Several weeks ago Chris Weidman was forced out of his UFC 199 rematch with Luke Rockhold due to a neck injury. After it was revealed that Jacare Souza had a torn meniscus, and would be unable to fight, the UFC chose Michael Bisping to step in on short notice and fight Rockhold.
Despite being injured, Weidman talked trash about Bisping, calling him the easiest opponent in title fight history. That didn’t sit too well with Bisping, who fired back in an interview with MMAFighting:
“Chris Weidman is a very, very bitter individual for somebody that spouts on about Jesus,” Bisping said. “He just needs to take a step back and go read the Bible some more. Take heed to his own words. Don’t be bitter. He hurt himself, simple as that. It had nothing to do with me. I didn’t hurt his neck. Did I hurt his neck? What the f*ck has that got to do with me, pal?”
Bisping then decided to take some shots at the middleweight division as a whole, saying:
“Two years, two weeks, two months, two days,” Bisping said. “I don’t care. Half of this UFC roster are pussies. They wouldn’t take this fight. ‘Jacare’ wouldn’t take this fight. It makes me sick. I’ll fight anyone, any time, any place. I just proved that. I took a fight on two weeks notice. I’m gonna walk off a movie set, I’m gonna walk into the Octagon, I’m gonna take Luke Rockhold’s belt. He’s gonna lie on the floor, he’s gonna wake up looking at the stars [and say], ‘Fuck! This guy just beat me on two weeks notice.’”
