Michael Bisping has the middleweight title, and is now set to defend it for the first time at UFC 205 against Dan Henderson. But former champion Chris Weidman isn't letting Bisping (or anyone else for that matter) forget who had it first.

"I think Chris Weidman should be embarrassed he got his ass kicked by Luke Rockhold," Bisping said during a recent UFC 204 press conference. "The guy that I knocked out in two minutes incidentally. I think that's what he's embarrassed about."

Bisping stepped in for Weidman after he was forced to withdraw from his UFC 199 bout with Rockhold. On just over two weeks notice, "The Count" went on to defeat Rockhold via a first round TKO, something Weidman was unable to do.

"For a guy who spouts off about Jesus and all this he needs to take a good long look in the mirror cuz he's kinda acting like a dick these days," Bisping added.

Weidman has voiced his anger in the past at being passed over for the next title shot for Dan Henderson, a fighter who has admitted he will retire after the fight, win or lose.

"Win a fight and you'll get yours don't worry," Bisping responded.

Bisping is set to defend the middleweight belt against Henderson in a rematch seven years in the making. The pair meet in Bisping's hometown of Manchester, England on Oct. 8.
