Michael Bisping shoots down 'Derelict' Brunson: I've got bigger fish to fry

According to former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, you can’t always trust what you see on the internet.

Bisping opened up today’s new edition of “UFC Tonight” with a firm denial that he’s in talks to face Derek Brunson.

“Photoshop is a fantastic thing,” Bisping said. “I have not been offered a fight with ‘Derelict’ Brunson.”

Bisping (30-9 MMA, 20-9 UFC), 38, has made it clear he wants to fight once more before hanging up his gloves nearly 12 years after his promotional debut.

Brunson (18-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) recently took to social media in an effort to book himself into that matchup, even posting a bout agreement, seeming to suggest the offer was on the table.

Bisping is currently ranked No. 9 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA middleweight rankings, while Brunson checks in at No. 12, so there is some logic behind the potential contest.

But “The Count” made it clear he’s not interested in the contest, especially with Brunson coming off a loss to Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, and is holding out for a different name.

“I think (Brunson) is still a shadow of his former self after getting knocked out against ‘Jacare’ recently,” Bisping said. “Derek, you’re a good guy. You’re making moves, but I’ve got bigger fish to fry.

“I don’t even know whose bout agreement that is. Derek, good try.”
