Michael Bisping wanted to fight at UFC 206 next month, but it looks like that is no longer an option. On“UFC Tonight,” the middleweight champion ruled himself out of the December pay-per-view card, stating that he is still recovering from a fractured orbital and a leg injury.

“I’ve never ducked anybody in my life,” Bisping said on FOX Sports 1. “Now, I know what everybody at home is going to say: ‘Didn’t you call out GSP a couple of weeks ago?’ Yes, I did, but really, think about this — that was a massive payday. Roughly $3-4 million dollars I would have earned for that fight. Against Jacare, I’m going to get around about a quarter.

“As you all know, I fought Dan Henderson very recently. I have a fractured orbital. I’m getting PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections. I don’t know what they are, but it sounds fancy. I’m getting them on Friday in my leg. I’m limping around the place. I’ve got a fractured orbital.”
