Michael Bisping offers to fight Daniel Cormier at UFC 200

Late Wednesday night, it was announced that Jon Jones had been pulled from the main event at UFC 200 due to possible anti-doping violations. Now, it looks like the company is scrambling to possibly find an opponent for light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and Michael Bisping is reminding everyone about his offer a few weeks ago.

It is nearly impossible to think anyone would be ready to fight on just two days’ notice, but Bisping seems pretty adamant about letting the company know he will fight if they need him.

He even tagged UFC president Dana White and one of the two current owners, Lorenzo Fertitta, in his tweet making the offer.

Bisping will already be in Las Vegas as part of the FOX Sports broadcast crew covering UFC 200 Saturday night, so he feels like it wouldn’t be too much on him if they asked him to be in the main event in the biggest pay-per-view event in the company’s history.

White talked about Jones having to pull out of the fight and he said that he would rather have Cormier not fight than fight someone he shouldn’t be.

“We’ll have to see who wants the fight, who steps forward and realistically, how good of a fight we’d think it would be,” White said on Wednesday night. “This is the best card ever. Rather than having Cormier fight someone that absolutely, positively should not be fighting him, I’d rather have him not fight.”
