Perhaps you’ve noticed that in recent years, Michael Bisping’s eye is a wreck. It doesn’t remotely look like the other one, and close ups reveal a whole lot of blackness where there should be nice, healthy white. Well, that’s because he had a detached retina, and subsequent surgeries have only helped so much.
And now we know the person to blame for it all: cheater Vitor Belfort.
As per BloodyElbow:
We all know the dangers of this sport. I mean, we’re trying to knock each other out. I’ve been left permanently disfigured, if you will, from my fight with Vitor Belfort. Vitor Belfort head kicked me and that’s what caused my detached retina. Since then, I’ve had five surgeries, and my eye is never going to look the same again. That was one of the reasons why I said I was never fighting anybody else with a steroid history.
It was extremely satisfying to watch a deflated (i.e., TRT-less) Belfort get smashed by Chris Weidman. But even greater satisfaction awaits if and when Belfort rematches those he beat while on the sauce.
I hope those rematches happen at some point. Belfort must pay for what his cheating has wrought.
