Bisping, who retired in 2018 with a 30-9 professional mixed martial arts record and now works as a color commentator for the UFC, posted two pictures on August 8th of himself sitting on a horse while wearing a tank top.
He wrote in the caption: “Getting ready.” It wasn’t the first time The Count posted a photo like that on a horse, dropping one on his Instagram timeline on August 2 and writing: “Learning new skills.”
Well, Bisping looked like he packed on some muscle in the most recent horse photos, and they can be seen below via the embedded Instagram post:

Bisping Recently Said Anderson Silva Would’ve Beaten Georges St-Pierre if They Fought in Their Primes
Bisping shared the Octagon with two of the sport’s greats, former two-division UFC champion Georges St-Pierre and ex-middleweight king Anderson Silva. The Count earned a unanimous decision win over Silva in 2016 and he lost his 185-pound strap to “GSP” in 2017 via third-round rear-naked choke.
Although he lost to St-Pierre and defeated “The Spider,” Bisping said in a recent video on his YouTube channel that Silva would’ve beaten the Canadian should they have fought each other in their primes.
“In their primes, from 2009-2012, fighting at middleweight, I’ve got to go with Anderson Silva,” Bisping said via Yahoo Sports. “Now look, overall, I think it would have been an extremely close fight. Georges no doubt would have come in with a tremendous strategy. He would have implemented a lot of takedowns, and I think he would have a lot of control time. But as you know, 185, Anderson Silva in his prime, the knockout power, the inventiveness, the creativity that the man possessed, it was absolutely mind-blowing.
“And I think maybe somewhere around Round 3, Round 4, in a fight that Anderson Silva would have been losing, Georges would’ve come in for a takedown and he would’ve walked into a knee, an elbow, a punch, a kick, something, and I do think that Anderson Silva would’ve been victorious. There it is. In their primes, I think Anderson might have got the job done.”
