Michael Bisping comments while on “UFC Tonight”
Michael Bisping comments on some interesting messages he receved on Twitter from the Middleweight number one contender Chael Sonnen.
“The thing is, to be honest, direct messages on Twitter, it’s personal, it’s private and I think it would be inappropriate to divulge that message. But, leave it to me to be inappropriate.”
“The message said: ‘You are not hurt and we’re re-matching. If it isn’t real, send me a code tweet with the word ‘Lad’ in it.’ And, meanwhile, I was sitting in the doctor’s office thinking he is scared to fight me again.”
“Then another tweet came through later and it said, ‘Alright, conspiracy theory over. Get well soon.’ So, ya know, ‘Planet Chael’ strikes again!”
Bisping received the direct messages while in a consultation detailing his surgery before he went under the knife. ‘The Count’ says he is set to have the surgery today Wednesday June 12, 2012. The procedure involves removing loose bodies floating around in his knee as well as the repair of a torn meniscus.
If all goes well Bisping could be back in training within three to four weeks around the same time as UFC 148 : Silva vs. Sonnen.
