Michael Bisping Still Targets 2018 For His Retirement Bout

Former UFC champion Michael Bisping still has one fight left in him.

After being knocked out by Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 122 Saturday, Bisping made it known he still plans to compete in London in 2018 before riding off into the sunset.

For “The Count,” though, his fight with Gastelum was all about the former Ultimate Fighter winner.

“I just want to say congratulations to Kelvin Gastelum,” he said. “Job well done. Thank you all for being here. I was enjoying myself.

“He caught me with a good shot. God bless Kelvin. He’s young. I’ve been doing this for a long time, man. I’m getting old. God bless you all for being here. Thank you.”

Three weeks prior to the fight with Gastelum, Bisping dropped the middleweight title to Georges St-Pierre via submission. He agreed to replace Anderson Silva and headline the card after Silva was removed due to a failed drug test.
