Rockhold has a wager for Michael Bisping…
- The war of words between Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping continues, and at this rate I doubt it stops anytime soon. During a recent interview, Rockhold proposed an interesting wager, if they should fight..
"I've got a wager. Bisping is grossly overpaid, comparably to where we are. So, I bet Michael Bisping, if I don't finish you in the first round, you can have my purse. But if I do finish you in the first round, you give me your purse. So if I don't finish you in the first round, whether I beat you in a decision or what, you get both of our purses. But if I do finish you in the first round, we switch purses, and I get yours. Let's see if you've got some balls, kid. Bring it."
Rockhold's last fight showed him on a 40 and 40 deal ($40,000 to show, $40,000 for a win). Bisping's last disclosed salary (UFC 159) was $275,000 to show and $150,000 for the win. But before Bisping can even think about a Rockhold fight, he needs to get past Cung Le at this weekend's UFC Fight Night 48 event.
