Michael Bisping had a magnificent opportunity to cement his legacy amongst the greats. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a nightmare, as Georges St-Pierre made a spectacular UFC return at UFC 217 after four years of hiatus to beat Bisping via rear-naked choke to claim the middleweight championship on November 4. Just three weeks off that loss, Bisping shocked his MMA fans and accepted short notice fight against Kelvin Gastelum, which he lost via first-round knockout in China. Shortly after, Englishman announced that his next fight is going to be his retirement fight. Ever since Bisping stated he is going to make one last trip to Octagon before he hangs his gloves for good, he has turned down multiple offers to fight that came his way but there is another addition to that list is Stockton\u2019s finest, Nick Diaz. Diaz hasn't fought inside of the Octagon since 2015 and recently coming off of a year-long suspension and promotion's boss Dana White thinks he will fight again. Bisping responds to rumors of Nick Diaz fight while speaking on his podcast Believe You Me: (Quotes via BloodyElbow) \u201cNo, no. I\u2019m not fighting Nick Diaz, it\u2019s all total bullsh-t. I haven\u2019t spoken to the UFC about anything, they haven\u2019t even come to me. In fact, I\u2019m a little bit offended the Ultimate Fighting Championship \u2013 what the f\u2014k?\u201d Bisping opens up on an interesting fact, that before the GSP fight, 'The Count' said he was doing some PR stuff for UFC in New York- and went to a club with friends, and none other than Nick Diaz was also present there. \u201cGreat guy, we hung out, we had some drinks, we had a good time and he suggested that we should fight each other at 170. And I\u2019m like \u2018I can\u2019t do 170, so we were talking about a catchweight and I said \u2018Nick, I\u2019d love to, man. You\u2019ve got a huge name in this sport,\u2019 you know? It was a very pleasant conversation. There was no nastiness, you know what I mean? There was no bitching. I was like \u2018come on dude, you have to come up, making 185 kills me\u2019 and this and that.\u201d \u201cBut really I think we were just having fun with it more than anything. It never materialized into any actual real discussion of a fight, and of course since then he got banned or suspended \u2013 that whole thing with the weed which was ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous. Fortunately, the commission did the right thing and he\u2019s back. But I don\u2019t know were these rumors started, I don\u2019t know who started it but it\u2019s bullshit. I haven\u2019t heard a single thing. The UFC haven\u2019t reached out, my management haven\u2019t reached out \u2013 no one has said anything, no word what so ever.\u201d Let's say if a showdown with Nick Diaz doesn't come to fruition, perhaps an old rival may suit him for a retirement fight and settle the score.
