UFC Quick Quote: Alan Belcher is 'living in a dreamworld' if he thinks Michael Bisping isn't ready for his Muay Thai

Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC

The upcoming UFC 159 bout between Alan Belcher and Michael Bisping continues to get heated. After all sorts of goofy side bets, now Bisping is going after Belcher's Muay Thai skills, saying his opponent is in a fantasy if he doesn't think "The Count" can hang with him in Thai boxing. Get the full quote below.

"He thinks I just throw wonky punches straight down the pipe and that he's a Muay Thai expert because he's been to Thailand. I've been to Thailand as well. Do you think I don't know how to do a flying knee? Do you think I don't know how to check leg kicks and all that type of stuff that you think you're gonna do? You're living in a dreamworld my friend. You wanna Thai box? Great. That's what I do best. Will I win against Alan Belcher? Absolutely 100 percent. Losing is not an option. I've come to far in my career for it all to go wrong now. I ain't going away. I want to be world champion and I'm not giving up and I need redemption for my last fight and that starts on April 27th when I beat Alan Belcher."

--Michael Bisping has already had to deal with all sorts of goofy pre-fight shenanigans with Alan Belcher, what with a $300,000 Rolls Royce side bet, a tattoo potentially being on the line and more, but he tells UFC.com that Belcher is "living in a dreamworld" if he thinks "The Count" won't be ready for whatever attacks Belcher has to offer. Bisping is looking to redeem himself following a recent loss to Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 7 where the mouthy Brit missed out on yet another shot at the UFC middleweight title. Bisping will be fighting late next month (April 27, 2013) on the UFC 159 main card. Do you think he can hang with "The Talent" if the fight stays on the feet?
