Former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman and current UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping recently had a little spat on Twitter.
Weidman now wants to deliver a slap to the face of Bisping for the comments the British fighter made about his father during the social media spat.
“The gloves are off with him,” Weidman said on The MMA Hour. “He ripped up a Cuban flag right in (Yoel) Romero’s face between rounds during the guy’s fight for a championship (at UFC 213), so the guy doesn’t care about anything. And then right away, I do the cross-eyed thing, he comes right at my father, he comes at my family. He can say anything he wants about me, he can talk about how ugly I am or anything about my face or my body or whatever, or my career. Come at me all you want. But this guy, then he comes after my father? So yeah, whatever, he’s an idiot…I might go to Anaheim just to find Mr. Bisping, who wants to bring up my family. I’m going to slap him in his mouth.”
The New York native recently called out the middleweight champion after a win over Kelvin Gastelum at UFC On Fox 25, which is what started the verbal warfare on Twitter.
If Weidman doesn’t get to fight Bisping next, they he has to start thinking about who he would like to fight.
“I haven’t really put too much thought into [my next opponent],” Weidman said. “Man, I was thinking of Kelvin Gastelum forever, and then obviously you always want to fight for the belt. That’s what I want. I want to fight for the belt, I want to make that money, and the belt is where you get the money. I learned that, so I want to get back to the belt.”
Bisping is unable to fight at this time against Weidman or anybody else, because the middleweight champion is currently on the shelf with a knee injury.
