“Man, I generally don’t like Bisping, and he did something that I don’t think I could do to anyone that I dislike, and that’s see somebody with their family – see you pushing your kid in a carriage – and disrespect you in front of your kid,” Masvidal said at the time. “I couldn’t do that to another man, so me and Bisping is different. …
“That is something that is different with me and Bisping. It’s not like a fight, and I don’t like him as a fighter because he has one eye, you know? It’s because he’s a (expletive) idiot. I wouldn’t do that to no man, see him with his family and disrespect him. That’s kind of stupid to me, you know, so me and Bisping will – either in the cage or out of the cage, we’ll fix it.”
They fixed it, all right – with pleasantries.
When Masvidal and Bisping crossed paths earlier this year during UFC 246 fight week, the two men were super cool with each other. Masvidal released a video Monday on his YouTube channel that shows their beef was officially squashed. He and Bisping are seen shaking hands, hugging, and Bisping even compliments him on the launch of his Recuerdo Mezcal.
