UFC Quick Quote: Michael Bisping vows to kick Mark Munoz's ass in Manchester, send him deeper into depression

New, 178 comments

Shots fired! Even though UFC Fight Night in Manchester, England, is more than two months away, it didn't stop Michael Bisping from trash-talking Mark Munoz and predicting that he will grow even more depressed ... and fatter ... the day after their Middleweight main event wraps.


"He's a great wrestler, but I think he's one-dimensional. Anybody who refers to themselves as having a Donkey Kong style, I refuse to lose to. I'm far too skilled for him. He’s going to try to take me to the ground and use these stupid punches. He's very powerful, and I'm not underestimating him. He's a very accomplished wrestler. Listen, I'm going to punch him in the face repeatedly, and eventually he's going to fall down. On October 26, I’m going to kick his ass, and no one's even going to think about him anymore. If they thought he was depressed before, on October 27, the day after the fight, he’s going to be really more depressed then."

-- Mark Munoz admitted that he morphed into "Fat Bastard" after his wig-splitting technical knockout loss to Chris Weidman at UFC on FUEL TV 4 in July 2012. At his lowest point, Munoz tipped the scales at a ridiculous 261 pounds (see the pic here), which is 75 pounds more than his Middleweight fighting weight (185 pounds). Munoz admitted that he, "ate because he was sad and was sad because he ate." He was able to turn it around and return one year later against Tim Boetsch at UFC 162 last month, which lead to a high-profile showdown against Michael Bisping in the UFC Fight Night main event planned for Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, on Oct. 26, 2013. It's a heart-warming redemption story, however, Bisping isn't sympathetic. In fact, "The Count" took to "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV this evening (via to warn Munoz that once he's through with him, "Filipino Wrecking Machine" might be headed back to an even fatter farm to cope with his depression.
