Bisping cries harassment, reveals Tony Ferguson regularly DMs him to dispute his ‘bad’ takes

Michael Bisping decried that he’s a victim of bullying recently. Former Middleweight champion jokingly revealed that Tony Ferguson ‘abused’ him.

While previewing the upcoming card, Bisping mentioned that Ferguson regularly slides into his DMs to dispute his views as expressed in his ‘Believe you me’ podcast.

“Tony Ferguson has abused me. He has come after me, he sends me messages. Like if I talk about him and stuff like this on my podcast, I’ve had messages. I won’t swear, so [he’ll] tell me, ‘You’re talking S-*-I-T, Mike.’ And I’m like, ‘No Tony, leave me alone.”


Ferguson is a long time fan favorite but his career appears to be on a downwards trajectory. Ferguson had to face real adversity in the last two years having faced current champion Charles Oliveira in addition to Justin Gaethje and Beniel Dariush.

Ferguson is an underdog coming into UFC 274 match up against Michael Chandler.

During a recent episode of the Michael Bisping podcast, he previewed the match up saying:

“If he loses four in a row, which he’s got a very good chance of doing, let’s be honest, he has got a chance of losing to Michael Chandler. But if he loses four in a row and he loses badly then a lot of people are gonna ask for him to start thinking about retirement, which would be sad because it would be such a huge fall from grace.”

This will surely cause some anger from the former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson.
