Michael Bisping is looking for another fight and he appears to be looking to get one quickly. Less than a week removed from his loss to Tim Kennedy, Bisping has already taken to twitter to respond to Brad Tavares' fight request (following Tavares' demolishing at the hands of Yoel Romero) and now is campaigning to fight Luke Rockhold, himself only days away from facing Tim Boetsch. Before his latest lost, the middleweight was knee deep in men asking for a crack at the longtime top 10 vet. Following a loss, it appears to be Bisping that's doing the chasing.
I recall @Bisping telling me to win a fight before calling him out! Hmmmm— Luke Rockhold (@LukeRockhold) April 22, 2014
@LukeRockhold I've won many fights.— michael (@bisping) April 22, 2014
@bisping me too and Tim was one of them— Luke Rockhold (@LukeRockhold) April 22, 2014
@LukeRockhold so now after calling me out all that time you don't want to actually back it up? Yeah thought so.— michael (@bisping) April 22, 2014
@LukeRockhold well best of luck. Maybe we talk after Saturday.— michael (@bisping) April 22, 2014
I can see the track Bisping is on, hoping to get another quick fight with a relevant name opponent and shake off the aura of his recent poor showing, but it feels like Rockhold is at a different point in the division right now. His first offer to take on Brad Tavares or, to throw another name into the hat, possibly fighting Tim Boetsch if he should lose to Rockhold, seem like more appropriate fights for a man who no longer has a win over a single active UFC competitor.
