The next time UFC middleweight Michael Bisping takes to the Octagon he’ll do so with the support of a completely new team in his corner as it’s been revealed “The Count” has packed his bags and left longtime home-base of Wolfslair MMA. Bisping’s name was synonymous with the famed UK training center, though he’ll now apparently workout exclusively on the West Coast rather than in England.
News of the change was first reported by MMAJunkie though no specifics as to the cause were revealed. Bisping has also yet to make an official comment on the matter.
Bisping was last seen taking to the Octagon in late January where he was outpointed by top 185-pound contender Chael Sonnen in a fight many felt he should have won. The first hint of his pending separation from Wolfslair may have come while coaching the Ultimate Fighter 14 where his staff lacked some of the gym’s familiar faces in favor of Tiki Ghosn and others.
