'Step your game up!' - Michael Bisping has a message for Conor McGregor

Bisping says he’s responsible for the fastest sell-out for a UFC event in Europe.

MICHAEL BISPING WILL feature in the main event when the UFC heads to Scotland for the first time this summer.

In doing so, the English middleweight claims that UFC Fight Night 72 in Glasgow has broken the record for the fastest sell-out for a UFC event in Europe.

Until now, that record was held by UFC Fight Night 46 — headlined by Conor McGregor versus Diego Brandao — which took place last July at the 3Arena in Dublin.

However, speaking to, Bisping teased McGregor by insisting that his 18 July bout against Thales Leites sold out even quicker when tickets went on sale recently.

Bisping said: “Fastest sell-out in the history of the European UFC. Conor McGregor, Dublin, sorry my friends. Bigger arena, more people, fastest sell-out, that’s how you do it. Step your game up, Conor!”
