Alan Belcher wasn’t the only one who left UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen with eye problems. Michael Bisping, who defeated Belcher, was forced to undergo surgery to repair a detached retina recently.
“Thanks everyone for the well wishes,” Bisping posted on Twitter Wednesday. “(Operation) went well, will make a FULL recovery and be ready to fight soon, hopefully in Manchester next!!”
Bisping had the operation on his right eye. Surgery was performed last week, according to a report by “UFC Tonight.”
As for his return, “The Count” is looking at a possible match with Cung Le. Nothing has been set for either fighter yet.
