Michael Bisping, widely known for notorious tongue-wagging, was recently seen exchanging vigorous verbal barbs with next opponent Rockhold (Luke) at an Australia media event.
The trash-clad exchange started when the two famous MMA fighters came face to face, surrounded by huge gang of reporters & other participants at the event.
“You are pathetic”, Bisping started lashing out at Luke in his distinct Manchester accent & expensive jacket while the other one was being led away at the heated scene by others. “Control yourself, dude”, Luke replied.
The gist of the smack was mostly on who were the fighters that the other fighter had actually been able to knock out in his MMA career. It led a steady stream of rapid threats from both the parties towards each other continuing with- “I’m gonna knock you out.”
When the very well-coiffed Luke demanded knockout bona-fides from the opponent, Michael tartly replied that he was just done with knocking out Luke’s boyfriend a couple of weeks back. It refers to Le (Cung), who takes training along with Luke at California’s American kickboxing Academy.
“Yeah, I did see it & I wasn’t really impressed”, pat came the reply from Rockfold.
Post the comment, an infuriated Michael leaned back & waved fingers towards Rockhold, screaming “woo!” loud in a very sarcastic tone.
Bisping has got fifteen knockout wins to his credit which is 5x bigger than Luke’s 3. Michael’s triumph over Cung came by a great TKO succeeded by a sharp knee from clinch in 4th round of the fight at UFC 48 Fight Night. Luke’s last knockout victory over Costas Philippou came from his dashing body kick in the 1st round of the fight past January.
“The most important thing is that I am going to knock you out on 8th November. It’s coming”, warned Bisping.
