Get it? LOOKING for a way out?

Just in case you were about to accept Michael Bisping for the loveable, accented villain he’s always wanted be, get ready to step back onto the pure hate train.  In case you missed the post-fight press conference, Bisping seemed to be pretty respectful of his downed opponent, all things considered:

Leading into the fight obviously there was a lot of talk.  I have respect for Alan Belcher.  He’s been around a long time… he’s a very good opponent.  I’ve just gotta do what I’ve gotta do to prepare mentally, and try (to) put doubt in his mind, and that’s all it was.  I’ve got nothing against him, nothing but respect for him.  To be honest trash talk isn’t what’s important.  What’s important is going out there putting on good performances, and ultimately winning fights.

But he couldn’t just let it rest there, and came out with some classic Count:

I could read all his movements, he seemed quite slow to me…  I think, you know, he laid on the floor a little bit, I think, maybe.  Who knows?  I think maybe he looked for a way out.  But I was happy with everything.

Unfortunately Belcher wasn’t at the press conference to address what Bisping said about looking for a way out.  You know, because he was at the hospital trying to find out if his fight career was over, or if he’d be blind in one eye for the rest of his life.
