Alan Belcher: 'Panicked' Michael Bipsing and his 'plastic chin' already blaming his corner for upcoming loss at UFC 159

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

I just want to say one word to you. Just one word. Are you listening? "PLASTIC."

Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight contender Michael Bisping is already blaming his corner for his upcoming loss to Alan Belcher at the UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" pay-per-view (PPV) event on April 27, 2013 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

That's according to "The Talent" in his latest pre-fight blog:

"He never fights confident, he fights defensive, which is why he's hard to hit. He's still fast, very technical, with great cardio and some good skills. He's not easy to hit clean, which is why he's only got KO'd twice despite having a plastic chin. But I am prepared. I know the guy better than he knows himself right now. I have more power than you. I can walk through your best shots and keep on coming at you. Bisping, you panic when you are put under pressure, when you get clipped, and that panic is going to get to you again on April 27. You don't want to be panicking in the Octagon when you are locked in there with a finisher like me. I can submit you and I sure as hell can turn your lights out just that - boom! I have no doubt in my mind that Bisping cannot hurt me. I have no doubt that even if I let him hit me in my face, the worst he could do is cut me. He can't stun me, can't do nothing."

Bisping, in his video blog (watch it here), says his opponent is in for a "shock."

Like "The Count," Belcher (18-7) has managed to hover in or around the 185-pound title picture during the latter part of his career, yet always seems to get upended just as he's close to winning the big one. Case in point, his unanimous decision loss to Yushin Okami last December in Las Vegas.

Which may be quickly forgotten if he lives up to his word and finishes the Great Brit in "Dirty Jersey."
