Michael Bisping reveals he was assaulted in the street on Saturday

UFC legend Michael Bisping has revealed that he was assaulted on the streets of New Orleans this past weekend.

Bisping, to this day, is still considered by many to be the most successful mixed martial artist to come out of the United Kingdom – mainly due to his UFC middleweight title win back at UFC 199.

Of course, we all know his journey goes back much further than that, with his ascent to superstardom beginning when he first appeared on The Ultimate Fighter.

“I laughed and walked away”

Following his retirement a few years back we’ve seen Bisping make the transition over to the commentary desk where he does most of his work alongside his podcast. However, that doesn’t mean he isn’t still in incredible shape.

As it turns out, someone decided to pick a fight with ‘The Count’ on Saturday evening whilst he was on holiday with his family in New Orleans. 

“Was just assaulted  guy got in my face for filming on a public street.  I told him to go away and he punched me was literally so soft I laughed at him,So funny that someone that acts so tough hits like such a bitch, I laughed and walked away. Man I’m mature these days” He wrote on Twitter.

“I was literally laughing so hard at how pathetic the punch was I don’t think I could of hit him” He added.

For Bisping, he’ll want to enjoy the rest of his holiday before the build-up to UFC 264 and Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 3 begins.
