Michael BispingUFC middleweight Michael Bisping will be disciplined by the UFC after spitting at Jorge Rivera’s coaches following a second-round TKO of Rivera in the co-main event of Sunday’s UFC 127 event in Sydney, Australia.

UFC President Dana White told MMAFighting on Monday that Bisping will face a fine and/or suspension following calls for punishment from Rivera’s team.

Bisping has also drawn criticism for an illegal knee in the opening round of the fight, but has downplayed both incidents while admitting to being angered by a series of videos released by Rivera leading up to the bout.

The specifics of Bisping’s punishment have not been disclosed and may not be released by the UFC.
