Power up! Michael Bisping 2.0 can now generate MAWR POWER with his strikes

Power Up!
Power Up!

Luke Rockhold may want to think twice about keeping this fight on the feet.

That's because Michael Bisping has evolved as a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and ever since he started working with a new coach, has noticed a considerable increase in power with his punches, as well as his kicks. In fact, "The Count" says he's better than ever.

From his conversation with UFC Tonight:

"When you start working with a new coach, you see the progress in the gym, then to sparring and into fights. I believe that started happen. When I came back from my layoff, I had a bad matchup with Tim Kennedy. I feel like I’ve progressed more now. I’m generating more power with the punches and kicks. I’m mentally and physically better than ever. I’m going into this fight in a good place."

How good?

We'll find out when he throws hands with the former Strikeforce 185-pound champion at the UFC Fight Night 55: "Rockhold vs. Bisping" event a week from Saturday (Nov. 8, 2014) inside the AllPhones Arena in Sydney, Australia, live on UFC Fight Pass.

Bisping by knockout?
