If you’re a contender in the UFC middleweight division, odds are, you probably have beef with the champion Michael Bisping.
Well, after having inserted himself back in the winning column and likely back in the title contention mix, former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman is already battling Bisping on social media. Last Saturday at UFC on FOX 25 in Long Island, N.Y.,
Weidman snapped a three-fight skid, submitting 25-year-old prospect Kelvin Gastelum in the main event of the card.
The Long Island native wasted no time in his post-fight interview with Brian Stann to tell the “British bum” to stop hiding from the title contenders and to let him know that he’s not the real champ of the division. It took only minutes for Bisping to get on Twitter and respond to Weidman’s message.
Say my name bitch! @ChrisWeidmanUFC— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
It appeared, at least for a few hours, that the verbal warfare between the two veterans wasn’t going to escalate. But the American came back Sunday morning with a simple, yet clever comeback.
Bitch— Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) July 23, 2017
Weidman was perhaps a bit tired – having been in a fist fight the night before – so he came back eight hours later to correct his previous tweet by adding “crossed eyed” to it. This, of course, was a shot at Bisping’s eye injury sustained in training back in 2013 that left his eye esthetically different than the other.
.@bisping sorry meant cross eyed bitch.. pic.twitter.com/L8zpubZd3u— Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) July 23, 2017
Well, Weidman’s tweet didn’t sit well with the champ.
Your a fucking piece of shit. Mocking a fight injury. Well I pray you don't suffer the same. And fuck you pussy. When I see you, it's on.— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
@ChrisWeidmanUFC "Im the champion" u sounded so pathetic.Jealousy is one of the deadly sins.Shame on U. On your knees and pray harder bitch— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
Limited characters on twitter. I know the difference— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
Weidman fired back questioning who was the asshole here, sending Bisping the controversial GIF where he’s ripping the Cuban flag and throwing at Yoel Romero’s corner earlier this month.
Wait... @bisping I'm the asshole https://t.co/KuH0kSALJD— Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) July 23, 2017
Despite the powerful GIF, Bisping was still convinced Weidman was the asshole in the situation, and also took a shot at Weidman’s father, who was very happy and vocal about his son’s pivotal victory, while he was at it.
@ChrisWeidmanUFC and lastly. Put your dad on a fucking leash. It's embarrassing.— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
according to the fans yes. fuck me your desperate. No one likes you bro. Yes no one likes me either, but I don't give a fuck. Ur so needy— michael (@bisping) July 23, 2017
Even though there were different topics touched in this twitter war, which was a bit instigated by heavyweight Chase Sherman, Weidman kept theme going and came back to mock Bisping’s eye.
Hey are u talking to me or are u talking to my Dad? I cant tell who you're looking at ?? #family— Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) July 23, 2017
It’s certain both middleweights won’t clash in the near future, but it’s possible they could meet down the road. Having just fought, Weidman has no fight booked for the moment, but he’s back in the winning column and back in the top five of the rankings. Meanwhile, Bisping recently recovered from a knee surgery, and was supposed to face interim champ Robert Whittaker next, but Whittaker might be out until 2018 due to a ligament injury sustained in his title fight bout with Romero at UFC 213.
He’s back. Chris Weidman snapped a three-fight losing streak this past weekend.
Good. Kelvin Gastelum plans to return to welterweight.
Not good. The numbers for Saturday’s UFC on FOX 25 are in.
Heated. Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones have an intense interview.
Interesting. After sparring with McGregor, Paulie Malignaggi says the Irishman has a secret game plan for Mayweather.
Farewell. Roger Gracie retired from BJJ competition after submitting Marcus ‘Buchecha’ on Sunday.

Fascinating interview with Matt Serra and Ray Longo.
Here’s what Serra and Longo were reacting to incase you misses Saturday’s UFC on FOX 25 main event.
Welcome to the UFC, Sean O’Malley.
Man, I really can’t wait for UFC 214.
SOCIAL MEDIA BOUILLABAISSE
One of the best fighter-fan interaction in the history of MMA.
I've never seen @ChrisWeidmanUFC this fired up ever before. #UFCLongIsland pic.twitter.com/W5UtA5tAHb— Mark La Monica (@LaMonicaMark) July 23, 2017
Yeah, so Vitor Belfort wants a rematch with Kelvin Gastelum...
I was supposed to fight @derekbrunson last year and again on September 9th. Twice UFC offered me this fight and weeks later says that he is not available. I don't know what that means... After that they offered me a beginner as a opponent to fight in Canada... I don't know what is happening, but if @derekbrunson can't fight. @kgastelum let's erase the no contest from our cards. I don't care about your fight result tonight. I'm ready to fight!!! Let's do it again! Eu deveria ter lutado com @derekbrunson ano passado e depois estava marcado para lutar com ele em 9 de Setembro no Canadá. Semanas depois o UFC me diz que ele não está "disponível" outra vez. Não sei muito bem o que isso quer dizer... Depois disso me ofereceram um iniciante para lutar no Canadá... Não sei o que está acontecendo com o @derekbrunson , mas se ele não pode lutar de novo. @kgastelum , vamos apagar o no contest do nosso cartel. Não me importa o resultado da sua luta hj. Eu estou pronto!! Vamos fazer essa luta outra vez!!!

Hey, Neil Magny is back! (He’ll probably fight five times before the year is over)
It has been a long 8 months of recovery for me. During this time I hit some really low points both mentally and physically . Fortunately after some intense physical therapy and rehabilitation, my has body made drastic improvements. This morning I met with my doctor to discuss the results of my most recent MRI. I am happy to say that based off of the results, I have been cleared by my doctor to return to competition. Thank you @resiliencecode @landowperformance and @chirokatz1 for helping me overcome my injury. Thank you @elevationfightteam and @musclepharm for working with me and being my support through out this injury. Thank you to all of my fans and supporters who kept encouraging me through out this time. I realize how blessed I am to have you all in my life #ag2g
You think he would’ve done better than CM Punk?
Yup, I considered @ufc 10yrs ago. My goal was @GregJacksonMMA as my coach & 2 full yrs to train. Smartened up 'cause I prefer my jaw in tact https://t.co/p0Yn9n7MGq— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) July 23, 2017
