Pillows, piss and blood: Michael Bisping promises to beat the s--t out of 'one dimensional' Mark Munoz in Manchester

Michael Bisping wants to get back into the 185-pound title picture, but Mark Munoz is standing in his way.

"He's the nicest guy you could ever meet. He says that he's gonna put me to sleep. His best chance of putting me to sleep is by talking to me for longer than five minutes. When I look at him, he's a very sloppy striker. You could say somewhat one dimensional, so I'm gonna expose that weakness. On the feet, I think it's a one-sided fight. Yes, he's got power, but I've got much better, faster and more precise striking. As soon as that referee says 'go,' I'm going to beat the shit out of him from pillar to post for the entire 25 minutes. Munoz went out and said I had pillow fists, by the way, which is really unoriginal. Good one Munoz! If he thinks I've got pillows for fists, then maybe I can give him one of those pillows when he refuses to get off the floor, when he's left on the floor in a pile of piss and blood."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Michael Bisping had plenty of nice things to say about Mark Munoz, who fights "The Count" in a five-round main event at UFC Fight Night 30, scheduled for Oct. 26, 2013 at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, England. Unfortunately for "The Filipino Wrecking Machine," there are title implications in this contest, so all those pleasantries will go right out the window when they hook 'em up in Bisping's back yard. It also doesn't help that Munoz has been calling his opponent "pillow fists" in the build-up to their fight, an obvious and somewhat overused description of the brash Brit's punching power. Then again, it's possible those remarks were a rebuttal to Bisping's claims he was going to send the former fatso back into a state of depression. Will the nice guy finish last in Manchester?
