Michael Bisping: Anderson Silva and Thales Leites should hang their heads in shame

Props: UFC.com

Quoteworthy:

"I think both guys should hang their heads in shame, quite honestly. Leites probably won the first two rounds but nothing happened in the fight. [Canadian fans] deserved a hell of a lot better than they got from these two. I've seen more aggression from my fiancé when she hits the January sales. It was very frustrating for me to be sitting on my couch seeing Anderson Silva, who keeps saying how he’s gone through the middleweight division. I would have fought harder than both of them put together, and so would a lot of other middleweights."

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 9 coach of Team UK, Michael Bisping, reacts strongly to the much maligned UFC 97: "Redemption" main event between 185-pound champion Anderson Silva and Thales Leites at the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, on April 18. The five-round snooze fest offered little in the way of entertainment because it appeared that Leites was reluctant to engage on the feet, opting instead to flop to the canvas anytime "The Spider" got close enough to do damage. He did manage, however, to win a few rounds merely because Silva was unable to get going, but it wasn’t nearly enough — Silva earned a unanimous decision win to a chorus of boo birds. Perhaps in the future Silva can try harder to "Be like Mike."
