Micheal Bisping Admits He is Crushed but Life Goes On

Former middleweight champion Micheal Bisping has admitted he is crushed inside following his UFC217 loss to returning Georges St-Pierre but remains certain that he is not overly deflated.

The event saw three different title change hands which included Bisping (30-8 MMA, 20-8 UFC) title, which he planned will be his second title defense in the pay-per-view headliner at Madison Square Garden in New York City but this didn't go as planned, as  returning welterweight legend Georges St-Pierre (26-2 MMA, 20-2 UFC) choked him out in the third round.

A very low Bisping after the fight told reporters “I’m proud of what I’ve achieved in this sport. I really am,”

“You can’t take that away from me. My kids are over there. They just said, ‘I thought you would be more pissed off.’ Of course I’m pissed off. I’m crushed inside. I am. But also at the same time you’ve got to realize what’s important in life. This is what I dedicate my life to. I do it for my children.

“I’m happy with what I’ve done. I’m crushed inside, but life goes on. Every time you fight one man is going to win, and one is going to lose. You can’t cry like a little (expletive). All respect to Georges. Well done. He beat me. I felt fantastic going in there tonight. I thought I would smoke him, and I didn’t, so well done.”

Despite how the fight unfolded, Bisping maintains, he wasn't shocked at the outcome of the fight, as he lost the first round, though winning the second, lost the third and the fight, knocked down with a big right hand then choked then till out.

“I didn’t win, ultimately that’s why we do it,” Bisping said. “Georges was the better man. I felt good in there. I just got clipped. It’s the way it goes. … Nothing surprised me other than that left hook that dropped me of course. That was a big surprise.”
