    Michael Bisping: ‘I’m Ready to (Expletive) Take the Title Off of Anderson Silva’

    Michael Bisping: ‘I’m Ready to (Expletive) Take the Title Off of Anderson Silva’
    Posted on September 12, 2012 by Damon Martin


    Some might say that UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva‘s reign of terror at 185lbs has cleared out every major contender the weight class currently offers.

    There are a quite a few fighters sitting in the top ten of the division however that haven’t faced Silva yet and would love their chance to prove everybody wrong.

    Michael Bisping sits among those top ten middleweights all hoping to get the next crack at Anderson Silva.

    Recently, Bisping sat down with MMAWeekly Radio to break down and give his thoughts on the middleweight division, and the list of contenders who all believe they deserve a shot at Anderson Silva.

    Of course, Bisping didn’t hold anything back when giving his opinion on any of the fighters that might be standing in his way of getting to Anderson Silva.

    “There’s Alan Belcher, who’s a decent talent, no pun intended. He’s decent, but I think I match-up very well with him and I think I take him apart pretty easily. I don’t really see him vying for the title, or doing very well at all,” Bisping said.

    The Brit then moved on to former NCAA champion Mark Munoz, who is currently recovering from elbow and foot injuries after a loss to Chris Weidman in July.

    “You’ve got Mark Munoz – Mark Munoz who I never really thought was that good anyways. He was a wrestler with a very suspect chin, terrible boxing, and a style he refers to as ‘Donkey Kong’. I think anyone that refers to themselves as Donkey Kong needs to take a good look at themselves, and he was exposed when he fought Chris Weidman. I never thought he was that good to start with,” Bisping stated.

    “Is he a nice guy? Yeah, he’s a (expletive) ace guy, one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Do I think he’s all that? No, I thought he was overhyped all the time.”

    So what about Chris Weidman?

    He currently sits atop the contender’s list for most people ranking the middleweight division, but Bisping isn’t sold on him at all and believes he’s another fighter ranked too high just waiting to be exposed.

    “Chris Weidman, I think he’s overhyped as well. Up until the point when he fought Demian Maia I had never heard of Chris Weidman before in my life because he had been fighting bums on the undercard. Then he fights Demian Maia and I had to turn the TV off in my dressing room because it was the most boring fight I’ve ever seen in my life,” Bisping explained.

    “Upon that he fights Mark Munoz, and yeah he beats him, but if I remember right the crowd booed unbelievably throughout the first round because he just laid on him. Then he knocked him out with an elbow, but that’s due to the fact that Mark Munoz came in out of shape, unfocused, and looking like he was at a rock concert and not a UFC fight.”
    “Brian Stann, obviously I’m fighting him in 10 days, so we’ll see what’s up with that. I’m confident in beating him so we don’t really need to talk about that,” said Bisping.

    Once Bisping carves up and whittles down the other contenders list, it obviously only leaves one name remaining for the fighter who should be facing Anderson Silva next.

    “So who does that leave? Oh yeah, that leaves me,” Bisping stated.

    “I’ve been here for a long, long time and I’m ready to (expletive) take the title off of Anderson Silva. I don’t just want a title shot, I want to win the title. I’m a fighter, I don’t want a payday, I want to be the champ and I believe I can be.”

    Bisping: I'l mince Brian Stann's arse like burger meat - Mixed Martial Arts News
    Michael Bisping and Brian Stann fight on September 22, with the winner in the mix for a title shot. "The Count" has the trash talk in full effect, both for his opponent, and Stann's coach of record Greg Jackson.

    "From what I understand, Stann isn't training with Jackson anymore," Bisping told Yahoo! Sports. "But who the hell cares either way? Come on, guys. Just because Stann trained with some smug git from New Mexico who can quote the Ninja Turtles, doesn't mean he's got some mystical insight to beat me.

    "Listen, Greg Jackson has a smug grin on his face when his gameplans go well, but when they go tits up he's not there going: "Well, blame me, folks. The fighter just followed my stupid ideas."

    "Brian Stann isn't a fighter who can follow through with a sophisticated strategy. I mean this with all due respect for a guy who is clearly a powerful athlete, a determined guy and who hits like a truck but Stann is not a massively talented fighter.

    "I know what he's going to do. He is going to throw a leg kick - like he always does - and try to take my head off with a right hand. And, hey, Stann can do it; I have a good chin but Stann can knock anyone in the division out with his power.

    "But that's not going to happen. A stupid mistake aside, I mince Brian Stann's arse like burger meat nine times out of 10. I've not seen too much evolution in his game. He's the same guy, someone who will always be dangerous but isn't a top talent in the division and never will be.

    "Stann has talked big about how he's going to put me to sleep. Well, that's a fact. I can't avoid it. None of us can. Brian is going to tell some more deathly boring old war stories at the pre-fight press conference, and we are all going to be in for a snooze.

    "I was kicking arse in the UFC when Stann was peeling potatoes, shining shoes and getting called a "maggot" by some red-faced sergeant in the Marines. This isn't warfare, this is MMA, and I'm better at it than Brian Stann will ever be. On September 22, Brian Stann is getting knocked out - fast. He won't last as long as a virgin on prom night."

    Brian Stann the 'devastating striker' will 'surprise' Michael Bisping at UFC 152
    http://www.mmamania.com/2012/9/11/33...isping-ufc-152
    "There's a great deal of respect. I feel that Mike is not only a good fighter, I feel he's a great fighter, everywhere. The one thing he is underestimating, obviously, is my ability to improve. I haven't been doing this as long as him or some of his peers. That means my learning curve and my ability to get better, quicker, is a little bit longer. I've improved, in a lot of ways, since the fight with our common opponent, Chael Sonnen. I've actually gone out to train with him, several times now, since our fight. A lot of the areas he feels he's stronger than me -- I think he'll be quite surprised. I feel like I'm the more devastating striker. I do not feel like he has the advantage there. I also feel like I'm the better wrestler, and he's going to be surprised when he tries to take this one to the mat."

    Odd, right? You acknowledged you are a Bisping fan, opined that he would beat Stann, and even - gasp! - suggested that some of the negative comments about Bisping's fighting abitlity may in fact be caused by posters' dislike of Bisping's personality. You even had the AUDACITY to state that the perception of Bisping may be in part due to cultural clash and a misunderstanding of English humour (especially that of the "piss-taking" sub genre.)

    How dare you, DanC!!!! This outrage will not go unanswered!!! Rageflame: ENGAGE!

    I think the total absence of negative reaction to your post was not due to your opinions, but the fuckwittery-free manner in which you expressed them.

    Fortunately, you have years and years of practice in expressing your opinion in a civil, positive fashion. Unlike some.

    Personally I have it in for FCK. Bisping I don't mind: he impressed me big time against Sonnen because I thought Chael would steamroll him.

    Bisping should beat Stann, and I'd pick him to beat most middleweights out there. The guy is certainly talented, and it's only a matter of time before he's gonna be beating top ten/five fighters.

    I don't even find him that annoying/cocky: 90% of the time it seems like he's on the windup.
