UFC Shanghai Medical Suspensions: Michael Bisping Out for 60 Days

Following a brutal 1st round knockout loss to Kelvin Gastelum in the top bill of the Shanghai event, Michael Bisping has been ordered to take some time out

The UFC released details of medical suspensions in a report on Tuesday to mixedmartialarts.com.

Three weeks after his UFC 217 title loss submission to Georges St-Pierre, Bisping was knocked out in spectacular fashion in the promotion’s first event in mainland China.
