Controversy surrounds BISPING, HAMILL fight

September 10, 2007

September 8, 2007.  London, England.  Following the much anticipated fight at UFC 75 between “The Ultimate Fighter” winner MICHAEL BISPING and MATT HAMILL, controversy has reared its head.  Bad blood existed long before Saturday night’s fight as many fans believe that if not for an injury, MATT HAMILL would have had a great chance to defeat BISPING at “The Ultimate Fighter” finale.  Ever since, HAMILL has called out BISPING for a match and finally got it at UFC 75.  HAMILL dominated the 1st rd and cut BISPING under each eye.  The 2nd round could have also been HAMILL’s but his fitness level started to break down.  BISPING was able to box his way throughout the 2nd and 3rd rounds and was able to pull out the win in his homeland of England.  BISPING’s end of fight comments were less than cordial, as a humble HAMILL maintained that he lost to BISPING “fair and square”.  One of the three judges had the fight 3 rounds to 0 in favor of HAMILL as fight fans are up in arms over the decision.  The best part of controversy within the mixed martial arts world is that is can always be resolved – inside the octagon.  It’s no longer a  matter of whether there’s a rematch … but a matter of when.

    I wanted Bisping to win, but there’s NO WAY he did. Hamill dominated the fight. I’m sick of all the bullshit defense for what most agree IS one of the crappiest MMA decisions in recent history. For Bisping to run his mouth the way he did after the fight was shameless. He should have been more humble toward an opponent who had just kicked his ass.

    I agree. Bisbing got his ass kicked and obviously it was in his home country. What a rip off UFC is just as crooked as boxing
