Michael Bisping’s decision to fight for a second time this month definitely didn’t go his way today in Shanghai, China, as the former middleweight champ was KO’d by Kelvin Gastelum in round one.
Bisping, who was choked out by Georges St-Pierre at UFC 217 on November 4th, was sent to the deck with a booming left hand from Gastelum. The latter landed a couple more shots from above before the action was halted, but Bisping may have already been out.
Gastelum was coming off a submission loss to Chris Weidman in July, but with today’s win, the TUF winner is likely in the title shot mix.
