Michael Bisping has just finished the first week of his training camp for his upcoming fight with Jorge Rivera at UFC 127.

His first video blog for the event shows him Battling a bitterly cold start to the year in England as he gets to work on honing all aspects of his game at the Wolfslair Academy in Liverpool for the upcoming fight which is expected to be the co-main event of the Australian card headlined by BJ Penn Vs Jon Fitch.

“I know Jorge Rivera’s a tough opponent, I’ve got a lot of respect for him…even though he doesn’t seem to have any respect for me, or my camp, or my training, or anything,” Bisping says of his opponent. “He’s been quite insulting to me, but nothing new there. Not a problem, I look forward to fighting him and correcting him on a few of his opinions.”
