Former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold’s recent win at Karate Combat 45 got the blood pumping in many old veterans.

Ex-UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida did not hesitate to verbally accept a fight with Rockhold after getting called out.

Now, former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, who twice fought Rockhold in the octagon, claimed he would come out of retirement to face him again.

“Luke Rockhold – I was doing a live (stream) to it,” Bisping said on his “Believe You Me” podcast. “And everyone was like, ‘You’ve got to do the trilogy.’ I’ll do Karate Combat against Luke Rockhold. I’ll do it. I’ll do it. I will have a trilogy with Luke Rockhold in Karate Combat. I would love to.”

Bisping was submitted by Rockhold in 2014 but avenged the loss when he knocked out his rival in 2016, and snatched the middleweight title.

Michael Bisping: “I’d do it – 100 percent I would”

Michael Bisping has not fought professionally in seven years and recently turned 45. Despite a few physical ailments he still claimed to be ready to fight Rockhold at Karate Combat.

“This is gathering momentum a little too quickly,” Bisping said on the podcast. “Let me just see my hip doctor first and get my neck sorted. I’m joking. I’d do it – 100 percent I would. Let’s go.”
