Video: Michael Bisping tells Chris Weidman to 'shut up' after champ crashes UFC Fight Night 55 presser

Should Vitor Belfort come up lame in his attempt to grab middleweight gold, there's a very good chance Chris Weidman could face the winner of Luke Rockhold vs. Michael Bisping, who collide in the Friday night's (Nov. 7, 2014) middleweight main event in Sydney, Australia.

Which may also explain why the "All American" was hanging around the UFC Fight Night 55 press conference, which led to this interesting exchange (via Submission Radio):

Weidman: "I think it's going to be an exciting (fight). You know Bisping doesn't go away, so he's a tough guy with great heart. So it's going to be hard to finish him but ...I'm going to have to say I think Rockhold wins this fight."

Bisping: Of course the Yanks, they stick together. You need all the help you can get (to Luke). We started this shit and we'll finish this shit."

Weidman: I hope for a good fight. I wanna watch a good fight and I'm hoping that it is. As long as the Tim Kennedy Bisping doesn't show up, it could be a great fight."

Bisping: "Hey, that guy's never showing up again, but shut up Chris. This our press conference."
