Former UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping is going to be in the broadcast booth this weekend at UFC Fight Night London.
Outside of calling the action this weekend, one thing the retired fighter wants to do is squash a beef with Jorge Masvidal.
“I hope I see him in London,” Bisping said on Believe You Me (via Jed Meshew of MMA Fighting). “I hope I see him in London so I can just walk over and say, ‘Hey, listen, can we just end this bullsh*t?’ Because as I’ve said, I don’t know the guy! I don’t know him and he doesn’t know me.”
The apparent beef between the two began after Masvidal got heated when Bisping ripped up a Cuban flag to get under the skin of Yoel Romero.
Bisping also says that he has never had an issue with Masvidal, even when their apparent beef was heating up.
“I’m not against Masvidal anymore,” Bisping said. “I’ve got no issue with him. I never had. Let’s see how he behaves in London. Now that I’m with ESPN and not Fox, when we used to travel to the arenas for Fox, Fox always put us up in a separate hotel - a very, very nice, five-star bougie hotel I might add. Now we’re in UFC hotel, so we’re surrounded by all the fighters and stuff like that. So no doubt I’ll be seeing him around fight week. So let’s see how all that goes. If there’s another interaction, if he’s trying to start a fight with me in the lobby like he did in New York, and in Shanghai, and in London. [But] I think that ship has sailed.”
There has been no comment from Masvidal as to whether of not he plans on ending the beef with Bisping.
