Former UFC star Michael Bisping caught on hot mic making homophobic comment


During UFC 298, former UFC fighter Michael Bisping, working as an analyst for ESPN, was inadvertently captured on a hot mic making a homophobic remark while discussing the night’s events. He referred to one of the fighters as “What a guy.” Although the segment concluded, the camera lingered, capturing Bisping criticizing his own comments. This incident adds to a history of controversy for Bisping, who previously used a homophobic slur in 2016 when addressing opponent Luke Rockhold after a UFC 199 win.

In that instance, he quickly expressed regret and asked the media to delete the comment. Notably, Bisping retired from MMA in May 2018, citing an eye injury sustained during a November 2017 fight with Kelvin Gastelum as a significant factor. Despite this, he had a successful career, winning the UFC Middleweight Championship in 2016 by defeating Dan Henderson at UFC 204.
