Michael Bisping claimed he had been assaulted by a member of the public and then posted a picture to out the suspect.
You'd have to be pretty stupid to attack anyone with an MMA background, never mind a former UFC champion and Hall of Famer like Bisping, but that's apparently what happened on Saturday night.
The Count took to social media to tweet about the fact that he'd been assaulted after filming on a public street. The 42-year-old mentioned that he wasn't hurt and he just walked away.
was just assaulted :joy: guy got in my face for filming on a public street. I told him to go away and he punched me :joy: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. Man I'm mature these days :joy:- michael (@bisping) June 27, 2021
Bisping, who is now a regular co-commentator on UFC's live broadcasts, as well as a pundit on BT Sports, found it easy to find his attacker.
As he'd been filming, the former UFC middleweight champion had the perfect image of the man who assaulted him and posted it on Twitter calling for anyone who knows him to let him know that he "hits like a b**ch."
Bisping could have actually been in an official fight with someone else who "hits like a b**ch" after initially claiming he was ready to take Jake Paul "to school."
However, instead of Bisping, the YouTuber will actually fight another former UFC champion in the shape of Tyron Woodley, for his fourth professional fight.
Speaking on his podcast Believe You Me, Bisping revealed how much money he turned down for the potential fight. "I'm happy for him [Woodley]," the hall of famer said.
"I don't know what [Woodley is] going to get paid, but I'll tell you right now: I was offered $500,000 to fight Jake Paul, so I would assume it's probably more since the fight's happening. So good for him.
"He might go out there and might be getting $1 million, and I couldn't be happier for Tyron, because he really deserves it."
Paul is yet to actually fight a boxer, having fought another YouTube star, an NBA player and a retired MMA fighter in his previous three fights, but believes his will fight Canelo Alvarez.
Paul told TMZ: "I think it's taking it on a fight-by-fight basis and continuing to build these fights and make them bigger, even bigger, and then take on more serious opponents.
"If you were to ask me if I was going to be where I am now three years ago, I wouldn't believe you. So, I don't want to [put a] cap on my possibilities. I'm open minded and I think anything is possible.
"I think I could be fighting Canelo Alvarez for the WBC or WBO championship belt."
