Michael Bisping maybe be nursing an eye injury back to health, but that hasn’t stopped him from keeping his good eye on Tim Kennedy.

Kennedy has been fairly vocal in recent days about fighting “The Count”, even going so far as to say that Bisping would “chicken out” of a fight against Kennedy. This has drawn the ire of Bisping, who has always been one of the better self-promoters (and trash talkers) in the UFC:

Bisping has also claimed that Kennedy is pulling a “Sonnen,” by trying to talk his way into a profitable matchup:

Bisping went even further with the trash talk, and said that a match with Kennedy would be similar to his match with Jorge Rivera, where Bisping won by second round TKO. Controversy ensued when Rivera’s camp claimed that Bisping actually spit at them after the finish, amongst other violations of sportsmanship.
