Michael Bisping Assaulted In Public By Man Who “Hits Like A B*tch” – MMA Root

Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping says he was punched in New Orleans on Saturday, describing the impact as “so mild that I laughed at him.”

Bisping disclosed the incident to his Twitter followers on Sunday, saying he was filming on a street when a stranger, offended by the act, decided to get in his face. After the man was told to “go away,” he punched the UFC Hall of Famer.

Bisping, a man who has often told stories of his street fights before becoming a mixed martial artist, said he just laughed and walked away, noting that he is “mature these days.”

Needless to say, Bisping’s assailant likely did not know that his victim is a man who once fought in a cage for a living, much less claimed world champion status while doing so.
