UFC Champ Michael Bisping Says He’s Earned “Biggest Fight” Next
By FCF Staff
Michael Bisping has said he’s willing to fight #1 contender Yoel Romero, but the middleweight champion is still campaigning for a big money fight next.
Since Romero took out Chris Weidman with a vicious flying knee in November, the expectation has been that he’ll face Bisping next. Recently Bisping revealed that he’s undergoing minor knee surgery soon and that he won’t be able to fight until spring. Since then, the British star spoke with Champions.co, and Bisping had this to say about his next bout (quotes via MMA Junkie):
“I want the biggest fight I can get,” Bisping said. “I don’t mind facing No. 1 contenders, but at this stage of my career, I’ve fought the best guys forever. I want the biggest fight it can possibly be. And by biggest, I mean the biggest money-generating fight I can possibly have. I feel I deserve that. I’ve earned that.”
“If that’s Yoel Romero, great,” Bisping said. “(But) if it ain’t Yoel Romero, if it’s Anderson Silva, great – I know he’s piped up again (about wanting a rematch) lately. If it’s ‘GSP,’ I don’t care who the opponent is….I will take on all comers.But I want the biggest fight possible.”
Bisping is coming off a tightly contested, decision win over the legendary Dan Henderson in October.
