Like the rest of the world, UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping is in disbelief regarding the horrific Manchester bombings that have left more than 20 dead and 59 more injured, including at least a dozen children under the age of 16.
For Bisping, the tragedy hits very close to home.
During his rise in mixed martial arts, Bisping called Manchester home. The champ has fought countless times in England and most recently defended his title against Dan Henderson at Manchester Arena, the very venue that was bombed following an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night.
After news of the bombings surfaced, Bisping took to social media to share his condolences and shock.
“Lost for words at this cruelty. My thought and prayers are with everyone who was in attendance #motherf**kers,” Bisping wrote.
The senseless attacks were horrifying and shocking. To see some of the most vulnerable young people in the world targeted in a heinous act fills you with both anger and heartache.
Our deepest condolences continue to go out to all of those affected by the attack.
