Michael Bisping Looks Ahead To A Middleweight Championship Fight

Michael Bisping waits to hear if he’s next to try and stop Anderson Silva’s (33-4) UFC run, but the rumor that Georges St-Pierre (22-2) might be next has Bisping taking notice. If the two champions were to fight, which Bisping thinks his doubtful on St-Pierre’s part, he has Silva clearly getting the win.

“It sounds to me, reading between the lines, I don’t think GSP’ is really keen on it,” said Bisping on MMA Junkie. “I think he realizes that it’s not a good fight for him, to be honest. He’s said it’s a giant pain in the a** to always talk about Anderson Silva, and I’m sure it would be a giant pain in the jaw, as well.”

“It is frustrating, but I also understand it,” said Bisping. “I understand it from Silva’s perspective. I understand it from the UFC’s perspective.

Bisping still isn’t confident the Silva vs. St-Pierre will happen.

“Who knows if they’ll step up and try and fight each other,” said Bisping. “I’ll just be waiting for my shot.”
