UFC on FX 7 headliner, Michael Bisping shared via his Twitter today that he has started his weight cut (along with the help of a legal weight cutting aid) of twelve pounds in the wake of Saturday’s middleweight main event against Vitor Belfort
Here is Bisping’s tweet, asking for some much needed luck in making a healthy cut:
The UFC on FX 7 card takes place in Ibirapuera Arena in Sao Paulo, Brazil. With a win, Bisping has been promised a title shot against Anderson Silva.
The two middleweight superstars shared a heated exchange at today’s press conference to promote the event. Belfort touched Bisping’s face during a staredown to which Bisping responded with a slap to Belfort’s arms and some choice words that we’ve come to expect from Bisping when his emotions are on high.
The two have been vocal adversaries of one another and things only worsened during the past few days of media coverage including at the open workouts when the fans got into the action.
Hopefully the weight cut leaves Bisping healthy enough to come in 100% tomorrow to level the playing field.
For the sake of his health and tomorrow’s fantastic main event, I can speak for the whole BJPENN.com staff in wishing Bisping the best of luck in his weight cut.
