Michael Bisping Rules Self Out Of UFC 206 Due To Fractured Orbital
Michael Bisping ruled himself out of UFC 206 when he spoke to “UFC Tonight” and stated the following:
“As you all know, I fought Dan Henderson very recently. I have a fractured orbital. I’m getting PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections. I don’t know what they are, but it sounds fancy. I’m getting them on Friday in my leg. I’m limping around the place. I’ve got a fractured orbital.”
“I’ve never ducked anybody in my life, now; I know what everybody at home is going to say: ‘Didn’t you call out GSP a couple of weeks ago?’ Yes, I did, but really, think about this — that was a massive payday. Roughly $3-4 million dollars I would have earned for that fight. Against Jacare, I’m going to get around about a quarter.”
People are saying Bisping is ducking Souza since he was pushing for fights with GSP and Nick Diaz prior to this announcement but I don’t agree. Those two people bring in stacks of money and Souza just isn’t that popular yet. If I were Bisping and nearing the end of my career, I would want to cash out too. Don’t hate the playa, hate the game!!!
