Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold is the best MMA bromance you’ll see this week

You’d be well within your rights to presume there’s no love lost between former UFC middleweight champions Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold.

We’re coming up on five years since Bisping pulled off a stunner with a short-notice knockout of Rockhold to win the 185-pound title at UFC 199. That win avenged a submission loss to Rockhold for Bisping, but it also set off plenty of bad blood between the two.

But Tuesday, if there are any lingering issues between the two, they were put on hold. We’re not saying they’re going to send each other Christmas cards since that generally doesn’t seem to happen when one of the parties called the other a “fa**ot c**ksucker” not long after their title fight.

So how did the former opponents become almost-BFFs, at least for a day? Let’s take a look.
