However, with UFC middleweight Darren Till claiming Michael Bisping is looking to make a comeback in December, fans have been all over the place trying to figure out if this is indeed true.

Interestingly, Michael Bisping’s latest video tweet might just be a confirmation of the same. One can see the former middleweight champion working on his head movement using a cobra bag at the end of what seems to be an intense workout.

Although Bisping hasn’t fought in the past three years, it won’t be a surprise to see the 42-year-old make another appearance inside the cage. An absolute fan favorite, Michael Bisping’s comeback fight will undoubtedly be a huge draw for the UFC.

However, one must also consider the various injuries ‘The count’ has sustained over his long and illustrious fighting career. Bisping’s impaired vision would certainly make him think twice about a return to the cage. The man’s love and passion for the sport are undeniable, and we’ve seen plenty of fighters make that one last appearance to get a final taste of competing in the sport they cherish.
