Never let it be said that UFC middleweight Michael Bisping doesn't have a sense of humor.
A few weeks back, Bisping's opponent at UFC 159, Alan Belcher, offered up a bet that said if Bisping could knock out the Mississippi-born fighter in the first round of their bout, he'd have to get a tattoo of the British flag on his chest. If Bisping lost, he'd in turn have to get the same Johnny Cash tattoo that Belcher sports on his left arm.
When that bet fell on deaf ears, Belcher then found the support of former Alabama defensive end and current Cincinnati Bengal Wallace Gilberry, who offered up his Rolls Royce worth $300,000 if Bisping could beat his friend at UFC 159.
Well, on Wednesday Bisping finally responded with a video of his own.
Needless to say Bisping isn't buying into Belcher's gambling game ahead of their showdown at UFC 159, and responded in kind following the video 'bet' he was wagering.
"You realize how stupid you look Belcher, you sat with Wallace Douche-berry in the back of the Phantom making these big stupid bets. It's pointless," said Bisping. "April 27, UFC 159, you're getting knocked out. You know it, I know it, we all know it."
At the very least, Bisping and Belcher are creating the best comedy heading into UFC 159 in April before the two middleweights finally square off in the co-main event taking place in New Jersey on April 27. The main event that night pits UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones against fellow Ultimate Fighter coach Chael Sonnen.
