Chris Weidman Thinks Michael Bisping Is a Choke Artist
Michael Bisping thinks that Chris Weidman is a weasel. It doesn't seem to bother the surging title contender too much. The Serra-Longo prodigy recently gave a sound off on Bisping and his upcoming fight with Brian Stann for FightersOnly.
It’s an interesting fight and I think either Stann knocks him out or Bisping wins the decision. I know he is good and talented and he has faced some good guys but every time he has faced a top ten guy he has lost.
Like with the Chael Sonnen fight he did awesome and a lot of people thought he could have won but he didn’t find the way to win. And I am not knocking him – I think he’s a great fighter, I really do – but I question his mentality against top guys when the pressure is on. Which is pretty much what everyone says about him. He has had chances to fight for the title twice now and he doesn’t come through when the pressure is on.
This backhanded compliment goes to show that Weidman knows how to play the game. He is respectful enough to avoid being put in a scrap with the TUF star, but makes sure to point out that Bisping has failed each time he has been given previous opportunities in the UFC.
Bisping performed admirably against Chael Sonnen in January; however, Weidman has a point. When given the opportunity to step up into the elite, the British star dropped fights to both Sonnen and Dan Henderson. The Count has come up short in bouts with Rashad Evans and Wanderlei Silva too.
Currently scheduled to face Stann in the co-main event of UFC 152, Bisping should try and keep Weidman off of his mind. With a dangerous fight right around the corner, focusing on the task at hand is of the utmost importance.
Supposedly told that he will get the ever-evasive title fight if he defeats Stann, the 16-fight UFC veteran has been looking for this opportunity to arrive since his coaching stint on season nine of The Ultimate Fighter.
Weidman is also under consideration for a title shot after his thrashing of Mark Munoz in the main event of UFC on FUEL 4 in July. With a limited roster of fresh contenders for Anderson Silva, it appears as if the win has pushed Weidman to the front of the line.
Will Bisping choke against Stann and miss out on a title shot once again?
