Michael Bisping fights Cung Le at UFC Fight Night 48 on Saturday, August 23, 2014 in Macao, China, live on Fight Pass. "The Count" and Le have expressed mutual respect. Indeed, the sometimes controversial Count has lately been nothing but warm and fuzzy.

However, mutual respect and admiration is not as fun as trash talking, and doesn't put asses in seats; during a recent appearance on UFC Today, Bisping went after Luke Rockhold.
"When Luke Rockhold is done making a douche bag out of himself, hanging out at pool parties with teenagers, if he wants to get back to business and step into the Octagon, I'm the man for the job," said Bisping, as transcribed by Jesse Holland for MMAMania. "After his last fight, he called me out. But then he said he hurt his little pinky toe. If his toe's healed up, and he wants to get back to business, we can go toe to toe, or pinky to pinky."
Rockhold does not currently have an fight scheduled, but if things go Bisping's way in China, the next fight announcement could be immediate.
