I find it distressing how many people are saying the obviously illegal knee is OK because Rivera talked smack before the fight. If someone talks shit, the rules don't apply? Was Daley's sucker punch on Koscheck after the bell OK, then? Do you feel the same about Hendo's flying death blow on Bisping?

Rivera fought better after the illegal knee than he did before it

No, Bisping was clearly the better, more conditioned fighter.

He was ripped off of an opportunity at a fair fight. I think Bisping cheated twice, grabbing fence, and the illegal knee which was absolutely done on purpose. Bisping was out of his find pissed and emotional during that fight.

I think Bisping is the better fighter but at least give Jorge a fair shot.

When I think about this fight I got watch Hendo vs Bisping and then I feel better about life.

For some reason, Bisping doesn't get any flack for the fact he shot 10 FUCKING takedowns in the first round!!! He was scared of a journeymen's power enough to shoot more double legs than NCAA wrestlers. If he was truly offended by Rivera, he should have been looking to fight him and not shooting takedowns like someone scared of getting hit. Bisping fought that fight scared and no one ever mentions it.

I think Bisping was just super pissed off. I don't agree with the knee, yeah it's blatantly illegal but maybe he was trying to time it but saw red and just went for it.

Lets not forget all the terrible cringy videos Rivera made leading up the fight, the suggestion that Bispings Australian wife has the clap plus all the phonecalls and shit Riveras team spewed on Bisping & family at the hotel. As I said I totally agree with the knee being illigal, BUT I was pretty happy to see Bisping telling Rivera to fuck off when he stumbled over to him all roughed up with a little sad face and outstretched hand.

Also Bisping didn't spit on anyone, he spat in their corner on the mat, big difference.
