Michael Bisping wants to get back inside the Octagon as soon as possible and compete again after defeating Alan Belcher recently.

First, though, “The Count” will undergo neck surgery to help with a condition he has called stenosis. Bisping confirmed his plans on FUEL TV.

“I have a trapped nerve and it’s causing atrophy, which is muscle loss and weakness in my right arm,” he said. “It’s a minor thing (the surgery). Well, it’s neck surgery, so as minor as that can be, but it’s a routine procedure.”

Bisping, who rebounded from a loss to Vitor Belfort earlier this year by defeating Belcher via technical decision, believes he’ll only be out two-to-three weeks.
