He has been receiving praise for his "warrior" attitude from far and wide.

Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping doesn't plan on sticking around the sport much longer. The Brit stepped up and replaced Silva with only a few weeks between his November 4th title loss to GSP and the showdown with Kelvin.

It'll be a homecoming of sorts for Bisping, who was born in Manchester, England, and has his sights set on retiring after a fight in London in March. "I would love to be on that".

'I would love to be a part of that to say thank you to the British people who supported me and have my last fight there, ' Bisping told MMA Fighting.

One thing that GSP noticed in his return to action is that the UFC is becoming more like the WWE. "I've been at peace for a long time", he said. Contrary to what GSP said, I'm not an angry man.

In the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA), the concept of "ring rust" is frequently used, with fighters who have been out of the cage for an extended period of time often seen as being at risk of not performing to the best of their abilities.

At one stage it looked like he might be gone for good, but finally, a comeback fight was announced, and rather than just looking to conquer his old weight class, the Canadian superstar opted to move up to challenge Michael Bisping for the middleweight title instead. I feel good, I'm in good shape, I've got no injuries, so why not? Facing off against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 122 later this month, the longtime Octagon contender says he wants to retire after a planned contest at UFC Fight Night 127 in March of next year.

Perhaps one silver lining of Weidman's injury is that there is nowhere to really go in the middleweight division.

'That wasn't the plan, but circumstances have put me in this situation'.
