Michael Bisping is ready for his first title shot and a win over Mark Munoz could open up those doors for the Brit. Like most of his fights, Bisping doesn’t seem too intimidated by Munoz.
“When I look at him he’s a very sloppy striker,” said Bisping on the Rick J Lee channel. “You could say somewhat one dimensional, so I’m gonna expose that weakness. On the feet, I think it’s a one-sided fight. Yes, he’s got power, but I’ve got much better, faster and more precise striking. As soon as that referee says ‘go,’ I’m going to beat the s— out of him from pillar to post for the entire 25 minutes.”
In January, Bisping had his title hopes squashed when Vitor Belfort took a second round win. “The Count” is 24-5 and will enter the Octagon off a technical decision from Alan Belcher at UFC 159 in April.
Munoz returned after a year off for a decision win from Tim Boetsch last month. He had four straight wins before future champion Chris Weidman disposed of him.
They’ll headline the October 26 UFC Fight Night 30 show. It’s from the Manchester Arena in England.
