Eddie Bravo discusses his recent argument with UFC champ Michael Bisping.
During the World MMA Awards, video came out showing UFC champ Michael Bisping getting in a heated and expletive-filled argument with Eddie Bravo. The jiujitsu ace has since discussed how the confrontation happened on a recent appearance at Joe Rogan’s Fight Companion.
“Bisping is my friend,” Bravo explained. “People were like ‘were they going to fight?’ Not for one second did I think that a fight was going to break down.”
According to Bravo, Bisping was offended by one of his comments, and admitted that a few adult beverages have been ingested during the night as well.
“I said ‘he visually improves from fight to fight, and you can see it’, I’m sure he’s sick of hearing that. I was complimenting him, and I can see how he thought that implied he was subpar at one point,” he said. “He was like ‘I take offense to that man! I was always a bad ass since the Ultimate Fighter show.’ I understand where he’s coming from.
“We were trying to talk about fighting GSP. We were arguing, and he was getting kinda insulted. ‘I’m insulted when people say that!’ I’m sorry! I get it. I was trying to compliment you, but I see how you — I should’ve kept my mouth shut.”
By the end of that encounter, Bravo says cooler heads prevailed and Bisping even asked to train together so he can shore up his ground game before the Georges St-Pierre fight.
“He didn’t even remember, and he blacked out. He didn’t even remember,” Bravo laughed. “But we’re cool, he DM’d me on twitter and said ‘dude, sorry about last night.’”
