It didn't take long for Michael Bisping to start a war of words with former UFC champion Anderson Silva.

Hours after it was announced Bisping is set to face Silva in the main event of UFC Fight Night 83 on Feb. 27, the brash Brit went to Twitter to launch the first verbal shot.

During Silva's hearing with the NAC this past August, where he was suspended after failing two drug tests after UFC 183, his lawyer argued a tainted sexual enhancement supplement was the cause of the UFC legend's positive results for drostanolone.
