I love a good verbal joust, but it’s even better with visual aids!
Jorge Rivera and Michael Bisping have been having a spat leading into their fight at UFC 127. Rivera fired the first shot when he and his team from Ranger Up, a fight wear company that supports the US Military and fighters who are involved in those organizations, made a video mocking Bisping’s fighting prowess and likening him to lady loins. Bisping wrote a rebuttal in a newspaper in England, saying that Rivera has fought nobodies and, to paraphrase from GSP, can’t ‘andle his riddum.
Ever the showman, Rivera has produced another video mocking his British rival by having a friend of his play the part of “The Count”, as well as making a few self-deprecating jokes along the way. When fake Bisping struggles with a shake weight while Rivera muses on the undoings of the ancient Mayans, you know you have internet gold. This video is not all fun and games though, as towards the end Rivera makes some factual statements about the match and Bisping’s record.
