Bisping Faces Punishment For UFC 127 Spitting Incident

Bisping and Rivera face off at UFC 127

Michael Bisping faces disciplinary action for UFC 127 post-fight antics.

While it was short of a Charlie Sheen type of incident, Michael Bisping spitting towards Jorge Rivera’s corner at UFC 127 has landed the British fighter in a little hot water.

UFC president Dana White told on Monday that Bisping will face a punishment, but didn’t say what that punishment would be.

Following their heated grudge match on Feb. 26 at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia, Bisping walked over to Rivera’s camp and spit in their direction. The incident was caught on film.

While the camera caught Bisping spitting, the fighter denied spitting at Rivera’s camp. He maintains he was spitting on the floor as a gesture of his opinion of them.

Rivera’s camp called for disciplinary action and it looks like they’re going to get what they asked for.
