Michael Bisping is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in the world of MMA, as he became the first British fighter to compete in a UFC main event at UFC 78. He would become the first British fighter to win a UFC Championship at UFC 199 after winning the UFC middleweight title. Now it seems he is quite furious with Conor McGregor after his recent actions.
Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round of his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier. Since then McGregor has been on a path of destruction that resulted in McGregor saying a lot of controversial remarks.
Conor McGregor previously made headlines at MTV’s Video Music Awards after he got involved in a scuffle with Machine Gun Kelly while Megan Fox was still with Kelly. Recently, Conor McGregor was accused of punching Francesco Facchinetti, a celebrity DJ in Rome and breaking his nose in the process.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Michael Bisping blasted Conor McGregor for being a bully, especially after allegedly assaulting the DJ in Rome. He also slammed McGregor for picking on those considerably weaker than him.
“I’m not a fan of this guy [Conor McGregor] you know? I don’t think anyone is a fan of this guy, you know, and I think that soon he’s going to run out of steam. The train is going to run out of steam, you know what I mean? It can’t continue like this and one day he’s gonna pick on the wrong person and by the way, the old guy at the bar, Machine Gun Kelly and DJ Francesco Facchinetti, these aren’t tough guys. I’m not trying to sound tough for myself but he’s not starting on me… Francesco Facchinetti looks like he couldn’t punch his way out of a wet paper bag. Machine Gun Kelly looks like the biggest wimp you’ve ever seen in your life and the old guy in the bar is an old guy at the bar. If you’re such a bada**, go and pick on someone your own size because someone not your own size isn’t hard is it? Pick up someone that can fight. You’re a professional fighter. You are supposed to be looking for challenges but what he is essentially turned into right now is a bully you know and no one likes a bully.”
We will have to wait and see what shape Conor McGregor will be in once he returns to the Octagon. McGregor is expected to be out of action for a year as he is set on returning as soon as possible.
