"I can wrestle, I can grapple, I punch hard, I can kick and I've got some kickboxing experience," Bellew told Sky Sports. "You can forget about me getting in the cage with Jon Jones [UFC light-heavyweight champion] - not a chance. But if you're asking if I would get in the cage with a puncher in the UFC? Mike Bisping is a guy who is predominantly known as a puncher and he's a very strong wrestler as well.”

Upon learning of the challenge from Bellows, the MMA champion took to Twitter to say he has accepted the bout:



If the bout were to somehow come together, it couldn’t happen to 2018 at the earlier because Bisping has at least one, maybe two fights in the UFC ahead of him.
