    Bisping’s resume speaks for itself when it comes to Hall of Fame credentials but the recently retired 39-year old British fighter would never campaign to receive that honor. In fact, Bisping says it would be an embarrassment to his career accomplishments if he started asking the UFC to put him into the Hall of Fame.

    “It’s not something I’ve necessarily thought about but it’s something a lot of people have said to me,” Bisping said about getting into the UFC Hall of Fame.
    “It’s not something I’m campaigning for or anything like that. That’s not something you campaign for. That’s embarrassing. It’s up to the UFC to recognize that. I’d like to think so, I’ve put the work in and I think I deserve it but that’s down to the UFC.”

    Campaigns by saying he won't campaign.

    Here's your HoF statue, Michael.

    I used to hate on Bisping back during the days when Hendo H bombed him into the next universe however that has changed and I have become somewhat of a fan of his.

    But yeah like others said he is campaigning without actually campaigning. He is being humbly cocky I say

    His win over rockhold and the ensuing salt is hof worthy imo but man is bisping an arrogant fuck, on the flip side at least he isn’t fake.

    That's like when he says, "I'm not making excuses or anything but I would beat Georges 9 times out of 10. But I'm not taking anything away from him, he won and was the better man that night, god bless him".

    It's as if someone asked him a question about it, rather than him just making a random isolated statement.

    Naaah, that definitely didn't happen.

    If Stephen Bonnar, Mask Lewis, and Matt Serra are in it, is it really a stretch of the imagination that Bisping can't get in?

    But that is hilarious.. He pretty much just nominated himself to be in there, classic Bisping

    Yeah, the bar is not set very high. Bisping won a title, TUF, had some very high profile fights, so he's in IMO. There are plenty others that deserve it.
