Luke Rockhold recently repeated his desire to fight Michael Bisping for a third time, and the latter would be interested in the rubber match, provided the UFC makes the “right deal”.

Bisping and Rockhold fought for the first time in 2014, and the latter won via second round, submission. In their 2016 rematch, however, Bisping KO’d Rockhold in the opening round.

During Bisping’s “Believe You Me” podcast, the former middleweight champ had this to say about Rockhold’s calls for a third bout (quote via MMA Junkie):

“I feel sorry for him,” Bisping said.  “Listen, I don’t dislike Luke Rockhold. I pity the guy. Of course he doesn’t want my pity, but when I look at him, when you hear him talk … he has a problem. I don’t think I deserve or I want to remove any more of his brain cells. Because he looks good. He’s a model for Ralph Lauren, God bless him. But I knocked him out. David Branch nearly knocked him out. Yoel Romero knocked him out. You would think he wouldn’t wan to get knocked out again. But I’ll tell you this – I will officially say this: If the deal is correct, then yeah, I’ll knock him out again.”

Bisping is coming off a knockout loss to Kelvin Gastelum in November, while Rockhold was taken out by Yoel Romero last month.
