Michael Bisping has ‘roid rage.
No, “The Count” isn’t juiced up and laying waste to his local health club (despite this firsthand account), but he does get “furious” every time he mentions a fellow UFC fighter who was suspended by USADA (even this guy).
Can’t say I blame him, either, after the “disfigured” ex-champion lost one of his eyes against Vitor Belfort, back when “The Phenom” was maxed out on TRT. Following that incident, any drug-test suspension incurred the wrath of bitter Bizzy.
And former featherweight title contender Chad Mendes was no exception.
It seems “The Count” took exception to comments “Money” made on a recent Instagram post from Tim Kennedy, who referred to Bisping as a “foul-mouthed asshole” who was recently inducted into the Army Ranger’s “internal hall of douchebags.”
Mendes commented on how the retired Brit was “ignorant” and “disrespectful.”
“You little steroid cheating fuck,” Bisping wrote on social media, according to his most recent podcast. “Don’t be sour because your career amounted to nothing. Ignorant and disrespectful? What, like disrespecting the sport by taking steroids by dishonoring yourself and your opponent in a sport that someone could die? Shame on you, you little dipshit.”
It didn’t take long for “Money” to bite back.
“Hey Bisping let’s get some shit straight here: When I let USADA suspend me it was for a banned peptide under their rules, NOT a steroid,” Mendes wrote on Instagram. “Just to put some shit into perspective for morons like you, too much caffeine in your system is a violation under USADA rules.”
Mendes served a two-year suspension after testing positive for Growth Hormone-Releasing Hexapeptide (GHRP-6) back in early 2016, though “Money” insists it was triggered by a topical cream he was using to treat his lifelong skin condition.
“That entire system is the biggest crock of shit ever implemented into UFC,” Mendes continued. “Unlike all these other guys getting ‘popped’ and making up the worst excuses ever to wheel and deal their suspension down, I owned that shit like a man. Now keep my name outta your mouth you old, wooden-eye having prick before I snatch your soul like my boy Dan Henderson did.”
Mendes returned to competition in summer 2018, but retired at the end of the year following a technical knockout loss to Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 232.
