“So Max pulled out of the fight and it was obviously reported all over the websites.” Bisping said. “Then I look at my Twitter messages in the morning and I have a message from Max.
“I don’t think he would mind me sharing this, because there is nothing controversial or whatever.” Bisping continued. “He says, ‘Thank you for the kind words and the call out on the interview, my man. It really means a lot and I’m grateful for it. Nothing but love for you, man.'”
“I was like, wow. I was blown away. It was a very nice move, also a very honest thing for him to say.”
