UFC 120 – Michael Bisping: “Akiyama’s at Jacksons MMA, I guess he’s gonna try and hug me to death then”

August 31, 2010 All MMA News, UFC  Comments 

UFC middleweight contender, Michael Bisping has fired a verbal shot across the bows of his opponent at UFC 120, Yoshihiro Akiyama and renowned MMA coach, Greg Jackson, saying he’s preparing to be hugged to death when the pair meet in London, England.

Posting via his Twitter page, Bisping said:

“great days training finished, akiyamas at jacksons mma, I guess hes gonna try and hug me to death then.”

Bisping is said to be two wins away from a shot at the title after getting back to winning ways against Dan Miller in May. As for Akiyama, he’s looking to rebound from a third round submission defeat to Chris Leben in July, interestingly someone Bisping already holds a win over.
