In the wake of the much anticipated fight between two-time Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) winner, Conor McGregor and unbeaten boxing Welterweight champion, Floyd Mayweather, the world might witness another battle between UFC and boxing yet again.
UFC Michel Bisping and former cruiserweight champion now heavyweight boxer, Tony Bellew are set to take to the ring for a fight.
Bisping, 38, says he “100%” wants a boxing fight with Tony Bellew and Bellew, 34, who moved from the cruiserweight to the heavyweight class by beating former WBC heavyweight champion David Haye in a fight in March had said he will fight his fellow Briton, Bisping in a ring or cage.
Bisping tweeted he would fight Bellew, after his UFC middleweight title contest against Georges St-Pierre.
“Well it looks and sounds good to me,” Bellew replied: “I’ll provide a knockout to add to my highlight reel.”
Speaking to Sky Sports, Bellew, “I can wrestle, I can grapple, I punch hard, I can kick and I’ve got some kickboxing experience.
“If you’re asking if I would get in the cage with a puncher in the UFC? Mike Bisping is a guy who is predominantly known as a puncher and he’s a very strong wrestler as well.
“I think I could get down to 185[lbs]. If the money is right, then Tony Bellew would happily enter a cage or a ring. Maybe let’s do one of them each.”
