UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping is as tough as humans come. ‘The Count’ was known for his time in the UFC, where he has been seen exhibiting some unbelievable hard-as-nails attitude. Who would forget his detached retina against Vitor Belfort back in 2013? And trash-talking wise he is second to none.
Michael Bisping who currently works as a commentator and an analyst for the UFC recently took to Twitter to share an incident where he was attacked by a random stranger on the streets. Bisping claimed that a guy had asked him to go away for filming on a public street. Bisping denied, and hence he was punched by the guy.
However, Bisping claimed that the punch was so soft that he laughed at him. ‘The Count’ also claimed that he has become much matured these days.
“Man I’m mature these days” – Michael Bisping
Bisping wrote, “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.”
Bisping was a world-class fighter during his heydays. It has been 4 years since he announced his retirement. But that doesn’t take away the fact that he wouldn’t be able to throw a punch now. The Brit could have pieced the stranger up in seconds and handed his head on a platter. But, he chose not to do that. Kudos to Bisping for staying calm and level-headed.
Had the guy probably known who Bisping was, he wouldn’t have messed around with ‘The Count’.
Bisping also revealed later that the guy had no idea who he was. He wrote, “He had no idea, just some random dude.”
Well, the guy must count himself lucky that it wasn’t the Bisping of the old!
