Michael Bisping says he’s "Ashamed" of the UFC 127 Spitting Incident

Speaking via a popular British newspaper The Telegraph, UFC Middleweight contender Michael Bisping issued an apology for UFC 127 spitting incident.

Since the incident, Bisping came under heavy fire from the UFC President Dana White, fans, fighters and the media, who unanimously accused “The Count” for disgracing the sport. In his statement, Bisping once again denied that he ever spit on Rivera’s cornermen, but still declared himself “ashamed” of what happened:

“I was out of order. As a father, as a mixed martial artist, or possibly even as a role model, it’s not a way I should be behaving. It’s not how a mixed martial artist should be acting; not how any many should be acting. Of course, I do regret it, and I owe Dana [White, UFC CEO], and the UFC an apology and I won’t be acting like that again…. I went into the fight very angry. I let it get the better of me after the fight. I want to make it clear – I never spat on his cornerman. I spat on the floor to let him know what I thought of him…I said some words…I’m not even sure what the words were now, that was immediately after the fight had finished. After that, I instantly apologized. It was out of order.” – quote via MMAMania.com.

Actually, it’s not the first time Michael Bisping apologizes for what happened at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia. Here’s an interview done with Bisping only a few hours after the infamous bout:

The identity of Michael Bisping‘s next opponent is yet to be determined, with Chael Sonnen, Vitor Belfort and Nate Marquardt all expressing their interest in fighting the Brit. Bisping is currently 21-3 in his MMA career, enjoying a three-fight winning streak with victories over Dan Miller, Yoshihiro Akiyama, and of course, Jorge Rivera.

    Sounds like someone got b*tch-slapped by Dana. Too little, too late, there Count, nobody accepts your weak-ass apology.

    And I am sure you will do it again, because you have done it before and you are an immature hot-head and not a professional like GSP and just about every other UFC fighter.

    The only reason he is apologizing in the first place is because White is MAKING him do it.

    Well the video is from immediately after the fight, and he’s already apologising. He even apologised in the ring post fight so there goes your theory about Dana forcing him to do it. So you can say “too little too late” but it’s bs. He used every post fight video to say sorry and it was unprofessional.

    Also – HE’S an immature hot head? You’re still hot headed weeks and weeks after it happened. Jumping to attack him at every chance, so I think that’s pretty rich coming from you.

    If you really cared about bending the rules you’d start shouting about Koscheck or any of the roid-heads. That’s real cheating, there’s no crime of passion element to taking roids. No heat of the moment element, it’s calculated.

    There’s something else at play here and I can’t put my fish-finger on it…. Anyway, on an unrelated subject – I’m off for a cup of tea and a scone.

    I like The Count. He’s a cool guy even though he has some anger issues. It’s a good look that he’s stepping up and apologizing. He owes it to himself and to the entire organization to due the right thing. I don’t look qt it as him bowing down to Dana, i look at it as being a man and owning up to his mistakes. Instead of acting completely ignorant like his fellow Brit Pual Daley. But actions speak louder than words at the end of the day, so keep the positive actions up buddy. Bisping Vs. Marquardt, I wanna see it!!!

    First – If he’s ashamed of it, then please know this Bisping, we, the MMA community and UFC fans in particular, are ashamed of you.

    “It brought out the best in me” – really? Illegal knees to the head of a downed opponent, continuing a diatribe demanding an apology from a TKO’d fighter and then marching over to his corner and both flipping them off and then spitting on them….THAT IS YOUR BEST? If that is your best Michael, then you should either stop fighting or realize you have a long way to go and a lot of growing up, to do.

    The apology – he apologized to Dana and The UFC, but not to Rivera and not to his corner or at best, gave it passing notice. Translation – he’s “only” apologizing to the people that control his income and career, he really doesn’t give a crap about the actual incident. I heard nothing in the way of an apology to The Fans; particularly those that were in attendance.

    Compare it to – Paul Kelly apologizing to Donald Cerone at the end of their fight; out of The Octagon and on camera. You could (honestly) tell that Kelly was genuinely upset and sorry; that the apology was from the heart. Bisping’s apology, if this is one, is not enough. He should have at least issued a video addressing it; Lord knows he posts enough useless and stupid videos; he obviously has the time and talent to put one out, if he so chose.

    What I am hoping – is that, with the growing list of people who want a shot at this guy (Sonnen, Marquardt, Belfort for example) that not just one of these guys, but a “string” of these guys begin to lay the beating on this guy that he sorely needs and deserves; to pick up where Hendo left off. That is my hope.

    …he truly is a wanker.

    @ Endo

    Koscheck is on steroids? That would be news to me.

    Do you have any proof of this? I’m not a big JK fan, but I’d never accuse him of cheating; certainly not taking steroids. His build in no way, shape or form, suggests that. Instead, he simply looks like he’s in great shape; as great athletes tend to do.

    To be blunt – that is a slanderous remark and if this thread is about shame, then you should be ashamed of that comment. I am left with the opinion that JK’s build is the result of nothing more than a lot of hard work, conditioning, diet and good genetics; nothing more.

    If you have pictures, film and non-anecdotal evidence that Koscheck is cheating, using steroids, then you should post it and send it along to the CSAC & The UFC. If you do not have it, then you should stop making slanderous public allegations, for which you have neither the proof, nor standing to make.

    If you are a Bisping fan – then I can understand how you might want to try and defend your guy; that’s fine. Heaven knows Bisping needs defenders. However, don’t defend him by trying to attack, rip down or defame another fighter; not with unsubstantiated allegations of cheating.

    ….hope you enjoy your tea and scone.

    I think all he meant there was that Kos bends rules and other people take roids. Don’t think the implecation was meant to be that Kos was a roid head.
    I was annoyed with Bisping to begin with but since he apologising and saying it was all heat of the moment and that Jorge got under his skin i can kinda forgive him a bit, if he does it again though he will be losing a fan.

    Sonnen has nearly as many losses as bisping has wins. Just because he exposed Silvas weakness in the octagon does not make him favourite against Bisping. I hope to see belfort v Bisping as that has the makings of a great fight but favour Bisping over either. Just because he is a Brit does not take away any of his underrated talent.

    it would appear you are a big bisping fan, and possibly have intimate feelings for him.

    I actually don’t understand why we are all still talking about the incident though, he will move on to the next fight, a fight against one of the top 5, get blown apart and sent back to beating tin cans. Bisping doesn’t have the talent or skill to compete with marquardt, sonnen, belfort, okami or silva. Let’s just enjoy watching one of them put him in his place and leave that as punishment enough :)

    Almost all of Sonnen’s losses are by submission. Bisping is not know for his submission skills. He is a striker with good wrestling. 2 of Bisping’s 3 losses are to outstanding wrestlers (Hendo and Rashad) and another solid wrestler (Hamill) kicked his ass en route to getting robbed in a UK biased split decision.

    Chael is a horrible matchup for Bisping. If they fight 100 times, Bisping is lucky to win 5.

However if we are being fair, if it were any other fighter, Dan Henderson, Rampage, Griffin, any fan favorite that reacted this way after Jorge Rivera and his camp talked endless shit , every last one of you would have responded with a Jorge got exactly what he deserved.

    Well, well, well. Gary Blackbelt is throwing his hat into the fray – what a shocker. I say Tomato you say Towmaytow – let’s call the whole thing off. I asked Gary what art he got his blackbelt in and he told me “fighting”. I’m starting to doubt it’s legitimacy.

    @ WingChun: I did just mean Kos was a blatant cheater, didn’t mean he was on roids. But I didn’t write that bit as well as I could have – the “or” worked on two levels, which was clearly one too many.

    @ Ryan

    “If you really cared about bending the rules you’d start shouting about Koscheck or any of the roid-heads.”

    The inference here, is that Koscheck takes steroids. That taking steroids is bending the rules. If he meant JK was a rules bender he should have referred to him as such. However, the way it is written, it leaves the reader with the impression that Koscheck takes steroids. I don’t see how you could read that any other way.

    My guess would be – that if Koscheck read that, he would take it as an accusation of steroid use. Other than that, what “rule” bending would we be talking about? His acting in the ring? That’s not rule bending. Outside the ring? Whatever it might be would be irrelevant.

    As to rule bending – taking steroids is not rule(s) bending. It is cheating. Sonnen, for example, was suspended for cheating, not rule(s) bending. Koscheck is not a cheat and he’s not a rules bender.

    As long and as short as they need to be. What I find funny, is I never read any criticism of anyone else who writes a lengthy post; and that wasn’t even a lengthy post.

    There are people on this site who post more than I do and who are wordier than I am. I see no complaints about them. Also, if you read my posts, you’d know that they are not all long; quite the opposite, really.

    And if you cannot find the focus to read a (roughly) 300 word post on a subject you’re apparently interested in, then I’m not sure what to tell you. As to me “probably” making a lot of sense, you will never know if you don’t read it.

    Thank you for the clarification. Perhaps some on the thread will now conceded the point; that it (your post) could have been read or construed, as such (that Koscheck was on steroids).

    And again – please note…I am not a Koscheck fan. If someone had made a similar contention about Bisping I would have defended him, as well; for he clearly is not on steroids. Fair is fair and bias has no place, when it comes to facts.

    Again, thank you for setting the record straight.

    Ya know – I’ve had the same thought. I think he’s too small for 205. I know, he’s too small for 205. I mean heck, if Marquardt can muse about 170 with an serious thought, then surely Bisping could pull it off. Problem would be though, he’d exchange one problem for another; GSP. He can’t beat GSP; either @ 170 or if GSP were to come up to 185. There are fights that GSP would win @ 185 and fights he would lose, but Bisping is not one of the losses. No way; at either weight.

    @ azz

    I meant that as a generalization; as an observation of fact. The man has (virtually…note the qualification) “0″ fan base in North America and my assessment would be that (even) British fans will tire of his haphazard wins and winning style. And if you wish to be the fan of an average fighter, who spits at opponents and their corner at the end of a fight…of a guy who goes up and berates and confronts a dazed fighter (just) after TKO’ing and after having delivered an “intentional & illegal” knee, one which should have caused his disqualification from the bout and the rendering of his opponent (JR) as the victor….then be my guest. He’s all yours.

    As to me not liking him – you’re right I don’t; and not because he’s not a great fighter. I don’t like Bisping because of his personality, the same way I don’t like Koscheck. The only difference between the two, is that JK is a legitimate fighter, who very well (might be) champ, one day. He has most if not all the tools and certainly all the power, conditioning, wrestling and heart, required to accomplish it. I cannot say the same thing about Bisping. I don’t see him being champ of anything, let alone 185.

    Handful of Keyboard warriors & their relevance – really? You only think it’s a handful. Now whose the one speaking for the vast majority? As to their relevance, they are the fans. If Bisping or you don’t see the relevance in that, then I’m sorry. It’s a business and if you want to be successful, you need fans; fans pay for the PPV’s and tickets. Bisping has no throng of people that are clamoring for his PPVs and tickets; unless maybe it’s to get his ass handed to him by Belfort, Stann, Marquardt, Sonnen, Munoz, Palhares etc….not to mention Silva; and he’ll never achieve enough consecutive wins to get that fight.

    Cheers for reading my post, though.

    As to my rants – this is a thread about Bisping and spitting, is it not?

    Is this not a thread about the British fighter name of Bisping who spits at his opponents and their coroners, throws them the bird and then harasses vanquished opponents with verbal tirades? If so, then I think I’m in the right place to “rant” about him.

    Concluding – stop trying to pretend that when I speak for myself, that “many” others don’t feel the same way, too.

    You’re British, correct? Wow – and you’re on a thread trying to tell us what “we” means.

    You say – “by any definition”…Okay, the definition I choose is the the “Royal” We. How’s that or does that blow a big hole in your point? For any North Americans who might not know, the “Royal We”, is a singular context, not a plural context; “we” meaning “I”, as that un-elected, non-tax paying, state supported, on the doll, old Illuminati wind bag…would refer to herself.

    And factually challenged one – who is preventing you from talking? And for the record, you are not talking, you a writing. Do you grasp the difference?

    Now – why don’t you run along like a good lad and leave the real business of MMA to “men”; for…WE…are not amused.

    Holy cow! The shame sure took a long time to sink into Bisping.

    After the fight, he was still trying to justify his brutish behavior by claiming Rivera made him do it because of his trash-talking on the internet.

    You can learn a lot of things in life, but learning to have class as a human being is rarely learned. Usually, the only thing the classless learn is how to disguise their lack of class.

    Bisping has regurgitated more PR platitudes to try and save the day, but I doubt anyone is fooled.

    There is a plus side to all this tempest in a tea pot.

    I now look forward to seeing Bisping smashed again. Perhaps Hendo could come back to MW and do it again–now that would be sweet.

    First – his name is Koscheck. I’m not sure who this other fellow, Koshcheck is, but I’ll assume you mean Koscheck.

    Secondly – “Oh yeah Josh Koshcheck is really legitimate!” Thank you for conceding the point.

    Thirdly – You attest, as if it is fact, that he’s faked injuries and on multiple occasions. Do you have “proof” of this? Is there something in the way of film, photo, doctor’s note or even jail house confession, which you could provide to this thread, CSAC & The UFC, which would substantiate your allegation? My guess is that you have no “proof” of anything and at best, the only thing one could accuse Koscheck of is “gamesmanship”; which is not illegal. It might piss some people off, but then again, so do enforcers in hockey, the DH rule in baseball and “stunt” plays in the NFL.

    Me being a prick – thank you. I wish I could repay the compliment, but I don’t find you or your posts evocative enough. From my point of view, being a prick is a good thing, at least in defense of one’s self. For some reason you decided to chime in on this thread and espouse your displeasure of myself and my opinions. Which is fine, actually. However, you did so in a crass and disrespectful manner. Subsequently, I have treated you in a similar manner. I am not, in life or on this site, a “prick” proactively, as some are; yourself included.
    Strangely though, you seem to be shocked or miffed at my treatment of you. How did you think I’d treat you? Kindly? I fear I am not that decent a human being; “proactively” disrespect me and I will stomp on you. It’s my golden rule; respect is given, where it is shown.

    Personally, I think Bisping had enough in this whole spitting story. His image suffered a heavy hit, and it will take a lot of time for him to repair it.

    His problem is, as is GSP’s from what I can tell (only it’s not an issue to GSP @ 170) is that he doesn’t seem to pound the weights and I’m sorry, bigger and stronger “is” better; particularly if it’s accompanied with great technique. And let’s face facts, two combatants of equal skill and weight, doing battle, the victory will go to the one who is bigger and stronger; size and power actually are a skill; you just don’t walk into a gym and pick up a 500 lb bench, the way you do a black belt. To get the type of depth and strength of a guy like Shane Carwin, is years of works; decades. It is a skill – IMO.

    If Bisping was smart – he’d go train with Lesnar or Carwin; if they’d have him. He could pick up the two things he needs the most, from either of those guys; wrestling and power training.

    Cheers to you, GB

    Wingy, you’ve made some reasonably good points in your discourse however you lost me when you doubted Koscheck has faked injuries during fights. There is the same evidence of this as there is evidence that Bisping is a douche…the opinions of 90% of MMA fans.

    You should give that one up.

    To me the spitting wasn’t the worst thing. Neither was the intentional knee. It was when Jorge was down, being attended to at the end of the fight, a moment when most fighters make up (even Shamrock and Ortiz 3), Bisping tried to get into the scrum to yell at him. tsk tsk

    yes wing your correct on the technique. size does matter at times depending on the person . but technique and keeping your head sound and focused is the key . so if you have those two techniques and focused mind set thats all you need . it takes many years for sum one too be skilled at what they do. and bulking up takes many years of weight training . and yes their are guys that are just built bigger toned naturally that are bigger than most guys ,lets just use lesnar here yes he is big and strong. but in mma lesnar needs more skills , such as his boxing and must have better knowledge on the ground. how too get out of problems on the ground. but thats just a start you need good conditioning . take carwin for example his stand up is very good he has very good power and great wrestler. but carwin needs better conditioning if he is competing in mma .. i have only used weight training for kick boxing . and yes i am a black belt in karate been doing it since i was a kid ! over 26 yrs !

    @ GB

    We may deduce, by a myriad of parameters, that SlickRick is from the UK; let me give you one – he posts about his eating habits; which would namely consist of tea and crumpets. We know from these compounds and their ancillary and incumbent properties and toppings (butter, jam, peanut-butter, cream cheese etc.), that these are low protein “foods”. Subsequently, we may conclude, that SlickRick is, in all likelihood, operating with “diminished” mental faculties; as a result of his lack of protein intake.

    Therefore I suggest, in an actuarial sense, that SlickRick not only suffers from impaired mental facilities, but also, as a consequence of a lack of motivation, clarity of mind and control of his physical being, he has acquired (over his life-span) a complete “lack” of will and (resultantly) a body fat ratio (well) in excess of 25% of his BMI and that he trains “not”, in any art form, is “not” a member of any gym and exercises “not”, in any capacity that you could name or deem noteworthy.

    SlickRick, in conclusion, is a whole lot of (not “Love”, for the UK Zeppelin fans out there, but rather) puff and bluster. He’s the loud mouth at your local; give him a few pints of Guinness and all-of-a-sudden, he’s Shane Carwin, with a hint of Mike Tyson….oooooh; I’m all scared.

    Concluding – I take SlickRick’s opinion and throw it where it belongs, in the garbage, with the rest of the trash; hold on, I have to move the Michael Bisping bag, first.

    @ Bruce

    Dear Bruce – Koscheck and his faked injuries…what faked injuries are you referring, too? What “proof” do you have that The UFC and CSAC, don’t have? When “we” (both the collective & the Royal; to cover both) “stipulate” to something and you are stipulating, then you need proof or at least evidence (and there is a difference between the two, if you don’t know; evidence & proof, are not the same) and I doubt that you have either and if you do, then I call you on it (now). What do you have?

    90% of MMA fans & Bisping being a “douche” – really? I personally, have never referred to MB as such; I have called him a wanker, however. I guarantee you, that you will never produce evidence or proof that he is. I challenge you on that, Mr. Lee. Prove that he is a (literal) douche. Prove that 90% of fans agree with you.

    Giving it up – consider your analysis, prior to posting. I give that up as reasonable advice.

    Cheers,

    Wing Chun

    Note: Evidence is something admitted into (a) court (or a group of accredited peers) , prior to or during trial (or review). It becomes “proof” upon the rendering of a verdict; by either Jury or Judge. It is not deemed proof until such a conclusion. The same may (also) be said of non-legal judgments; those best described as empirical in nature; mathematics or the sciences, by definition.

I’m sure if you met face to face in a lovely rustic English pub or a throbbing Vegas club, sat down had a few beers, I’m sure you’d all get on very well. No one’s gonna change what any of you thjink of Bisping’s actions and it doesn’t matter now. All he has to do is go back to his gym, train hard and wait for his next opponent where,win or lose, he’s gonna get a huge pay cheque that I could only dream about. That’s the reality. Lucky bastard. I’d get in the ring with Chael Sonnen and see how long I’d last for tens of thousands right now……I’d probably do him in anyway cuz I’m a right ‘ard Bastard!!!!

    The point is Chael Sonnen hasn’t been outstruck or TKO’d in at least 5 years. You have to submit him to win. Bisping does not have the skills to do that.

    Bisping on the other hand, has been outwrestled. Sonnen most definitely has the skills to do that.

    Sonnen will destroy him.

    Bisping hasn’t had to use his submission skills because he doesn’t fight people who are good enough to take him down, hold him there, and do good damage. The best anyone did against him on the ground was Denis Kang, and his “takedown” was flooring Bisping with a perfectly timed overhand right. Even still Kang had Bisping on the ground for most of round 1 and inflicted approximately ZERO damage.

    Oh brother! That is the goofiest retort I have yet to see from you. Now we have to have proof of everything we say or you will call us on it? I think you are thinking too highly of yourself.

    Don’t pretend that you thought I meant that he was a literal douche? You are not that narrow minded. Douch = Wanker. Whatever.

    To argue to one poster that they are too narrow in their definition of the word “we” and then to argue he is not a douche he is a wanker….well, fill in your own self critique there.

    The proof that Kos has faked injuries during UFC fights?….your own eyes. You seem like a decent fight fan and so you have seen it for yourself….unless I have over judged you.
