UFC Fight Night 30: Michael Bisping sent eight opponents to the hospital and Mark Munoz will be number nine

Jonathan Ferrey

Pillows? What pillows? Michael Bisping is sending his opponent to the hospital following the UFC Fight Night 30 event, a special post-fight tradition he's held over eight times in his UFC career.

It's a good thing Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) now offers health insurance.

Mark Munoz is going to need it.

That's according to his UFC Fight Night 30 foe Michael Bisping, who has a history of hospitalizing his opponents. And if "The Count" has his way, the "Filipino Wrecking Machine" will need a little WD-40 after their main event bangfest on Oct. 26, 2013 at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, England.

Bisping issues a dire warning (via SportsVibe):

"I'm going to punch him in the face as many times as possible. If he thinks I've got pillows for fists, I look forward to proving him wrong on fight night. I've sent about eight of my opponents in UFC to the hospital after my fights and with him I'm going to make number nine."

Insert ominous music here.

Munoz (13-3) has been unimpressed with his opponent's "pillow fists," which he promises will be useless against his middleweight "hammers." Since the former NCAA collegiate wrestling stud debuted in early 2009, he's managed to secure three wins by way of knockout or technical knockout.

Exactly the same as Bisping during that four-year span.

If and when either of these two combatants end up in the hospital could depend on how well Munoz -- a wrestler by trade -- is able to implement his offense. With a spot in the crowded 185-pound title chase, this probably isn't the time or place to get creative.
