Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher Feud Continues at UFC 159 Presser (Video)
By FCF Staff
Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher have exchanged plenty of words heading into their UFC 159 tilt this Saturday,and nothing changed at a presser today to promote the card. After the two middleweights squared off for photos, UFC President Dana White was forced to intervene as the two started talking to one another.
At a media call earlier in the week, Bisping called Belcher’s career “pathetic” before stating that“I ain’t going to lose to you mate. It’s in the bag…it’s a formality. All I’ve got to do is show up, slap your little face, take my check and go home.”
Animosity aside, the bout holds a ton of importance for both men, as Bisping (23-5) is coming off a stoppage loss to Vitor Belfort, and Belcher (18-7) lost by unanimous decision to Yushin Okami in his last outing.
UFC 159 will be hosted by Newark’s Prudential Center and will feature light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones taking on Chael Sonnen.
