Following their infamous “Viagra” confrontation at the official UFC Fight Night 84 open workouts earlier this week, Saturday’s headliners — Anderson “The Spider” Silva and Michael “The Count” Bisping are at it again, this time via social media.
Round two of the Silva-Bisping verbal sparring match ahead of the real thing on FOX Sports 1 from “The Count’s” home turf — the O2 Arena in London, England — took place late this week, as following the aforementioned open workouts encounter, Silva took to Instagram and posted the following photo directed towards his upcoming opponent.
The former longtime 185-pound king of the UFC posted the following on his official Instagram page, criticizing the former Ultimate Fighter Season 3 Champion’s pad technique.
Never one to be out-done in a war of words, particularly near the time of a big fight, Bisping fired back on his own official Instagram page soon after Silva’s post.
Saturday night’s hometown boy responded by simply and cleverly posting the following photo of the paperwork for his random pre-fight drug test, which was featured on the UFC pre-fight special that was released earlier this week, clearly poking fun at the fact that this is the first fight back for Silva since he served his first-ever Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) failed drug-test suspension for his fight against Nick Diaz in January of 2015.
