.
Bisping is now set to try and get back on track against Tim Boetsch at UFC 149 in July. Boetsch is coming off a huge win over Yushin Okami and propelled him up the UFC middleweight ranks.
