pre-madonna? is he singing now? or maybe sleeping with the American PoP singer???

I think he is just a low blow no character dumbarse excuse of a human being who should have been disqualified for his intentional illegal knee. His W should be stripped out of him and he should be cut from UFC...

But that's just me.

Good rant. And I agree.

here's from Sherdog.... I happen to agree with this writer:

Bisping needs Sonnen, and vice-versa

Michael Bisping was almost a sympathetic figure in dispatching Jorge Rivera. After a competitive first couple minutes or so, Bisping started scoring takedowns and it became apparent that Rivera was, after all, going to do exactly what he???d been brought to do: give Bisping a fight with all necessary drama and animus of a showdown, then get taken out on account of the weaknesses in his game.

Bisping did just that, eating a few shots before wearing Jorge down. It was all going well, this tale of revenge, until Bisping blatantly kneed Rivera in the head while Jorge was down.

He spit through the cage afterward, allegedly at Rivera???s corner, then confronted a still-woozy Rivera afterward and yelled at him before being separated by the ref and cooler heads.

Bisping needs Chael Sonnen. Now.

Once Sonnen???s back from his hiatus, a Bisping match would be epic. It would also make an awesome season of TUF, if for no other reason than shameless appeals to internet trolls and reality show nonsense.

If Michael thought Rivera???s schtick was rude, wait until Sonnen whips out his bag of tricks, playing everything from the American vs. England angle to whatever else Chael thinks up. Rivera???s Youtube video assault on Bisping was solid work, but one can only imagine how furious Bisping would be once Sonnen goes to work on him.

It would also be a good way to rebuild Sonnen???s image with his fan base. Let him play the heel against Bisping, who???d take the bait in spades. Eventually, the UFC has to match Bisping against someone who???s a legit top middleweight in their prime (the last two attempts, Wanderlei Silva and Dan Henderson, didn???t pan out), and it???s a win-win either way.

If Bisping pulls the upset, he???s probably earned a title shot. If he hasn???t, Sonnen???s right back in the mix, with all the good humor and comic one-liners we remember him so fondly for. I rarely believe fights are a ???lock??? to predict, but I think this is a perfect matchup for Sonnen.

Thanks ever so much. Hope all is well.-Chael Sonnen

Did he really send that? This is a match they gotta make, and making it a tuf season would be awesome build up. It would probably be the only time I root for sonnen lol

Yes he did, and I agree. Imagine those two on TUF?

I normally just catch an episode here and there, if at all most seasons, but I would probably watch the entire season with those 2. The only season where I watched them all was Rashad and Rampage bc I liked to see what dumb thing Rampage would do next to bug Evans.

What did you think of the Penn-Fitch fight?

Still haven't seen it, but read a lot about it here and on a few other sites. From what I read I'm impressed he was getting takedowns himself and escaping from Fitch quickly when on the ground bc I really thought Fitchs size would be a bigger problem. It sounds like it was a good thing for Penn that it was 3 rounds and not a 5 round title fight. Until I see it I can't say anything about the decision but from what I've read it looks like Penn fans think he won 29-28 and everyone else (except roni) either agrees with the 28-28 or think Fitch won 29-28.

Say whut???

I agree with a decision.
Be it 28-28 or 29-29 (second round being 10-10).

Like I said, this is exactly like Rampage & Machida and I think that fight should have been a tie.
The difference here is that BJ actually clearly WON a round while in the Rampage & Machida fight, Rampage did not really win any rounds (Machida lost it by running around, but it was not something Rampage did, like BJ taking Fitch down).

When I watched with Jim, we both agreed BJ won the first round and we both were on the fence about the second round. The third round was domination by Fitch, but it's not lie he cut BJ or hurt him. He simply was on BJ's guard. No submissions or attempts to pass guard, so it is debatable if this even warranted a 10-8 (on the actuall way people judge, not my own personal feelings).

So I was actually ok with either winning or a tie.
