Michael Bisping hauled off Norwegian flight after being selected for random search

MMA: UFC 209-Weigh Ins Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight champion got a bit more than he bargained for during a recent flight, as “The Count” was removed from his seat after he was selected for a random search.

Bisping to to Twitter to break it down

In this day in age, you can’t be too careful.

According to the The Mirror, Bisping was in London, England for the premiere of his new film, “My name is Lenny,” which sees the brash Brit play the part of boxer Roy "Pretty Boy" Shaw. Thankfully, “The Count” was allowed back on the Norwegian flight and eventually made his way back home to Anaheim, California.

Bisping is currently on the mend after undergoing knee surgery. As a result of the setback, his much-anticipated bout against Georges St-Pierre was cancelled, and subsequently prompted UFC officials to book an interim title fight between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker for UFC 213 on July 8 until Bisping is ready and able to face the winner.
