Michael Bisping has revealed a message he sent to Chad Mendes after the retired featherweight contender trashed Bisping on Instagram.
Mendes’ comments stem from an Instagram post in which Tim Kennedy uploaded in May, describing Bisping as “foul-mouthed asshole.” It’s fair to say there was no love lost between Kennedy and Bisping after their fight in 2014, but it’s surprising to see Mendes weigh in on the situation.
“I did see Chad Mendes the wee f—ing sh—e,” Bisping said on his podcast Believe You Me. “He f—ing went on Tim Kennedy’s page and called me ignorant, disrespectful and all this type of stuff.”

On this day six years ago in the main event of the UFC Ultimate Fighter Finale I beat the living crap out of a foul mouthed asshole who is to this day still talking shit. I would care less except that he cheated in a fight against one of my friends, spit on another one of my friends, and then talks nonstop crap about the United States. So this dude has made it into my internal hall of douchebags. #ufc #tuf #tbt #throwbackthursday
Bisping then continued by reading out the message he sent to Mendes after seeing his comment on the post.
“You little steroid cheating fuck. Don’t be sour because your career amounted to nothing. Ignorant and disrespectful? What, like disrespecting the sport by taking steroids by dishonoring yourself and your opponent in a sport that someone could die? Shame on you, you little dipshit.”
Mendes was handed a two-year USADA suspension back in 2016 after testing positive for a growth hormone. “Money” fought just twice after serving his ban, picking up a stoppage win against Myles Jury and losing to now champion Alex Volkanovski. The 35-year-old announced his retirement after the loss.
