VIDEO: Michael Bisping rages in Anderson Silva’s face about steroids before UFC London

War of words...

Ben Kenyon

It didn’t take long for Michael Bisping to step up the verbal warfare with Anderson Silva.

The veteran British fighter is never one to mince his words and is famed for his trash-talking.

So we weren’t surprised when he got right in former champion Silva’s face at the open workouts ahead of their middleweight clash at UFC London on February 27.

Bisping is known for his hard-line stance on performance enhancing drugs – having been knocked out by fighters Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson who were on the now-banned Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).

With Silva coming back for the first time after a 12-months suspension for failing a drugs test, Bisping went for the jugular.

Bisping laid into the Brazilian about whether he could fight ‘not on steroids’ then took the p*ss about viagra – after The Spider claimed the failed test was down to a sexual enhancement product given to him in Thailand.

This is the full exchange between the pair – which looks like it started friendly enough, but then the insults started flying…

Bisping was still ripping afterwards and shot another penis jibe at Silva on Twitter…

It’s not the first time The Count has mocked the ex-champ about the sexual enhancement.

He shot this cheeky tweet at the former light heavyweight fighter just before Christmas.

It’s going to be a great fight when the two men clash at the o2 Arena on February 27.
