He expected better...
Tim Kennedy spoke with MMAjunkie and said he's disappointed with Michael Bisping's trash talk leading to their fight at TUF Nations Finale. Check out the highlights:
On the trash-talking game between then: "It has been a one-sided campaign of talking crap because he sucks so bad. Apparently he's the best at it. Him and Chael Sonnen are supposedly the one's who can talk the most smack, but obviously not because he can't hang at all with what I've been doing the past six weeks. I'm fairly disappointed in the allure of Michael Bisping's crap-talking. He still has a couple days, so hopefully he has an ace up his sleeve. If not, I'll be disappointed."
On whether Bisping's mind games will work on him: "I fight emotionless. When we're in the cage, I'm going to do what I'm supposed to do. I'm sure he hopes I'm going to get a little crazy. I'm going to hit hard, always look for the takedown and always look for the submission. If he doesn't keep his chin down, he'll be waking up shooting a double on whoever the ref is."
On Bisping's skills: "Michael Bisping is a very good fighter. He's been top five for like five years. Look at the guys he's beat, the guys he's lost to. He's beaten really good guys, and he's lost to just the very best."
On Bisping as a person: "I don't ever see Michael and I being friends. I'm just not going to be hanging out with him. We're different people, different lives. He mocks everything about who I am as a person. All the things I stand for: serving my country, my family. These are priorities in my life as who I am. We're never going to be friends."
