Anderson Silva Wants Rematch With Michael Bisping, Has Informed UFC
By FCF Staff
After dropping a tightly contested, decision loss to Michael Bisping in February, Anderson Silva has called on the UFC to book him a rematch with the newly crowned, middleweight champ.
Silva and Bisping fought at UFC Fight Night 84 earlier this year, and the latter worked his way to a UD win. Bisping was bloodied and battered during the fight, however, and Silva argued that he had in fact won.
Since then, Silva was forced to undergo emergency, gall bladder surgery, while Bisping KO’d Luke Rockhold earlier this month to become middleweight champ. Recently there’s been plenty of speculation as to who Bisping will face in his first title defense, and clearly Silva thinks it should be him.
Recently the former champ made this post on Instagram:
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.
