Michael Bisping Opens as Underdog Against Kelvin Gastelum

The Rock tweets about Bisping competing at UFC Shanghai

Michael Bisping lost in the main event of the UFC 217 PPV (pay-per-view) event on November 4th in NY at Madison Square Garden to former UFC welterweight champion and current middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre by submission.

'It's time to move on and do something else with my life and I'm not done yet, ' he said.

The UFC is scheduled to return to London in March and Bisping figured that would be the ideal swan song for his career. "I would love to be on that. I've never been to China, let's do it. Get some good Chinese food and hopefully kick Kelvin's ass", Bisping said. "This is the flawless opportunity because I want to fight again, but I don't have to go through all the stress of a training camp and the dieting and everything cause that's all done. That's why I want to fight Kelvin, because I know I can do better than what I showed [at UFC 217]".

So, provided Bisping emerges from his scrap with Gastelum healthy, win or lose, it looks like the 38 year-old's career could wrap up in just four months time. Now it's more WWF (E)", GSP said when appearing at the New York Stock Exchange. "It's insane.

'I'm taking this fight just (because) you're only as good as your last fight, and last week's fight didn't go according to plan.

It expects the United States to account for 80% of the increase in global oil supply to 2025, driven by increases in shale. Growth in energy demand is half what it would have been without improvements to efficiency.

If Bisping can come out of his fight with Gastelum unscathed that should leave him set for one last big fight.

"There's a fight card on in London".

The UFC return to London on March 17.

Bisping has been fighting in the UFC since winning the third season of "The Ultimate Fighter" reality series back in 2006.

"I definitely want my last fight to be in England". While Bisping stands a very low chance of retiring as champion now that he's lost the belt, he admits he's at peace with his decision to call it quits next spring. "That wasn't the plan, but circumstances have put me in this situation".
