The gritty Brit has dusted himself off and is promising excellence in his next Octagon appearance, which just happens to be in front of his hometown peeps of Manchester, England.
“I can’t wait to fight in Manchester again, it will be good to fight in front of my own supporters again,” Bisping told the Manchester Evening News. “I want a top fighter in Manchester. I want to get back up there straight away. That’s what I have told the UFC.”
He certainly didn’t look his best in his second round knockout loss at UFC 100, as Dan Henderson controlled the fight from start to finish. Bisping lacked the relentlessness that had him on the brink of a title shot had he been victorious, and that is perhaps why he wound up down for “The Count.”
UFC 105 is slated to jump off inside the Manchester Evening News Arena and word on the street is that the UFC and Spike TV intend on making it available for free via same-day tape delay.
