Former UFC Middleweight champion KO’d at UFC Fight Night 122 weeks after being choked unconscious @AhmarSKhan/Twitter

Michael Bisping (30-9) made the rare decision to fight just weeks after defending and losing his UFC Middleweight Championship to Georges St. Pierre at UFC 217.

The UFC veteran’s attempt at getting right back into the win column came back to bite him as he took a stiff jab from Kelvin Gastelum (14-3), whiffed on a right cross, then ate a one-two to the jaw that put him to sleep.

Bisping had won five consecutive fights from 2015-2017 before his loss to St. Pierre. He’s now lost twice in a span of weeks.

After a loss to Chris Weidman in July, Gastelum’s arrival back in the win column is a big one — a win that could catapult him into the top contender spots.
