Peace! Bisping Wants Masvidal To End Bullsh*t Beef
If Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal has his way, former middleweight champion, Michael Bisping, will get slapped silly when the two cross paths at UFC on ESPN+ 5 this Sat. night (March 16, 2019) in London, England.
Bisping, unfortunately, has other plans.
It seems “The Count” is no longer interested in hotel lobby showdowns (like this one), instead preferring to squash their longstanding beef that started when the Brit disrespected Cuba several years back while trolling Yoel Romero.
“I hope I see him in London so I can just walk over and say, ‘Hey, listen, can we just end this bullshit?’” Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast (via MMA Fighting). “Because as I’ve said, I don’t know the guy! I don’t know him and he doesn’t know me. I’ve got no issue with him. I never had. Let’s see how he behaves in London. No doubt I’ll be seeing him around fight week. So let’s see how all that goes. If there’s another interaction, if he’s trying to start a fight with me in the lobby like he did in New York, and in Shanghai, and in London. [But] I think that ship has sailed.”
Maybe Bisping can apologize to Colby Covington while he’s at it.
Masvidal is paired off against local hero, Darren Till, in a welterweight clash that was booked to keep “The Gorilla” in the 170-pound title chase after suffering a lopsided loss to former division champion, Tyron Woodley, last September.
“Gamebred” recently snapped a three-fight winning streak by coughing up close decisions to Demian Maia and Stephen Thompson and after averaging three fights per year dating back to 2012, Masvidal sat out for all of 2018.
Forgive and forget? We’ll find out later this week.
