Michael Bisping Thinks His ‘Pillow Fists’ Can Easily KO Anderson Silva

Michael “The Count” Bisping has been clawing away at 185 since he made the move to middleweight after winning the third season of The Ultimate Fighter at light-heavyweight.

His schedule opponent, Mark Munoz, knows that he has the more powerful punch and plans to put Bisping away in front of his home crowd of Manchester, England.

Although Bisping has a solid opponent ahead of him, he still remains interested in someday fighting Anderson Silva, and says that he could have taken the belt by knockout, as Chris Weidman did at UFC 162.

“Obviously it would always be a dream of mine to fight Anderson Silva and be the guy to take the title, of course. Yeah I was a little disappointed and I’m not taking anything away from his win, but we all know Anderson Silva was acting like an idiot and he got knocked out. It would have been nice to be the guy that did it, so congratulations to Chris, he’s the new champion and certainly a formidable force at middleweight, but yeah, it stinks a little. I could have easily done that.”

Bisping has fallen short of a shot at the title several times. Most recently, a head kick knockout loss to Vitor Belfort in Brazil.
