A trilogy bout between former middleweight champions Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping could be on the cards, as both men continue to generate interest in the match-up on social media.

Last week, Bisping posted a tweet asking fans if he should force Rockhold into retirement, claiming that he would be doing ‘everyone a favor’ by ending Rockhold’s career.

Rockhold, the former Strikeforce and UFC middleweight champ, responded by posting a picture of when he choked Bisping out with a guillotine choke at UFC Fight Night 55, telling ‘The Count’ to ‘sign the contract or shut it’.

It didn’t take long for Bisping, 39, to reply in vintage Bisping fashion, posting a gif image of when he knocked out Rockhold to win the middleweight title at UFC 199, calling his rival a ‘dipsh-t’.

The two fighters continued to go at it on Twitter, with Bisping insisting that he has never been offered a contract for a rematch with ‘dummy’ Rockhold.

Although Bisping hasn’t been offered a contract, it’s surely only a matter of time before he enters negotiations for a third - and possibly final - fight with his arch rival.

Bisping and Rockhold are tied at 1-1 and both men - judging by their recent exchange on social media - have unfinished business to settle in the Octagon.
