UFC Hall Of Famer and former middleweight champion Michael Bisping was nearly robbed and killed he revealed on his Believe You Me Podcast.
Michael Bisping is in Cape Town for three weeks whilst he shoots footage for his upcoming film ”Warrior”. Speaking about the horrific incident with Luis J Gomez, Bisping explained how events unfolded:
”We go out for a Chinese meal, [I] don’t like Chinese but whatever… We end up having a few drinks. I get back, it’s like three o’clock in the morning and the Uber driver drops me off at a four-way cross street not by my hotel, and he says ‘your hotel is over there’, so I get out the car and the Uber driver drives off and I don’t know which way to go.”
”All the while, I may have been stumbling slightly, and staring at my phone which is a giveaway, I’m on my apps,” he continued. “I’m stumbling around a little bit and all of a sudden low and behold, the freaks came out, the thieves came out, the muggers, the nasty f—king criminal bastards. Before I knew it, I was surrounded by 10 to 15 homeless people begging for money and then they started getting kind of nasty.”
Bisping then explains how he went into survival mode like ”a Lion”:
”At this point now, because my defenses are up, I’m trying to be big, just like a lion in the jungle puffs out his mane… I’m puffing out my chest and I’m trying to look as scary as possible so these motherfuckers don’t make a move.”
”The Count” also recalls the criminals ”telling him If you want to go home, give me your wallet.” Things then proceeded to get worst as two more men showed up, insisting Bisping get in a car.
”If I get in this car, I’m a dead man, simple as that because they are gonna kill me or rob me and leave me for dead. I’m backing up, there was a little opening and I just f—king ran. They didn’t chase much, and I ran down the street and low and behold there was my f—king hotel.” [Transcript via BJPenn.com]
Its reported that the surrounding areas of Bisping’s hotel are ”no go” areas after night. Citing the frequent instances of stabbings, robbery and shoot outs in the area.
”You motherf—kers, don’t ever tell me this town is not dangerous.”
