Micheal Bisping has stated on his podcast that he plans to have two more fights within the UFC before calling it a day on his MMA Career
The first ever Brit to hold Gold in MMA’s top organisation, is closing in on his retirement. After 11 years fighting in the UFC, 2018 looks to be the year ‘The Count’ will bow out. It also sounds like he has directed his focus away from GSP, claiming that it looks more likely he’ll fight the winner of Whittaker and Romero.
Speaking on his podcast he said “My next fight, I don’t know where it’s going to be. It’s probably going to be unfortunately not GSP,” Bisping said. “It’s probably going to be the winner of Whittaker and Romero. I don’t know where that fight’s going to be and I see myself winning that fight because I see Whittaker winning that fight and I see myself beating Whittaker. If Romero wins, I see myself beating him as well. But I firmly believe that it will be Robert Whittaker.”
“Win or lose that fight, I’ll probably have one more and I want that to be in London or Manchester or the UK. I want it to be in England. I want to have my last fight, I want to say farewell. The fans for me in England have treated me so well, they really have. The MMA fans out there have really embraced me as one of their own of course and it made a different in my career. So I want my last fight to be in England.”
Sitting on 20 wins in the UFC – most of any fighter, Bisping has had a career to be proud of. Having had a few lows on his journey, he finally reached his ‘destiny’ when he knocked out Luke Rockhold after accepting his first title fight within the UFC on only two weeks notice, making him the first Brit to win UFC gold thus far.
Whatever happens in his next two fights, he will hang his gloves up a UFC legend and we can only hope he gets his wish to have his last fight on British soil, infront of his own fans, where he has never been defeated, defending his title.
