UFC middleweight Michael Bisping recently had to withdraw from a fight with Mark Munoz at UFC Fight Night 30, scheduled for later this month in Manchester, England.

The reason for his withdrawal was due to a recurrence of the detached retina he suffered in his April fight with Alan Belcher.

“Words cannot describe how sad I am having to withdraw from my fight,” Bisping wrote on Twitter after dropping out of the fight. “My sincere apologies to evry1 who bought tickets. I will be back soon.”

Early Monday morning, Bisping again hit the social media scene to post a picture of the injury.

“For those asking this is what my eye looks like right now, gorgeous!!!”

    It will be interesting to see if he fights again. It looks like he had ‘Buckle’ surgery. Basically, a band is placed around the retina and eyeball – securing the retina in place and thus minimizing the risk of another retinal tear.

    However, it can tear again – That’s what put Belcher’s career in jeopardy. Also, the risks of future tears become higher due to the fact he is getting punched in the head for a living.

    It’s a horrible injury to deal with, I hope he has a speedy recovery.

    Pretty sure he is still concussed from Hendo knocking him into the future

    I wonder how many times he took that pic before he got it just right. It looks like he’s really concentrating.

    I can’t remember the exact fight, but I recall bisbing faking an eye poke in a fight to give himself some time.

    I’m not a big believer in karma, but I might be coming around.
