Michael Bisping Must Pass Eye Exam For The UFC After Having Cataract Removed

Michael Bisping has been stuck on the sidelines since September due to an eye injury, he was set to face off against “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Mark Munoz at UFC Fight Night 30 in October of 2013 in but his eye injury, a detached retina in his right eye he obtained during training, caused him to have to step back from the fight.

Bisping has since had his surgery which success and is well on his way to making a full recovery. He may even make appear in the Octagon sometime this year if he is able to pass the peripheral eye exam.

“The UFC’s medical team spoke to my doctor and I have been asked to take a peripheral eye test,” stated Bisping. “So I can only hope that I get through it. I’ll have to see how it goes. I am also having a cataract removed, which should improve the vision, but I’m at the mercy of how the test goes now.”
