Michael Bisping and the 8 Best Trash Talkers in the UFC
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Michael Bisping may not be the original heel of the UFC, but he’s emerged as a guaranteed smack-talker with some zingers tucked away in wait. Sure Tito Ortiz paved the way, but his days as an elite trash talker are as far distanced as his days as an elite competitor.

Michael Bisping now holds the crown.

The outspoken Brit has an uncanny knack for getting under the skin of his foes, and it typically works. He called Jorge Rivera “an old man,” and promised the fight was nothing more than a “free payday,” Well, he was kind of right, on both points.

Before battering fellow TUF 14 coach, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Bisping made it known that he found his hair-dyed rival “quite annoying.” He also made multiple promises to brutalize the wild Mayhem while making the promotional rounds. He lived up to his word, pummeling the longtime veteran and former Bully Beatdown host.

The man’s let a ton of quality lines loose, and some have been rather memorable. The reason Bisping ranks amongst the absolute best trash talkers in the UFC is the fact that he works his prodding with startling effectiveness.

This guy really, really gets inside the heads of his opponents. If you can walk the walk after talking that talk, you’re a mobile marketing machine.
