Michael Bisping to face disciplinary action for post-fight spitting at UFC 127Posted on February 28, 2011, 01:54 PM by Joey Santosus
According to UFC President Dana White (via MMAFighting.com), Michael Bisping will face disciplinary action for his post-fight behavior at UFC 127 in Sydney, Australia.
Following his second-round TKO victory over Jorge Rivera in the co-main event, Bisping was caught on camera spitting at Rivera's cornermen. Members of Rivera's team have since revealed that, though he was out of eye's site, boxing coach Matt Phinney was hit by the saliva.
While White has not yet decidied whether Bisping will be fined and/or suspended, he has assured that he will face consequences for his actions.
Bisping has since apologized and adamantly denies spitting at Rivera's teammates, insisting that he only spit on the floor as an expression of his displeasure with the pre-fight videos made by Rivera and company.
