Following a controversial victory over Jorge Rivera in which Bisping was allegedly penalized by UFC President Dana White for an intentional knee to his grounded opponent and following up with spitting on Rivera’s corner; Bisping names a new enemy on The MMA Hour.
“[Marquardt is] quite a hypocrite. He’s a steroid cheat, let’s not forget that. He’s had points taken away for illegally kneeing people himself, and then he goes out talking about me as if I’m Satan or something. The guy’s an absolute hypocrite. He s—- the bed every time he’s in a main event. He’s had three number one contender fights and a title shot and lost them all. I want to fight the top guys and I think Chael Sonnen for me is the biggest possible name I could get, and that’s what I’m hoping for. Nate Marquardt doesn’t excite me.”
A battle between Bisping and Sonnen is unlikely however as it was reported yesterday that Sonnen has pushed back his sentencing regarding money laundering. President Dana White has already made it clear that the trash-talking Sonnen will not return to the Octagon until his legal matters are in order.
