Michael Bisping fires back at Chris Weidman for recent remarks

As one of the few middleweights left in division without an upcoming bout scheduled, and as an unbeaten competitor, Chris Weidman believes he is the top contender to face UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva.

Michael Bisping, meanwhile, is slated to face Brian Stann at UFC 152 this September. The match-up has plenty of importance, as both believe they can become a challenger to Silva with a victory in tow.

However, Weidman recently made some comments regarding Bisping that seemed to tick the Brit off a bit, saying in an interview with Fighters Only Magazine, “I think he’s a really great fighter, I really do, but I question his mentality against top guys when the pressure is on.”

As a result, “The Count” fired back at Weidman, saying “Chris the Wiesel Weidman saying I fold under pressure. Hahahahaha I needed a good laugh this morning.”

Bisping will have his hands full with Stann, but there’s no question it would be an interesting outing to see the Brit paired up with Weidman down the road.

    Oh the comments are open on this Bisping article. I kinda think Weidman is right, Bisping does really well unless its a title contention fight, then he doesn’t do really well.

    I agree with Weidman. Just look at the Hendo fight. Circling into Hendos power. If that’s not a brain fart I don’t know what is.

    Wouldn’t you be pissed off if you were Bisping tho? Bet he never “brain farts” again like he did vs Hendo. He’s a pro.

    I hate Bisping but he showed up to the Sonnen fight and he def did a good job & in my opinion I think that was a huge fight with pressure & in my eyes he didn’t fold
