UFC middleweight contenders Mark Munoz and Michael Bisping will be facing off in the main event of UFC Fight Night 30, which takes place on October 26 Phones 4u Arena in Machester England, and the trash talk between the two fighters has already began to heat up.
You can always expect Bisping to run his mouth about his opponent as the fight draws closer and he did immediately, but Munoz fired back by taking a shot at Bisping’s punching power.
“Bisping has already been talking, I know. I was at my camp doing 10 days of an intensive wrestling camp with a bunch of wrestlers, over 300 of them. My phone was just blowing up. People were texting me and tweeting me all this stuff about Bisping talking a lot of smack about me,” Munoz said. “But that stuff doesn’t bother me. I show my talk inside the Octagon.
“He was saying he was going to beat me into depression and if I was depressed, I’d go into more depression. The fact of the matter is, he has pillows for fists. He hasn’t knocked anybody out and he says he’s gonna knock me out? He hasn’t knocked anybody out. It’s going to be like a pillow fight when I fight him. He’s going to have pillows and I’m going to have hammers.”
This isn’t the first time that an opponent has knocked Bisping’s punching power and it certainly won’t be the last.
There is no denying that Munoz is correct when he says there is a major difference in punching power and it will likely show in the cage. When you add in Munoz’s much stronger wrestling, this could turn out to be a nightmare match up for the British fighter in front of his home crowd.
