UFC champ Michael Bisping let a intense post-fight press conference get the best of him, and got caught on camera dropping the f-bomb at his recently defeated opponent Luke Rockhold. (Yeah, these sound like porn star names to us, too.)

We’re gonna file this one more under “trash talk gone too far” than virulent homophobia, though we definitely realize this kind of talk is why violent homophobia still survives.
