Bisping open to DC fight after he beats GSP

Postby Gogh » Sep 27. 2017, 21:33

When Michael Bisping won the UFC middleweight title last summer, it was a feel-good story fit for Disney, but in a top heavy division filled with a backlog of viable title challengers, the former Ultimate Fighter winner was expected to lose his belt in his first title defense. But thanks to some fortunate circumstances, Bisping has instead avoided all of the top contenders in his weight class, instead having a revenge fight with Dan Henderson and now being set to face former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in his return to the octagon after a four-year retirement. After his fight with St-Pierre, Bisping is supposed to face interim title holder Robert Whittaker in a unification bout but the middleweight champion seems set on continuing the controversial theme of his title reign.

On the most recent episode of his Believe You Me podcast, Bisping said that UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier has been making overtures about a fight with him, and that after he beats St-Pierre, he would be happy to fight Cormier.

“Speaking of guys that think they can take me - which of course when I say this, most people are gonna think he can take me - I was working with Daniel Cormier at the weekend and . . . all he kept talking about all weekend was, ‘Mike, I want to fight you next. I want to fight you.' On air, off air, at the hotel, constantly. He was like, ‘Mike, I will break you within five minutes.' Dude, are you crazy? Do you really believe that?

“I don’t know if he’s joking or if he’s serious, but if he is serious, I’ll fight him next even though I said last week I’m gonna retire. I would fight Daniel Cormier because that would be a huge fight. DC is a great guy, he’s hilarious, hell of a fighter and he seems to be targeting a fight with me. So DC, if you’re serious, which I kind of think you are, then yeah, screw it, if only to annoy everyone in the world I will, again, fight somebody who doesn’t fight at middleweight.”

Bisping’s future plans after the St-Pierre fight have been the cause of much speculation lately and even Bisping admitted that he may retire after the fight depending on how everything goes. But if he doesn’t retire, moving up to challenge Cormier, who was recently reinstated as the light heavyweight champion following the continued issues of Jon Jones, isn’t beyond the pale. After all, Bisping began his career at 205 pounds, winning The Ultimate Fighter season three light heavyweight tournament, and before losing the controversial split decision to Rashad Evans that prompted him to drop down to 185 pounds, amassing an undefeated record as a top prospect in the division. Bisping’s parting shot to Cormier reminded the light heavyweight champion of these facts before issuing him a warning.

“I used to fight at 205, Dan. I was 15-0 so be careful what you wish for.”

Michael Bisping defends his UFC middleweight title against Georges St-Pierre at UFC 217 on Nov. 4 in Madison Square Garden.

I've legit been a fan of bisping since his TUF aperience...  If he wins the gsp fight and then fights DC he will cement him self as thee most diligent and hardest working Mma fighter I'm history imho (regardless of him ducking the hole mw div lol) I love the guy.. anyfight in his home country auto descion has helped... But for real the guys a wizzard... Long live the count!

Dude's lost an eye for the fans, never ducked someone till now, but what's wrong to play it safe after years of wars? He fought the best including the most roid ones. He's deserved the big payday and to be honest Who wouldn't have waited for a bout with GSP? Nobody. He's now willing to fight  DC who's to me the best light heavy weight ever,  jones being a roid cheat. He's the most dedicated ufc fighter and always try to put  a show. Anyway He'll be remembered as the ultimate hard worker and for being victim of the biggest hendos knock out too ! Even if he's not the best,  his resume speaks for himself , He deserves to be ufc champ to some point. And f**k  rockhold and his arrogance :like
