The 22 fighters competing on the UFC Fight Night: Rockhold vs. Bisping fight card in Sydney on Friday officially weighed in on Friday from the Allphones Arena.
The main event pits Luke Rockhold against Michael Bisping in a fight that has strong implications for each man’s future, particularly when it comes to being relevant in the UFC middleweight title picture.
“This is just another day at the office. This is what I do. I’m here to take care of business, show these good people a great fight and knock this wanker out in the process,” said Bisping after weighing in.
“I’m tired of talking. It’s time to fight. If you enjoyed the talk, just wait until you see the fight, said Rockhold.
Bisping has often been near a shot at the belt, but hasn’t been able to make the leap into the fight for the belt. Rockhold is a former Strikeforce champion who stumbled out of the gate in the UFC against Vitor Belfort, but could put himself right back in the thick of things with a win over Bisping.
