Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Michael Bisping, who was "in and out like a soldier" after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus, hasn't been able to provide the UFC with a potential time table for his return.
In fact, "training isn't even an option."
"Who knows? I've never had surgery before so I've never been through this. As fast as possible. I'm gonna give it another week and then call the UFC and then maybe we can start talking about a fight. As of right now, training isn't even an option. [September] is what I'm thinking, I don't know if I'm being too optimistic or not."
Hear more from "The Count" on his rehab (via Inside MMA) after the jump.
Bisping was booked to throw hands opposite an untimely injury to Brian Stann.at the pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Calgary; however, "The Barbarian" will now welcome to the Octagon thanks to
The same injury that turned the UFC on FOX 4 card on its head.
Not coincidentally, Bisping and Stann will both be on the shelf for just a couple of weeks, so don't be surprised to find them facing off later this year, considering their mutual interest in fighting one another.
