A now infamous story was told by Michael Bisping about knocking Luke Rockhold out in a sparring session. Rockhold called out Michael Bisping on the validity of the story and in the process really made the Brit mad. Since the fight was made both men have been verbally jabbing the other trying to get a rise out of them. On October 28th there was a pre-fight conference call for their November 8 clash at UFC Fight Night 55 where Rockhold sounded calm and collected, but Bisping obviously wasn’t buying the facade. Michael’s temper has always been an issue and if you don’t believe us watch his rivalry and then fight with Jorge Rivera. Dirty fighting and an eventual spitting incident capped that one off in style.

Bisping wasted no time on the call and let this fly,

Allow me to shed some light on the situation, because Luke, I’m not sure he’s aware that it’s a f**king conference call so he’s supposed to talk and try to be a little bit eloquent and get your side of the story over. Luke, I don’t know you, I don’t care for you. We haven’t shared a single proper conversation, so you’re basing your facts, or what you presume as facts, on absolutely nothing, on fresh air. We’ve had one conversation of the sparring match in question that everybody talks about. You don’t know me, you don’t know me as a person, so kiss my fucking ass, you lanky piece of shit. I’ll see you in Australia, you asshole. I’m going to put it all to bed then. 

Bisping lost a very lackluster fight to another former Strikeforce stand out Tim Kennedy. Rockhold soundly defeated Kennedy to defend his Strikeforce championship and that has to eat at “The Count” up. On November 8 they will meet and the score will finally be settled.

Bisping did return to his usual well spoken form and had some more words for Luke.

Okay, it’s clearly obvious that if you’ve been analyzing me, you don’t have a psychology degree, so, quit your amateur philosophy. Listen, I love fighting, I truly love it. That’s why I do it. Nobody puts a gun to my head and makes me fight. I don’t do it out of necessity and I don’t do it because I have to do it, for the money or anything like that. I choose to. I truly love doing this. I’ve been doing this since I was eight years old. At eight years old, I first walked into a jiu-jitsu gym and at the end of it, we put the gloves on and started boxing and that is what set my imagination on fire and it kept me going to the gym every single time. That’s why I always show up in great shape for my fights because I love to spar. Sparring is my favorite part of this. I never shy away from any challenges. I love fighting, I fell alive when I do it. it puts a smile on my face and i was put on this planet to be a fighter. The guy is clutching at straws, at best, with that comment.
