UFC middleweight Michael Bisping (pictured) doesn’t fight Mark Munoz until October 26, but in true Bisping fashion, why waste good trash talking time?

It’s only been three days since their shootout was officially announced, but that didn’t stop Bisping from starting his verbal assault on Munoz, who is widely regarded as one of MMA’s nicest guys.

“He’s a great wrestler, but I think he’s one dimensional,” Bisping stated on this week’s edition of FUEL TV’s “UFC Tonight.” “Anybody who refers to themselves as having a Donkey Kong style, I refuse to lose to. I’m far too skilled for him. He’s going to try to take me to the ground and use these stupid punches that he throws.

“He’s very powerful and I’m not underestimating him. He’s a very accomplished wrestler. Listen, I’m going to punch him in the face repeatedly and eventually he’s going to fall down. On October 26, I’m going to kick his ass, and no one’s even going to think about him anymore. If they thought he was depressed before, on October 27, the day after the fight, he’s going to be really more depressed then.”

After getting knocked out by Chris Weidman last July, Munoz revealed he slipped into a state of depression. He quickly found comfort in comfort food – lots of it.

At the beginning of this year, Munoz weighed 260 pounds, just seven pounds away from getting disqualified from competing in a heavyweight MMA fight. However, he quickly turned his life and career around in a matter of only five months to emerge a shredded monster.

“I went from obese to a beast,” was Munoz’s war cry.

Munoz bounced back nicely by dominating Tim Boetsch last month at UFC 162. Bisping was most recently seen beating bitter rival Alan Belcher in April.

“The Filipino Wrecking Machine” will be entering hostile territory when the two collide in Bisping’s backyard of Manchester Arena in England.
