It seems as if Michael Bisping has found new levels of confidence since dethroning Luke Rockhold for the UFC middleweight championship.
He hasn’t taken any prisoners; he’s laid into Dan Henderson, whom he defeated in Manchester in their eagerly-anticipated rematch.
He also took aim the top four middleweight contenders in Chris Weidman, Yoel Romero, Rockhold and Jacare Souza.

However, The Count hasn’t stopped there.
Having already gone on an epic rant on Brock Lesnar when he appeared on Ric Flair’s podcast, he’s called out the WWE superstar yet again for his two failed drugs tests.
You can’t blame Bisping for being vocal on the subject, though, as he’s already been involved in losses where his opponents were ultimately tested for PED’s or admitted the use of testosterone replacement therapy in Henderson, Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen.
When speaking to The MMA Hour this week, Bisping was vocal on Lesnar yet again.
He said: “Brock Lesnar tested positive for steroids, it’s as simple as that.
“I have a very strong opinion, so if you’re going to come over here and fight and take steroids, you’re a p***y. Simple as that.
“You come in here and act tough, but then you’ve got to take steroids? So which is it? Are you a tough guy or are you not a tough guy? And if you’re taking steroids, then you’re not a tough guy, because you’re mentally weak and you’re a coward.”
Lesnar has yet to respond to Bisping’s comments, and if he does, perhaps he will pay more attention to the claims Bisping made to Flair, stating that he would knock Lesnar – a heavyweight- out with one punch, and pick him up to throw him out of the Octagon.
Lesnar is currently awaiting his disciplinary hearing with the Nevada Athletic Commission and USADA for the two failed tests. He could go on to face upwards of a one-year suspension from USADA, and should expect something harsh from the NAC.
Bisping knows that Lesnar is dealing with his own problems outside of the Octagon while continuing with his WWE career, and he knows his comments won’t make a difference to The Beast Incarnate.
He added: “I’m sure Brock Lesnar isn’t giving a damn about me right now or what I’m saying, so all good.”
