During the UFC 251 broadcast, apparently without provocation, Dan Henderson slighted commentator Michael Bisping on the social network.
Bisping replied in kind, and then Hendo referenced the eye Bisping lost to the Colonel Sanders of PEDs, Vitor Belfort.
Surprised you saw this, guess you're not keeping your one eye on the fights as you're supposed to be commentating. No wonder why your commentating is shit. https://t.co/Gs8cVQ2xTy

During his latest Believe You Me podcast, Bisping went all Maximus "At my signal, unleash Hell" in response.
“I was like you f***ing a*****e. What a p****k. I get it, all right but it was a long time ago. It was 11 years ago,” said Bisping. “I see Dan Henderson on occasion, not very often. I saw him, I was in Albuquerque or somewhere for a fight and Dan Henderson was there and we exchanged pleasantries and said hi. ‘Hey Dan, how you doing?’ that’s about it, whatever. A quick ‘how’s everything, all good.’ I thought you f***ing little s***. You little f***ing snake.”
“We had our thing, you knocked me out, you embarrassed me in front of the whole world. I was very upfront and honest about it. I talked about it in my book. I talked about it in my upcoming documentary about and when that documentary comes out you’ll see. In the book, I go into it in great detail and yeah, it did bother me. But it’s part of history, it’s part of my MMA career. I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m kind of glad that happened because it made me a better fighter.
“But for a guy that is older, an elder gentleman like him to be stewing that, you’re a f**$ing a*****e. You’re a piece of s***. Don’t be bitter. Just because he’s got nothing going on. I’m doing well. This podcast does good, I’m commentating, I’ve got businesses. I’m not showing off, I’m just saying my post-athletic career is doing great. I’m not sure what Dan Henderson is doing.”
“I had some loaded in the chamber. Some heavy low blows. But I’m not going to go there. I wouldn’t go there. Trust me, I had a very, very, very, very significant low blow that I’ll tell you off the air but I wouldn’t do that cause I’m not a c**t. I’m not an a*****e. Certainly as a fighter, I wouldn’t go after somebody’s injury that f***ing somebody did whilst on steroids.
“Cause any fighter that steps into the cage runs the risk of getting hurt. They run the risk of getting life long injuries. They run the risk of brain damage. They run the risk of getting f***ing killed and there’s a certain honor amongst it. Like you say honor amongst thieves or whatever. There should be a certain honor, a certain code between fighters that a lot of f***ing a*****es seem to forget. They talk s*** like that little s*** Chad Mendes is another one. You shouldn’t make fun of a fellow fighter’s injury if that injury happened in the cage, in your sport. The chosen sport that you’re all pursuing. That’s bad karma. It’s almost like you’re asking for that same fate.”
“To a certain degree, I f***ing wear that as a badge of honor. I don’t, I cover it up at all times with a fake lens but still, you get the point that I’m making. I wear my cauliflowered ears and my scars as a badge of honor. I cover the eye up all the time because I’m embarrassed by it and it is a touchy subject but what a low, lousy just a scummy s****y move to say that.
“Certainly as a I say as an elder man that’s retired, that has children, and then to go after another fighter’s lifelong altering injury like that. I just thought you really are a low piece of s*** and I’m f***ing happy — you want to talk about CTE and not being able to string a f***ing sentence together. That old f***ing creaky dinosaur, f*** me, he can hardly f***ing talk. He looks like the Hunchback of Notre Dame. He can’t f***ing turn his head left or right. I don’t know what his f***ing personal situation is but I don’t think he’s very healthy either.”
“So go f*** yourself Dan Henderson. And if you’ve got a problem with me baby f***ing boy, come say it to my f***ing face like a real f***ing man cause I’ll stick the f***ing nuts on you, straight a-f***ing-way, simple as f***ing that. You old creaky ass f***ing c**t. F*** off, p****.”
