Bisping To Make Commentary Debut On TNCS
After officially retiring, Michael Bisping has landed his first post-fighter gig, as an MMA color commentator.
As reported by MMAJunkie, Bisping will call the action along with Brendan Fitzgerald for the Tuesday Night Contender Series event set for June 12th in Las Vegas.
Bisping, who has been a studio analyst for FOX’s UFC coverage, will provide commentary for the first four events of the second season of Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, splitting duty with Paul Felder, who is preparing for James Vick on July 14th at UFC Boise.
