Michael Bisping has gone on record saying his next fight — which is expected to go down on March 17, 2018 at a UFC Fight Night event in London, England — will be the final one of his mixed martial arts (MMA) career.

Not surprisingly, he already has many potential suitors wanting to be his his dance partner. Brad Tavares, for one, recently took to social media to throw his name in the proverbial hat to be “The Count’s” final opponent.

Check it out:

Is it a better idea than this?

Bisping is coming off back-to-back devastating losses, getting choked out by Georges St-Pierre a UFC 217, and then getting knocked out cold by Kelvin Gastelum just a few weeks later in China.

Nevertheless, the brash Brit doesn’t want to go out on two losses, so a victory in his own turf would be a good way to go out. As for Tavares, hes’ had better luck inside the Octagon, winning three straight, including his most recent win against Thales Leites at UFC 216.
