Undefeated heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury continues his verbal attack on MMA stars, this time targeting UFC middleweight contender Michael Bisping. 

Fury, who has also called out UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and Bob Sapp in the past week, took to Twitter to fire a couple shots at Bisping:


I think michael bisping I a first class prick.! Him & valasquez at the same time couldn't beat me! My friend ko.d bisping ask him.

The only fighter to knock out Bisping inside the cage is Dan Henderson—back at UFC 100 in July 2009. However, Fury's next Tweet seems to imply that he is referencing a knockout that occurred during a sparring session.


@bisping U a r wanker who is shit a fighting ask anyone. Remember when u got chined by blond John??

Bisping, notorious for his outspoken ways, responded to Fury in a very matter-of-fact manner:


Everyone just ignore that excuse of a man, Tyson something. He's trying to get hype, I'd never heard of him till he called out Cain.

"The Count" has won five of his past six fights, his only loss being a hotly contested decision to Chael Sonnen at UFC on FOX 2 in January. 

UFC president Dana White has stated that if Bisping defeats Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 7 later this month, he will finally get his crack at UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
