Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold have spent the last month verbally attacking each other in the media and social media. Rockhold has stated that he would like to fight Bisping and that if he didn't finish him in the first round, would give his entire purse to Bisping. Rockhold seems pretty serious about the offer, but Bisping would prefer slightly different terms, although to the same affect:
"I've never been finished before in one round in my life," Bisping said flatly of the idea. "I don't know why Luke Rockhold thinks he's going to be the first to do it. But it's not exactly a fair bet, is it? Let's be honest, my purse is a little higher. I've been around a lot longer than Luke Rockhold.
"But I'll have a gentleman's bet. I'll challenge him to a fight, and the winner takes all, you know what I mean? I've never been finished in one round in my life. I've certainly never been finished in one round like he did against (Vitor) Belfort. So he just needs to shut up, really, and focus on his fights. I see him hanging out at pool parties, he's cupping tigers' balls. The real question is, did he take that tiger to a pool party after he was done feeling him up? The guy slowly but surely is turning into a bit of a laughingstock. Just get back to business, get back to winning fights, and people will take you seriously again."
