Marquardt wants SPITBING

The middleweight, who is 30-10-2, said that he wasn't exactly a fan of Bisping's in the past ("I always thought he was a little bit of an ***," he said), but that the recent post-fight incident during Bisping's UFC 127 fight with Jorge Rivera crossed the line. After the bout, which Bisping won via TKO, he walked over and spit towards Rivera's coaching team. According to Rivera's team, Bisping's spit hit boxing coach Matt Phinney. According to Bisping, he just spit in their general direction as a sign of his anger for several pre-fight videos they produced ridiculing him.

 

Marquardt said that despite the trash talk, Bisping was in the wrong for his actions, saying he went "two steps too far."

 

"The crap talking and whatever, that's one thing," he said. "Guys hype up fights. And even guys that are just like that naturally, I don't hold that against them. But the fact that he goes and spits in his opponent's corner? That's so disrespectful. That's not what a martial artist does and it's not what a sportsman does."

 

Of course, to have a chance at Bisping, Marquardt will have to get past the durable Miller, who is 13-4 with 1 no contest following a two-fight win streak. Miller's never been finished, even during a rough streak in which he went to the final bell with Chael Sonnen, Demian Maia and Michael Bisping in losing consecutive fights.

He should focus on the Miller fight. He had the chance to fight Mike ages ago and turned it down. I'm sure most fans (and the UFC for that matter) would prefer Sonnen, Belfort, Okami, or even Stann ahead of Nate 'the not so great' as a match up for Bisping.
