Michael Bisping has been retired for almost three years, but the former UFC middleweight champion still finds himself in and out of surgery due to serious long-term injuries stemming from his 13-year fight career.
“Last one, hopefully. This is a decent one. Anterior Cervical discectomy. They enter through an incision in the front of my neck. Push all my throat and insides to one side to reveal my spine. Then they remove a disc, insert a titanium plate, screw in 4 screws and shave down some bone Spurs in the spine and stitch me back up. See you in about 6 hours,” Bisping wrote on Instagram prior to surgery.
