Michael Bisping recently survived several Dan Henderson H-Bombs to defend his title at UFC 204 via unanimous decision victory.

In the weeks leading up to the fight, Bisping reiterated his stance that Henderson was a "cheater" for utilizing TRT (which was legal at the time). If Bisping took offense to that, you can imagine how he feels about fighters who have been caught using PEDs.

On a recent podcast, Bisping had some choice words for former UFC champ Brock Lesnar, who tested positive for estrogen blockers in both his in-competition and out-of-competition drug tests at UFC 200.

"Listen, I respect any man that steps into the Octagon because it takes balls," Bisping said on The Ric Flair Show. "But, if you have to go in there and take steroids to do it? F--k you... I will knock Brock Lesnar out with one f--king punch. I will take him and throw him out of the Octagon."

Lesnar failed a drug test leading up to his fight against Mark Hunt at UFC 200, but has not yet had a hearing before the Nevada Athletic Commission to state why he failed the test, nor has he offered any public comment on the matter.

Bisping has been outspoken against fighters caught for using steroids.

"F--k steroids," he added. "Steroids have destroyed the sport and anyone that takes them, kiss my ass ... real men don’t cheat in a real fight. In your world, you have to look good, you have to be big and it’s expected for the audience. You guys, good for you, good for you. In a real fight, we shouldn’t be cheating and taking steroids."

Bisping is currently riding high off of 2016 victories over Luke Rockhold, Anderson Silva, and most recently, a middleweight title defense against Dan Henderson.
