By FCF Staff
Although Michael Bisping was quickly knocked out by Kelvin Gastelum today at UFC Fight Night 122, the former middleweight champ isn’t changing his retirement plans.
Leading up to today’s card, Bisping said he wasn’t going to retire after the bout, win or lose. The 38 year-old, British star wants his final fight to take place at the UFC’s March 17th card in London.
After today’ defeat, Bisping told the UFC’s Jon Anik (quote via MMA Junkie):
“Kelvin’s a great guy, but unfortunately, it’s going to take a bigger pile of (expletive) than him to get rid of me”.
“I just want to say congratulations to Kelvin Gastelum,” Bisping added. “Job well done tonight – thank you all for being here. I was enjoying myself. He caught me with a good shot. God bless Kelvin. He’s young. I’ve been doing this for a long time, man. I’m getting old. God bless you all for being here. Thank you.”
Bisping fought earlier this month at UFC 217, and was choked unconscious by Georges St-Pierre.
