Michael Bisping and Chris Weidman are taking it up a notch

Things are getting heated with Chris Weidman and Michael Bisping

Last night Chris Weidman defeated Kelvin Gastelum with a dramatic Arm Triangle to snap a nightmarish three fight skid and put himself firmly back in the mix at 185. The first thing he did after thanking family, friends, teammates and fans was call out “The British Bum”, as he called him, Michael Bisping. Well, Michael Bisping and Chris Weidman are upping the ante on Twitter.

Bisping will never let something like that slide by, and he took to Twitter to retort.

Bisping is never one to take the high road, but he could be right in his anger for the cross-eyed comment and picture. Bisping’s eye was permanently injured by a kick from Vitor Belfort. He literally gave his eye to the sport of MMA. Seems to me that should be off-limits when you’re battering about trash-talking.  Guess Weidman didn’t agree, and here we are.

It would be a very interesting fight, and Bisping has shown before he will fight who he wants, despite what the rankings might indicate. As I’m sure the drama will continue to unfold, we’ll be watching.
