01:13 PM ET 04.29 | Michael Bisping will have surgery to fix his issues with stenosis. Bisping, who defeated Alan Belcher in the co-main event at UFC 159 on Saturday, said he might be out two of three weeks after having the procedure on his neck. "I have a condition called stenosis. I have a trapped nerve and it's causing atrophy, which is muscle loss and weakness in my right arm and numbness," he said. "I've had that for a while, but it???s progressively getting worse and worse. I saw a surgeon about six weeks before this fight and he told me I needed surgery, but there was no way I was going to pull out."

The UFC has to do something about Bisping's intentional poking the opponent in the eye every single fight.

In this one, the guy's eye was spurting blood.

Bisping got tagged in the third and he did what he always does when that happens...he lunges at the guy's face with his fingers straight out. Total B.S. because they each had won a round (on 2 cards, anyway) and the momentum was changing.

I didnt get to see this weekend's fight but I've noticed that with bisping in some of his other fights.....it seems to start looking like a bit of a pattern
