Bisping would be happy to welcome Nick Diaz to 185


Michael Bisping @bisping
well if Diaz wants a fight at 185 I would happily welcome him to the division.

Steph Daniels caught with UFC middleweight Michael Bisping to talk about the tweet he made after learning that Diaz would "end his retirement for the right opportunity," and about his potential return to MMA next year following rehab for eye surgery.

"I didn't really mean any disrespect to him," said Bisping. "But I heard a rumor off a couple people that he said that he was interested in fighting me, and I know he was talking about maybe coming up to middleweight. He was also talking about retirement; the guy is pretty crazy so you never know what's true and what's not.

"A reporter... said that a fight with Michael Bisping might interest him, so I just tweeted that if he wanted to come up to 185, I'd quite happily welcome him to the division."

"It's still going to be a little time before I'm sparring or anything like that, and that's just because I want to take it really easy. Last week the doctors cleared me to get back in the gym, so I can keep myself in shape."

"I won't be able to get back to active MMA training until after Christmas. I'm working on trying to pack on some extra muscle right now. I'm just following the doctor's orders because I don't want to be in the same position again. I'm just taking it nice and easy, but hopefully at the beginning of the new year, I can book a fight.

i think it would definately be entertaining but also very one-sided. Bisping is bigger, faster all while being better striker with better footwork. Diaz wouldn't even be able to gas the bigger man. So i just don't see a way diaz wins.

first i was like yeah! but i think this fight has massive potential to be a giant let down with ole' jab n jog at the helm.  if they fight in an elevator then i'm down bisping has an edge at wrestling! all other aspects go to diaz
