Michael-Bisping-UFC-120-460x270UFC middleweight Michael Bisping was scheduled to headline UFC Fight Night 30 on Saturday at the Phones4U Arena in Manchester, England, against Mark Munoz, but was forced out of the fight and off the card due to an eye injury. Former light heavyweight titleholder Lyoto Machida replaced Bisping and made his 185-pound debut on the card.

Bisping suffered a detached retina while preparing to face Munoz. It’s a reoccurring injury that he first suffered in his UFC 159 fight with Alan Belcher.

Bisping recently indicated that he’d like to face the winner of Machida vs. Munoz, but UFC president Dana White eliminated that possibility during the event’s post-fight press conference.

“Here’s the thing. I love that kid. I love Mike Bisping. He’s out six months. He’s out for six months. Have you seen his eye? His eye is a mess, so he’s going to be out for a while,” said White.

Bisping believes he’ll be ready to return in March, but White scoffed at the possibility.

“What he believes and what the doctor believes are two different things,” said the UFC president. “When he becomes a doctor then I’ll start listening to what Mike Bisping thinks about his eye.”
