Michael Bisping

“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.”

–Michael Bisping via Telegraph.co.uk (via MMA Mania), shares his thoughts on his upcoming fight against Dan Henderson at UFC 100.

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?
