Many fans shared mixed feelings on Saturday regarding UFC on Fox 2’s co-main event between Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping. As usual on controversial decisions, White was asked to weigh-in with his opinion.
“Actually, I did score that fight, I had Bisping two rounds to one,” said White to Ariel Helwani in a UFC on Fuel TV post-fight interview. “I was actually saying before the fight, this isn’t a five to one underdog. Bisping wrestled with Rashad, the way Bisping wrestled with Hamil. There is debate as to who won the Hamill fight. He was in there with Hamill. Bisping has great wrestling, good stand up and great submissions, too.”
Though there was not much of an offensive attack by Sonnen from the top, the judges seemed to favor Sonnen’s takedown efforts. Sonnen was successful with four out of seven attempts. Many thought the stand up however was a clear decision maker for Bisping, however according to compu-strke, Sonnen took this as well, winning in all areas except head shots.
