Michael Bisping has responded to Chris Weidman's recent taunt, when he suggested the Brit was mentally fragile.

Weidman and Bisping both have designs on the UFC middleweight title, and both are trying to talk their way into a title shot.

The American recently gave his views on Bisping, pointing out that whenever No. 1 contender fights arrive, the Brit fails to deliver. Losses to Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen have denied Bisping a shot at Anderson Silva - and Weidman claims that isn't down to misfortune.

"I think he's a really great fighter, I really do, but I question his mentality against top guys when the pressure is on," he told Fighters Only.

Bisping has now responded on Twitter, saying: "Chris the Wiesel Weidman saying I fold under pressure. Hahahahaha I needed a good laugh this morning."
