Ex champ Michael Bisping RIPS OUT fake eye during interview!
Michael Bisping is always one to deliver a solid interview, and he seems to be full of surprises even after his MMA career. During his own “Believe You Me” podcast alongside host Luis Gomez, Bisping actually ripped out a glass eye from its socket.
“That’s why I used to wear f**king sunglasses, baby boy,” Bisping said.

It was when the Eglish former UFC champ faced Vitor Belfort in 2013 that he sustained catastrophic eye injury. Bisping suffered a detached retina in his eye, which was close to causing him to permanently lose vision. Bisping blamed Belfort for “permanently disfiguring” him.
“Vitor Belfort head kicked me and that’s what caused my detached retina”, Bisping said in an interview with the Three Amigos Podcast. “Since then, I’ve had five surgeries, and my eye is never going to look the same again. That was one of the reasons why I said I was never fighting anybody else with a steroid history.”
During his storied career Bisping would go on to defeat some of the sports greatest. His most famous victories include decision wins over Dan Henderson and Anderson Silva, as well as a brutal knockout over Luke Rockhold.
