UFC middleweight Luke Rockhold has been trading shots with Michael Bisping via social media lately. Bisping is booked to fight Cung Le at UFC Macau next month, however Rockhold does not have a fight booked, and as a result is campaigning for a fight with Bisping pretty aggressively.
His latest campaign took a bit of a low blow at Bisping who had to undergo eye surgery earlier this year. Rockhold said he was going to take out Bisping’s good eye. He spoke with BleacherReport:
“If Bisping squeaks by (Cung Le), I’ll take him, take out his other eye. Bisping came after me out of nowhere. I didn’t know where it came from this time. Even on ‘UFC Tonight,’ he went on a rampage talking about me and teenagers, pool parties and my little pinky toe, I don’t know. I heard all of this stuff on Twitter about it and I started gathering all the information because I didn’t want to respond too quick until I saw what he said. I had to obviously give him my piece of mind and settle it. It’s not my fault the UFC hires me to go host a pool party and they don’t choose Bisping. The Bisping fight? That would be amazing. I would love to shut his mouth and get paid for it. I can’t imagine better things in the world, that would be nice.”
