#5 Rumor: Michael Bisping vs. Luke Rockhold III to take place at 205 pounds
Michael Bisping has time and again stated that he plans on fighting just one more time, before hanging up the gloves for good.
On a recent edition of his Believe You Me podcast, Bisping asserted that he'd be open to fighting Luke Rockhold in their trilogy bout, and with Rockhold recently revealing that he's been struggling to make the 185-pound limit, Bisping is ready to face his old foe at 205 pounds. 'The Count' stated--
“If that motherf***** wants to throw down at 205 (pounds), yeah, we can entertain that, buddy...I’ve got no problem knocking you out again.”
“I exposed Luke Rockhold...I knocked him out--David Branch nearly knocked him out--Yoel knocked him out. I quite literally took his soul, so if he wants me to do it again, that is one that would stoke the fires so to speak.”
