We need to be cherishing these moments with Michael Bisping, because it won’t be long before he’s not around anymore.
I am, of course, not saying anything disparaging about his abilities. He’s the champ, a title earned by knocking out Luke Rockhold when no one – especially not Rockhold – gave him a chance. The Brit is certainly one of the best.
But he’s also one of the most veteran fighters in the Octagon these days. He won TUF back when that was a new and cool thing to do, and he’s played the role of coach, FOXSports commentator, and drunken spokesman nicely in all his years of UFC service. No one does this sport forever, and we’ve gotten way longer than “forever” from the man.
Bisping sat down for an in-depth convo on the The Exchange, which will be released on Fight Pass. Watch it if you can, or at least check out the preview below.
