Michael “The Count” Bisping is never one to hold back his thoughts. During the Silva vs. Sonnen II rematch, the UFC had the U.K. slugger front row, mic’d up to give his opinion as the fight unraveled. Bisping seemed quite complimentary of both men as he watched with Women’s bantamweight Strikeforce champ Ronda Rousey.
Interestingly, Bisping is the first to jump and call fowl when Silva knees the chest of Sonnen. The irony there is Bisping was seen doing what many call an intentional knee to Jorge Rivera in their grudge match. Following much controversy, the knee was shown to land mostly on the chest of Sonnen, which is legal as long as it’s not the face of a grounded opponent.
