UFC Fight Night 48’s Michael Bisping Makes Call-Out

ufc fight night 48

Michael Bisping took the opportunity presented to him that many other fighters tend to ignore.

Following a dominating win over Cung Le at UFC Fight Night 48 Saturday, “The Count” called out his next opponent.

“There’s an idiot called Luke Rockhold,” Bisping said. “I think he has the hots for me to be honest.

“You want it? Let’s dance.”

Bisping and Rockhold have traded words for over a year. Rockhold, a former Strikeforce champion, was in attendance at the event and saw first-hand what the Brit can do.

After landing a clear jab to the right eye of Le that left him bleeding, Bisping continued to attack. Eventually, both of Le’s eyes were almost completely swollen shut and Bisping landed a knee that dropped him. A few follow-up punches on the ground and the fight was over.

Earlier this year, Bisping returned from an eye injury, falling to Tim Kennedy. Rockhold has scored finishes of Tim Boetsch and Costas Philippou already this year, and has been rumored for a fight with Lyoto Machida.
