bispings-detached retinaOuch. The reports of Michael Bisping being rushed to the hospital for an eye injury look to unfortunately be true. What started off with Bisping feeling pain in his eye — has now worsened, proving to be a detached retina. The U.K. star is now expected to sit out until 2014 in order to heal the eye. Originally expected to take on Mark Munoz in his home country at UFC Fight Night 30, Lyoto Machida has switched opponents (original Rafael Natal) to take on Munoz in what may be a contenders match. Natal now receives Tim Kennedy in the headline bout of Fight for the Troops.

If you’re wondering where the pic came from, it is from his official Instagram (@MikeBisping). We wish Bisping a speedy recovery and look forward to his return next year.
