UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, Eddie Bravo, and many other mixed martial arts fighters, analysts, and personalities were in Las Vegas for the UFC 209 event and also the Fighters Only World MMA Awards that took place just before the weekend.
You may have heard about Bisping and Bravo’s argument that they got into after the awards event on Thursday night and video has surfaced of some of their exchange where the UFC middleweight champion is seen extremely upset.
It’s tough to hear exactly what is being said between the two but at one point during the video, you can hear Bravo tell Bisping, “I’m with you, man. I’m with you. I’m with you, man.”
Bisping with a cup in hand later tells Bravo, “You have no idea what you’re talking about.”
Bravo says, “Yeah, I don’t.”
“You don’t. No, you don’t,” Bisping replied.
“I’m just assuming,” Bravo said.
UFC veteran Ben Saunders gets in the mix and gets in between the two men to try and ease the situation.
“Hey, I’m trying to f**king give you props,” Bravo told Bisping. “I’m trying to give you props, man. I’m trying to give you props, man. I’m just trying to give you props, I’m not trying to talk shit.”
Bisping then has a change of heart and says, “No, I know, I know, I know,” and shakes Bravo’s hand.
“I got your back every time, man,” Bravo said. “Don’t turn it around, man.”
Interestingly, Michael Bisping showed up late on Friday to his press conference where he and his next opponent Georges St-Pierre hyped up their upcoming fight. St-Pierre accused Bisping of being drunk and said he smelled like alcohol during their face off.
