Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen a host of established veterans come up short against rising stars — particularly in the welterweight division. Former UFC welterweight and middleweight title challenger Demian Maia lost to Kamaru Usman. Two-time welterweight title challenger Stephen Thompson lost to Darren Till. Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos gave up a decision to Colby Covington just last weekend.

There will be no farewell fight for “The Count.”

Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping officially announced his retirement from mixed martial arts Monday on his Believe You Me Podcast, bringing an end to a 14-year career that saw Bisping establish himself as one of the most successful and longest tenured fighters in UFC history while also becoming a pioneer for MMA in the United Kingdom.
