Michael Bisping Denies Rumors That He Was KO'd During Sparring

There were recently rumors surfacing the Internet that UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping was “greenlit” and knocked out during a recent sparring session at Freddie Roach’s Wild Card gym in Los Angeles. The rumors came from Middle Easy, and Bisping caught wind of them.

Bisping was unhappy with the reports and he used some very harsh words and gestures for Middle Easy on a video that was posted on his Instagram account.

For those who didn’t catch the rumor, here is how the story was told:

Michael Bisping visited the Wild Card’s gym in Hollywood, CA to touch up on his stand-up for this upcoming fight against Mark Munoz. Apparently Bisping was going really hard in the ring and disrespecting his sparring partner, so a coach sent in a professional boxer to ‘spar’ with Bisping. Within minutes, this professional boxer knocked out Bisping as payback for disrespecting the Wild Card gym.

If Bisping is to be believed, then Middle Easy was just once against taking advantage of their “rumor mill” to throw anything up against the wall to see if it would still.

For those who want to see Bisping disputing the report, here is the video:
