Middleweight contender Michael Bisping (23-5) has lost two of his last three fights in the UFC. The skid has prompted him to make wholesale changes to his approach. The Brit feels backed into a corner and he’s ready to unleash the beast against Alan Belcher (18-7) at UFC 159 on April 27. He told ESPN he planned to fight with the natural aggression that saw him win many of his earlier bouts by TKO and KO.
“I need to get my animal back. I need to go back to being a hard-**** rather than a technician. I’m going to do that with Alan Belcher. Make no mistake, round one there will be no gameplan, I’m going in there to destroy him – simple as that. People say I have no knockout power. Believe me, I have. All my first ten fights were knockouts in the first round. But I was on pure adrenaline and aggression back then, and in some ways I’ve lost that. I need to get that back. I’ll train obviously, work on my boxing and all the rest of it, but mainly, I just want to be an animal and destroy this guy … A lot of stuff has to change. I want to be world champion and it’s not happening right now. So I’m willing to admit mistakes, I’m willing to admit I’ve allowed people around me to make mistakes, and I need to quit being a **** and be a man. I need to change.”
