UFC:s VD Dana White har svårt att tro på att forne mellanviktsmästaren Michael Bisping skulle ha lyckats lura läkare inför sina matcher, sedan det avslöjades att han har en ögonprotes.
I en tidigare video som blivit viral, visade Bisping sina chockade fans hur han tog ut sitt emaljöga.
Det här berättade Bisping via sin podcast ’Believe You Me’:
My vision (in my right eye) was pretty much non-existent since 2013.
I was just about able to scrape past the medicals. It was definitely touch and go. I was always terrified of doing a full training camp, then being turned away by the commission doctor.
It was difficult. To pass the medical test, you’ve got to have 20-200 vision, which is classed as clinically blind anyway, so it’s not very good – it’s not a very hard mark to pass. Some days I could, some days I couldn’t. But fortunately, I was just able to scrape by.
People always say, ‘How did you fight with only one eye?’ And I always say, ‘With great f*****g difficulty!’
I en intervju med TMZ frågades White om nyheten
Yeah, I think he did.
He cleared medicals and he had that surgery and had that problem with his eye and you would never know it. The guy, aside from popping his eyeball out of his head, you would never know that Michael Bisping has an issue. But, before he had the surgery, his eye used to point inward, he got it fixed.
White vet inte när Bisping fick protesen men tror inte att detta gick förbi obemärkt hos läkarna.
Nope, you are not duping the doctors. I mean the doctors are looking into your eyes. Listen, I would hope the doctors realize the difference between an eyeball and a fake eyeball.
