Michael Bisping Sets Sights on March, 2018 For Final Fight
By FCF Staff
Michael Bisping is reporting that he won’t be retiring after he battles Kelvin Gastelum on November 25th, but the former middleweight champ has set a timeline for his final fight.
Bisping lost the middleweight title to Georges St-Pierre earlier this month via technical submission, and not long after, he agreed to face Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 122. Since then, the British star appeared on “The MMA Hour”, and while Bisping said he won’t be retiring after the upcoming, Shanghai card, he does hope to have his final fight on March 17th (quote via MMA Fighting):
“There’s a fight card on in London,” said the 38 year-old, in reference to the UFC’s upcoming card in London, England. “I would love to be on that. I would love to be a part of that to say thank you to the British people who supported me and have my last fight there.”
“I definitely want my last fight to be in England. I’ve always wanted my last fight to be in England.”
For several months now, Bisping has talked about the fact that his retiring wasn’t far off. But, before he faced GSP at UFC 217, Bisping relayed that the fight would not be his last.
