Jorge Rivera seems to have gotten under Bispings skin with recent comments in the press. No love lost as Bisping tells his side of the bad blood.

I finished 2010 on a high. 2011 I want to fight Jorge Rivera, beat Jorge Rivera.

Jorge Rivera said not only does he want to win this fight, I want to f— him up. And all this S—. I was shocked. I always found Jorge Rivera to be nice guy. I thought he was a class act. He’s just another s— taker, talked his way into to a high priofile fight … he’s going to get his ass kicked

I was fighting kids at five years old, I’m not scared of anyone. If Jorge Rivera thinks I am scared of him then he is seriously f—— deluded.

He has a pretty decent stand up game. Hes a Thai Boxer. He’s been around for a while. I dont look at him and think WOW. He’s certainly not Anderson Silva.

He’s effective, he seems to hit hard. People always talk about Jorge Rivea’s right hand and what a devastating striker he is. I couldn’t give a s— about his right hand.

I believe I’m a better mixed martial artist, full stop. I’m going to be in better shape. I’ve fought much better opponents. I’m going to be dictating what happens in this fight.

This is my fight to win. I’m going to be choosing exactly what happens. I’m going to hitting him with this hand, that hand, these legs, kicks, knees, takedowns, everything. And he ain’t going to be able to keep up.

He’s on a roll, I’m on a roll. I don’t think it is going to be easy at all. But I’m going to prevail in the end.
