Michael Bisping Appreciation Thread

As cool a story as it sounds, there's no chance he fought with a prosthetic eye. It never happened. There's people online who actually think that he did now, which is amazing.

Yeah, I didn’t know what to think when that video first came out of him popping his eye out. I got swept up in the ‘he won the title with one eye!!!’ thing. But thinking logically, there’s no way you’re sneaking that past even the most lax of athletic commissions. The old ‘follow my finger with your eyes’ thing is the most basic of things a doctor does after any fight. They’d have to be blind themselves to not notice that one of his eyes is staying completely still. He obviously made do with the fucked up eyeball for as long as he could and by the time he retired it was too far gone to save the eye so he had to have the prosthetic in. Still mad though. And from the sounds of the way he’s described it, for all the sight he had in that eye he might as well have been wearing a fake one.

If anything, this situation should highlight to fans that an eye poke during a fight is nothing to take lightly, especially the fucking idiots who boo and throw shit at a fighter when a fight has to stop because of it.
