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!!!”
