Michael Bisping to Chael Sonnen: Get Back In Line To Face Anderson Silva
by Scott "Kubryk" Sawitz on October 13, 2011

The buzz this week has been on Chael Sonnen’s pro-wrestling style call out of current UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva for a rematch. But one fighter who wasn’t impressed with Sonnen’s steam-rolling of Brian Stann was Michael Bisping, Season 3 Ultimate Fighter Winner and also “in the mix” for a title shot should he get past Jason “Mayhem” Miller at this fall’s Season 14 Ultimate Fighter Finale. He told Fighter’s Only Magazine plenty of good information, including the following:

“I feel I deserve a shot. I have got to beat Miller, he is tough, I am not looking past him. [But] its me, I’m the contender. Belfort has just been beat, Yushin Okami has just been beat, Sonnen got beat. What are they going to do, all they all going to keep beating each other up and then having another shot at him?

“I feel I match quite well with Anderson believe it or not, I think stylistically I will give him a good match up. I will do a better job than everyone has lately, Anderson hasn’t even been in a fight lately. They haven’t pressured him, they haven’t turned it into a fight. The last fight Anderson had was against Chael Sonnen,” he said.

Does he have as good a chance as Chael? We really can’t answer that right now because we have evidence that Sonnen can potentially beat Silva via their fight and don’t with Bisping. Sonnen is the compelling matchup at this point but you can make a case that Bisping has earned a shot with a win over Miller.
