Luke Rockhold, Tim Kennedy Comment On Michael Bisping’s Loss

Michael Bisping was on the cusp – again – of competing for the UFC middleweight title, but could not clear the final hurdle.

Bisping fell to Vitor Belfort Saturday night at UFC on FX 7, ending his run at a match with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

“The Count,” who is never afraid to speak his mind, had to expect his fellow fighters to comment on the loss – and they did.

Both Luke Rockhold, the last Strikeforce 185-pound champion, and Tim Kennedy made mention of the match on Twitter late Saturday night after Bisping was stopped by Belfort.

Both Rockhold and Kennedy have signed with the UFC after the closing of Strikeforce, though neither has a match lined up. Rockhold did post that he is ready to go whenever the UFC calls his name.
