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."
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?
