    UFC on Fox 2 Press Conference

    Post  Sheldan on Thu Dec 08, 2011 1:48 am

    Here is the video in full, the press conference starts at 0:19:30 so just skip to there:



    It was quite an entertaining press conference, although that would be expected with Chael Sonnen in attendance, who provided some quality lines as usual.

    Not a fan of the fact him and Bisping were sat next to each other and joking with one another, no doubt if they were to fight sometime in the future though they'll be sure to turn heel.

    Dana said that the winner of Bisping VS Maia will face the winner of Silva VS Sonnen/Munoz, WHAT!?!? First of all, a win for either guys over the other shouldn't give them a title shot, and even if it was a worthy win, they're then going to sit out for around 10 months? The winner of Bisping/Maia should face Belfort if he beats Rumble to determine the number 1 contender after Sonnen/Munoz. Not really sure where Stann goes from here, maybe Wanderlei next.

    The trash talk between Evans and Davis at the end was brilliant also.

    Don't think the comments Rashad made about the kiddy fiddler Penn state wrestling coach went down too well. I enjoyed it tho Rashad for what it's worth. Not sure Dana will especially as it was on the Fox network.

    Yeah was a bit weird! Also came across as though he'd thought of it a few days earlier and scripted it rather than Sonnen who just ad libs by the looks of it!

    Sonnen looks considerably bigger than Rashad.

    Woulkd seem logical, although Dana at this conference said the winner of Bisqping-Maia gets the winner of Silva-Sonnen/Munoz straight off.

    Yeah but Dana said a lot of things. Yushin Okami won about 8 number 1 contender fights before getting his shot.

    I think Bisping showed what a delusional fool he really is. Claiming he could beat any of the fighters there, when all bar Maia would destroy him and Maia really should tap him. And claiming he gave Miller a "3 round arse kicking" when he very clearly lost the first round and only came into the fight when Miller gassed.
