Tim Sylvia has offered a response to those who have ripped him over his criticism of Michael Bisping’s Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Hall of Fame induction.
Bisping retired following back-to-back finishing losses to Georges St-Pierre and Kelvin Gastelum. He didn’t walk away from the sport of mixed martial arts before capturing the UFC middleweight gold. Bisping even had a successful title defense against Dan Henderson. He’s been regarded as a pioneer for MMA in Europe.
