It's over brother.
I've never been a big Michael Bisping fan but I would be the first to acknowledge that his fighting skills are well above average. However, every time he comes up against a real contender he loses.
In the build up to this fight he said something which I thought implied that if he (Bisping) won (actually I think he said "when") that would put paid to Kennedy's hope for a title shot. If that was a correct assumption (whether on Bisping's part or mine); where does that leave Michael Bisping?
That's not a good thing though because Mike and his carpet carrying style still wants the title.
Bispings biggest problem has always been his lack of KO power, top tier fighters are happy to walk through his shots knowing it will allow them to deliver theirs without much worry, mid tier fighters he can use his footwork to pick off, sadly his ceiling has always been determined by that lack of power when coming up against more skilled opponents.
Was hard to watch tbh. he just didn't look himself for whatever reason, shame tho
I see this as a James Goyder-level lack of judgement from GAD
Should Michael Bisping consider retirement after Tim Kennedy defeat?
He's been a great representative for UK MMA, especially at a time when it was looked down upon when compared with other counties & really opened the door for a lot of other UK MMA fighters to get their chance in the Octagon.
Always felt he's looked good against those he should beat, but struggled & often lost when put in with the top guys in the division.
No shame in that, still had a great career & unfortunately not everyone gets to be champion. Still won TUF & mainevented several shows and think he still has saome good fights available to him, sadly i think talk of a title shot has to be forgotten about.
I can't understand why anyone who has had a detached retina would want to continue competing in any sport where there is a good probabiility that you will be hit very hard near your eye
