UFC President Dana White responded Thursday to the man who filed a lawsuit against middleweight champion Michael Bisping over an alleged assault at a gym in Anaheim, California.
"I'm sure it's that typical f--king p---y who opens his mouth at the f--king gym, and then Bisping goes over and—I don't know what Bisping did to him, but now he wants to f--king sue Bisping—should have shut your f--king face in the first place," White said on the RQMS Podcast (warning: post contains profanity).
"You're a clown. Guys like that are a f--king embarrassment."
TMZ Sports first reported Tuesday that Bisping was being sued by Antonio Georgakopoulos, who alleged that he was involved in a verbal and physical altercation with the fighter after he took his weights at the gym without asking.
Citing a copy of the lawsuit, TMZ reported Georgakopoulos alleged that Bisping "grabbed him by the throat and began to squeeze—cutting off oxygen."
TMZ later spoke to the Anaheim Police Department and confirmed Bisping was not arrested and that the City Attorney's Office opted not to press charges due to a lack of evidence.
"Total bollocks," Bisping said of the allegations Thursday, according to MMA Fighting's Marc Raimondi. "There's your comment."
Bisping, 38, will headline UFC 217 on Nov. 4 when he puts his middleweight belt on the line against Georges St-Pierre.
