Long-time rivals Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold have been spotted training together at the RVCA Gym in California — see this and much more in Wednesday's social media roundup.
Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold now training together
Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold had one of the most bitter rivalries in UFC history and it seems that that rivalry is now over as the two are now training together under Jason Parillo.
Bisping, of course, is retired now after having a double knee replacement and having one eye so he is not training as hard as he used to but he is still able to move around and work in the gym.
For Bisping and Rockhold to become civil with each other after their rivalry seemed like a long shot but it seems that Jason Parillo who has been a coach of Bisping's for a long time has pulled off the impossible and made the pair friends/training partners.
Check out the awesome footage of Bisping and Rockhold training together below.
It is very nice to see what once was such a bitter rivalry turn into a potential friendship between the two former middleweight champions.
Bisping then shared a picture of himself, Rockhold, and Parillo on Twitter.
