UFC Middleweight Michael Bisping

Michael Bisping has claimed Jorge Rivera’s pre-fight videos were nothing but a waste of time. However, by the way Bisping reacted during Tuesday’s UFC 127 press conference it was clear “El Conquistador” had gotten under his skin.

While yesterday’s presser was one of the shortest in recent history, it was the intense face-off that took place immediately following the media Q&A that has the MMA world buzzing.

Although Rivera has had plenty to say in his highly comical videos, it was Bisping that couldn’t stop bumping his gums when they stood eye-to-eye. It was clear Bisping was irritated, while Rivera uttered just a couple of words until the Brit backed away.

UFC 127 takes place this Saturday inside the Arena in Sydney, Australia. The middleweights will serve as the card’s co-featured contest.
