Michael Bisping didn’t have to look far in recruiting help for this Saturday’s UFC 110 fight against Wanderlei Silva.
Who better to get advice from than former UFC light heavyweight champ and Wolfslair MMA Academy teammate Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, who has faced Wandy three times already.
“Rampage and Wanderlei have shared a legendary series of fights, and I am very much looking forward to getting the inside scoop on Silva,” Bisping wrote in The Daily Telegraph.
The middleweights are set to square off on February 21st inside the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia. It will mark Silva’s first venture into the division owned by fellow Brazillian Anderson Silva.
After an impressive win over Denis Kang at UFC 105, Bisping feels confident that he can handle Silva’s punching power because of his daily work with Rampage.
“Rampage will get me used to taking that kind of brutal power,” a confident Bisping continued. “I’m planning on one thing and one thing only – going out to Australia and beating Wanderlei Silva up.”
“UFC 110: Nogueira Vs. Velasquez” takes place tomorrow night at Sydney, Australia’s Acer Arena.
