Michael Bisping isn't asking for respect at UFC 100 -- he's taking it



"A lot of people still underrate me and, I feel, don’t give me the respect I deserve. So I look forward to going into this fight and taking my respect. He’s said a few things about me I think that disrespected me a little bit — disrespected my skills and my previous opponents. So I’m gonna teach him a lesson come Saturday night. I surely don’t see myself as the underdog. I can see why, on paper, some people feel I’m the underdog, but personally I don’t see it that way. I see Henderson as the underdog. And I’m gonna show the world why."

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 light heavyweight winner, Michael Bisping, keeps up the confidence as his showdown with Dan Henderson at UFC 100 on July 11 draws closer. "The Count" has been talking a good game to promote the middlweight showdown, saying previously that Henderson is "nowhere near his level." The winner of the match up between Bisping and Henderson, as well as Demian Maia, are the front runners to challenge for the 185-pound title next. Does Bisping get treated unfairly because of his arrogance and TUF status? Or is he just not ready for a fighter on Henderson's level? Awaiting feedback...
