The way Michael (The Count) Bisping sees it, he has an easy night Saturday.
Bisping faces fellow middleweight contender Alan (The Talent) Belcher in the co-main event of UFC 159 in Las Vegas. The card will be headlined by a light-heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen.
Bisping stated in a recent media call his fight with Belcher is “in the bag.”
“A win over me, for Alan Belcher, will be, by far, the biggest win of his pathetic career,” Bisping said.
“It's in the bag. It's a formality,” Bisping continued, addressing Belcher. “All I've got to do is show up, slap your little face, take my cheque and go home.”
“We'll see Saturday night,” Belcher calmly replied.
“We bloody will, mate,” Bisping countered. “Because you know what's coming, big man.”
“Yes, I know exactly what's coming,” Belcher flatly responded.
Though Belcher sees Saturday's fight unfolding differently, he admitted a victory over Bisping will be the biggest of his career.
