Michael Bisping is a bit upset that Hector Lombard is walking into the mix at middleweight after spending time in Bellator. The perennial UFC contender thinks Lombard has beaten a bunch of part time fighters while he has been fighting the best the UFC has to offer. According to an interview with MMADiehards.com;
“It does piss me off a little bit, you know? I’ve been slugging away in the UFC for six years now, fighting the best guys in the world and just because Hector Lombard’s been knocking out little part-time fighters who probably hold down jobs full-time and he’s been knocking out people that I haven’t got a clue who they are, I haven’t even heard of them, you know, while I’ve been knocking out the best fighters in the world and fighting the best consistently for six years and he’s going to come in from knocking out John the baker from around the corner and you know, he gets a title shot?”
Bisping is set to face Tim Boetsch this summer and if he can get past him he will have to wait in line or fight another top contender despite his impressive performance against Chael Sonnen in February in a losing effort.
