Michael Bisping’s wife Rebecca Bisping defended Jake Paul despite the tough exchanges he’s recently had with Paul on social media.
Previously, Jake Paul shared his ‘hit list’ containing many athletes who have a potential to be his next opponent. Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping was on that list. Bisping then reacted to the call out which prompted many harsh exchanges.
Despite Bisping’s beef with Jake Paul, Bisping’s wife recently came to his defense
when he was being insulted by boxing promoter Eddie Hearn.
Bispings were talking about Jake’s recent callout on his podcast recently. Rebecca Bisping then criticized Eddie Hearn’s dismissal of Paul as a boxer.
“Everyone stop with the Jake Paul hate, I think it’s a bit silly now. Imagine how you would feel if someone said that to you when you were trying your hardest to become what you are today. If someone like Dana White said that to you, how would you feel?” Rebecca said.
“No matter how rich or successful he is, I think we need to humanize him for a minute. I know he takes a lot but he is a human at the end of the day and we need to take his feelings into consideration.”
Rebecca believes Jake Paul receives too much hate for being a loud mouth – which is a fairly common trait for professional athletes.
She added, “No matter how rich or successful he is, I think we need to humanize him for a minute. I know he takes a lot but he is a human at the end of the day and we need to take his feelings into consideration.”
However, the 43-year-old Bisping still believes that Paul is at fault.
“He’s going around disrespecting people, he’s talking a lot of s***. He’s trying to make a mockery out of people who are retired, he’s talking s*** so fair game. You’ve got to expect s*** talk back, that’s the way it goes. S*** flows both ways.” Bisping said.
