Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping, the UK’s first UFC champion has been discussing his future plans, with retirement around the corner he wants to go out having had the biggest fights possible. According to Bisping he is targeting two more fights then calling it a day.
He told Sirius XM Rush,” I’m at the tail end of my career. I think everybody knows that. It’s not like I have a huge career ahead of me. I’ve got a huge career behind me. That is the plan two more wins and sayonara, buddy. We’ll see but that is the plan right now. Plans change. That would be a perfect scenario for me.”
Bisping has been calling for the biggest money fights possible, Georges St-Pierre, Nick Diaz having been mentioned although the most likely fight will be against Yoel Romero.
” I don’t see what’s controversial with this statement at all. I said I want to be a part of the biggest fights possible. Whether that’s Yoel Romero, whether that’s Georges St-Pierre, whether that’s Jacare (Souza) or Anderson Silva, I just want to be a part of the biggest fight possible and earn the most money and that didn’t go down too well with some people and I really don’t see why that offends anybody or pisses anybody off.” Bisping said.
” The biggest fight possible and the biggest fight card possible. I want to be in a big event, I want to be on a big card. Is that too much to as? I’ve been here forever doing this.”
Bisping is currently injured which is delaying his return to the cage.
” I am scheduled for knee surgery tomorrow. Dana (White) offered me a couple of fights and I was hoping that the treatment I was having on my knee would be successful.” He explained. ” I had some PRP (platelet rich plasma) where they spin the plasma in your blood and I was hoping that would work but I’ve got a torn meniscus, I’ve got loose bodies floating inside there, I’ve got some small fractures in my bone.
” I’ve got a lot of stuff going on so I’ve got to go under the knife tomorrow so I’m not looking forward to that.”
