UFC fighter did not take long to slam Demi Lovato’s rumored relationship with Luke Rockhold. He did not hold back on his feelings when TMZ asked him what he thought about Luke dating the former Disney star.
According to MMA Weekly, Michael Bisping trashed Luke Rockhold and Demi Lovato’s rumored romance in a new interview with TMZ. When he was asked about the hot new couple, he asked the photographers how old Lovato is. Lovato is 24 and Rockhold is 31-years-old, notes the report.

“Early 20s, alright. Well, he’d have to get someone young because he’s kind of dumb,” Bisping said. “He hasn’t got too much going on between the ears.”
It certainly didn’t take Michael long to blast Demi, as well.
“He certainly couldn’t pull any woman with any intelligence, come on, let’s be honest,” Bisping added. “Maybe he could with his looks, but after a minute once you scratch the surface, you realize he’s a dumb guy.”
Bisping has backtracked on his latest statements. He admitted that he had no idea who the “Cool for the Summer” singer is. He then realized that Lovato probably knows who he is since she’s a huge UFC fan.
“I swear to God I don’t even know who Demi Lovato is. My son has a crush on her. Apparently, he was sat next to her when I knocked Luke Rockhold out, so Demi Lovato knows who I am, that’s for sure.”
The UFC middleweight is enjoying the highs of his life and career right now, according to Sports Joe. After a decade playing in the sport, he finally knocked out Rockhold in the UFC 199 main event. He’s been regularly trashing Rockhold ever since his victory. Next, he’s set to fight Dan Henderson in the main event of UFC 2014 in December. But, he won’t stop from attacking Luke Rockhold any chance he can get.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Lovato and Rockhold have been dating on the down-low for the past few months. What started out as a summer fling turned into something more, according to Us Weekly.
“She’s just trying to have fun right now,” an insider told the publication. “They’ve been talking, hanging out and hooking up, and they like each other. They’re both having fun and enjoying it for what it is.”
The two have been reportedly sending each other secret messages on social media, according to TMZ. Last month, the UFC middleweight champion shared a photo on Instagram that showed a smiley-face tattoo on his pinky finger.
Just days later, Lovato posted a video on Instagram with the same doodle, writing, “Cause life’s too short not to tattoo your pinky.”
Lovato was previously linked to MMA pro fighter Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos, who she met at the same gym where she reportedly met Rockhold. Since then, new reports suggested that Rockhold could only be dating Lovato for the fame. Million Dollar Matchmaker’s Candace Smith warned Lovato, via WetPaint, that Rockhold is someone who’s fame hungry.
“Luke came on the show for fame rather than love. He wants to be the Kendall Jenner of UFC and is probably dating Demi for publicity,” she told Life & Style magazine.
When he appeared on the show in 2015, he insisted that he was looking for his soulmate, but ended up making the moves on Candace, who serves as Patti Stanger’s Director of Recruiting.
Candace also warned the “Body Say” singer that he could be a ladies’ man.
“He’s always in Vegas with different young women. I really don’t see him as the committed type who focuses on one woman for the right reasons.”
Lovato split from boyfriend of six years, Wilmer Valderrama, back in June, with the two releasing a joint statement on social media.
