Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping got into a heated exchange of words Thursday.
The incident happened during their open workout session.
They exchanged warm pleasantries. But all of a sudden Bisping made a comment on viagra which kind of ignited the whole thing.
From thereon, Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping took jabs at each other. Consequently, people had to intervene and separate them.
Anderson Silva was suspended for taking performance enhancing drugs. But the fact cannot be ignored that he is one of the best fighters in MMA history.
However, Bisping feels that Silva has cheated his whole career, reports MMA Fighting.
According to Bisping, Silva has cheated in his career otherwise, “he would have the confidence and peace of mind to say no, I am Anderson Silva, I achieved all these things and I don’t need to cheat. And he didn’t do that, and that’s because he was cheating his whole career.”
Calling Anderson a great fighter, Bisping then said: “Listen, Anderson is a great fighter, achieved many, many things, but the fact of the matter is, he tested positive for performance enhancing drugs in his last fight,” Bisping said.
“Probably the first time he had been tested, that’s what he said — his words not mine — assuming to lead one to believe he was cheating his whole career. Shame on him, how he calls himself a martial artist and used performance enhancing drugs.”
“Look at him in PRIDE,” Bisping added. “He weighed in at 168 pounds. He know walks around 40 pounds heavier. Do the math.”
Bisping had long wanted a fight with Silva and it has been on his bucket-list fight.
“At the end of the day, it was a bucket-list fight,” Bisping said.
“It was one I wanted a long time Of course its bittersweet, he’s no longer the champion. It’s nice to have on my resume that I fought Anderson Silva and the UK would see that. Fantastic opportunity.”
