GSP says Bisping should enjoy his time as champion, while it lasts.
Michael Bisping was late to his press conference with Georges St-Pierre, but once he arrived he immediately burst in with curse words and other insults towards his opponent. According to the long time welterweight champion, Bisping’s attempts at trash talk was “terrible” and embarrassing.
“I thought he would be absent from that press conference when it first started and he wasn’t there. And he started yelling at me,” GSP said on the MMA Hour. “You know, there are a lot of guys who are very good trash talkers in this game. Conor McGregor is one, Chael Sonnen is one, he’s an expert. And I always feel like I cannot get into a war of words with these guys, because first, English is not my first language, and I’m just not good at trash talking. I do my talking in the fight. I’m not a good talker, I’m a good fighter.
“But what I can say is this: I do not believe Michael Bisping is a good trash talker. I believe the best thing he did for me was to talk, because he embarrassed himself every time he opened his mouth. So he did the job for me. I didn’t even have to say anything.
“He’s not a good trash talker. He’s terrible at it. The more he talks, the more he embarrasses himself and the more he looks bad.”

St-Pierre said that he’s “glad” Bisping will net the biggest payday of his career on this bout, and that he “deserves it”. He also went on to say that the middleweight champion should enjoy his time at the top, because it won’t last for much longer.
“I don’t understand how come he’s such a very angry person,” St-Pierre said. “For a man who has the opportunity, and has everything he has in life, he should be happy. And he should enjoy it, the time [while it] lasts, because when I’m going to step in the cage with him, he’s going to lose everything, unfortunately for him.
“I think he has a complex, because people doubted him for all his life,” he said. “I think he has a mental complex. That’s why he’s thinking like that. But anyway, it doesn’t matter, because when I’m going to fight him, he’s going to see the difference in levels between he and I. You’re going to see the difference.”
