Video: Chael Sonnen vs Michael Bisping trade shots face to face for the final time before UFC on FOX 2

Shortly after the UFC on FOX 2: "Evans vs. Davis" weigh-ins took place today (Fri., Jan. 27, 2012) in Chicago, Illinois, Ariel Helwani caught up with middleweight co-main event match-up participants Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping to give them one final chance to come face-to-face to trade shots before they get down to business inside the Octagon tomorrow night.

Sonnen goes back to his usual schtick:

"I don't walk around looking into cameras and telling people I'm the best fighter in the world to hear myself talk. I say it for the same reason they put warnings on packages of cigarettes. And fighting Chael Sonnen may be hazardous to one's health."

Bisping has grown tired of it and brings the heat just as heavy (if not more so):

"Yeah, that's probably why he walks around with a fake middleweight world title belt. I'm not interested in fake belts; I'm interested in the real belt. I'm in a fight with Chael Sonnen but unfortunately just lately he's starting to look like a court jester as opposed to a fighter and Saturday night I'm going to make him look like the fool that he's become."

Sonnen would go on to say that now that the disclaimer is out of the way, if "The Count" shows up tomorrow night, whatever happens is on his hands. The Brit gave his props for another good line but reiterated that he'll be putting Sonnen in his place at the United Center.

Tired of all this talking, Maniacs? Me too. It won't be long, though, before the cage door closes and none of this matters anymore.

Tick tock.
