The visual field and depth perception tests that were required by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to sign-off on a proposed match-up of Michael Bisping vs. Tim Kennedy came back inconclusive.
That's according to a report on UFC Tonight.
Bisping's manager, Audie Attar, said medical professionals in London were unable to secure the correct equipment needed to properly test "The Count's" eye, and Bisping is now waiting -- yet again -- to take the required examinations.
The sidelined Brit was confident that he was out of the woods after a detached retina (see the pic here) nearly left him blind in his right eye. Confident enough to verbally accept a fight against Tim Kennedy in The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Nations" Finale main event on April 16, 2014, in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
However, a developing cataract put those plans on ice.
In other words, the cataract certainly doesn't improve his chances to pass either test. And if he fails, he'll likely require additional surgery to correct the issue before he steps foot inside the Octagon once again.
Everything is in a holding pattern, and until the doctors are able to find the correct equipment, Bisping will remain on the shelf for at least five more weeks.
