It’s been relatively quiet on the Brock Lesnar front in recent weeks; tests are still being done regarding his anti-doping violation, but most of the focus on him now revolves around the return of Bill Goldberg.
However, not everyone has forgotten about the failed tests following his UFC 200 win over Mark Hunt. Hunt himself has quietened down despite bashing Lesnar and the organisation for weeks after the violation news came to light.
It seems like UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has an opinion on everything and everyone right now.

He’s ranted on pretty much everything you think of, include calling out the top four middleweight contenders in Luke Rockhold, Chris Weidman, Jacare Souza and Yoel Romero following his win over Dan Henderson last weekend.
While Bisping is bound to meet one of them inside of the Octagon, his latest comments on The Ric Flair Show may be a step too far for the Englishman, after he laid into Brock Lesnar.

When asked by Ric Flair how tough he thinks Brock Lesnar is – and we’re talking about a legitimate fighting machine here, a freak athlete who comes around once in a generation- Bisping didn’t hold back.
ONE PUNCH KNOCKOUT?
He said: “How tough do you think Brock Lesnar is? Listen, I respect any man that steps into the Octagon because it takes balls.
“But if you have to go in there and take steroids to do it? F**k you buddy, you cocky son of a b***h. Kiss my ass. I will knock Brock Lesnar out with one f*****g punch. I will take him and throw him out of the Octagon like the p***y that he is.
“Am I making myself clear? F***k Brock Lesnar! F**k steroids! F**k all you f*****g f*****s that want to come in here and take steroids.
"Am I making myself clear? I apologise for using that word, I shouldn’t have said that. But steroids have destroyed the sport and anyone that takes them, kiss my ass.”
Flair’s reaction said it all following Bisping’s outburst, and it’s probably smart of the WWE Hall of Famer not to get too involved or try to stir things up further, considering he’s closely linked with the company.
Lesnar usually keeps himself out of all the public call-outs, but it does seem doubtful that The Count could knock out The Beast Incarnate in one punch, if he ever decides to respond.
