Never forget Michael Bisping fought almost half of his UFC career with a really messed up right eye. That Michael Bisping eye though. Sure Bisping was polarizing throughout his entire MMA career but dude was tough as nails.
From Daily Star profile on The Count and his eye injury he suffered way back in 2013.
“I’ve been left permanently disfigured, if you will, from my fight with Vitor Belfort. Vitor Belfort head kicked me and that’s what caused my detached retina. Since then, I’ve had five surgeries, and my eye is never going to look the same again.”
Sweet eye socket Jesus.
Bisping would only go on to defeat Cung Le, Anderson Silva, Dan Henderson and win the UFC 185 pound title from Luke Rockhold, all while working with like one fully functioning eye.
Now living the retired life, The Count took to IG to post about another recent eye mod and he’s not a cyborg yet but Bisping’s eye looks healthy again.
Eye (I) smell a comeback? Be ready for all kinds of eye puns and wordplay if Michael Bisping ever returns to the cage for one more farewell fight.
