Fresh off a knee surgery which kept him out of a UFC 149 bout with Tim Boetsch, Michael Bisping is already eyeing a return to the octagon at UFC 152. After losing a contentious decision to number-one contender Chael Sonnen in January, the Brit is now focused on one thing, winning the UFC Middleweight title.
Bisping proclaimed on UFC Tonight’s “Ask The Analyst” segment the he wants to move closer to a title shot, naming two potential opponents. The first being All-American Brian Stann, who the Brit remained mum about, simply saying “he’s a good fighter but I know his shoulder is injured.”
The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner did have some choice words for his second option, Alan Belcher. “Alan Belcher’s somebody that’s been calling me out for what seems like forever now. To be quite frank, I’m sick of it. So, Alan Belcher if your balls are big enough call Joe Silva and let’s do it,” demanded the Brit.
While a match-up with either man is promising and would certainly put the winner in the middleweight title picture, the ostensible bad blood between Bisping and Belcher would make an excellent addition to the UFC’s return to Toronto.
