Michael Bisping took the microphone after weighing in on Friday for UFC Fight Night 84, and rather than address the crowd he turned directly to Anderson Silva to deliver some heated final words.
“This man is a cheat,” Bisping said. “This man is a fraud. And I will make you pay for your mistakes tomorrow night, my friend.
“All the needles in your ass, all the steroids, will not help you, you pussy.”
The two will step into the cage on Saturday at the O2 Arena in London, England, with their fight headlining the card on UFC Fight Pass.
Penick’s Analysis: Bisping’s unrelenting PED attacks on Silva have been coming since before he accepted the fight, as he wasn’t even sure he wanted that matchup anymore after Silva’s failed drug tests last year. Now that we’re just over 24 hours out from, it’s not surprising in the least to see him take that final opportunity to get in a few more shots. The follow up for Bisping has to be his biggest career performance on Saturday, otherwise all the talk means nothing.
