There’s been no love lost between Michael Bisping and Alan Belcher in the build-up to their fight tonight at UFC 159, and that tension spilled over at yesterday’s weigh-ins as they exchanged words which ended with Belcher shoving the British fighter.
“You are sh*tting your pants, I can see it in your eyes!” Bisping exclaimed as they squared off after successfully weighing in for the co-main event of the card.
“You’re going to be sh*tting your pants after I knock your teeth out,” Belcher fired back as he shoved him in the chest.
The two men were then separated, with Dana White then stepping to defuse the situation, telling Bisping, “Go this way and zip it.”
Bisping looked to be trying to get inside Belcher’s head here, perhaps picking up on the fact that Belcher had admitted earlier this week that this was the most nervous he’d ever been for a fight as there was so much on the line and he didn’t want to lose to his rival.
However, he also claimed that this was actually a good thing and that the only fights he’d lost in his career had been due to the fact he hadn’t felt any nerves.
We’ll see if he’s right or not in the Octagon tonight at UFC 159. Stay tuned to https://mmainsight.com for all the results and fight reports live as they happen!
