Michael Bisping is not certain to get a title shot should he get past Dan Henderson at UFC 100, contrary to numerous reports circulated yesterday.

Several UK newspapers reported on Tuesday that Bisping was "guaranteed" a middleweight title shot on a British UFC show late 2007, should he beat Henderson.

But a source close to Bisping tells Fighters Only that the reports had "taken 2 + 2 and made 5".

i think if bisping beats henderson he should get a title shot. there are a couple other guys that deserve one though too. maia i think being the most deserving. also, marquardt i think should get another shot at silva. if okami ever could stay healthy i think if he wins one fight he should then get a title shot as well.

If I were Bisping I would be arguing for a non-title shot after beating Hendo. He knows what would happen if he fought for the title. Man if I were him I'd be pretty scared right now as it is.

If Bisping does beat Hendo, why doesn't he deserve a title shot? Not saying he'll win against Silva or Hendo, but you've got to admit that dispatching Hendo would say something about the caliber of fighter he is. Give the guy at least a chance before you shoot him down- he's got a big test in front of him.

If Bisping defeats Hendo then I think he has earned himself a title shot, but Bisping beating Henderson seems a bit unrealistic.

best thing is for silva to give up middleweight belt and fight at light heavy till he retires

it won't happen but we have bisping/hendo winner
okami for a title shot and
marquadt/maia winner
that is 3 boys lined up for shots
**** have silva defend every 4months till his contract is up then
why have him fight at light heavy when he has so many legitimate challengers knocking at his door

Bisping is gonna get man handled and then tko'd by Henderson so I wouldn't worry about this too much.

None of this really matters anyway- cause Bisping is going to lose. But he would absolutely get first crack at a title shot if he wins. ZUFFA is hungry for a new chanllenger to Silva's strap. And for as huge a draw as the COunt is in the UK, they could probably aim to fill a stadium like Wembly for that show. They would do huge numbers at the gate (very big, big numbers).

They are hoping and praying that Bisping wins this fight. And a title shot would absolutely be next.
