Chris Weidman thoroughly defeated the best to become the champ and stay the champ. Meanwhile, Michael Bisping won a season of TUF, but whenever he strings together some wins and title talk enters into the discussion, he gets clobbered. Since Bisping won a hard-fought battle against Thales Leites this past weekend, once again the notion of him fighting for the belt was brought up.
Weidman doesn’t think much of that, or of Bisping’s chances if ever they fought.
“I would love for him to fight for the title because I’d literally beat him sleepwalking,” Weidman laughed. “I think I could beat him while I’m sleepwalking. He has no punching power so I can literally fall asleep while he’s punching me, just get a hold of him and throw him on the floor. If he doesn’t get knocked out when he falls on the floor I’ll just submit him.
“I could submit him with my eyes closed. 100 percent. That’s not even me talking any junk. That’s just me being honest.”
Weidman is due to face No. 1 contender Luke Rockhold sometime later this year, but mockingly hoped the stars somehow align for Bisping.
“That poor guy,” said Weidman. “It would just be such an easy fight. I don’t think I’d even have to get in shape for it. I hope to God that he somehow gets his way to the top. Right now he’s so far from it but I really hope he can get there. I know he’d talk trash back and it’d be exciting.
“I just don’t have full confidence that he could get to the top. Boring decision. Boring decision. If he fights a guy like Romero he’d really have to get lucky to win that fight.”
I’m with Weidman, here. Bisping poses zero threat to him, and the likelihood of the two of them sharing the cage is slim to none. But hey, maybe the trash talk out of Bisping’s mouth would be fun, right?
