Michael Bisping getting slapped by Jorge Masvidal once UFC officials aren’t around to protect him

The next time UFC welterweight veteran Jorge Masvidal sees retired middleweight ex-champion Michael Bisping, UFC Vice President of Athlete Development, Reed Harris, won’t be there with a security detail to save him.

That’s because “Gamebred” is going to wait for the right opportunity and start slapping up “The Count” once both combatants are no longer tailed by UFC officials. And if Masvidal has his way, it will come this March in London.

Right after he schools Darren Till.

“He’s going to get it one day when the UFC officials ain’t around,” Masvidal told Radio. “If I get to see Bisping after the Till fight and slap him up, what a super plus. That’s like a 50K bonus if I just get to slap up that little trick bag in his own city. Oh, I’d pay a good amount of my hard-earned money. Everybody here in this knows we don’t earn the money the easiest way that it can be earned. Man, I would spend a lot of my own money just to be put in the cell with him showcasing it.”

Get in line.

Masvidal and Bisping have beef after running into one another at the UFC fighter hotel ahead of UFC 217 (watch the video here). Then came a second confrontation at the same location and once again, plenty of UFC officials were on hand to break it up (see it).

There won’t be any extracurricular activities unless Masvidal can first get past former title contender, Darren Till, in their upcoming headliner on March 16, which airs on ESPN+ from inside O2 Arena in London, England.
