Michael Bisping being sued over alleged attack at 24-Hour Fitness

According to a news report from TMZ, UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping is being sued for an alleged attack at a 24-Hour Fitness gym in Anaheim, California in July.

The claim states Antonio Georgakopoulos was attacked by the UFC champion for “taking his weights” without asking during a workout.

Georgakopoulos states that Bisping called him an “idiot” and a “punk” before grabbing him by the throat.

Georgakopoulos claims he was about to lose consciousness when another weight lifter intervened and broke it up.

At that point, Bisping allegedly screamed out, “Let’s take this outside.”

Georgakopoulos claims the Anaheim PD was called to the gym and Bisping was arrested for assault and battery.

TMZ states that when they called the Anaheim Police Department they were told that Bisping was not arrested.

The Police took a report and sent the case over to the City Attorney’s Office — which ultimately determined there was NOT enough evidence to proceed with criminal charges against the UFC star.

TMZ states that Bisping complied with the investigation.

Georgakopoulos says he’s had to see doctors for his injuries and now suffers from nightmares and anxiety as a result of the alleged attack.

He’s suing for assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and more.

Bisping defends his middleweight title against former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, Saturday, November 4 at UFC 217.  The fight headlines the pay-per-view fight card that will take place from Madison Square Garden in New York.
