On Friday Nov. 7, the UFC headed Down Under to bring fight fans everywhere UFC Fight Night 55, live from the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia. A middleweight grudge between heated rivals Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold served as the main event.

Fight fans will remember Bisping for his comments during an appearance on SPIKE’s MMA Uncensored Live, where he dismissed Rockhold and his fellow Strikeforce fighters as viable contenders. He would later declare himself the “unofficial Strikeforce champion” after he revealed he had his way with Rockhold during a past sparring session.

Rockhold would take the exception to this statement and vowed to “treat Bisping like he needs to be treated.”

The complete Rockhold vs. Bisping highlight video can be found above.
