Anderson Silva Is The Latest Middleweight To Call Out Michael Bisping For A Title Shot

Well, I could give you million reasons to make the fight against Bisping happen, but the truth is that he is afraid. I'm not going to compare myself to others even mention someone else, but in my perspective I believe I have the right to a fight with him once again, because I have won London's fight and a rematch was promised. However, as he was injured by me during the fight, he wouldn't be prepared to fight too soon, then he was ready to replace someone, but not to face me in Brazil, right? You know I lived an unexpected situation having a surgery, but if it wasn't happened I could fight in Brazil. So, I think it's time to show that I'm serious, I've never asked for a rematch with no adversary, but I do want to have an opportunity of a fight with Bisping, I deserve that for everything I have achieve into the organization saving last time fights' events even in upper categories, fighting injured , broke a leg. I have proved why I am the best in world in this sport and I humbly say that none of my adversaries who supposedly defeated me have achieved or will my actions into the organization. Undoubtely, I believe this rematch will be the best step for UFC and Dana is aware of it, because numbers does tell and as we always have to stand by the group let it bem from both sides. If I could help him to feel more confident and less afraid I would agree to fight him in his hometown, Manchester. 😏😏😏😏😏😏😏😏 Bom, eu poderia dar milhões de motivos para justificar minha luta com o Bisping… Porém de nada irá adiantar, pois percebo uma clara e infeliz insegurança dele aceitar lutar comigo… É uma pena tal sentimento (ele acabou de conquistar o cinturão com os devidos méritos e honra)..! Com o intuito de reduzir tal insegurança e "receio", desde já me coloco a disposição para lutar na casa dele, em Manchester🛫🛫🛫🛫🛫🛫🛫🛫🛫🛫🛫@mikebisping @danawhiteufc

Michael Bisping has been UFC middleweight champ for less than a month and he already has much of the division gunning for him. Perhaps it’s a lack of respect for the Brit’s skills, or a general dislike amongst his peers, but in the last few weeks, we’ve had Dan Henderson say he’d have one last fight as long as it was against Bisping. Both Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman have started trash talk in an effort to gain a shot at their former belts, Georges St-Pierre has said he’d come out of retirement and move up in weight to fight Bisping, and now Anderson Silva is presenting his case for a rematch.

I’ve never asked for a rematch with no adversary, but I do want to have an opportunity of a fight with Bisping, I deserve that for everything I have achieve into the organization saving last time fights’ events even in upper categories, fighting injured , broke a leg. I have proved why I am the best in world in this sport and I humbly say that none of my adversaries who supposedly defeated me have achieved or will my actions into the organization. Undoubtely, I believe this rematch will be the best step for UFC and Dana is aware of it, because numbers does tell and as we always have to stand by the group let it bem from both sides. If I could help him to feel more confident and less afraid I would agree to fight him in his hometown, Manchester.

Basically, Anderson is saying he’s fought people on short notice, fought injured and you could argue was one of the fighters who carried the UFC through some rough years. Anderson thinks he deserves the shot against Bisping, and in turn another shot at the middleweight belt that he held for so long. He did, after all, basically knock him out at the end of the third round in their extremely weird fight earlier this year.

There’s also Jacare Souza, who is near a title shot, as is Yoel Romero. There are legitimately six to seven fights for Bisping, right now. The irony is that they’re all dangerous for him. Bisping is currently on one of the best runs of his entire career, but the names mentioned above, even with Anderson and Dan Henderson in their twilight, are extremely tough matchups for Bisping, who is now 37 years old. If he keeps winning, though, it’ll be one fun ride.
