Chris Weidman’s big win at UFC on Fox 25 over Kelvin Gastelum on Saturday ended a losing streak and immediately made him relevant in the UFC’s 185-pound title chase again. Of course, like virtually every other middleweight that wins a fight these days, he called out champion Michael Bisping in his post-fight interview.
Bisping, never one to let a challenge go unanswered, responded pretty quickly on Twitter (salty language warning):
And that kicked off a twitter beef that could be categorized as tepid, at best:
Bitch— Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) July 23, 2017
Your a fucking piece of shit. Mocking a fight injury. Well I pray you don't suffer the same. And fuck you pussy. When I see you, it's on.— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
@ChrisWeidmanUFC "Im the champion" u sounded so pathetic.Jealousy is one of the deadly sins.Shame on U. On your knees and pray harder bitch— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
according to the fans yes. fuck me your desperate. No one likes you bro. Yes no one likes me either, but I don't give a fuck. Ur so needy— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
Everyone loves me— Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) July 23, 2017
Bisping then took his game over to Instagram, posting Weidman’s recent 1-3 record, but then deleted it for whatever reason.
This clearly won’t mean a bunch, because Weidman isn’t getting a title shot any time soon. Bisping is currently out with a knee injury and Robert Whittaker recently won the interim title by defeating Yoel Romero at UFC 213. So clearly those two men should meet next.
Regardless, I guess this makes for some good reading at least. Maybe. Sort of. Not really?
