Conor McGregor and Michael Bisping have a lot in common, both being quick-witted, trash-talking former UFC champions.
They also both transitioned from combat sports to acting and rub shoulders with the Hollywood elite.
Bisping starred in films such as “XXX: Return of Xander Cage” alongside Vin Diesel, with whom he is still friends, and Samuel L Jackson.
And next, he’s set to appear in “Den of Thieves 2” with Gerard Butler, after making a cameo appearance in the first film.
Meanwhile, McGregor will make his acting debut alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in Amazon Prime’s new reimagining of the 1980s classic “Road House.”
That being said, Bisping won’t be getting any acting advice from McGregor, as he told talkSPORT: “I don’t need advice from Conor McGregor on anything in life.
“I don’t need advice from Conor. I’ve been acting since 2009, I’ve done quite a bit, I have about 20 movie credits.
“Conor, what is he doing, he just made his acting debut, I don’t need any advice, I have acting coaches for that.”
Discussions then turned to McGregor’s next move in the UFC, with the Irishman having not fought since 2021.
He was then scheduled to face Michael Chandler, but he currently remains outside the USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) doping control pool and he must be entered for six months if he wants to fight.
But Bisping still believes the fight will happen, as he said: “He should fight Michael Chandler, that was the fight that was announced and was supposed to happen.
“Obviously there are some administrative hurdles and things to overcome with the USADA testing pool and things like that.
“I believe it’s going to happen, you can say what you want about Conor McGregor, but you can’t say the man isn’t ready to fight or take a test, he is, and I respect that about him.
“So I think the fight with Michael Chandler will happen, it’s going to be a sensational fight, I think Michael Chandler is exciting, he brings it every time he’s in the Octagon and that’s one of nicest guys you’ve ever met along the way, so it’s going to be an amazing fight.”
