Drunk Michael Bisping KOed his own brother, then almost swung on Dominick Cruz

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion, Michael Bisping, has been accused of having pillow fists throughout his mixed martial arts (MMA) career, though his brother might have something to say about that.

Especially after getting laid out in a Hollywood night club.

That’s according to former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, who works with Bisping as a UFC on FOX chair-tipper analyst. It appears “The Dominator” was a first-hand witness to the sibling sucker punch and nearly found himself down for “The Count,” as well, following a verbal altercation.

From Bisping’s official podcast (via The Mac Life):

“All of a sudden, Michael Bisping’s brother comes out of nowhere and he goes, ‘Bisping, Bisping. Stop it! You’re going to get us in trouble. And Bisping just whap! Sleeps his brother in the middle of the club, just lays him out! I go, ‘Oh my God, that could have been me! Thank God I talked a little bit of sense to him because at first when he was yelling to me, I was like, ‘Go ahead, Bisping. If you want to do this, we can do this right fucking now.’ I was like, ‘We can do this, but I promise you, you’re going to swing, you’re going to miss, we’re in a small place, you can’t see very well, I’m going to hit you 10 times before you even hit me once.’”

I guess the rumors were true.

Bisping retired from combat sports earlier this year after suffering consecutive losses to Georges St-Pierre and Kelvin Gastelum in late 2017. Cruz, meanwhile, has been sidelined with another injury but was recently cleared to return.

Let’s just hope said return takes place inside the Octagon and not the streets of Hollywood. We don't want to give these guys yet another thing to be laughing at.
