                    <p>UFC middleweight Michael Bisping has only been knocked out twice, by Dan Henderson and Vitor Belfort. Both fighters were on Testosterone Replacement Therapy. In the past 16 fights, he has lost only five, to Henderson and Belfort, to Chael Sonnen who was on TRT, to Wanderlei Silva who was banned for life after running from a PED test, and lastly, he lost to Tim Kennedy. Kennedy is the sole clean fighter &quot;The Count&quot; lost to since 2007.</p>

Ben Fowlkes for MMAJunkie asked Bisping, now 35, how can he not look back on all those fights and wonder how things might have turned out differently?

“I suppose if I really think about it and work myself up about it, yeah, I could do that,” said Bisping. “But realistically, I accepted those fights, and I knew what I was getting into. The way I see it, you’ve got to take it like a man. You dust yourself off, and you get back in there.”

“If people’s testosterone levels can be 10 times higher than what it normally is, of course that’s going to give you an edge. Like this morning, my body was sore because I’ve been training real hard, and my body just can’t do it. So I planned that today I’d take the morning off and do nothing, because I need to. Perhaps if I was taking testosterone or whatever medicine these guys took, I wouldn’t need to have taken this morning off. I would have recovered better and had more muscle mass and hit harder and run faster. Those things all help.”

“Would things have been different? Yes, probably. Am I bitter about it? No, I’m not. I try to take it like a man, and get on with the rest of my life.”

Next stop in the rest of his life is UFC Fight Night: Rockhold vs. Bisping (UFC Fight Night 55) where he fights Luke Rockhold on November 8, 2014 in Sydney, Australia.

I can fully understand both sides of this, should he be upset? Sure, it most likely cost him a title shot.. Why isn't he upset? He's made an extremely good living off the UFC, and they have clearly taken care of him well.

I'm glad he's taken the high road. Phone Post 3.0

I fucking love Bisping! I really hope he beats Rockhold! Phone Post 3.0

Man, i've really grown to like Bisping alot over the years. He has talked it up alot in the past, so its obvious it has bothered him. Glad to see he can get past it, and move forward. Hope he takes Rockhold out in his next fight. Phone Post 3.0

Awesome response from Mike.

Hope he defeats Luke in an epic battle. Phone Post 3.0
