As coronavirus cases continue to mount, as do deaths from the pandemic, Michael Bisping has had some sharp words for quarantine critics and virus conspiracy theorists.

Many jurisdictions around the world have enacted bans on travel and public gatherings as a means to slow the spread of the virus. Recently Bisping spoke with Submission Radio, and while talking about the restrictions that have been put in place, the former UFC champ said this (quotes via MMA Junkie).

“Unfortunately, the world’s going through a very crazy time right now, and if we all just do as we’re bloody well told and follow the guidelines – it isn’t 5G, governments aren’t conspiring to one world order, it isn’t a conspiracy, the earth isn’t flat. We’ve just got to (expletive) stay indoors and do as we’re told, and this thing will pass,” he said.

“But there’s a lot of idiots out there that feel that they know better. A lot of people are insecure and they think that everyone’s against them and the world’s a big conspiracy. It’s not a conspiracy. There’s a (expletive) disease, an illness, a virus, which has originated in China and spread across the world that’s highly contagious. We’ve got to stay inside, do as we’re told and, in a little bit, it’ll pass.

“Or we can all be idiots, ignore what everyone’s telling us, ignore what the scientists are telling us … because I know what people are saying: ‘Don’t believe everything you hear on the news.’ I don’t. What I do is listen and read and listen to the medical professionals, people that have dedicated their entire lives to medical science. I tend to listen to them, not some knuckleheads on the internet.”

Recently UFC President Dana White shared out a planned card for a May 9th card. But, as this is being written, no official location for the event has been announced.
