"My right arm, and this is the first time I've mentioned this, I have a trapped nerve in my neck and need surgery on my neck," Bisping said. "The way they've described it is that if you stand on a hosepipe, a lot of the water doesn't get through. The nerves along my right arm aren't getting through. You could squeeze my pec, really get your nails into it, and I wouldn't feel a thing."
"My right arm is so much weaker than my left, it's called atrophy, my muscle is wasting away because nerve signals aren't getting through," Bisping explained. "I need that taken care of but I've been fighting so much that I haven't had time for the treatment ... My hand, I can't even make a fist because I keep going into fight after fight after fight. Really what I need is six months off -- but I don't want to take six months off. I like what I do, I like to be kept busy."
Bisping has been one of the UFC's most active fighters over the past half-decade, and he could definitely benefit from some time away from the cage.
Perhaps after his UFC 159 fight with Belcher, the UFC will grant him some time off to recharge his batteries and get the surgery he desires.
