If you get more invested in bouts that have a ton of pre-fight drama tied to them, then you should be pretty, pretty excited to watch Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold go at it on November 8th. While often ‘beefs’ seem to be somewhat orchestrated, if the rivalry between Rockhold and Bisping is all by design, they deserve to be nominated for an Emmy right now.
In the latest edition of “Counterpunch” on FOX Sports, hosted by Jon Anik, Bisping explains how his ‘disagreement’ with Rockhold began several years ago. It all stems from a joke / claim Bisping made regarding a sparring session he had with Rockhold. According to “The Count”, it didn’t go so well for the former Strikeforce champ.
You can watch the entertaining exchange below. Bisping and Rockhold will throw down in the main event for UFC FN 55, which will take place in Sydney, Australia.
