Bisping Wants Final Fight In Liverpool
Michael Bisping has made it known that he wants one more fight inside the octagon.
On his Believe You Me podcast, the former UFC middleweight champion, is looking at May 27th in Liverpool as his professional swansong.
“UFC, I’m available,” Bisping said. “If you want me on that card, you got my number. … That’s a nice retirement fight. Liverpool. Northwest of England. That’s where I’m from.”
Since taking back to back losses in less than a month, Bispinghas openly pondered if this is the end of his career. The 39 year old would be stopped twice back in November of 2017, the first was when he lost his middleweight title by submission to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 217, the second a crushing first round knockout at UFC Shanghai to Kelvin Gastelum.
And while talks for a final fight at UFC London fell through, Liverpool seems like the place he wants to have his final fight and “bugger off.”
Bisping claims that he has given the UFC a list of potential names, and is waiting for the matchmakers to come back to him.
“I spoke to the UFC already, I’m playing a little game here,” Bisping said. “I said to the UFC, ‘Throw some names my way.’ We’ll see. So we’ll see what they come back with.”
