Congratulations Wanderlei -- but Michael Bisping thinks he won the fight


Props: UFC 110 post-fight press conference


"It was a close fight. Personally, I think I won rounds one and two. Congratulations to him. Full credit to him on winning the fight. Personally, apart from the guillotine, and I got dropped in the third round, but apart from the guillotine attempt off the takedown in the second round, as far as round two, I really didn't have any offense come my way. I felt I clearly won those two rounds. I'm a little annoyed, you know? I don't come here to put on a good performance. I come here to win. Winning is what's important. We don't put all this effort in to lose to a good fight or a good performance. Yes, Wanderlei is a legend, and I was very proud to be in there with him, but I'm a little disappointed right now. I lost tonight. I'm pissed off about that. I don't train this hard to get losses. But I want to get back in there ASAP and fight another good name and get back to my winning ways."

A dejected Michael Bisping reflects on his UFC 110 loss to Wanderlei Silva during the event's post-fight press conference last Saturday night (Feb. 20). The Wolfslair product concedes that he nearly succumbed to the Brazilian on two separate occasions when "The Axe Murderer" strangled the TUF star with a punishing guillotine to close out the second round and then again had a stoppage within reach after dropping the Brit in the waning seconds of the fight. Both times Bisping was saved by the bell but really didn't see any part of the fight that he didn't control outside of those two isolated incidents. Any fight fans out there siding with "The Count?"
