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.

Andrei Arlovski hit the headlines after defeating Antonio Silva quite efficiently. He was able to knock out the superstar with his vicious punching. It was a very important fight for him as he was up against all odds. The crowd was expecting an easy win for Antonio Silva and was mostly supporting him. But the underdog did not let this affect him. He played one of the most dominant matches of his life. The earlier match between the two had quite a different result. After that a lot has gone by. Silva failed one of the drug tests that were done on him and had been banned from competing in any professional game since then. His return to fighting did not prove o be a very successful outing either. Arlovski had himself also gone on a break but he seems to be a completely different fighter since his return to the professional circuit. His score is currently 2-0. The potential opponents in his next match might be Ben Rothwell or Stipe Miocic. Mark Hunt and Roy Nelson will also be up against one another. The winner shall be considered as one of the other potential opponents.
The Brazilian Crowd was not really kind to Arlovski but he earned a lot of respect without any doubt through his fighting skills. He was visibly delighted with his win which resulted in a dance. One could easily make ou the fact that he was overjoyed with the result. A lot of hardwork and passion had gone into the making of the man. He has witnessed the very highs and lows of fighting throughout his career. The six year hiatus was not a easy thing to deal with. But he seem sto have come back with a new energy and strength to fight.

Johnny Hendricks wants to build his long lasting legacy in the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC and he certainly hopes that former UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre is a part of it.
It has almost been a year since Hendricks suffered a controversial decision loss at the hands of Rush in the title fight and a lot has changed since then. GSP is no longer a part of the UFC roster and Hendricks is the reigning UFC Welterweight champion.
But Hendricks has made it clear that the failure to grasp the torch as the divisional champion from arguably the greatest fighter in the history of the sport still haunts him. Hendricks stated in an interview that he doesn’t hide the fact that he would love to fight Georges St. Pierre again, and a lot has changed since then and now.
That loss to GSP came in his first ever five round match and Hendricks stated that he is getting used to it now and will only get better with the more five round matches he fights. Ideally, he doesn’t prefer matches to drag on for so long but he is getting used to it if it does.
Merely a month after beating Hendricks, the Canadian announced that he was taking a hiatus from the sport and instead of getting a rematch with GSP, Hendricks was faced with 170 lbs. challenger Robbie Lawler in a match to crown the new champion for the title vacated by Rush.
But the fact that he didn’t get the chance to start his own legacy by defeating Georges St. Pierre, much like UFC Middleweight champion Chris Weidman did by beating Anderson Silva still hurts and haunts the big American, no matter how many defences he makes between now and the end of his career.
