Michael Bisping and Jorge Masvidal just do not like each other.

For the second time this week, Masvidal found himself in a heated verbal altercation with the UFC middleweight champion that required the fighters to be separated. As with their earlier encounter, the footage was uploaded by Masvidal’s manager Abraham Kawa:

They saw each other again and this time it was just him #BackyardstoBrightLights #Gamebred

It appears that the clip is part of a promotional effort on Kawa’s part to push an upcoming documentary featuring Masvidal.

There has been bad blood between Bisping and Masvidal ever since “The Count” ripped up a miniature Cuban flag to mock Yoel Romero while Romero was competing for an interim belt against Robert Whittaker at UFC 213 in July. Masvidal’s father is from Cuba.

Both men will be in action Saturday at UFC 217 when Bisping defends his middleweight championship against Georges St-Pierre, and Masvidal faces two-time welterweight title contender Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. Though it’s unlikely that Bisping and Masvidal will actually fight due to their disparity in weight (Masvidal has never competed in a division heavier than 170 pounds), they seem to have no problem with lobbing threats and insults at each other anyway.
