In 2010 Alan Belcher had retinal surgery to correct a potentially career-ending injury. Thus the hardcore fanbase cringed all the harder when Michael Bisping accidentally poked Belcher in the eye at UFC 151, ending the fight.

Ironically, Belcher's eye was fine, but Bisping suffered a detached retina, and recently had surgery to corrrect it.

Ariel Helwani broke the news, on  FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight."

"After the fight against Alan Belcher, Michael Bisping completely lost all peripheral vision in his right eye," said Helwani. "He went to see an eye on doctor on Tuesday and he found out that he had a detached retina. On Thursday, he had surgery to fix the detached retina. He’s hoping to return to the UFC in October."

Hendo most likely loosened it initially. Karma finished it.

Not a fan but I wish him a speedy recovery nonetheless. I enjoy watching him fight (or the polarising effect he has!)

Since Belcher poked his eye first it really isn't karma.

I had laser eye surgery months ago to fix holes in my retina. Not when ever i train i fear getting poked in the eye. My eye doctor said i have a better chance of having a detached retina than normal people who did have the holes Phone Post 3.0

I will cheer against him often but never cheer for him to get injured. Pain, sure. Take away his career? No.

FinestScotch - 

I don't like Bisping, and I hated that he thought Belcher hammed it up at the post presser, but despite his lack of finishing, is worth watching and a great fighter.

So I wish him a fast, full recovery


What do you mean he thought Belcher hammed it up? Just curious, I hadn't heard anything about that.

Definitely not a fan and never will be, but this type of injury is something serious and I wish that man, a complete recovery and hope he returns to training and fighting as soon as possible. Phone Post 3.0

Some people still think he did it on purpose? Why would he do it on purpose if he was winning the fight?

 

 

Seems like Bisping is having a bunch of injuries lately. Neck, Hand, Retina now
