Michael Bisping slugged in New Orleans street attack — ‘I was assaulted’

Three piece and a Sazerac?

Sounds like someone’s still bitter over the Seven Years’ War.

Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping was minding his own business on the streets of New Orleans, but it seems a disgruntled street thug didn’t appreciate “The Count’s” attempt to document his trip to the “Big Easy.”

That’s when the pillows started flying.

“Was just assaulted, guy got in my face for filming on a public street,” Bisping wrote on Twitter. “I told him to go away and he punched me. Was literally so soft I laughed at him. So funny that someone that acts so tough hits like such a bitch, I laughed and walked away. I was literally laughing so hard at how pathetic the punch was I don’t think I could hit him.”

Bisping also slapped up his own makeshift wanted poster.

I guess Dana White was wrong about Bisping all along.

The retired ex-champ isn’t the first UFC fighter to be face punched in the streets, though he may be the first to not swing back. And unlike this former UFC titleholder, “The Count” was able to leave the scene under his own power.

As they say in the “Big Easy,” laissez les bon temps rouler!
