Bisping probably blew his chance with ESPN.

    The same Disney that allowed Michael Jackson to groom his victims at their parks? Hey.. Bisping's one eye is in danger of not reading a teleprompter.

    All Bisping needs to do is say "Fuck Trump" and ESPN will hire him instantly

    He needed to better cover that up, and then respond and say X person at ESPN just told him this in the hall

    He went over the line though, it was embarrassing watching Bisping engaging in trash talk like he was promoting a fucking fight while being an ANALYST.

    I didn't think it was that bad at all. Seemed tongue in cheek mostly. Both guys know what they're doing. I highly doubt Colby's feelings were hurt that Bisping took away from his "special moment."

    I hate the times we live in sometimes, where people want to call for a guy to get fired, fined, punished, etc. for one small incident like this. Always a witch hunt. Bisping is entertaining, and since Colby is a huge tool, I'm totally fine with how he acted. It's not like Bisping is sitting there roasting every fighter they interview. Colby had it coming.

    They started pulling him from major cards because he gets out of control and lacks professionalism

    Jeebus, I pull for her. She seems to be a nice kid who has good intentions.

    But DAMN she is painful to watch in a commentary role. A deer in the headlights. Not ready for prime time, or any time. Sounds as if she has not one original idea in her pretty little head.

    didn't someone (Kenny?) say that they are UFC employees, not FOX employees?

    my understanding is that with the UFC retaining production control in the ESPN deal they will continue to decide who is on the desk and booth for every broadcast, no?

    I like a liberal helping of guac on my nachos. Is that your meaning? I would be pissed if the helping of guac was non-liberal. I would try to get someone fired for that shit.

    Neverland Ranch was not a Disney Park.

    But it was near Santa Barbara, where Ranch Dressing was invented!

    Oh, okay.

    So you’re just a mad Colby fan.

    Colby was being a prick. He set the tone for that interview. Bisping just happens to spend a lot of time in that tone, so he was prepared.

    Bisping also very explicitly did not diminish Colby’s victory. Colby came in with a chip on his shoulder, convinced that everyone is hunting him. As if he were some sort of a witch. They tried to talk about his performance, his career, but Colby wasn’t havin’ none of that. Just the same ol’, “Me vs. Everyone Else” Colby.

    This was nothing. You’re not going to be able to drum up enough support for this to be a thing.

    Bisping will be fine.

    Guys like Woodley + Kenny Florian can at least appear to be articulate and professional so I understand why they are there.

    DC and bisping are semi-professional but they are Dana's boys so they're in.

    Waterson I can't understand. It's not the first time they've pushed her on TV either. I've seen her at weigh in or post fight and it feels like she just wants to deliver a line and pass the attention to someone else. Very awkward. Maybe she's in because she's got that asian hotness all the white boys crave haha
