Michael Bisping has long been one of the best trash talkers in mixed martial arts (MMA), using his quick wit and sharp tongue to get under the skin of his opponents. But, “The Count” got a taste of his own medicine recently, as Yoel Romero created a GoFundMe page for the current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight champion to raise money to to help “rebuild his life” after the two eventually tango inside the Octagon.
Check out the call to action from “Soldier of God:”
“This is Mike, he will be needing money to survive after me and him meet in the octagon approximately May of 2017. He is happy in this picture after defending his title against another fighter and the devastation he went through has caused him to have surgery on his knee where all the visible damage was on his face. This surgery has prevented him from competing in a timely manner. After his fight with me, I am convinced he will need this money to rebuild his life, he has a family and I am deeply concerned for him. Please help any way that you can as all funds will be used for medical expenses and his retirement party. Thank you for your time and #ynuevo.”
The goal is to raise $100,000 for the brash Brit. As of present time, a total of $120 has been collected, with one generous soul donating $80 to the cause. “The Count,” meanwhile, was not seemingly amused:
@YoelRomeroMMA yap yap yap little doggie. We will fight when I decide, you have no say in this . Until then you are my little bitch.

The two talented 185-pound combatants are on a collision course later this year, but it won’t happen until after Bisping is healed and ready to go following knee surgery (details). As for Romero’s “ducking” claims, “Soldier of God” won’t have to worry as company president Dana White has already confirmed he will face Bisping for the title next, putting ice on Bisping’s quest to get some “big-money” bouts.
