UFC Fight Night: Sydney media call featuring UFC middleweights Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping. The card emanates from Sydney, Australia in two weeks and features the culmination of a bitter, two-year feud between top 10 ranked middleweight contenders Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping in the main event.
Rockhold said: “I simply don’t like Bisping. This all started when I went down to help him with some sparring even though I was carrying an injury and out of shape. Afterwards he thanked me for helping out – but then went on national television and rubbished me. Believe me, he got 10% of me in that session, and I will make him pay for disrespecting me on TV.”
Bisping said: “I made an off-the-cuff remark while trying to be funny on TV. I said it with a laugh and a smile, and I apologized and said it was just a joke, but this guy simply takes himself far too seriously to get over it. Luke has no sense of humor, unless you count going out in public dressed like a teenager. But, either way, I kicked his arse in sparring and I will kick his arse in the Octagon.”
UFC Fight Night 55 goes down on November 5th from the Allphone Arena in Sydney, Australia .
