Bisping probably blew his chance with ESPN.

    He's got personality, intelligence, and is entertaining, seems like he's pretty good for the job. Also I have no sympathy for Colby in this situation, if you're gonna dish it out, you got to expect to take it too.

    As much as a troll Skip is, even he understands how to deal with a guest who attacks him.

    That's true. They don't like hiring leftovers anyway. But I can see Anik and the two DC's making their way over there.

    Disney wants to keep the Count around, for an eventual remake of the Popeye movie.

    big fan of Bisping

    but i thought it was over the top too and unprofessional

    though i did enjoy him tearing into colby

    this has always been a problem
    another reason why i have always said no active fighter should ever do commentary

    it's pathetic
    too many bias noobs

    It's not about sympathy. It's about being a professional journalist/commentator. A one eyed fighter who slurps and mumbles when he talks, and calls athletes pricks on live television, and tries to diminish their victories? Yeah, that's not going on ESPN. Sorry. You know how many people have been fired from ESPN for much less?

    I have no clue why they put the karate hottie in as a commentator...just to add a cute face in the mix? Cause it's very obvious she's not skilled in that department...

    This. Chael does it to promote and knows his place within the business. Bisping just does it because his ego is flaring up.

    I don’t like Bisping the fighter, but I’ve really come around on Bisping the commentator. He’s interesting and entertaining and with Dana White as a backdrop, anyone can look professional. No way ESPN doesn’t scoop him up.

    Im too lazy to look it up right now. But Dan Lebatard went hard on Chael Sonnen (about lying about salary and such). ESPN isn't going to care that he was ride back to Colby.
