Michael Bisping - UFC on Fox 2

It didn’t UFC middleweight Michael “The Count” Bisping long to respond to Luke Rockhold’s challenge via Twitter on Tuesday.

It took 45 minutes to be exact.

Rockhold took to Twitter and challenged Bisping to a fight early Tuesday afternoon.

@bisping u dont have opponent, I dont have opponent, u talk (expletive) about ‘practice’ i say we set the record straight once & for all @danawhite,” read Rockhold’s tweet.

The “practice” Rockhold references was a 2012 sparring session between the two while Rockhold was the Strikeforce middleweight champion.

In an interview during a November 2012 episode of MMA Uncensored, Bisping alleged the sparring session didn’t go well for Rockhold.

“Let me put it like this: I’ve sparred with Luke Rockhold recently and let’s just say I’m the unofficial Strikeforce champion. Sorry Luke, but these are the facts,” said Bisping.

Rockhold made his UFC debut on May 18 at UFC on FX 8 in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil.  He was knocked out by Vitor Belfort in the first round of the main event by a spinning heel kick followed by punches.

Bisping suffered a similar fate when he faced Belfort on Jan. 19 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Belfort landed a high kick that sent Bisping crashing to the canvas and finished him with punches on the ground.

Bisping rebounded from the loss to Belfort with a decision victory over Alan Belcher at UFC 159 on April 27. He thinks Rockhold should win at least one fight in the UFC before calling him out.

@LukeRockhold @danawhite I say you go and win a fight in the UFC then we can talk,” responded Bisping to Rockhold’s challenge.
