Michael Bisping Thinks Tim Boetsch Is a Harder Fight Than Mark Munoz
Michael Bisping doesn't mince words.
It's a trait that makes him one of the best interviews in the sport as well as one of the UFC's most-hated fighters.
Bisping joined the illustrious Gareth A. Davies on the ESPN UK Podcast and discussed several interesting tidbits, including a comparison between his UFC 148 opponent Tim Boetsch and Mark Munoz.
I have never really looked at Mark Munoz and thought he looked like a particularly dangerous opponent. His ground and pound looks good, his wrestling doesn’t look all that dangerous, his stand up is suspect and he’s got a weak chin. I think Tim Boetsch is probably a harder fight.
I'm sorry, but I have a hard time taking someone seriously when they say Mark Munoz' wrestling doesn't look all that good.
We all know Munoz has some of the best wrestling in the sport, with the pedigree in amateur wrestling to back it up. His entire ground and pound game—which I will admit has become the most-feared aspect of his game—is predicated on his ability to effortlessly control his opponents on the ground.
It may not look like much, but it takes an enormous amount of skill and strength to do what Munoz does to his opponents on the ground.
Who is the tougher opponent for Michael Bisping?
I don't know if Boetsch is a harder fight than Munoz.
Both fighters hit very hard and both are very strong, but I think Munoz' wrestling game gives him an advantage over Boetsch.
Bisping also revealed that he turned down an offer to fight Cung Le at UFC 148.
That's a good move on his part. Le is coming off a knockout loss to Wanderlei Silva, and it would have been a step back for Bisping to go in the cage with him.
Bisping lost his last bout to Chael Sonnen, but looked great in the fight and it was much closer than the judges' scorecards let on.
He should be inching his way towards a title fight, not away from one, and Le would have been a big step back in terms of his contending for the title.
