UFC 159 videos: Michael Bisping says his punching power will 'shock' Internet crap-talker Alan Belcher

Forget the monkey, Michael Bisping wants to shock the 'Talent.'

Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Michael Bisping is fighting to stay alive in the 185-pound "mix" when he throws hands opposite Alan Belcher at the upcoming UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" pay-per-view (PPV) event on April 27, 2013 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

And "The Count" insists his "good old-fashioned grudge match" against "The Talent" is not fabricated.

Bisping also has a message for his opponent, as well as the fans who think he has no punching power: You're in for a shock! We could use one, as the brash Brit is one loss away from exiting stage left. A defeat in "Dirty Jersey" won't earn him his walking papers, but it would certainly spell the end of his on again, off again title run.

Which after two high-profile losses in less than two years, is already on life support.

UFC 159 will feature a light heavyweight title fight pitting champion Jon Jones against challenger and fellow TUF 17 coach Chael Sonnen. Bitter 205-pound rivals Phil Davis and Vinny Magalhaes have also been scheduled to hook 'em up in "The Garden State."
